This was only my second visit to Cork and on the first occasion, a few years ago, someone recommended the English Market and the Farmgate. Both are well worth a visit, so I returned for lunch with my wife and two friends. They shared my enthusiasm and we had a really well cooked two course lunch and a bottle of... More

This is first class for good quality food. I had seafood chowder with Brie and beetroot sandwich. It was fantastic. The place is always busy which tells you how good it is.

Great traditional food from locally sourced ingredients. Never a bad experience there and also a great atmosphere in the hustle and bustle of the English market.

Situated above the English Market in the centre of Cork City, this restaurant uses the fresh produces from the market below. Guaranteed fresh produce for each meal. I have eaten here a few times with my daughter and keep going back for more. It is very busy and a bit cramped but this is due to the location. They have... More

There are two Farmgates in Cork, one in the English Market - which has a great atmosphere and delicious food - and one in East Cork in Midleton. Both have the most delicious cakes, but the food in Midleton is exceptional. It was the best meal I've ever had. Quite pricey for dinner but lunch and cakes are standard enough... More
