A cracking little place. A good selection accross the menu. Good service, quality food at reasonable prices. Might be awkward to book for more than 15 people as space is limited but I recommend this place, 4 out 5.

I had a lovely evening with a friend here. We had booked to have food. I had sea bass and fish cake with green beans and my friend had the fish and chips. Both dishes were delicious! The chips are great!! :) We both also enjoyed a dessert which was tasty too! (Sticky Toffee Pudding and Raspberry Meringue) The service... More

Went there last night for mum's birthday (79) with family. My son is Vegan and as there was only vegetarian selections the chef made a 3 course meal especially for him. The young lady who looked after us was excellent and very honest about the food and this was a refreshing change. There was no hurry with the meals and... More

Visited recently with my partner. Nice chilled atmosphere. Bar downstairs with a quaint little restaurant upstairs. Small menu but enough choice !! We opted for the Goats Cheese Tart & Chilli King Prawns to start with. Both very good & inexpensive. My partners Rib Eye was lovely. I chose the Pie, Steak & Ale which for the most part was... More

Tried out the new menu last week, loved the small bites option! Really ideal if you're not hungry enough for a full meal or you just want a light snack. Also comes at a good price. Looking forward to the next visit

I've found the staff friendly and very welcoming. I've eaten at The Cork House three times and the food is lovely and good size portions, the steak is amazing. I've recently tried the small plates menu which is great value for money and I would highly recommend this. Once a month there is live entertainment at The Cork House and... More

Firstly I was disappointed to see the below negative comments, i total disagree, I found the down stairs bar very friendly with a great atmosphere, my friends and I felt very welcome from the moment we walked in. We stayed downstairs for a drink and then were seated in their warm cosy restaurant upstairs. The staff were polite and on... More

I am new to the Stansted area and recently tried out The Corkhouse after many recommendations from locals. Its a fantastic bar and such a lovely Restaurant upstairs. With the choice to eat downstairs as well if you fancy something a bit more casual. I heard they used to do Tapas but recently stopped, however it seems this was only... More

New to the area, we were recommended by our new neighbours to try The Cork House for some Tapas. On arrival we had a drink at the bar, and got the feeling that it was a bit of a 'red-neck' place, if you are a regular then you are welcome, otherwise you are not. Anyway to ordering the food. We...
