The Restaurant at The Red Door Country House

Fahan, Inishowen
aaicon Restaurant %

If it's a deal breaker, rest assured the front door is indeed red. With views over Lough Swilly, this country house is popular for weddings and business meetings, but also has a restaurant run by a hands-on team who bake their own bread and do a good deal of the meat butchery themselves. The series of dining rooms - including a sun room - have traditional finishes, with polished teak tables and smart linen napery. The menu shows a passion for the produce of this part of the world, along with sound classical training and some bright modern thinking. Seared scallops with Haven Smokehouse salmon comes with pickled cucumber, cumin-scented beetroot and courgette jelly in a smart first course, followed perhaps by rack of Donegal lamb with ratatouille and boulangère potatoes, or roast wild Irish hake served on the bone. To finish, strawberry and white chocolate mousse, or tarte Tatin with apple parfait and crème anglaise.
