The French Rooms
A shop which oozes continental chic combined with a bijou restaurant is our idea of a perfect combination. Hurray then for the French Rooms in the picturesque village of Bushmills on the north coast.
Naturally the décor is tres chic ; so conducive to a good eating experience. Think classics like French toast croissants, Croques any which way, Tarte Flambee (which is a traditional dish like an Alsatian pizza), Tasting Platters of hors d’oeuvres, a selection of bistro-style dishes like Steak Frites and Gratins plus lots of perfect patisserie.
Lots of local producers are namechecked on the menu like Kookycook Pesto, Glens of Antrim Ales, Ballyrashane Creamery, Northcoast Smokehouse and Love Olive.
The Juniors Menu has a mini Tarte Flambe option and the wine list is tres, tres bon. Trust us, the French Rooms are magnifique.
