We make everything in our Food Hall using our own Fresh Ingredients. The core of our business will always be our butchery. We have won the Best in Ulster Awards for our Granite Aged Dry-Cured bacon and Our French Bread Stuffing. The Dry Cured Bacon recipe has been in our family for generations and we feel is the best bacon you will ever eat. No shrinkage or white stuff in sight, bacon as it should be. Our French Bread Stuffing is made on site everyday. A very simple Recipe but so so tasty. The secret is we use real Butter. We have won All-Ireland Winning titles for our Sausages and Barbeque Products, We dry-age all our Beef the old fashioned way for 28-days.
