“The Members’ Dining Room” Parliament Buildings
As you drive up the tree lined avenue towards Parliament Buildings, it’s unlikely that your first thoughts would turn to food.
And yet, housed within this historic building is the elegant Members’ Dining Room, serving up some of the best local produce Northern Ireland has to offer.
The demand for dining in this iconic setting, which overlooks one of Belfast’s most beautiful parks, the Stormont Estate, has been so popular that it is now open to the public every Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays).
The eclectic menu showcases a wide range of delectable seasonal fare and whether your taste is traditional or a little more on the adventurous side, you are sure to find something that will delight your palate.
Mouth-watering starters, such as the warm lime and chilli prawn bruschetta or the venison and smoked bacon terrine provide a perfect start to the perfect meal, and you won’t be disappointed by our stylish mains which include the popular Yardsman braised beef cheeks and our delicious beetroot and Applewood risotto. A full range of side dishes are also available to compliment your main meal, as well as a selection of speciality ales, beers and spirits from local artisan suppliers.
If you still have room for dessert, we have a range of sweet treats to tempt you with, including our green apple, cranberry and honeyed granola meringues and our traditional blackberry and apple crumble with warm egg custard.
You can round of your afternoon by taking a free tour of Parliament Buildings (please visit our website for latest tour times) or by visiting the gift shop which sells a range of postcards, books and souvenirs alongside individually designed jewellery items and hand crafted goods all made by local independent crafters.
And of course, what better way to work off that big lunch than to take a walk through the parks and trails of the magnificent Stormont Estate.
