Review on Aldridge Lodge
This gem of a restaurant-cum-guesthouse is one of those places that fully justifies a detour: it is set right on the coast overlooking the fishing village of Duncannon with stunning views of the nearby beach and the Suir estuary. The Lodge is a modern, stone-fronted building and the restaurant has a bright and breezy feel, with patio doors opening out onto a decking area.
Billy Whitty and Joanne Harding have worked together for many years and have honed their skills very effectively. As a team, they make excellent use of home-grown, local and organic produce for food with a strong modern accent - although dishes are never over-worked.
To begin, they might offer Hook Head crab cake with baby leaves, crème fraîche and pepper salsa or home-smoked breast of guinea fowl with potato cake, asparagus and grain mustard. Moving on, there's a good choice of fish, meat and game, from a duo of plaice and turbot with confit of leeks, orange and lemon butter to charred tack of venison with champ, braised red cabbage and red onion marmalade. The modest wine list provides sound drinking across the range.
