SSP to launch new premium restaurant bar concept in Belfast

Sip & Stone is set to open at the beginning of March 2018 in Belfast International Airport.

The new bar will feature a menu that has a focus on local dishes, recipes, and ingredients and will offer locally-sourced steaks, burgers, sausages and bacon. It will also serve international beers, on draft and in bottles, as well as international wine list. It will also offer a range of premium spirits.

The new concept will also see the introduction of an in-house bakery which will serve a variety of baked cakes and muffins, along with grab-and-go sandwiches, and freshly-ground barista coffee.

Drawing inspiration from Northern Ireland’s Giants Causeway, Sip & Stone highlights the history and heritage of the local area. The modern, contemporary and natural design of the new restaurant creates a sit-back-and-relax environment for passengers as they begin their journey at Belfast International Airport, and will be open all day from breakfast to the last flight.

Simon Smith, CEO of SSP UK and Ireland said, “SSP has innovated this space from a traditional food village, to a modern concept, with an environment that is in tune with the needs of the aspirational customer. In the development, we’ve worked closely with the airport to underscore Belfast’s culture and culinary traditions.”

Graham Keddie, managing director at Belfast International Airport, said, “Belfast International Airport is in an exciting phase of growth with over six million passengers expected to travel through the airport in 2018. It is essential to provide facilities that meet the growing needs of our leisure and business customers and we are pleased that SSP has invested in these new facilities. I’m sure passengers will enjoy sampling some iconic culinary delights that will be on offer at Sip & Stone.”
