Homegrown Produce

At McKee’s we raise Our Own Beef ,Chicken and Collect Our Own Eggs each day from Our Free Range Hens. Why do we do it? Simple – you just can’t beat home-grown, and the flavour and texture makes all the hard work worthwhile. Our customers care about the origin of their food, and we know that home-grown is best. We have a number of trusted local growers who supply our veg and seasonal fruit. This is County Down food at its best.


         Morning, lunchtime and late afternoon we have something for every taste. Our huge cinnamon scones are legendary and you can see them being carried from the oven every day.  Looking for a modern healthy twist on the Ulster Fry?  We’ve got it covered. Soup, sandwiches, or something more filling, or maybe your sweet tooth needs daily attention. 

Group Bookings – Not Available at Present

You can have us all to yourself! The restaurant is available in the evenings for group bookings where we’ll serve you and your guests. We have a variety of menus for you to pre-book from – enjoy the ambience of the wood stove and the views across to Scrabo Tower while you catch up with old friends for the evening. We’re always in demand so please enquire early for available dates.

Our Chefs

We are proud to say that we believe we have some of the best chefs in Northern Ireland on our team, and we allow them space to be creative, coming up with new dishes to delight our customers. Trained chefs turn quality home-grown produce into something special.

McKees Favourites

Week after week, there are some gems from our menu that our customers can’t get enough of. Next time you call in, ask for our Chicken Maryland, our Bread and Butter Pudding, or our amazing Pavlova and Strawboffee. Our delicious sausage & mash, our traditional dinners and our home-made mince, steak or chicken pie are big favourites with our customers.

Our Specialities

Whilst all of our food is excellent, there are some which are supreme. Even though McKee’s is a family farm, Our Fish Cakes won a 2013 Great Taste UK Gold Award – made from fresh Portavogie Seafood. And if you don’t mind us bragging for a moment, Our Rib-Eye Steak, from Our Own Home-Reared Cattle, is exceptional.
