Grace Neills Donaghadee

33 High Street, Donaghadee, County Down, BT21 0AH
Established in 1611, and originally called the Kings Arms, Grace Neill's is listed in The Guinness Book of Records as Ireland's oldest pub. It's now named after a past landlady – who is said to haunt the building.

Expect a relaxed buzzy atmosphere, and simply, but carefully-cooked, food that unusually tastes and appears even better than it reads.

Starters such as 'Lightly Curried Monkfish with Celeriac Chips & Tomato Salsa'; 'Classic Portavogie Prawn Cocktail with Tomato & Red Onion Relish'; 'Crispy Duck Confit with Salad & Orange Sauce' and 'Homemade Paté with Port, Redcurrant & Shallot Chutney & Home-Baked Bread' set the style.

Perhaps 'Fish & Chips with Mushy Peas'; 'Homemade Beef Burgers' (in various forms); 'Beef & Guinness Pie'; 'Lamb Cutlets with Mash & Red Wine & Rosemary Reduction'; plus various Salads & Steaks from locally-produced beef – listed among the mains.

If you still have room – or perhaps just fancy a pub, you might be tempted by 'Dark Chocolate, Orange & Guinness Brownie with Chocolate Sauce & Vanilla Ice Cream'; 'Crème Brulée with Vanilla Shortbread' or 'Warm Apple & Blackberry Crumble with Blueberry Ice Cream'.
