How wonderful to enter a restaurant and be warmly greeted by pleasant and knowledgeable staff. This was my first impression of Corin. The restaurant is beautifully presented; it is possible to have a conversation without hearing what is going on at the next table. A further plus point was, when someone at a neighbouring table took a call on his mobile phone, he took his phone outside. These are introductory comments, serving to illustrate that the atmosphere in Corin is relaxed and totally customer-focussed. Staff were happy to discuss the menu. We opted for the two-course option at £26-50 each, thinking, correctly, that we could not manage three courses [£32-50]. We were greeted with a selection of breads followed by an amuse bouche. A cranberry sorbet followed the first course. The food was excellent. My partner enjoyed his langoustine starter and sea bream main course; I chose seared scallops to start and followed - unimaginatively, you might think - with steak. However, I seldom eat steak away from home as I have been invariably disappointed. On this occasion, the steak, a good-sized sirloin, was cooked to perfection. The wine was keenly priced. I chose an excellent Chilean Sauvignon Blanc. If you want mediocre food served by indifferent staff in an atmosphere where people sit cheek-by-jowl gossiping on mobile phones, don't go to Corin. If you want a thoroughly enjoyable and unique dining experience, then Corin is the place for you.
