We have a passion for local, seasonal produce which John showcases in our daily dinner menu. We have a small orchard which provides fruits for desserts, chutneys and preserves, and is home to our friendly chickens that lay wonderful eggs for breakfast. Homegrown soft fruit and vegetables also feature in our dinner menu. Our "Ulster Fry" is legendary and we won the "Best Breakfast in Ireland" recently at the Irish Breakfast awards.
