The Percy French is the more informal dining option at the Slieve Donard Resort and Spa.
Set in the same stunning grounds as the resort, it is popular with locals and tourists alike. The eatery has undergone some refurbishment work and now boasts has a fantastic open-plan kitchen where you can see the chefs at work.
The roaring open fire is perfect for a cosy pint after a bracing walk on the beach or in the mountains.
As with all restaurants in the Hastings Hotels group, great local ingredients are key. The menus change frequently but the starters include a variety of soups, delicious chicken liver pâté served with Soda Bread, Irish Mussels and crowd-pleasers like homemade Fish Cakes and Ballybrie wedges.
There’s plenty of choices for main courses too . They do fantastic steaks, burgers and curries and they’re all a cut above. The fries will be handcut and the meat will be top-quality local stuff. Favourites include the Irish gammon steak, scampi and superb fish and chips!
Check out the vegetarian options too and there’s loads to choose from. For those looking something sweet, their homemade flourless chocolate brownies is not to be missed, or go the whole hog and try the sticky toffee pudding with Glastry Farm Vanilla Bean ice-cream.
Open daily 12.00 – 9.30pm
