The Cors Restaurant
About The Cors
Hidden from the main street in Laugharne, behind its exotically landscaped grounds, is The Cors, a very special and intimate restaurant with rooms. Converted from an exquisite Victorian house, chef-proprietor Nick Priestland has brought this building to life and created a charming blend of period pieces and modernist artworks.
Outside, guests may explore the beautiful grounds where Nick's passion for gardening is evident. Once simply a bog (Cors in Welsh), the glorious garden now provides a delightful setting of trees, shrubs, ponds, modern sculptures and secluded areas of seating.
The Cors has 3 double letting rooms which are all en-suite with newly appointed bathrooms. Each room reflects the elegant, 'shabby chic' style of The Cors.
A room is £80 for 2 people bed and breakfast.
"Quirky and very romantic" - There's a sense of true dedication about this idiosyncratic and very romantic restaurant-with-rooms set in a fairy glade of a bog garden (The Good Food Guide 2011). In the dining room there's a relaxed unpretentious feel. The cooking appeals for its well-executed straight forwardness and dedication to local raw seasonal materials. Short, daily-changing dinner menus deliver the like of Smoked Haddock Creme Brulee and Roasted Rack of Salt Marsh Lamb with a Rosemary Garlic Crust.
The Cors is open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturday evenings and is also open for private parties for 12 people or more. The Good Food Guide and the AA Restaurant Guide have awarded The Cors with 2 Rosettes.
Nick Priestland is host, chef and gardener at this impressive former Victorian house set in four-acres of Pre-Raphaelite-style grounds.
Nick was once an artist and the artistic sensibility is visible in everything he does from the drama of the gardens, to the decoration of the house and the artful presentation of the food. He has brought this building to life and created a charming blend of period pieces and modernist artworks both in his restaurant and the three en-suite guest rooms available.
"The imperative for anyone interested in good food must also be to make a pilgrimage to Nick Priestland's exceptional Cors Restaurant." (Wales In Style).
