We went here for lunch last week. I ordered a mushroom and smoked cheese tart. Upon arrival, it was quite brown and pastry was verging on burnt. On tasting, the taste was overwhelmingly overcooked cheese. It was obvious that it had been left under grill...More

This is a very busy restaurant but I don't think I will return because my soup was cold and staff could not manage to get a simple order right. A good tourist attraction but not for me

My family and I went to the restaurant for breakfast. We got the best services and lovely Irish breakfast. The prices were reasonable. We recommended this restaurant for everyone who would like to meet the traditional Irish restaurant.

We stopped for lunch in Cork to visit the English Market and enjoyed both the shopping experience and Farmgate. We had cod and steak main courses. Good ingredients, well done, courteously served, and moderate prices. Recommend.

We went to the tea side of this restaurant and ordered the berry special brew. Delightful. Plus, the waiter was adorable too -- from Italy, not Ireland, lol. Nice place to rest while shopping. It's located inside the building, just above the market.

Limited seating. Take out also available. Great selection of beers. Diverse menu. We enjoyed the Irish lamb stew and the chicken with lemon and thyme. I would recommend a bottle of the Sunburnt Red Ale.
