Primrose on the Quay

Butcher Ciaran and baker Melanie are the husband-and-wife team behind Primrose. Their two Derry bistros – on Carlisle Road in the city centre and facing the riverfront on Atlantic Quay – have a fresh, modern vibe with a focus on quality local ingredients and incredible home baking.

Everything – from their trademark strawberry and white chocolate scones to traditional sofa farls and incredible French patisserie – has been made in their scratch bakery. That means it’s been baked from scratch, every morning, with no exceptions. All the meat comes from Ciaran’s butcher’s shops, Breslin’s Family Butchers, and their original recipe pork and leek sausages and artisan black pudding are the cornerstone of the famous Primrose breakfast.

Highlights include afternoon tea, their Sunday brunch (try the duck with waffles), the ultimate burger and, for a real treat, the cocktails and cake menu. The private garden in Carlisle Road is perfect for parties, while on sunny days the tables overlooking the River Foyle outside Primrose on the Quay are the place to sit and watch the world go by. Don’t miss it!
