Simplicity at its best: quality ingredients cooked with flair, served with pride and fairly priced. A good place to be.

Lily Johnstons Bar & Kitchen

Right in the heart of Glenavy village, Paul Masterson's friendly pub/restaurant (formerly McGeown’s) has recently had a contemporary makeover but its origins go back to the 17th century and an open fire provides a timeless welcome.


Open for lunch and dinner, it’s a really useful place for the hungry foodie to know about. Salt and pepper mills on the table are a promising sign of good things to come – and with reason, as the food here is delicious and has finesse.


Bistro style menus offer something for everyone, but even something as simple as a flavoursome lunchtime bowl of soup (leek and potato, perhaps, with good texture as well as flavour) is made and presented with care, together with home baked wheaten bread and freshly cut triangles of butter.


Simplicity at its best: quality ingredients cooked with flair, served with pride and fairly priced. A good place to be.

Open Mon-Sat 11.30am-1am, Sun 12.30-midnight. Food served: Mon-Sat 11.30-9.30 (8.30 in winter), Sun 12.30-8.30.Live music Sat nights. MasterCard, Visa. abbreviations
