Welcome to The Hillside Hillsborough's Oldest Pub

The Hillside is a charming, rustic pub situated in the historic Georgian village of Hillsborough, County Down, only 15 minutes drive from Belfast city centre. The Hillside first opened its doors to patrons in 1752 and has been enjoying a busy trade ever since thanks to our excellent food and drinks selection and our friendly, welcoming service. We are renowned for our roaring open fires in the winter and our pretty cobble stoned beer garden in the summer.

We had the most delightful lunch at the Hillside. The food was excellent the service was friendly and accommodating, and the surroundings are comfortable and interesting. Family-friendly too. Would have loved to have stayed longer and had a pint near the fireplace.
