In July 2016, Crumlin Road Gaol opened its new licensed restaurant Cuffs Bar & Grill. The new restaurant, which created 30 jobs, is a welcome addition to Belfast's blossoming restaurant scene and the North Belfast hospitality industry.
Opened in the NI Year of Food and Drink, which celebrates the quality and creativity in the industry, the new restaurant at Crumlin Road Gaol prides itself on keeping it local. All ingredients are fresh and sourced locally, having developed great relationships with small independent suppliers such as Ewings, Belfast's oldest fishmongers and Dromore meat suppliers, Carnbrooke Meats, making the best of the seasons to create a menu which includes something for all.
Cuffs is for everyone - locals and tourists alike. Managing Director of Crumlin Road Gaol, Kieran Quinn, "The building itself is a local landmark, and one of the most popular attractions for tourists visiting Belfast. We look forward to welcoming guests in for a taste of Cuffs Bar & Grill as we are sure the restaurant and the locally inspired and sourced menus will become well-known with the local area."
Cuffs Bar & Grill opens daily from 11am – 6pm Sunday to Thursday and 11am - 9pm Friday & Saturday and aims to boost Northern Ireland's food and drink reputation by putting it at the heart of the tourism experience.
