Cuff’s Bar and Grill
Cuff’s is a great name for a restaurant in a former jail, don’t you think? Headed up by Damien Blaney, the kitchen crew are dab hands at what they call “gaol grub” like Smokehouse Beef Brisket, the Long Stretch Burger and Sustainable Seafood Pie.
It opened in July 2016 with a mission to “keep it local”. Damien has good relationships with small independent suppliers such as Carnbrooke Meats and Ewing’s, Belfast’s oldest fishmongers.
You don’t need to go on a tour of the tourist attraction that is Crumlin Road Gaol to eat there, but you should visit the gaol if you have never been. You get 10 per cent off in the restaurant, too.
Opening Hours Mon-Wed 12pm-6pm Thur-Sun 12pm-9pm
