If like us at Hi Mag you love a midweek treat or maybe a Saturday afternoon indulgence then The Ambassador Hotel might just be the place to check out. Central and refurbished the lastest offering from them is great whether you fancy a salad or a three course meal. There is a fully stocked bar to cater to all of your beverage needs. The welcome is warm a friendly and the service was quick but not intrusive.

What interested us at Hi Magazine was the new lunch menu which of course we had to try .

The menu compiled by  head Chef Gary Barnard, brings a variety of modern dishes using the very best local produce available. Gary brings a wealth of experience to the Cookhouse & Bar Cork which he has gained through 20 years’ in the Irish catering business, where he has held senior positions in the kitchens of national and muti-national hotel chains. With this knowledge comes fantastic cuisine.

An example of some of the new exciting lunch dishes range from small bites like our new BBQ Wings, McGettigan’s Nachos, Spicy Tiger Prawn Pil Pil, to our great new sambo selection with chef favourites including Slow Cooked Pulled Pork, Roast Chicken Salad, Club Sandwich, Toasted Special, House Ploughman’s the list goes on, to delicious new salad additions such as Seared Yellow Fin Tuna Nicoise, Mediterranean Salad and much more. We think that regardless of your taste, whether you are looking for a substantial meal or light bite the selection will not disappoint.

McGettigan’s Cookhouse & Bar caters for any occasion, be it family events, special occasions, office parties, corporate gatherings, communions, confirmations and weddings. With the summer season coming McGettigan’s Cookhouse and Bar also boasts Cork’s extremely popular outdoor decking area which is a huge attraction for summer cocktail evenings, outdoor BBQs and social and corporate gatherings over the Summer, with customers enjoying fantastic ambience, great food and spectacular views over Cork City. Here is hoping for an Indian summer!
