Harry’s Shack, essentially a shed owned by the National Trust on the edge of the dunes at Portstewart beach, was opened by the team behind Harry’s Restaurant who are based in Bridgend where they have their own two-acre farm supplying much of the fruit and veg served here.
Based on rave reviews in the papers as well as from friends, we decided it was well worth a visit whilst we were close by, and we were not disappointed! When we walked in - glad to have reserved a table at the jam packed shack - we were taken through the roughly hewn wooden tables of all sizes and were seated (rather ideally) near the wood-burner.
Being right on the coast it would be ridiculous not to try the fish, we had a huge portion of mussels for starter and for main I had some delicious lemon sole with capers and cockles. The restaurant was warm and inviting, the staff friendly and attentive and the view incredible. It just proves that sometimes simplicity really is all that is needed.
