Delicious Christmas Meal!

We went to The Cork House for a work Christmas Meal and really impressed – great food and really good atmosphere. The staff were fantastic too and went out of their way to make it a great evening! I had quite a few Christmas meals out this year and this was by far the best. Highly recommended!

Fantastic little bar in a lovely place! the food is lovely, homemade (you can tell by quality) and is served up beautifully to a 5* standard! The restaurant is separate from the Bar which is great when your trying to have a private conversation! The drinks are resonably price for where it is! The staff are friendly and welcoming and...

I came here for a friends surprise birthday meal, and The Cork House made it very special by baking a cake.. Everything was beautifully cooked.. I would highly recommend the duck breast 👌 Thank you so much for a great evening..

Went here for a meal with friends recently. Decent range of food, nice venue, food was agreeable. Personally thought it was alright, not brilliant, and may venture back. There are better places to eat in this village, but they are more expensive.

I visit here often with my girlfriend or friends. The Cork House is a bar downstairs and a cosy restaurant up stairs. We always receive great service and always enjoy the food, I can recommend the Monday steak offer. We have also eaten in the bar area in quieter nights which makes a change.

We have visited here many times with friends or family or just as a couple. It's a crowded bar downstairs with a resturanut up stairs. We usually have tapas and I always order the pork belly which is lovely. I'm a keen Sauvignon Blanc drinker and have been tempted by alternatives on the wine menu, I now opt for the... More
