“I have a collie and I love to take him out, I don’t like to leave him. It is really nice there. Their bacon butties are really amazing.

“It’s a lovely outdoor space with a walled garden with apple trees growing around. It feels like a real beautiful space within the city.”

Caolan Fleming said: “I’d say Daly’s Bar and Bistro. My dad worked there for as long as I can remember. That is where we always went, so I was pretty much raised there.

Since they took over and done it up a few years ago into a restaurant the food is lovely there, it kind of hits closer to home.”

Jay Murphy said: “The Pickled Duck, because it’s a great spot, great food, great staff and the atmosphere is good as well.

There is like a wee outback where you can sit outside, it’s almost like a beer garden but you can eat food as well. It’s lovely.”

Ryan Holmes is a second year journalism student in Derry. He said: “My favourite place to eat in Derry is probably Mekong. It is really authentic Vietnamese food.

They do a good in-house beer that they brew themselves and it goes really well with their food.”

Toby Doherty said: “Derry is a pretty hard place for me to eat because I am a vegan, and there aren’t a lot of options in Derry.

“But Guapo is my favourite place to eat. They do a really good vegan wrap. But the queue can be quite long and it is hard to get in sometimes.”

Nathan Edgar is a local filmmaker. He said: “My favourite place to eat and drop by would probably be the Pickled Duck which is located on the Guildhall Square.

“It’s just a great wee spot. You’ve outdoor, you’ve indoor and the food is just great.

“The atmosphere is really good and there’s always a buzz about that place.”
