A uniquely designed gastro pub, The Corner House offers a calm retreat from the city’s busy shopping district.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Corner House restaurant menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest seasonal ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include Mediterranean mezze, seared chicken breast with sweet potato rosti & buttered British beans, and spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.
The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Corner House bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and eclectic sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.
Set within the bustling city centre, The Corner House in Cardiff is a 5-minute walk from Cardiff Central Station.

Food was good but service a bit slow Too noisy for a meal could do with reducing music over speakers

Unfortunately I cannot recommend after my experience. Previous visits have been great however this time I felt the service was not as good as previous. We were hosting guests too so this was not a great experience for us. This was pre booked therefore they knew we were coming therefore I'd have expected a better service. We were welcomed by the starters that were not available x2. It was not until the starters were provided to us that we then told 3 of main meals were not available that we had already ordered. Slightly embarrassed as our guests had ordered these. There were several dishes that were not available as well as side dishes. We were told they were a chef down and also that the 'new system's was not working which meant our mains had gone to another table meaning we had to re order. Having visited previously and had excellent service, I am somewhat disappointed with the numerous issues we experienced. I appreciate things do go wrong but in this instance something provided as a goodwill as we had chosen this restaurant would have been appreciated.

Food was really excellent. We both had the pigs cheek which was gorgeous. Wild board ravioli to start which was really honestly unbelievably good. Salmon and prawn mousse was lovely. We also had a chocolate orange desert which was delicious. The only disappointing thing was the fries. They were overcooked.

Very disappointing this time around as none but of our meals were particularly good. Whether it was time of year or time with of day, the Christmas choice was average with pale pigs in blankets & over cooked veg but the options were poor as the ribeye steak was gristle & salmon portion tiny with hardly any vegetables. The cheeseboard was mean compared to last time as if they were afraid they'd run out the of portions later in the day, same applied to the creme brûlée. Service was ok although they forgot we'd ordered some drinks & we needed to remind them. Staff were friendly enough so we'll go back for a drink though doubt we'll eat there again
