Farmgate Café one of Sunday Times 100 best restaurants 2020
We are absolutely delighted to be included in this year’s Sunday Times list of top 100 restaurants in Ireland.
Rebecca Harte’s culinary curation in Cork’s venerable Farmgate Café acts as a prism, dispersing new light on how you see a dish of stout rarebit, or tripe and onions with drisheen or cottage pie, or cod with kale. Ever since Rebecca’s mother, Kay, first opened the café – up the stairs above Cork’s English Market — people have suggested that Farmgate food is some sort of historical re-enactment, but this is wrong. The fact is that Farmgate food is ageless, and Rebecca has simply shone a sharp new light on the glory that is steamed Lady’s Bridge potatoes, and the purity of a crunchy, white soda bread, and the elemental loveliness of Oysterhaven oysters. Great staff, great value.
