Major revamp for Hillsborough eatery The Parson's Nose

By John Mulgrew

The Parson's Nose in Hillsborough has relaunched after a major £500,000 refurbishment.

The Co Down restaurant is owned by managing director Ronan Sweeney, with top chef Danny Millar behind the stove.

And it has now relaunched, with a wood-fired oven taking centre stage, and cooking most of the food on offer. That includes sour dough pizzas, fresh langoustines and beef from Moira's Peter Hannan.

The revamp sees a new interior and bright extension being added to the restaurant, including outside dining overlooking the lake around Hillsborough Castle.

The work was carried out by interior architect, Paul Haffey.

Ronan Sweeney, managing director of owner Balloo Inns and owner of the Parson's Nose, said: "We are thrilled to open the doors to the redeveloped Parson's Nose, and share our new chapter with customers.

"The restaurant still has its relaxed, cosy, Georgian pub atmosphere, but we have built on this, and also added a lighter, more open feel towards the back of the premises, accentuating the beautiful Hillsborough surroundings.

"The feedback from customers so far has been excellent, with the new menu proving popular across the generations."
