Review on Coq & Bull at Clandeboye Lodge Hotel

Tranquillity reigns at this modern country house hotel adjacent to Clandeboye Estate and the fairways of Blackwood Golf Centre. All around there are wooded grounds, lawns and gardens, yet Belfast city centre is only 15 minutes' drive away.

The ground floor of the hotel has undergone a £500,000 refurbishment with their new Brasserie Coq & Bull taking centre stage. The restaurant is named after the celebrated works of 18th Century playwright Richard Brinsley Sheridan, a former owner of the London Theatre Royal, Drury Lane who has family ties to the local area, the adjacent Helen's Tower is named after his grand-daughter.

Former chef and proprietor Nick Price of the legendary Nick's Warehouse is consulting on the menu and together with Head Chef Ian Lyttle, they have created an inventive menu specialising in a large variety of chicken and beef dishes, driven by premium locally sourced ingredients.

On offer there might be shredded duck terrine with a plum and ginger chutney and home baked crusty bread or salt and pepper squid with their own cabbage, dill and cucumber slaw. When it comes to main courses you could choose one of their locally reared legendary steaks with your choice of sauce served with roasted vine tomatoes and beef dripping chips, or fish fans might opt for the lightly smoked Glenarm salmon fillet with creamed fresh spinach and mash. Calorific desserts close the show with a chocolately marathon pudding with a molten peanut butter interior, paired with salted caramel ice cream or a deconstructed white chocolate and honeycomb cheesecake with a crumbled ginger biscuit base.
