We were lucky to have booked the last table for 4 this Saturday as the restaurant was packed. We hadn't eaten in The Cork House for quite some time and were keen to go out locally so this fit the bill. We got to the bar a lot, and the atmosphere in there is great; small, cosy, friendly and a... More

My wife and I visited The Cork House for the first time on Saturday and were surprised to find that we were the only people in the dining room, although there were a couple of people in the bar. At first we thought we had picked the wrong place, but then we had the starters and realised that this was... More

Enjoyed a very lovely evening at the cork house. Really good food from the set Christmas menu for our Christmas party. Brilliant service and a great atmosphere with a really good music act playing downstairs. Everything ran smoothly without any fuss. Would recommend to anyone and definitely for any Christmas party's in the future!

I recently visited the cork house with my family for dinner and a glass (or 2) of wine. The staff were so very friendly and the food was so great. The chef even came up to check we enjoyed our meal, which I always think is a really nice touch. I shared a few dishes from the small plates with... More

This bar/restaurant is literally on our door step but have never got round to eating here until now. Very friendly staff and wonderful food make this a good choice for a night out with family or friends.Will definitely return.

We visited the restaurant in Christmas week as reviews we read we're good and we're local but hadn't tried the food here before. It was a lovely intimate restaurant and a very pleasant setting. We went straight up to the restaurant but no one was there except other customers, after popping to the bar we were quickly shown to our... More

We came here having pre-booked a table for a Friday night. The restaurant is small and doesn't serve food for a very long time so definitely book. The menu isn't huge but as someone who isn't a fussy eater that's a good thing as it can take me an age to pick. The menu wasn't entirely the same as the... More

We went here for a birthday lunch. It was pretty hard to decide what to have off the menu, the choice was so good. Friendly service and our total bill for two including a couple of beers and a bottle of wine was only £44. Looking forward to returning.

Booked for a pre flight meal based on TA information. What an excellent place this is. The service was friendly, professional and efficient. The food was incredible. Beautifully cooked and presented and would highly recommend the prawn starter, the burger and the fish. Would certainly return in the future and highly recommend to others.
