The Cork House
We come every Christmas Eve and so glad we just made it before tier 4 to help support this amazing place.
Always a smile on their faces and great at advising on the gin selection ;).
We’ll always return.
Great cozy atmosphere. Great food and friendly staff. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!
Considering the new measures introduced by the government the Cork House still had a warm atmosphere and we had a lovely evening.
Very good service, food was very good although limited choice due to reduced menu.
Would recommend having a meal there
I ate here doing the government help to eat out which was lovely. However this time the food wasn’t so good . A bit over cooked! The cocktails were nice but small . Does half price cocktails mean half size ?
Nice cocktail, friendly staff. Terrible food, slow service and not worth the wait, bland and almost inedible. Would not eat there again.
Great meal very well organised pleasant atmosphere would highly recommend
when we arrived table was ready for us....
there was a gentleman behind the bar who was really friendly and looked after us.
All round very good food drinks and service.
We will be back.
Food was nice, service a little slow but it was quite busy, so to be understood.
A little disappointed with our meal, calamari starter lacking in flavour and fish burger, whilst having good fish content was quite dry, sea bass portion was small and once again lacking in flavour. Shame.
Came here for a meal before dropping our son off at Stansted Airport. Food was second to none, service very friendly and professional. Will definitely consider eating here again if in the area.
We always love our visits here. We have a tradition to go every Xmas eve and the service is warm, friendly and make you feel part of the family. The music for Xmas eve was fabulous too. Always will come back.
As always, a friendly warm welcome by the fantastic team. Food was good, the menu seemed a little limited this time?
Sadly, the restaurant was quite chilly, even though they sat us by the radiator and had an additional heater.
Nevertheless, a lovely relaxed evening, with great service!
We booked a table on here to then find out they were fully booked. We were extremely disappointed as we had heard how nice the cork house was.
We should have guessed when the restaurant was empty on a Wednesday lunch time that it wasn’t going to be great. The service was lovely but the food was awful.
Father’s Day meal, food was delicious and fantastic service.
I’ve eaten twice when it’s the mid week menu and I’ve been really impressed with the food and service. A great price for a mid week catch us with friends.
We went for sunday lunch. The positives first ..we could not fault the food, everything was well presented and good quality. I loved the seabass. The staff were lovely and friendly and helpful.
The negatives ... the glasswear was all smeary and it wasn't just ours which came from the bar, i noticed the same on the empty tables. Also the tables were very sticky. Just needs more attention to detail.
I was pleasantly surprised by the Cork House. I didn't realise there was even a restuarant upstairs! It was pretty quiet, but the food was delicious and the wait staff were very friendly. Not a huge menu but a good selection and a few specials to choose from. I would recommend the home made scotch eggs! A great little local place, reasonably priced. Would go back for sure.
Very friendly and helpful welcome which left really good impression. Food was pleasant not outstanding but made a good stop for what was a business lunch
going to be going again, food was very good, and the ambiance was very good, and the decor had a lot of character which added to the ambiance of the place.
Won’t be returning anytime soon
Fab food, amazing service from the staff , amazing live music drifting up the stairs !!
Will be back
Have been there many times food always good. This particular evening was quiz night and although they warned us when we booked we weren’t prepared for the loudness of the speaker which was positioned above our heads.
Good food and good value for money.
Friendly, attentive staff, very relaxed atmosphere, would definitely recommend to friends
Excellent friendly service, food and wine. A great meal for a reasonable price.
A little gem- lovely atmosphere, people and food. Always a friendly and warm welcome.
I have also been on their “Newmarket Ladies Day” too- fabulous day out .
Really good, quiet, Monday evening dinner the The Cork House.
Were given a very friendly welcome on entering this period bistro and had a drink in the small bar area while making our food choices. Simple menu with small dish / tapas and sharing platter options as well as starters and mains.
Decent food served promptly by very upbeat and attentive waitress, with the prawn and chorizo tapas particularly enjoyable.
Good value meal and a place to go back to.
The food and service were both excellent. It we also good value for money and the setting was lovely. Will definitely use it again.
Great food and fantastic staff very friendly would highly recommend
Very disappointed. Venue was empty and cold. We were taken up to a soulless room. We had planned to eat but quickly scrapped that idea. Coke was flat, coffee average and water tasted weird. Couldn’t get out fast enough.
Lovely food, very friendly staff and service. Always enjoy dining here.
Booked here before flying from Stansted instead of eating expensive Airport hotel restaurant!
Nice atmosphere with friendly service. Good menu choice and good for veggies! Enjoyed the food and will return!
First time at the restaurant and pleased with the quality of the food and excellent value
The service was excellent and am sure it is a great place for dinner .
Friday lunchtime date was a perfect setting great food and service tapas was perfect for a romantic lunch
As we were the only diners at lunchtime, the ambience was immeasurable ! Pity about the lack of other diners, because the food, drinks and service were excellent. The sticky toffee pudding is to die for !!!
We booked a table here as we were flying out of Stansted the following day and did not want to eat at the hotel. What a great find. The staff were very friendly and made us feel welcomed, the food was delicious and the wine was oh so good, thank you ladies for a great night. We will definitively see you next time we are in the area.
Lovely burger and triple cooked chips. Staff were lovely and friendly. Would definitely return.
lovely night with friends, great food but above all you must try the gin fizz!
