  • ‘Tis the Season
    Due to the Covid pandemic, we closed The French Rooms restaurant, Bushmills, just before Christmas.

  • Loaded fries – the air fryed low fat alternative
    Loaded fries are everywhere right now, and I love them. Lockdown has brought out the best in local take-outs and restaurants, many of who have pivoted to offer something different.

Sadly they are also loaded with calories and fat, fine if an occasional treat but worth exploring a healthier alternative.With that in… Continue reading →
