My husband and I have dined here quite a few times over the last 4 years or so and have always enjoyed our meals. On arrival this particular time round we weren't met with an overly warm greeting, and was just pointed to our table rather than taken to our table. We were not overly bothered by this, I think...

While staying at the New Inn we dined twice at the Cornkist. Both meals were excellent, service top notch and friendly.

But when they get is right (see this restaurant as a prime example) boy do we praise it and visit it... More

Great atmosphere albeit noisy even on a weekday night. Food could be done with something more healthy on the menu for our party. We were a party of 3 and we all had difficulty finding something healthy for a during the week dinner. Our potatoes for all 3 meals were cold and even after asking for replacements they were still...

I've been eating in the Cornkist several times and I simply can't fault it! The portions are big, beautifully presented and the good tastes great - nothing bland about it! The Cullen Skink is out of this world and they have a "haddock and prawn melt" to die for. The only thing is that if you want to go there... More

Recently had dinner at the Cornkist Restaurant and don't think I will be back any time soon. The waitress serving us couldn't of made it more obvious that she didn't want to be there, and had clearly just been on a cigarette break as the smell of cigarette smoke was so strong - not what you want to smell before...

Sunday lunch here proved to be a delightful experience. The restaurant was busy with a nice atmosphere. We were quickly offered drinks and having placed our orders the food arrived quickly. I opted for the Sunday roast special which today was roast beef. A generous portion served with delicious gravy, veg and roast potatoes. Two friends opted for pasta dishes... More
