The Parson’s Nose
Want to dine in the village which is home to the Queen of England’s official residence in Northern Ireland? They treat you like royalty at the Parson’s Nose and the food is definitely five-star.
This is a gastro pub you will want to visit again and again and following a recent refurbishment and extension, it also houses a wood-fired oven, giving the menu a welcome selection of wood-fired foods including authentic sour dough pizzas.
The Belfast Black stout and treacle wheaten bread will whet your appetite for the likes of the Parson’s Gourmet Burger topped with Young Buck blue cheese, guanciale and red onion marmalade. Portion sizes are so generous you’ll be hard pushed to do three courses, but do try.
The décor is totally in keeping with the Georgian building but feels modern too. Top marks for supplying local brews. Check out the 5-10-5 menu for the best value, available Mon-Fri 12-6.30pm.
Opening hours: Mon-Sun, 12-9.30pm (closes Sun & Mon 8.30pm)
