About The Moody Boar

“Original unpretentious tasty and fresh – and obviously cooked by one who loves food”
Georgina Campbell

Our restaurant, The Moody Boar is located in the Palace Demesne Public Park in Armagh. It has been born out of a Love Food concept (eat, relax, enjoy). We grow our own herbs and vegetables in the restaurant garden and from foraging in the park.
We Love Food to be fresh, homemade and full of flavour, ensuring respect for the ingredients that we use and the dishes we produce; therefore everything made in the restaurant has been made from scratch.
This also crosses over into the restaurants relaxed, quirky and stylish interior.

Booked a table for a birthday meal on Saturday 13/01/2018, both because of good reviews and also the dedicated vegetarian & vegan menu on Moody Boar website, which appeared extensive, creative and interesting. A very important element as two of our party are vegan. We had a lovely evening and were blown away by the fantastic food, beautiful restaurant and warm ambience. Service was slow-moving which suited us perfectly as we wanted a leisurely, relaxed, family evening. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food, with the pièce de résistance being the exceptional vegan dishes. My starter was a flavourful platter of stuffed peppers, olives, mushrooms, bread and chutney. For main course I had roast winter veg, semolina & salsa verde with vegan chips and Garlic Rough Cuts. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. When booking I had mentioned that two of us are vegan and the Chef surprised us by created a couple of luxurious, off-menu desserts, a vegan Merengue and chocolate, praline, cherry mousse. This really was something special - we were so impressed! Thank you Moody Boar for such a fantastic evening, phenomenal vegan food and completely excelling all our expectations. We will be back, again and again..

Enjoyed a beautiful lunch at the Moody Boar on Saturday. The food was delicious and the service attentive but unobtrusive. It was very quiet but it was the middle of January. Will definitely visit again in the good weather

Armagh is very lucky to have a restaurant like the Moody Boar. Sean & Ramune Farnan are genuine welcoming hosts as well as preparing creative, fresh, flavoursome, home cooked food in atmospheric surroundings. I always enjoy dining there and often it's difficult to choose because everything on the menu looks so good. I have eaten here with friends and family but I am a tour guide who has recently started food tours in the area and the Moody Boar is a "must do" on these itineraries. Try the Moody Boar for yourself, I assure you, you will be treated to a fine dining experience and will not be disappointed. Finally their team of staff are second to none. Thank you Moody Boar we will be back - Donna Fox, Armagh

I brought a bus load of close friends to the Moody Boar to celebrate my husbands retirement. We were located in the private dining area which is very cosy and homely. Everyone was blown away by the atmosphere, food and staff. Thank you!
