Cunningham's Kitchen
Ranked #1 of 27 Restaurants in Kilkeel
Description: We are a High Class Multi Award Winning Butchers&Deli, in Business from 1919. We have opened our newly built Food Hall and bistro to complement our already established Brilliant High Class Butchers. We make everything in our Food Hall using our own Fresh Ingredients. The core of our business will always be our butchery. We have won the Best in Ulster Awards for our Granite Aged Dry-Cured bacon and Our French Bread Stuffing. The Dry Cured Bacon recipe has been in our family for generations and we feel is the best bacon you will ever eat. No shrinkage or white stuff in sight, bacon as it should be. Our French Bread Stuffing is made on site everyday. A very simple Recipe but so so tasty. The secret is we use real Butter. We have won All-Ireland Winning titles for our Sausages and Barbeque Products, We dry-age all our Beef the old fashioned way for 28-days. We now have a Himalayan Salt chamber which customers can now see in our food hall. The process of dry aging now happens in front of your eyes. Our Bistro seats over 50 people and we have a team of Brilliant Chefs who use all our butchery products on the menu. We feel you will not get a fresher meal or better breakfast anywhere in the country. We have a hot-food counter and deli making delicious products. We have over 200 different dishes which can be bought both hot and cold. We make our own Home-Made Gelato Ice-Cream on site with a vast array of toppings and a delicious Hot Chocolate fountain. We use Milk and Not cream making a lovely light healthier alternative to traditional ice-cream. There is vast display of artisan products on display and we sell fresh vegetables which are delivered fresh everyday from Belfast market. We have a 50 car parking spaces at the side making your trip as convenient as possible.

Called in yesterday for a late lunch after spending a few hours in the Mournes. We were greeted by a friendly warm dark haired girl and were shown to a table. The blond who served us couldn’t have been more different - stiff, cold, condescending and patronising(and she didn’t treat the other staff too well either!) I question whether hospitality is really her forte!
The seafood chowder I had was delicious but the toasted sandwich my husband had had an average garnish. They arrived 20 minutes after we had ordered them and later customers were served before us.
It’s a shame as this is what Kilkeel was crying out for but the young staff give a better impression than the older one.

We were in kilkeel for Easter and this place was fantastic! The food was superb in the restaurant and the grub we got from the butcher's was just as good. Super friendly staff too, cannot recommend this place enough.

Worth a visit if in kilkeel. We had a family dinner there. The food was delicious and very reasonable. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had the steak special. Steak was cooked to perfection and came straight from the adjoining butchers!!! My son had the chilli dog special which he couldn't finish but thoroughly enjoyed. The menu looked great especially the deserts. Kids had easter eggs to get through so we passed but I did get a takeaway Pavlova that was delicious.

Weekends aren’t weekends without a visit to the butchers! Cunningham’s Kitchen is a must when in Kilkeel. Excellent bistro food from steaks to fish, burgers and chicken. Try their scallops, delicious! Try their Tomahawk steak, delicious! Try their seafood chowder, delicious! Chef you excelled yourself this Easter weekend with your tail of monkfish Thai curry, off the scale completely! This wee restaurant has it all. The staff are excellent and nothing a bother to them. To top it all off, Cunningham’s Kitchen is Bring Your Own!! The fact that you can bring your own choice of wine, beer etc makes this a very reasonable night out. Customer car parking out back and what more could you want.
