Myself and wife were constant visitors to the Farmgate when our kids were very young during the daytime opening hours, enjoying the fab food and friendly atmosphere etc.We never really got a chance to fine dine at night time as one can imagine with kids that young it would only end up constantly texting babysitters, not relaxed and rushing the...

While this is a very small restaurant, the taste if the meal exceeds any wait time you may have for a table. Many items offered are made fresh from the products fold at the English Market downstairs. We had the chicken salad, which was fresh greens and seared chicken breast tenders. The salad also had onion, beets, tomato and cucumbers.... More

Great chowder every time I come for lunch. The staff are also very attentive now making sure that patrons are seated as quickly as possible. The restaurant is situated in the most amazing gallery overlooking the wonderful English Market. Perfect location to enjoy delicious food.

The breakfast was nice enough, although my son said he didn't like the porridge. My full Irish turned up quickly and we were still waiting for his porridge so he ate my sausages which filled him up before his arrived. It turned out the man at the counter had forgotten to take for the porridge and my son's juice so... More

We walked into town from the River Lee Hotel for a quick breakfast and we both had a sausage blaa (white bun) and coffee. The architecture of the cafe (top floor of the English Market) is wonderful and the cafe keeps true to this, which gives this place its nostalgic feel. Well worth a visit if you're in Cork.

We both got the special for the day (farm raised thyme lemon chicken with mash and carrots). It was spectacular and you could tell the difference between free range in Ireland from the farm raised in the US. The beer selection was local and terrific and the setting on the second floor overlooking the English Market was a great memory.... More

Nice place, but is far too pricey in comparison to other great places in Cork. Had a nice sandwich but felt the price was not justified. However, I will return and try the chowder which I assuming should be tasty as the restaurant has such magnificent access to beautiful fish.

Went here for lunch based on TA reviews. Not much new to say but to continue to endorse the reputation of this small restaurant that sits on the second floor of the English Market. You order when entering and are seated after order/pay. Our food was fantastic. Fresh and plentiful. Lamb stew was delicious. Desserts all looked amazing. We had... More
