If you’re keen to mix up your usual routine, His & Hers has been impressed by Metquarter’s mix of new culinary, cinematic, fashion and beauty inspiration.

Ferguson’s Bakery

Something new turned out to be something quite special. I knew about Ferguson’s Bakery sourdough bread, which is first rate (as is the focaccia). The rest of the menu was a revelation.

The menu is well thought through and diverse and the delicious bread is often the base from which some of the most memorable dishes are created. There is Shakshouka (rich tomato and pepper stew) with vegan, vegetarian and meat options. The soup on offer on the day I visited was roast butternut squash, carrot and lentil, which featured slow roasted vegetables blended into a rich creamy soup. There are focaccia sandwiches: from roast chicken to black-bean hummus, with a tempting whipped feta and beetroot sandwiches in the mix. I chose cream and Stilton roast mushrooms, which was served on sourdough focaccia. The Stilton worked beautifully with the strong mushroom flavour and the burnt lemon dressing was inspired.. Roast chicken and mushroom came with sourdough and a rich creamy herb sauce. Perfectly matched.

Then there are pastries and cakes. The notion of a sour cherry chocolate brownie intrigued me enough to want to try this for myself next time I bake brownies. The pasteis de nata (home-made puff pastry filled with burnt egg custard and spiced with fennel, orange and cardamom is labour intensive, but oh so worth the effort, which is very easy for me to say.

That is what is so impressive about this menu. It is food painstakingly produced to exacting standards with lovely additions. Honey roast pear and Stilton salad is a vision before you cast your eye over the dish itself.

The Bakery’s hours are limited initially. Their plan is to extend those hours, hopefully quite soon. Check out their Facebook page.

The GPO Food Hall is both family friendly and a perfect place for folks to meet up and choose from a diverse selection of vendors and cuisines before they head off to the Everyman cinema or other entertainment in the city.

GPO Food Hall

The ‘Kids Eat Free’ offer for the summer holidays is available at the GPO Food Hall (terms and conditions apply). Between 11am-7pm from Monday-Friday during the school holidays, children aged 12 and under eat free with every main meal purchased by an accompanying adult.

Everyman Cinema at Metquarter

Catching the latest blockbusters at the cinema is always a sure-fire way to keep the whole family entertained. You can rely on the Everyman Cinema to take it to the next level.

With a full food and drinks menu, there is a whole lot more to offer than just popcorn and nachos – think burgers, hotdogs, sharing plates and cocktails – all delivered to your cinema seat.

Summer fun starts right here.
