Gastro-pub group Balloo Inns has opened a new restaurant called Overwood in Killinchy, Co. Down.
Located on top of Balloo House, the first-floor restaurant's kitchen is run by executive head chef Danni Barry.
Balloo Inns managing director and owner Ronan Sweeney stated, "We are so thrilled to open the doors to Overwood. Provenance and local produce have always been at the heart of everything we do at Balloo and we aim to take this a step forward with the exciting new offering. For the Overwood menu, chef Danni Barry is keeping it simple, using the best cuts and seafood available to us and adding a special aroma and flavour with the searing heat of the charcoal and wood fire from the new Kopa grill.

"Danni is extremely talented at creating flavour, and this shows in the selection of sauces and interesting sides offered to accompany the dishes that are grilled over wood. This is traditional, real cooking, and we could not do this without the tremendous support of the entire team at Balloo House. I am extremely grateful for all their dedication, passion and hard work."
