Hearty Irish and international bar cuisine
The kitchen brigade at Grace’s serve up no-nonsense Irish pub grub alongside a few global favourites. Menus can change, but starters include black pudding fritters based on an authentic Irish family recipe and served with pepper sauce.
Mains could feature Irish stew & potatoes mopped up with soda bread, Irish pork sausages with colcannon mash & onion gravy and Friday fish with chunky chips & tartar sauce.
From the snack section, dig into choices like the chicken fajitas, jalapeño poppers and tempura prawns. There is also a children’s section offering junior favourites such as burger & chips and cheesy pasta with garlic bread.
If you have room for a classic pudding, then treat yourself to an ice cream sundae, apple & rhubard crumble or steamed pudding & custard.
