Went for a gig at Korks and decided to eat there. Great menu and a huge choice in wines (it is a wine bar). Great service and the food was delicious and excellent value for money - two courses each with two pints of Black Sheep and 3 gin and tonics was £54 although I'm told the beer was a bit cold.

The music venue needs to get it's act together though. It was freezing in there and the person in charge of the sound didn't arrive until late so the sound check was carried out with a full room. Don't think Colin Vearcombe was very impressed and I would be surprised if he returned.

Went back to Korks last weekend for the umpteenth time - Food fab- atmosphere great- just what you need for a good saturday night out! I had the Liver and Bacon with mash - great homely cooking - no frills but perfectly cooked. Will always return as ive never been dissapointed. I enjoy sitting at the bar before the meal - i think its part of the charm of the place- its also an option after the meal if you fancy a leg stretch and a coffee- (thats just my view !!)

A very busy bistro and wine bar . Despite it being Saturday night they managed to accommodate our large party. The food was very good with nothing to fault it. Even the House wine was good. Service is slow when they are busy, because everything is fresh.

Booked a table for Sunday evening several weeks ago (little else open for food on Sunday)
Good food choice but weird set up ordering at bar (presumably to get you to buy a pre meal drink) then seated at table. Why not just have order taken at the table? Bizarre.
Any way food all good, well presented, all served nicely and sensible proportions.
Desserts delivered didn't quite match descriptions on menu.

We had't been to Korks for a while as the prices seemed to increase as the service decreased, however last night four of us went for a meal in the hope that things had improved. The food was not good, scallops to start with at £9 were so small and cooked in a strong cheese sauce that masked any flavour, the duck I had was like leather and the spinach came complete with grit - it was so crunchy it was inedible and put two of us off our food completely. The young staff are very inexperienced, they ask if everything is alright but don't really want an answer. When we complained about the spinach one said 'oh' and the other waitress said that she would tell the chef but I doubt that message ever got back to the kitchen - we were even charged for the gritty spinach, a truely memorable evening for all the wrong reasons.
