At the Lough Neagh Discovery Centre, there is a strong commitment to healthier eating. Ingredients are sourced from local suppliers, thereby ensuring freshness and supporting the local food industry.

When cooking food, healthy methods of braising, baking, boiling and grilling are used. However, when this is not possible, sunflower oil is used to lightly fry. Low fat spreads or butter is also available if required. Salt is not added in the cooking process but herbs and spices are used to enhance the flavour. When mayonnaise is used in salads, the healthier ‘light’ option is used.

With the flexibility of in-house chefs and catering staff Loughside Café has established a reputation for providing high quality and reasonably priced food. The café is determined not to compromise on quality and menus are customised to suit any group, individual or dietary requirement.

Catering for a wide variety of tastes, local produce and fresh ingredients are combined to ensure the dining experience is an unforgettable one. Hot food is served daily including weekday and Sunday lunch specials.
