Pleasant Airy Fresh Food Restaurant

I had the chowder, which was quite nice, though a tad more fish wouldn't have gone amiss. Two good sized wedges of good old Irish soda bread/wheaten were served with it and this was firm but moist with just the right texture of crumbliness. The better half had a chicken salad sandwich brimming... read more

The restaurant is upstairs from the English Market. I happily took a seat at the bar which overlooks the hustle bustle of the market and some of the vendors. I'm sure the tables were fine - but I don't think there would be this same kind of view. It is up a flight of stairs and the washrooms are on... More

The reason I am focussing on the chowder is that this restaurant is one that I would use myself fairly regularly and always recommend to anyone visiting the English Market in Cork. On my last visit recently I was most disappointed by the chowder that was served (normally a very good dish at this establishment). Firstly there was only one... More

Farmgate serves the best of Irish food. It is situated in te English market which is in itself well worth a visit. You will get fantastic fresh food here and you can watch the world go by from the balcony. There is a full restaurant on one side and a place for coffee, light food on the other. Great cakes.

We ate upstairs of the food hall in the Farmgate café. I started with rock oysters, freshly shucked from the Fish Hall downstairs, plump and tasty. Next I had the charcuterie platter, a nice selection of meats and cheese. My wife had the chicken breast which she really enjoyed. The restaurant has 2 sections, one is a sit down and... More

I had read about this restaurant in the Lonely Planet guide, and decided to check it out during our visit to Cork. We ordered the Irish Stew, Bangers & Mash, lemon tart and cappuccinos. The food was hearty and fairly good value for money. The restaurant had lots of natural light and overlooks the market which was nice. The service... More
