Lisburn, the second biggest council area in Northern Ireland, has an affluent citizenship and as prosperous a city centre as any could have in the current circumstances. Yet it has never become a culinary destination like Derry/Londonderry, Enniskillen or Newry.

All three have at least two or three excellent restaurants. Lisburn has Square Bistro. There are some good cafes and bar restaurants including the attractive Speckled Hen whose chicken Swiss burger according to close advisers is a must, but if you're looking for some next level quality Irish food, that's it.

Luckily, the pandemic has not put the lights out in Square Bistro's kitchen and the take-home dinner kits are proving to be a big hit among those foodies who like to get involved in this kind of thing. Not a naturally gifted cook, I initially tended to steer away from the DIY dinner kits going instead for the fully prepared, boil in a bag or stick in the oven meals which many restaurants are offering.
