Downshire Arms Hotel
The Heslip family who own this venerable establishment say “there are no strangers here, only friends who haven’t met”. People and horses have been fed and watered at this former coaching inn for nearly two centuries.
The bar food menu is full of crowd-pleasers like the roast of the day and the burgers aren’t too shabby either. The calorie-counted healthier options are a new addition. We love the steamed sea bass and chicken, mango and chilli salad.
The restaurant is well-known for its wide range of traditional food with a twist. Expect dishes like Beef and Bird sandwich and cod and prawn thermidor . They do a slow roast of lamb which comes in its own crock pot for two.
Naturally, everything is cooked from scratch with as many local ingredients as possible. Top marks for offering salad on the kids menu. Make it your business to drop in next time you’re nearby. Then you’ll go back time and again.
The Downshire Is Renowned For Their Steaks, We Use The Highest Quality Northern Irish Charolais Beef, 36 Day Matured In A Salt Chamber For The Best Possible Taste & Tenderness.
