Review on Ardtara Country House

Built around 1896 as the family home for Irish linen magnate Harry Jackson Clark, this stately Victorian country manor by the River Bann still houses many artefacts that the original owner accumulated during his travels around the world.

The wood-panelled restaurant occupies the old billiard room: it's graced by an impressive hunting frieze and crowned by a huge glass skylight. By contrast, the food moves with the times, and the kitchen offers lively contemporary ideas alongside the classics. Die-hards will be impressed by roast sirloin of McKee's beef with Yorkshire pudding, wild mushrooms and red wine gravy; others might prefer home-marinated Irish salmon, cod with a mille-feuille of baby spinach and Ricotta or corn-fed chicken with roasted baby potatoes and Cajun sauce.
