Great service, good food and reasonable wine prices. Would encourage people to try this restaurant. Don't park in the restricted bays as wardens prowl at night. Good free car park 100yards walk away.

We had a nice dinner here with family on a Saturday evening. Food well cooked and presented and, most important to me, served with a smile and courtesy. There is a bar downstairs - wine, keg beers & lagers with the restaurant upstairs. Tables are close enough to be cosy but not cramped. We did ask for our reservation to... More

Love going to The Cork House; for food or just drinks with friends! The eye candy helps but this ain't the only good thing about this classy bistro. The food is outstanding, the atmosphere is great and the bar is cool and elegant. A great place to spend the evening with a good bottle of bubbly. During the summer months... More

We took my sister in law for her birthday. We are obviously half a century older than the usual clientele but we were made very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. The waitresses were charming and attentive and the food was delicious. The bar downstairs is airy and light despite the age of the building and upstairs the restaurant... More

When ordering we advised the waitress that we were using a taste card and she said this was fine. Our food arrived and it was lovely, really well done to the chef. However when the bill arrived we were advised that taste card did not work with the tapas menu. It does not mention this on the app / taste... More

I went here mid week for a meal with a friend. Even though there isn't many tables upstairs the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. The food was excellent and service was brilliant. I used a tastecard so got 2 for 1 which made it an even better value meal. Would highly recommend.

My time is the most precious thing i have, when i get some free time I enjoy the atmosphere the welcome and great quality food and staff that you can only dream of. Feel weird writing a review as if everyone finds out how amazing this little bar is, I won't be able to get in.... A1+

You know what you're going to get at The Cork House. A varied wine list and a good selection of draught lagers are a given - what sets this place apart is the service. Always friendly and attentive, whether it's a quiet night during the week or a busier evening at weekends. Food is always of a consistently good quality... More

The cork house is a great place to go. The food is delicious during the day and in the evening and is also lovely if you just fancy a drink-the wine is really tasty! The staff are also nice and friendly and the place has a really warm and homely feel to it. It's very chilled, comfortable and cozy. All... More
