Linen Hill is an exciting new project by co-proprietors John and Fiona Robinson and award winning chef Shaun Hanna.
The guys have a combined experience of more than 70 years in the hospitality industry and have received many awards and commendations for their work. They share a passion for local, seasonal ingredients, and champion the world class products available from the numerous artisan producers on their doorstep—best described using Shaun’s favourite phrase; “keeping it local”.
We bake in house each morning to ensure our customer’s have only the freshest scones and breads and produce our own range of exclusive deli items for you to take home.
We even grow some of our own herbs, salads and vegetables in our poly tunnel and kitchen garden 5 minutes away from Linen Hill at Loughbrickland—it doesn’t get fresher than that!
To sum up the team: John grows it, Shaun cooks it and Fiona bakes it.
Why “Linen Hill”?
The restaurant is located at The OUTLET, Banbridge, overlooking the Bann Valley, which for more than 200 years has been right at the heart of Irish Linen production. Home to such famous names as the Crawfords of Ballievey, Mulligans of the Corbet, Lindsays of Ballydown and Hayes’ of Millmount and Seapatrick and of course Ferguson’s who remain at the forefront of Irish linen production to this day.
