The Great Room Restaurant is undoubtedly one of Northern Ireland’s most extraordinary restaurants. Thanks to the remarkable original Victorian interior with its glass cupola, Ireland’s largest chandelier an array of plaster work detailing, the space is second to none. Needless to say our chefs search tirelessly to bring the finest seasonal ingredients together in eloquent dishes in thoughtfully prepared menus, just one of the reasons The Great Room Restaurant was awarded 2 AA Rosettes. All this is complemented by expert service and a wine list to which all the superlatives apply!
From tasting menus to light business lunching (and everything in between) The Great Room offers a comprehensive selection of menus to suit all tastes and budgets.
Our chefs take great pride in working with extraordinary local producers sourcing sustainable, where possible organic, but always of the highest quality products.
The Great Room Restaurant undoubtedly has one of the finest wine lists in the country. Our wine cellar is filled with fine vintages of classic wines and the best new comers too. It changes regularly to reflect the flavours of the season.
Seasonality: We are passionate about ensuring all our menus reflect the very best of the season. Fresh, flavoursome and imaginative interpretations of classic dishes await you in The Great Room Restaurant.
