Restaurant Review in LQ | by Joris Minne

Recently, the LQ BID invited Joris Minne to take a ‘four-stop food tour’ in the Linen Quarter to showcase what was on offer across the district.

Restaurants (and bars) reviewed included:

  • The Perch
  • Sweet Afton
  • Grand Central Seahorse Restaurant
  • Ginger Bistro


Joris commented:

“Linen Quarter is emerging as a discerning hospitality destination. There are 40 quality restaurants and bars, backstreet bistros, hotels and cafes. All you have to do to find them is take your eyes off the footpath as you hurry for your bus or train and look around.”
