“Great addition to the area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

Living relatively local to the area we have tried The Corkscrew on a couple of occasions and have been pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is in a converted bungalow which belies the pretty interior. Menu is a little more imaginative than the standard fayre. I had the calves liver starter which was really nice although just slightly overcooked and pork belly main which had a good crispy skin. There is only a wine license at present , but I believe a full spirit and beer license is imminent. Prices are very reasonable for the quality. Its open all day and being close to a school can be a little too busy when school finishes.
definitely worth a try !!

“Great addition to Tullyallen”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

Restaurant is decorated to high standard, lovely paintings hanging on walls. Sitting at some tables, chefs can be seen at work in the kitchen, which appears quite small.
Menu is not vast but has a reasonable selection. Presentation of all dishes was excellent. Taste wise, some dishes were better than others for our group of 4 diners. Ravioli dish probably the highlight whereas the stuffed chicken breast was overlooked & dry. Wine selection well price priced.

“Very Good Indeed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

It is refreshing to come across a little gem of a place that provides the right service, atmosphere and food. The emphasis is on quality and it shows. Priced reasonably and always made to feel welcome whether you are having a meal or just an afternoon tea. Highly recommended.

“Little dining jewel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

Visited this little restuarant on Saturday evening, what a surprise we got, only description to do it justice is a simple WOW, do not be misled by the very basic exterior, enter the door and the warmth and style embrace you.
But it is the food one visits a restuarant for and you will be blown away with both quality and presentation, I can honestly say this place could put a lot of 5star establishments to shame.
Simply sublime.
The managers and staff are so calmly professional, pleasant, fun but never missing a beat,
Some one is doing a great job just perfecting this skill.
Congratulations to all involved, what a wonderful team, Tullyallen is blessed to have snared such an accomplished business. H
