Home started life as a pop-up restaurant in an off-the-beaten track location in Belfast City Centre in 2011. Initially for three months, the pop-up venture was an instant hit with foodies so much so that the restaurant extended its tenure for almost a year, before taking up a permanent home in its current location of Belfast’s Wellington Place close to the magnificent City Hall.
The food at Home is vibrant and bold yet familiar and comforting; made fresh every day, free from preservatives and colourings, Home always triesto source foods locally from Northern Ireland or as close to home as possible.
Home is proud to be working with so many small, local, artisan food producers who are behind much of what the chefs do in the Home kitchen. Meats are sourced from farms such as Hannan Meats and fruit and vegetables from local farmer Drew Frazer. Home promotes local and seasonal ingredients and everything is delivered to the restaurant fresh daily. Their larder, an epicure’s delight, is vast and the menu ever changing.
Ben Arnold is the head chef at Home. He has been at the helm from day one. Throughout his career he has picked up numerous accolades including the prestigious Robbie Millar Scholarship, Young Irish Chef of the Year and represented Great Britain on the junior team at the World Culinary Olympics.
