The King’s Head has been awarded the Bord Bia Just Ask Restaurant of the Month accolade for August. To celebrate, the King's Head is giving a €100 voucher to dine at the restaurant to one lucky Galway Advertiser reader.
Owned and managed by the Grealish family for more than 25 years, The King’s Head is a destination food pub that shares a food philosophy with its sister restaurant The Chop House – a firm commitment to a menu, underpinned by conscientiously sourced Irish and artisan ingredients.
Bord Bia’s Just Ask campaign encourages diners to look for information on where the food on their plate comes from when eating out. The Restaurant of the Month award is given to restaurants and cafés that demonstrate best practice in providing customers with this information.
“Our menu is short and to the point, with an ongoing commitment to sourcing the best local produce," said head chef Brendan Keane. "We source our chicken from the Friendly Farmer in Athenry, our corned beef and sausages from Colleran’s Butchers across the street, and smoked Connemara lamb from McGeough’s of Oughterard. Burren Smokehouse provide our smoked salmon; our beef is always Irish and our fish and vegetables are sourced as locally as we can find them.”
Now in its sixth year, the Bord Bia Just Ask campaign has been wholeheartedly embraced by the restaurant trade. Winners are elected by renowned food writer Georgina Campbell and Bord Bia.
“Chef Brendan Keane and sous chef Brian McCormack thrive on sourcing locally and tend to let the food do the talking,” commented Georgina Campbell. “Brendan and Brian have forged relationships with some great local suppliers and change menus as new fresh ingredients become available.”
