Blackthorn _ left this review about The Nook

Located in a somewhat barren and windswept location adjacent to the car park for the Giant’s Causeway’s visitor centre, this is a decent little pub with a beer garden to the side, although we did not investigate this.

Internally it has something of a nautical feel perhaps which befits it’s location, with pale blue wood panelling on the lower part of the walls, white plasterwork above and polished wooden boards on the floor, as well as a wood panelled, curved bar counter. A small fire was blazing away which was a welcome touch on a cold and blustery day, and a number of black oil style lamps hung from the ceiling. A few black and white photos of the causeway were dotted around the walls. Tables were unusual and somewhat disconcerting, in that the outer few inches sloped down at quite an angle – if your pint wasn’t positioned sufficiently far from the edge, it would have ended up in your lap!

The solitary beer on tap was Macardle’s Traditional Ale whilst the only cider was Magners. Overall, not the most exciting place, but a convenient pit stop for some refreshment after walking along the coast.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Nook At The Causeway

Attractive building on the approach to the fancy new Giants Causeway visitor centre, housing a fairly compact split-level multi-room layout. Also has outdoor seating on the narrow front/side terrace and a few benches on the small grassed area below. No real ale, but keg versions of the local Whitewater Belfast Ale and Belfast Lager are available at £3.80. Less touristy than I was expecting, and not a bad spot for a pint.

Housed in a very attractive old building which looks as if it was once a small school, this has been modernised considerably inside. Both food and drink were on the expensive side and live music was provided by an elderly gentlemen who was clearly intent on extracting payment from the customers in addition to any fee he might already be receiving. A useful place to have a pint if you've just walked back up the path from the Giant's Causeway, but not as appealing as it promises to be from first appearances. The beer garden at the front is probably preferable, weather permitting, to the interior.
