The Vanilla Pod (familiarly known as ‘The Pod’) is the restaurant of the Headfort Arms Hotel in Kells. The restaurant has very much its own identity and this is one of the marvels of its fifteen year success on the Boyne Valley dining scene.
The room is modern, boutique, shabby chic in parts and its food is creative, local and served by a team of people who have also carved their own identity on the regional restaurant landscape.
The Headfort is in the hands of the Duff family for almost half a century, now in second generation brother and sister team, Vincent and Olivia Duff. This year the hotel scooped the Gold Medal Award for Ireland’s Best Three Star Hotel for the second time.
Now an established Foodie Destination, the Vanilla Pod rests at the centre of the Boyne Valley Food Scene. A look at the menu reveals the kitchens commitment to food provenance, the rich band of exciting Boyne Valley Producers and the seasons of their produce.
