We don’t know about you but dining out is most definitely one of our favourite past times. Whether we are starting the day right while eating out for breakfast, filling our tummies with a fresh salad or moist sandwich at lunchtime or getting dressed up and heading out for an evening meal, eating out just hits different then cooking at home. 

As we are so into our own dining experience our goal is to create a wonderful dining experience for all of our guests here at Tullyglass House Hotel and Residences. We have many dining experiences to choose from here at Tullyglass… but let’s talk about Austins.

History of Austins Bar & Restaurant

Austins Bar & Restaurant is Tullyglass’ bespoke restaurant located on our grounds. The name behind Austins Bar and Restaurant, like our hotel, has a very interesting history. From 1910 to the 1950s, Tullyglass House was owned by a well-known local whiskey distiller James B McAllister. A very successful businessman. Along with a high quality product, he developed a recognisable brand at a time when many distilleries were simply supplying local customers. To reinforce the brands he supplied mirrors and other items to public houses. One of the innovations that he brought to his business was the use of a fleet of branded Austin Seven box vans, built onto the chassis of these small saloon cars.

Let’s Talk Dining

But it is not all about the history, the food must be yummy as well! At Austins we offer a lunch and dinner menu with food bursting with taste that is sure to have you coming back for more! Our menus include appetisers, sharing platters and delicious mains. We also have some ‘From the Grill’ options like our Dexter Burger or a 10oz Sirloin Steak… is your mouth watering yet? 

Austins is open from 10am Monday through until Sunday. Come along with your friends, family or a romantic date! We have a children’s menu for the little ones as well… just so you don’t have to share.

Finishing Touches

Is your meal really complete without something on the side? The answer is obviously not! Along with the delicious array of main meals on our Austins’ lunch and dinner menu we have tasty side dishes for everyone. We have a selection of salads for the side of your main dish for something light to enjoy in the summer months. If you come along and we are having more of a ‘Northern Ireland summer’, we have the warmer side dishes that might suit better. From creamy mash, garlic wedges, double cooked chips and stir fried udon noodles it will be hard to choose just one! All of our vegetables and potatoes are sourced from the Glens of Antrim – only the best for you.
