The Bank House Café
This welcoming shop and café is found in the centre of the pretty Victorian/Edwardian village of Whitehead and is very much a destination in its own right. You will eat and drink quality, locally sourced food and drink and afterwards shop to your heart’s content. There are lots of things you won’t find easily anywhere else, particularly in the gift section including good quality local craft.
Its list of local suppliers reads like a Best of Northern Ireland. Owner Sinead Mone gets her coffee from local roastery Bailies, her yoghurt from Clandeboye, her muesli from Just Live and Little, her deli meat from Quails, stewing meats from McMasters butchers and her bread from the local McKees bakery.
Sinead’s Avoca style salads are dressed with Broighter Gold rapeseed oil and Burren Balsamics vinegar. She also uses Irish Black Butter and sells Neary Nogs chocolate and Sea Sugar confectionary.
Look forward to yummy breakfasts, elevenses, lunches and afternoon teas. You will find yourself popping in at any time of the day, and on a warm day sitting in the beautifully landscaped café garden with the lifesize Willow Man and Horse pulling a plough, created by Welig Heritage Crafts, or on a showery day, sheltering in one of the Bank House Coloured Houses with your coffee.
