Since opening its doors, the restaurant has remained one of Belfast’s best places to dine, tasting great local produce. Ryan Stringer, our forward-thinking Executive Head Chef, has been at the helm since 2021 and has developed the menu, pushing the boundaries of taste, texture and flavour, earning him and his team many plaudits from the 100 Best Restaurants in Ireland 2023 by the Sunday Times, McKenna’s Guides to LCN Chef of the year.
Ryan and his team focus on local, ethically sourced, sustainable produce enhanced by a wealth of international experience. The charcoal grill influences the menu, showcasing Tyrone Beef alongside sustainable fish on menus. Our set menus offer 2 and 3-course options, and we have the best Sunday Roast in Belfast.
A comprehensive wine list from around the world is available, and wines can be perfectly matched to your food on request. The team has curated an extensive cocktail menu, which serves classic cocktails alongside weekly specials. An Irish whiskey collection also takes pride of place on the bar, with the whole Bushmills collection available to taste.
