The Square Bistro

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

The Square is the star of Lisburn city.

Top-class ingredients and top-class culinary techniques are the recipe that has seen The Square Bistro enjoy a decade of success in Lisburn. This bright and hugely busy room – you need to book early for weekend nights! – is the perfect setting for Stephen Higginson’s ambitious, beautifully focused cooking. That  cooking begins with carefully sourced artisan foods which are then shown judicious modern treatments: if you never imagined that you would discover hay-baked celeriac in Lisburn, then think again, because it’s here on the menu. Weekday nights feature special curry and tapas menus, but it’s with the à la carte that Mr Higginson really lets his imagination fly: McAtamney’s rib-eye steak with wild mushroom sauce; smoked haddock with fresh linguini and shellfish cream; ceviche of Portavogie scallops with fennel and radish. A great crew of professionals who know their job inside out make The Square a room that pulses with energy from breakfast to dinner. You’ll be planning the return visit before you’ve had dessert.
