The Commons Inn Bar and Grill restaurant
Commons Road, Cork City
Throughout the day we also offer a range of fresh homemade soups, freshly made tasty sandwiches, fresh salads and locally handcrafted breads. Of course homemade desserts are on offer for those with a sweet tooth. All soups produced are gluten free, and lunches are available for take away at a reduced price!
In the evening our bar food menu boasts a number of local specialties and specialises in the finest steaks, but also featuring favourites such as fresh seafood, pastas, and chicken dishes. Our beef is aged for a MINIMUM of 35 days and is Guaranteed Irish. We are also renowned for our use of local beef, all of which is cooked and seared at high temperatures on our char grill. Our steaks are all melt in the mouth and packed full of flavor from the aging process and enhanced from the flavors of the char grill. Our meat dishes are served with a range of sauces and sides which you can choose from depending on how decadent or healthy you feel. You might like to try our Smoked Adobo sauce, or a classic creamy peppercorn sauce. Another popular favourite is our massive 14oz bone in crackling chargrilled pork chop. Our evening menu also includes a number of weekly specials consisting of dishes specially prepared by our chef based on local and seasonal produce.

I was staying in the hotel for 3 nights and decided to have a meal in the restaurant. We were getting fed up of fast food and unhealthy options. I had roast turkey and stuffing and my wife chose fillet of pork and I have to say it was almost faultless, my only minor complaint was the vegetables were brought in a separate dish and they were only warm but this didn't really detract from what was a lovely meal, my wife also had the death by chocolate for dessert which she described as "to die for" (no pun intended). The waitress was very lovely, very friendly and attentive without being over bearing, all in all a lovely meal at affordable price in a relaxing atmosphere, well worth a visit.

There is a sign outside saying- Best carvery in Cork. I eat out a lot and I have to say it is. There is also a set menu for €20- 3 courses... only fault I have is that you are sooo stuffed after it! Staff and management are efficent and polite and good humoured! I have had both a communion and confirmation get together here and they are execptional at dealing with large bookings.

i have eaten here a few times and recently went for the sunday carvery here, i found that the food was ok, nothing spectacular, portion sizes were good and the price is standard, i do know however that on special occassions (ie - fathers day) the price goes up by €1 on average per meal. it gets quite busy here as well on a sunday but nice for a relaxing sunday brunch

Above average bar food. Good menu but service can be quite slow. Nice place to dine if not in a hurry
