Cross Square Hotel- the home of Nanny’s Apple Pie
Armagh’s famous Bramley Apples are never more delicious than when baked in an apple pie. The recipe at the Cross Square Hotel, set on the Square in the South Armagh village, is a family secret.
Nanny’s Bramley apple buns were first cooked at the family butchers across the Square by Bridie Carragher. She worked in the last hotel in Crossmaglen; the Commercial, as a young girl. That early start in the hospitality industry is now continued by her son Eugene and granddaughter Fiona.
They make sure her Bramley Apple buns are served to tourists who visit the Cross Square Hotel. They’re just delicious with, or without a dollop of fresh cream and that all important cuppa.
Call in for one next time you’re down that way, or make a special trip. It’ll be worth it!
