Brunel’s Restaurant

“Good food comes from the heart”. That is the creed of Brunel’s head chef, Paul Cunningham, and a byline for this young, but innovative restaurant based above the Anchor Bar in Newcastle, in the shadow of the Mountains Of Mourne.

With a focus on bold and creative dishes full of texture and flavour, Brunel’s uses only the freshest in regionally sourced ingredients.  An avid forager, Paul has an extremely naturalistic approach to his cooking, reflected in such rich and earthy dishes such as the Rump of Mourne Lamb and Confit Trout dish. Menus change completely on a seasonal basis, with the focus constantly shifting to spotlight what produce is currently just right to eat.

Although it’s only been open since February 2014, Brunel’s has already earned itself a reputation for superb food in a relaxed, informal setting. Behind the red door, you will find professional but friendly staff.  Paul’s food has earned him extensive critical acclaim and awards over the years, so there’s no better time to discover this “hidden gem” in the Mournes to find out what all the fuss is about!

Booking recommended, especially for weekends. Available for small- medium size private parties.
