The Corkman - - CHRISTMAS IN MALLOW -

WITH any bit of luck, over the next few weeks we’ll all get a chance to let some­body else do the cook­ing and, es­pe­cially in the hec­tic run-up to Christ­mas, it’s great to get out and have your food served up to you.

And if you hap­pen to be in Mallow, all the bet­ter - be­cause you’ve come to the right place.

Cer­tainly, with any num­ber of high pro­file eater­ies in Mallow, and so much award-win­ning lo­cal food pro­duc­ers, it’s a highly com­pet­i­tive land­scape, but th­ese have raised the bar for all our lo­cal restau­rants and it’s the pun­ters who ben­e­fit.

What we can now ex­pect is top qual­ity, fresh in­gre­di­ents - sourced lo­cally where pos­si­ble - cooked and served by pro­fes­sion­als who’ve got Gor­don Ram­sey’s chid­ings echo­ing in their ears. In other words, the chef at your lo­cal restau­rant knows well what’s de­manded by the din­ers of to­day, and they, too, want to serve the best.

In Mallow, for­tu­nately, our lo­cal chefs have great am­mu­ni­tion in the top qual­ity lo­cal in­gre­di­ents on the mar­ket, in­gre­di­ents good enough to grace any plate from a hun­gry house­wife to a queen - lit­er­ally.

But, re­mem­ber, din­ing out is not all about the food, as im­por­tant as that is. No, it’s about the ex­pe­ri­ence and the com­pany you keep, too. Christ­mas is def­i­nitely a time to call up a few friends - per­haps some you haven’t called in a while - and set­tle on a lo­cal spot to meet up, sit down to­gether and en­joy a tasty meal served up by peo­ple who value you be­ing there? It makes for a great night out - catch­ing up, re­new­ing ac­quain­tances and hav­ing a laugh around a good meal.

And it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg - there’s plenty of great value out there. In fact, there’s great value in most eater­ies if you take a closer look.

No, most of us can’t eat out ev­ery other day, but we all de­serve a treat. So, find your niche at a lo­cal eaterie in Mallow and make some time for you. For you and a friend or two.

With ar­ti­san food and drink pro­duc­ers sup­ply­ing lo­cal out­lets, Mallow does of­fer the very best when it comes to gas­tro­nomic ex­pe­ri­ences. In fact, Mallow of­fers a host of eat­ing ex­pe­ri­ences for ev­ery palate.

The only thing that is dif­fi­cult about eat­ing out in Mallow is de­cid­ing where to go. Ex­cel­lent value lunches, spe­cial oc­ca­sion din­ing, fam­ily friendly, fun night with the friends, ro­man­tic ren­dezvous – you find the com­pany you want, and we’ll help you find where to eat.

There is a real sense of pride for the food on of­fer in Mallow eater­ies and there is no short­age of din­ing op­tions, whether it’s fine din­ing or pub grub that you are af­ter, you’re spoilt for choice.

Cen­tre Stage host their Christ­mas cabaret in Spring­fort Hall on Mon­day/Tues­day, De­cem­ber 10/11.
