Our 125 seater restaurant and gift shop is cosy and full of character with vaulted ceilings, old beams, huge fireplaces and Belfast brick. If you gaze out the window you will see beautiful views towards Stormont and the Craigantlet Hills, we have a winning combination.

Using locally sourced products to give you that unforgettable local taste, all freshly prepared by our chefs! For a special treat why not try our sumptuous afternoon teas served on silver cake stands. Perfect to share with a friend on a day out.

We also cater for coeliac dietary requirements and those seeking gluten free options. If its breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or our late night menu we are the place to be. You will experience our warm, friendly and dedicated team of staff, our Antica coffee beans, wood roasted in Trieste and award winning Thompson tea in a homely and comfortable environment creating a buzzing atmosphere to top it off.

Groups are welcome here for events such as wedding receptions, church dinners, afternoon tea parties, morning coffee, scone groups, house group special evenings, baby shower afternoon teas, mens breakfasts, sporting groups, walking groups or youth groups and we have a beautiful brand new function suite ready to hold that special event!

Outside are beautiful gardens and a two acre nursery full of plants, tubs and hanging baskets grown by ourselves so do not hesitate to ask for free plant advice from our knowledgeable horticulturists!

In the gift centre we have a mens and ladies boutique, childrens shop, jewellery, handbags and a large gift centre brimming with beautiful gifts for all of your loved ones.
