Lovely setting of this restaurant in what looked liked converted stables. 1st comment would be the sign for the entrance door could have been more prominent. Took 3 different attempts to find correct door and believe me , we were not the only ones. However...More

Is there a dress code for this place? Seems very fancy! Don't want to turn up under or over dressed for evening meal!

At The Moody Boar we are a casual dining restaurant working for sustainability, value, local produce & most of all Flavour. Surrounded by the beautiful Armagh Palace Demesne Public Park & grounds we infuse the Smells, Sights & Flavours from the grounds by growing our own at the restaurant garden & foraging in the Park.This also crosses over into The Moody Boars Interior, out with the new & in with the 'up-cycled', the restaurant is relaxed, quirky & stylish in a moody way.We Love Food to be fresh, home-made & full of flavor so we use traditional techniques to ensure respect for the ingredients that we use and the dishes we produce. You'll notice the difference!!
