Warm & welcoming, Knockinaam Lodge shows attention to detail in everything from its cosy, dark red interior – think hunting lodge chic – to its comforting French-style menu. Roast Aberdeen Angus with puy lentils & fondant potatoes may follow on from sea bass on sauce vierge. For afters, indulge in the gooey chocolate pud & vanilla custard, while marvelling at the view: marquee weddings against the backdrop of the Irish Sea are a summer highlight. Also, what was good enough for Churchill & Eisenhower is good enough for us. Set lunch & dinner menus are reasonable, and wines start at £18.
