Good food has always played a leading role in the Beech Hill Derry - Londonderry hospitality story.

While many of our diners to the Ardmore restaurant Derry are local people many more have travelled from distant lands where the cuisine is greatly different to ours. But wherever they come from our aim is to present them with the very best Northern Ireland country house cooking.

When looking for a place to dine in Londonderry you need to look no further. We use only the finest and freshest of ingredients, mostly from nearby farms in Derry and fishermen. Vegetables and herbs are grown in the hotel’s own garden and gathered daily.

Here we aim to show you some of the dishes that have been prepared by Beech Hill chefs. All have been featured in Derry’s Sunday Journal newspaper for which our chefs write a weekly food page offering culinary suggestions and advice for readers.

We will refresh this section regularly and hope that you may come across one or two useful new ideas for your own home cooking.

Ardmore Restaurant

Beech Hill’s Ardmore Restaurant Derry has been voted ‘Best Hotel Restaurant in County Londonderry.’ At home and abroad it has long been renowned for its imaginative and superbly presented dishes, all fashioned from local produce.  

Many an international celebrity has dined here while enjoying relaxing views across ornamental lakes and gardens. Local people come here regularly for lunch, afternoon tea or dinner, often taking a stroll through Beech Hill Londonderry's picturesque grounds before they leave.

Big multinational corporations choose Beech Hill Derry for their special, private functions. So do many smaller local organisations from Londonderry.

The Ardmore Restaurant Derryhas won many honours and accolades. It features in Georgina Campbell’s Good Food Guide, John and Sally McKenna’s Best in Ireland Bridgestone Guide and is a member of North West Organics.

Our chefs are always happy to cater for special dietary needs providing they receive advance notice.
