Review on Corner House
Built in 1832, the Corner House, formerly known as The Mulberry Tree, a cavernous one-time drinkers' den has had a rich life, serving time as a wheelwright's, blacksmith's and even a brewery before taking on a new lease of life in 2000. The open-plan interior now has a contemporary feel with dark wood polished tables laid with pretty vases of flowers and cream walls adorned with interesting pictures. The current owners chef Ross Lawson and Helen Hunter have created a welcoming ambience for guests popping in for a leisurely drink or a meal in the restaurant.
Ross makes excellent use of fresh local ingredients for a menu that changes regularly according to the availability of seasonal produce. Opt for a starter of Goosnargh chicken liver parfait, onion marmalade and toasted brioche or salmon and cod Thai fish cakes with Asian salad. When it comes to main courses there's pan fried fillets of sea bass, crushed potatoes, herb buerre blanc and seasonal vegetables or from the Grill, 10oz Cumbrian fell-bred pork chop with blue cheese sauce. Elsewhere enjoy their popular gourmet burgers served in a toasted brioche bun, with seasoned fries, black pepper mayonnaise and pickled gherkins. To finish there are desserts in the shape of sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream or a warm Bakewell Tart with amaretto and black cherry ice cream.
