Here in the village of Lisbane, close to the shores of Strangford Lough, we offer a unique dining and hospitality experience. 
The Grade II listed building dates back to the 1840's and having lain derelict for many years, it has been lovingly restored and it now makes a charming home for Trevor and Alison Smylie’s tea rooms and gift shop. 
Trevor has years of experience as a baker and pastry chef in Australia and the U.K. and is now responsible for producing all the mouth watering scones, gateaux, pies and tarts which can be enjoyed in the three atmospheric tea rooms, each with its own cosy peat fire. 
And, in fine weather, eating outside is always a treat, whether in the courtyard garden or by the lily pond where the gentle scent of the nearby herb garden wafts on the air. 
As well as breakfast, teas, coffees and light snacks, wholesome lunch dishes such as salmon and asparagus quiche or chicken and broccoli bake with salad are available (with a big slice of chocolate tart to follow, perhaps). 
Our Pantry offers a great range of take away options from home made scones and tray bakes to Quiche, Lasagne and a range of pies and salads.

"I have been to many afternoon teas across Northern Ireland and the food at the Chocolate Afternoon Tea was the best I've had. The service was also fantastic. Will be back soon!"

"Afternoon tea is superb, a little different, delicious and served with a smile. In fact all the food served in the coffee shop and bought from the Pantry is superb, especially the chicken and broccoli bake. The gift shop, though small, has everything. Thank you for the candle and birthday rendition for my sister's birthday."
