Farmers Inn reopens after £300k facelift

A new bar bistro has reopened in Belfast following a £300,000 investment and refurbishment.

The Crooked Mile in Colinglen Road, formerly known as the Farmers Inn, is headed up by husband and wife team Sean and Jackie Murray.

The 52-seat Belfast restaurant now employs 15 staff, eight of which are full time.

The couple said they are delighted to be open before Christmas and have been encouraged by the positive feedback.

"The pleasure of seeing this place open again and welcoming people from across all the communities in greater Belfast and beyond is uplifting," said Mr Murray.

With an emphasis on local produce head chef Brendan McCool has compiled a contemporary menu featuring quality seafood and meats.

Mr Murray already runs two city centre bar restaurants - the Fountain in Fountain Lane and the Deer's Head in North Street - and was general manager of the Harbour Plaza Grand in Hong Kong.
