The Strawberry Tree Restaurant

There is nothing on the menu here which is not organic or wild, and that's stated clearly. Inspections from the Organic Trust certifying body are tough and at random, so not even a hint of non-organic ingredients are allowed in the kitchens.

When you enter the world of BrookLodge & Macreddin Village, you walk into paradise. Yes this place is in its own private little world. Here at Good Food Ireland, we call it heaven. Macreddin Village is in the heart of the Wicklow Valley. You drive in the gate and there it is, a gorgeous village tucked in among the trees, quite out of the way from the hustle and bustle of city life, yet only a short drive from the busy motorway that takes you to Dublin.

BrookLodge lies at the centre of this village – a traditional lodge style building facing an old fashioned idyllic village green, complete with church. The lodge’s own rooster Elvis has his harem of hens following him over the perfectly mowed grass – what a sight to welcome you. The Orchard Cafe at Brooklodge is located in a lovely glazed all weather courtyard. Whatever the time of year, you can sit here in this space bathed in natural light, to enjoy a casual dining menu which has good ingredients at its core.  

Owner of Brooklodge is Evan Doyle, and avid campaigner for local and organic produce.
