Arrived at the cork bar all tables were full but the top table was free and no reserved sign for a specific time displayed. As a couple we sat had our first drink and was enjoying our afternoon.We asked could we order another drink and...this was fine until just after we received them, were asked if we had been told the table was needed for 5pm this should of been the upmost duty of the waitress who served us.I asked was there another table that we could be moved to but yet again bad service from staff did not even come back with an answer.We literally had taken a few sips of our drink and was approached by the owner who said he needed the table!!! Overall what a bad experience to be made to feel we had to leave.The owner said when we next visit he would give us a drink......but to be honest we will not be returning.More

Went for breakfast last week, waitress didn’t write our order down- resulting in food arriving at our table incorrectly.. not once but twice! Poached eggs were like bullets, so presuming they’d be resurrected off one of the incorrect orders Also ordered more drinks- which never...arrivedMore

We had an enjoyable lunch at The Cork today. Pizzas were good quality and the platters are nice though the indication that they serve 2 must be as a snack as they’re definitely not big enough for a meal for two. Having said that the...food prices are very keen and the platters therefore remain good value. Service was very pleasant but a bit chaotic. They took a long time to take our order and to clear the table after we’d eaten. When they eventually did clear the table they left some of the plates behind until our deserts arrived. Desert was lovely especially the almond tart. I would give it another go. Just tighten up the service guys.More

We have been here several times and never disappointed. Great food, drink, service and clean. Good Covid compliance. The inside of Cork is really nice, with a good ambience. All the food is home made and fresh. Worth a visit.

My son and friends went for a drink here Friday 8 Aug. As there were a few of them, understandably they were asked to split up and he sat on a separate table with 2 friends. Their order was taken after a few minutes. When...about 15 mins later they politely later asked where their drinks were, they were told there was a 20 min delay. A few minutes later someone came to take their money. They explained that they still hadn't received their drinks but, again as they are polite, they paid anyway. They stopped another waitress a little later to say they still did not have their drinks. She said she would look into it. Eventually, and as their friends on the other table were now on their second drink, they pointed out to a waitress that they had been waiting for over an hour. The waitress replied - they felt quite rudely - "its not been an hour babe". They were able to show the receipt for their money was timed at over half an hour ago, and remember, by the time they had paid, they had been waiting over half an hour. They carried on waiting. Eventually they asked again and a manager said they could have their drinks or their money back. He did not give them the impression he was apologetic for the situation. By this stage they had been in the Cork for around an hour and a half and their friends on the next table had finished 2 drinks. At no point did anyone they spoke to actually put themselves out to make their drinks straight away. My son and his friends, despite being cross, just left without registering a complaint. An hour and half waiting to be served in a bar spoils an evening. As someone who likes to eat and drink out in Ormskirk I am really shocked to hear this account of this poor service in the Cork, and I will certainly bear this in mind when I next choose where to go out in Ormskirk. I will also be telling all my friends about how my son and his friends were treated.More

I held my Baby Shower here in November and can only say what a perfect venue it was. The staff were lovely and couldn’t do enough to help. The food and drink were really nice. Couldn’t recommend the place enough.
