I don't want you to think from this statement that you are going to walk into a 5 star Michelin style restaurant, but what we do, you will struggle to find anywhere else.
We pride ourselves in the quality of our food and hospitality and the relaxed atmosphere that makes the experience of eating at the Cosy something you will want to return to.
I think that the concept of the Cosy Corner originally was to provide food to the quality that we would like and enjoy.
Whilst in business for many years in the UK we found ourselves eating out quite a bit. After a while I started to realise that most restaurant food was quite poor. I know this sounds harsh but we found at the time most were serving frozen veg that tasted of very little including the potato products and poorly cooked protiens that were probably frozen too. I asked myself, once the novelty of eating out had worn off, "would I be happy with this meal if i had made it at home?" and most of the time the answer would be "No"
I decided that when we started I would not serve a meal unless it was fresh and how I would eat it at home!
We started with just 10 items on our menu. These items were a balance of good quiality home cooked foods.

Since then I have worked hard to develop new foods for the Cosy. It took 2 years of trying to perfect our burgers. I would not be happy until they were exceptionally good. i tried different cuts of meat, different fat contents fillers and spic blends and different thicknesses of burger.
I studied the cooking techniques of the burger and how different cooking styles affected the meat.
I settled with the burger we have now. The burger so tasty we have impressed many chefs that have tried them and that is the ultimate compliment for me! an example
"All I can say is amazing people, amazing food! Seriously you will not find a better burger anywhere in Europe, possibly the world! Addictive is all I can say, I would urge everyone in the area to go and indulge, because you would be missing out on a treat if you don't, and this coming from a fussy chef who thinks he knows best! "
Since then we have icreased the size of our menu and have similar comments about many of our dishes from those working in the food industry!
Our serene and peaceful secluded gardens make for a relaxing atmosphere, day or night and we offer a welcoming hospitality to all.
People flock from all over to sample our handmade burgers. Fresly seasoned and pressed just before hitting the grill.
Our traditional pies are cooked fresh to order and are made from a traditional recipe handed down through generations of our family.
As I said, we are under no illusion that The Cosy Corner is a posh restaurant, in fact quite the opposite. We aim for a more relaxed environment where you, the customer can feel at home. You wont find us in Black trousers, white shirts and ties and don't expect the staff to bow and call you Sir or Madam!! our customers are our friends and that is how we want them to feel.
We make no bones about the fact that you may have to wait for your food, sometime, when busy, and only when busy!! but, when you get it you will see it was worth the wait, we cant cook food freshly and fast, and out of the two I know what I demand from the kitchen!! Fresh tasty food.
The Cosy is a great place to relax and have a laugh to accompany your meal, so to most, it's not waiting, it's enjoying the experience. We say, if you don't want to come here and wait for your food, then go somewhere else where your food is waiting for you!!
Pop along and meet us and enjoy the food and atmosphere that keeps people coming back time after time. We look forward to meeting you.
