Summer Dining at The Bushmills Inn

It’s our favourite time of year at The Bushmills Inn. There’s no better way to enjoy a long sunny summer’s evening than sipping a cocktail on our patio after a fabulous meal.  

The Bushmills Inn is home to an award-winning restaurant and bar that offers exquisite cuisine with an extensive wine list to appeal to all tastes. The restaurant is steeped in rich history and heritage, and there are still elements of the building that were once part of the original setting built in the 17th century.

We have added new seasonal dishes to our menus and are proud to say, as always, we’re supporting local producers. The ethos of our restaurant is ‘Taste of Ulster’, preferring Northern Irish suppliers and those who are right on our doorstep such as Broighter Gold, Ballyrashane Creamery, McAtamneys Butchers, Broughgammon Farm, Ursa Minor Bakery and Glenballyeamon Eggs to name but a few. We are so local that our rhubarb even arrives by tractor!

IMG_3516.jpgOn our A La Carte menu each evening you’ll find a special page dedicated to the ‘Innkeepers Choice’. Typically we feature a starters and main courses on this page which are designed around whatever is freshly caught that day. We have a close relationship with a fishmongers in Ballycastle who will phone us to let us know a boat has just docked with mackerel, crab or lobster and using this our Chefs will create a ‘special’ for that evening.

We take pride in our commitment to providing produce of the highest standard and while our menu evolves and adapts, one key constant is this commitment to our local suppliers to ensure fresh culinary creations. 

As if all this wasn’t enough to tempt you, we also have live Music on Saturday nights. The Gas Bar offers the ideal ambience and atmosphere to relax and enjoy the talent of some traditional musicians. Our Irish music sessions throughout the year are renowned thanks to resident band ‘Scad the Beggars’ who play every Saturday, 8.30pm to late.
