They opened their doors in September 2013 and gave Executive Chef Alan Hope the task of creating menus that would suit everyone’s palate and budget while maintaining the very finest quality. He really delivered on that.
They insisted he use the finest ingredients Northern Ireland has to offer and the menus really reflect that. From the finest steaks to delectable afternoon teas and of course, the weekend fry up! They have Provenance menus that allow customers to know exactly where the food on their plates has come from. Local suppliers are listed such as Ewing’s seafood, Carnbrooke meats, Thornhill Farm, Broighter Gold rapeseed oil, Abernethy butter, Yellow Door breads to name but a few!
A few of our best selling dishes so far are the Prime Fillet Steak Sandwich served with crispy onions, fried duck egg, pickle, tomato and rocket, fries and homemade dips! Phew!! That’s really popular at lunchtime.
In the evening they have a full grill selection; Ribeye on the bone, Fillet, Sirloin and a mixed grill as well as their scrummy Pale Smoked Haddock and daily fish specials.
Live entertainment is big here. We especially love Sundays at Tate’s. It’s relaxing, welcoming, family-friendly and the chilled out acoustic set in the background means for very happy people.
