Pub Grub

The recent re-invigoration of the Northern Ireland food scene has spread to our many pubs, where you will find the best of our local produce served in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. If you're fond of your beer, the Hilden Brewery in Lisburn is a must, where you’ll see one of Northern Ireland’s micro-breweries in operation.
