Gardiners G2

Local man Sean Owens opened this impressive restaurant with his wife Helen in 1999 and, although it has since had a complete revamp, they recognised that some things are better left unchanged - and their stated aim, to bring quality local food and service to the people of the area, is one of them.


This is achieved well, through accessible menus that offer really good variations of many popular dishes: ever-popular prawn cocktail, for example, deep fried Ulster button mushrooms with garlic aoili and (who could resist?) a range of juicy local steak dishes...


Sean is a committed supporter of local produce and suppliers, and you may find some unusual specialities here too - Lough Neagh smoked eel, for example (a parfait, perhaps, on roasted soda bread), and dishes inspired by traditional rural products.


All menus are good value (including a Celebrations Menu, offered occasionally to give the kitchen a good stretch, which is also keenly priced), and an early dinner menu offering plenty of choice is a snip. But it’s not just good food that attracts people to Gardiners - it’s a good night out.


Gardiners is a great neighbourhood restaurant - and plenty come from other neighbourhoods to enjoy a night out here, especially at weekends. A carefully selected (and thoroughly tasted) wine list is also well priced.
