The Hillside

The Hillside is a charming, rustic pub situated in the historic Georgian village of Hillsborough, County Down, only 15 minutes drive from Belfast city centre. The Hillside first opened its doors to patrons in 1752 and has been enjoying a busy trade ever since thanks to an excellent food and drinks selection and friendly, welcoming service. It is renowned for roaring open fires in the winter and a pretty cobblestoned beer garden in the summer.

Gastronomes will delight in their mouth-watering seasonal menu, which is complemented by a comprehensive selection of daily specials. Their Head Chef always endeavours to make the most of the wonderful local produce so abundantly available in County Down. The restaurant is family friendly, offering a fantastic children’s menu to suit all tastes.

Needless to say a good pub would be nothing without an excellent drinks selection to enjoy with the wonderful food. They are one of a very few local bars to offer real pump ales as well as craft ciders, lagers and stouts. They also have an extensive wine list and a wide range of spirits including some fine Irish whiskeys.
