Housed in the only listed, thatched building in the county, the Watermill was opened in 2010 by Pascal Brissaud, formerly of the Manor Park restaurant in Armagh. His French heritage is stamped all over the menu. He calls it “FR-Irish” food.
We adore the duo of donegal lobster and king prawns in a light garlic creamy sauce, pan fried king scallops leek fondu, light chablis beurre blanc, Casserole of beef and pork belly in a red wine sauce, baby vegetables.
Most popular though is the traditional Sunday roast rib of beef. It’s slow cooked for 36 hours and just melts in the mouth. The vegetables and herbs come from his garden on site while the meat is locally sourced. Two courses start at just £19.95.
The wine list is also worth a mention. There are some interesting choices at reasonable prices. Pascal keeps it in a special cave. All that, and stunning views of Lough Erne.
