A LUNCH AND DAY TO REMEMBER FROM DUBLIN TO CORK AND BACK!!

December 2014 I joined my friend Mary in Cork for Lunch at the Farmgate Restaurant in the English Market in Cork. This seems crazy, but let me tell you well worth the journey. This is day to remember and I really highly recommend everyone to make the trip to Cork for the day. Particularly... read more

Myself and a friend went to Farmgate for lunch back in October and enjoyed our food and the great view over the market. My roast in a roll (pork) was great and the coffee was decent. It has a great atmosphere but can be very busy.

Had lunch here recently and found both the food and service excellent as always. I had the lamb stew which had plenty of flavoursome meat with plenty of potatoes and vegetables. The service was fast and friendly. Very good value for money and great location in the English Market. There was a singer to entertain during lunch - nice touch.

We had the full Irish breakfast for €12. A very disappointing portion for both the price and, let's be honest, the cost of the raw ingredients.

Having heard great reviews I visited Farmgate for a breakfast blaa, and it was one of the best breakfast sandwiches I've had! Lovely bacon and sausage, a nice egg, perfectly toasted blaa, and served with some excellent relish and pickled cucumbers. Couldn't have been better for brunch! Location is great too, especially on the balcony overlooking the market, though the... More

Myself and 4 friends visited Farmgate after a visit to the English market. We were lucky to sit inside, as it was a very cold day, although they do have blankets and an outdoor heater for warmth if you are on the outside balcony.The staff were keen to know if we were to have lunch there. We ordered our meals,... More

Three of us visited the Farmgate Restaurant recently and while the staff were excellent, the restaurant was cold and I thought the limited menu was completely overpriced - €13 for a slice of tart (quiche) and some dressed leaves. The food was tasty but you could have got equally good food for much less nearby i.e. two course early bird... More

I came here for breakfast, and went for a classic Full Irish. The food was all delicious, in particular the sausage and pudding, and it was really great to have a coffee or meal with the views of the English Market below. Inside, the walls are surrounded with letter records and old chemist style displays, and it really adds to... More
