On passing to visit family in Stansted thought I will give this place a try. A warm welcome by the bar staff especially Steve. It was great to also just sit outside and enjoy my drink. They had food on offer tapas I think but I wasnt hungry at the time so didn't try although was very tempted. Have to... More

We came across this bistro by accident, and we weren't disappointed. We had a drink at the bar, and then we were shown upstairs to the restaurant. Given a choice of tables (it was quite quiet on a Monday evening) we chose a nice big table and we'd been given the menus downstairs so we were able to order straight... More

This is a small bar with dining area upstairs. We booked a table when we were staying at an airport hotel before flying, as it is only a few miles from Stansted. The staff were friendly and the service was good, if a little slow. The food was delicious and worth the wait. We would definitely return next time we... More

This place does a good tapas menu and great trivia night. Other visits have been a little hit and miss.

We found this restaurant by chance after flying in to Stansted on a stormy night this week. The road to Stansted Mountfitchet is a winding country lane but the village is so quaint that it is worth the detour. The Cork House Bistro was meant to close their kitchen but still served us when we arrived half an hour later... More

We awere sunday after 2 pm for a late lunch. As we came in, there were no more a lot of guests there, so we colld choose our own place. I decided me for the "Shepardspie" and mineralwater. It was real good food, the Waitress looked good for us - go in and feel well!

A cracking little place. A good selection accross the menu. Good service, quality food at reasonable prices. Might be awkward to book for more than 15 people as space is limited but I recommend this place, 4 out 5.
