The Strawberry Tree at Brooklodge Hotel & Macreddin Village

Macreddin
aaicon Restaurant %

Brooklodge is at the heart of the purpose-built Macreddin Village, a luxurious country-house retreat comprising an 18-hole golf course and spa, a pub and brewery, café, bakery, smokehouse, and Italian restaurant. The dinner-only Strawberry Tree is the foodie epicentre of the whole set-up. It is a strikingly theatrical setting, spreading through three moodily Gothic rooms with mirrored ceilings reflecting twinkling modern chandeliers, bare burnished mahogany tables, and gilt-framed mirrors on midnight-blue walls. Given its status as Ireland's first certified organic restaurant, purity of ingredients is king, so what is not wild or foraged is sourced from certified organic producers, with herbs and soft fruit grown in the estate's own walled garden. The kitchen brings all of this peerless produce together with skill and creativity, opening with pan-fried squid paired simply with red pepper and courgette salad and smoked chilli aïoli. Next up, locally-shot wild venison is pan-fried and matched with butternut squash, date purée and girolle mushroom sauce, and it ends on a high with dark chocolate tart with white chocolate and honeycomb cream cheese.
