Coq & Bull Brasserie, Clandeboye Lodge
There is much more than chicken and beef on the menu here- although that is from traditional farm-reared Irish breeds and delicious! Head Chef, Ian Lyttle and his team have been busy creating food based on the best of what is available locally and in season. They call it good, honest food and they are justifiably proud of it.
The vegetables are grown on the Ards Peninsula. The dairy produce is from grass-fed herds. The fish is freshly caught in the Irish Sea. It’s all about working in partnership with suppliers and using their expertise to create dishes that surprise and delight. Those local suppliers include Carnbrooke, Keenan Seafoods, Draynes Farm and French Village.
For breakfast, tuck into the traditional fried Irish or a grilled version. Lunch is relaxed with kitchen favourites to classic grills and deli specials. Dinner follows in the same vein. The ingredients take centre stage and there is no formality, just great local food and drink- a true Taste of Ulster! Don’t forget to try the epic Sunday lunch. You can even get Coq & Bull food delivered to your room. They’ve got it all covered!
