Beef & Bird based at Lisburn Leisureplex and owned by Bronagh and Anton Campbell, was awarded the prestigious title at the recent 2017 Ni4kids awards last week. The win recognises the restaurant for its ethos of putting families first when it comes to great food, value and facilities, as well as a warm welcome to customers of all ages.
The space themed gala awards ceremony, held this year at Belfast City Hall, celebrates and rewards individuals and businesses that go above and beyond the call of duty in their dedication to working with families and children.
The competition saw a record number of nominations by members of the public from across the province that chose their 'Family Star' in each category before the finalists were selected by a panel of judges.
Bronagh Campbell, owner, says:
"Beef & Bird strive to produce great quality food at affordable prices, with no compromise on customer experience or service. Our team work to create the perfect dining experience for families from across Northern Ireland. We are delighted to be crowned 'Family Restaurant of the Year' and would like to thank our loyal customers for their votes."
With the first award firmly in place, Beef & Bird has high hopes for the future as it follows in the footsteps of its sister restaurant 'Del Toro', who has won many coveted awards including; Model of Excellence Award 2011, Taste of Ulster - Restaurant of the Year 2011 & 2013, Best Licensed Eating Establishment 2013 and is also owed by Bronagh and Anton.
Since opening its doors a year ago, the Beef & Bird brand is emerging with distinct character in its stylish decor, spacious dining, extensive menu, kids corner, themed parties and alternative sell out events.
Bronagh, added: "Our creative team, who work behind the scenes, give a unique and fresh injection of ideas that are setting new trends within the industry. This is just the beginning for Beef & Bird and we are ecstatic at the prospect of future opportunities."
"Modern families are not just made up of 2.4, they can be single parents, grandparents, carers, guardians and everything-in-between. By offering a space where kids are allowed to be kids and be entertained, while the adults relax and engage, Beef & Bird is becoming more than a restaurant. It's a place where people make new lasting friendships and share their experiences".
To celebrate its recent success, Beef & Bird will be hosting its hugely popular Baby Disco on Thursday 4th August and launching a new concept for the over 60s called Silver Social on Tuesday 2nd August. Both daytime events showcase bespoke menus with special offers, live music and an opportunity to get out and meet new people.
