Our Pub derives its history from the ancient shores of Ireland.

Our Publican, Brian McMullan, is the grandson of Thomas McMullan who, back in 1908, bought Glenarm’s ‘Farmer’s Hotel’ from Mr Thomas Charles for 780 Pounds. For his price, he not only got the pub, but also Mr Charles’ horses & Undertaking business. Therein began the publican dynasty, the fruits of which you see here today. Indeed, Thomas also bought another watering hole in 1919, this one called the ‘Seaview Hotel’ which the family held on to until just after WWII when we sold it on to Mr James McAllister. This, incidentally, is now a private residence. Following Thomas’ death in 1934, his son Jim McMullan faithfully continued the family businesses. Jim, a keen member of the local boxing club & during the war years active in the local Platoon Home Guard, worked hard until 1974 when, at his passing, the pub (today known as ‘The Coast Road Inn’) was sold out of the family to the McConnell's of Ballyclare.

So, from the family’s early beginnings in farming, we moved into the pub business & the undertaking business, never mind running the only taxi service & post office in town. A regular entrepreneur, in 1915, Thomas was the first in the area to secure a motor car for funeral services! Still, the pubs thrived, remembered all these years later as always having good crowds, & they were renowned for their traditional pints & food thanks to the fresh produce from the farm, fresh salmon from the Antrim river & an abundance of locally caught seafood. And so, for generations, we have prided ourselves on serving wholesome food to compliment the pouring of a perfect pint.

Take a look around at the memorabilia around the pub. You’ll find many artifacts from the old pubs, old photographs of the family and their friends and, of course, be sure to enjoy our old family recipes!!
