Quintessential British fare and the warmest hospitality you’ll find anywhere blend together to create Primrose. This humble brand was dreamt up by owners Ciaran and Melanie who specialise in serving quality, nourishing and delicious dishes in a rustic and impeccably designed space. Recently this local favourite relocated and found its new home on Strand Road in the centre of Derry. You’ll find extensive breakfast, lunch and dinner menus, alongside a delicatessen and patisserie, so whether it’s Melanie’s outstanding cakes or a fully fledged meal featuring Ciaran’s family butcher’s meat, you’ll be in for a treat each time. Derry’s Primrose does tend to fill up, so booking ahead is essential.
So, what’s on the menu at Primrose on Strand Road? If you’re in for breakfast or brunch, we recommend the homemade Primrose waffles topped with caramelised banana, butterscotch sauce and crispy bacon; eggs Benedict with your choice smoked ham or Donegal prime oak smoked salmon alongside a fresh cup of coffee or tea. If it’s lunch you’re visiting this British local favourite for, then keep an eye out for the tasty soup of the day, shiitake and mozzarella arancini balls smothered in an arrabiata sauce or go for the ever-delicious open beef sarnie.
For dinner, Derry’s Primrose on Strand also offers dishes such as Greencastle haddock cooked in a buttermilk batter served with mushy peas, tartar sauce and crunchy chips, roast chicken with braised artichoke, smoked pancetta and wild mushrooms or vegetarian risotto brimming with St Tola goats cheese, tea-soaked cranberries and truffle pesto. The passion just oozes here, and this Derry cafe, restaurant, bakery and delicatessen goes above and beyond to give local foodies some of the best British-style fare in town. So pay Primrose, Derry a visit – you won’t be disappointed.
