Set in a rural and picturesque setting on Soldierstown Road at Aghalee, Clenaghans has given a real boost to the local council area offering locals, visitors and tourists a touch of class with their flavoursome dishes and high quality customer service, since re-opening in 2017.

The restaurant has just announced the appointment of Leigh Ferguson as Head Chef.

 Alderman Alan Ewart, of Lisburn and Castlereagh, welcoming the appointment, says: “I am delighted to welcome Head Chef Leigh to the team in Clenaghans and I have no doubt that the passion he has for good food and local produce will translate into a memorable dining experience for anyone who comes across the door.  The restaurant is going from strength to strength and I want to congratulate Stevie and Cristina on this new exciting chapter.”

 Joint owner Cristina Higginson explains: “Leigh was part of our team in Square Bistro, Lisburn, for over 10 years and it is because of his success there that we are certain he will bring the same level of passion for food to Clenaghans. 

“We are confident in Leigh’s ability to manage both the kitchen and to continue introducing impressive new dishes, made with local produce, into Clenaghan’s menu.  For everyone here at the restaurant it is important that we create incredible food using quality local ingredients which brings the community back to Clenaghans; for Leigh this is a priority.”
