We visited Corin for the first and last time as the Fine Dining option at the Ava on Main Street. It will now be rebranded as a Bistro as business is not sufficient to sustain the current menu option. Although the menu was fairly limited (4 options at each course) and set at a two course or three course price... More

I think some of the negative reviews on here are a little unjust. Having visited several times the food has always been fairly good and the service friendly. Charlie in particular has been outstanding on every occasion, taking time to recommend wines and checking we enjoyed them. The main issue I would have is that the pricing isn't in keeping... More

Hi domesticgoddess31, Thank you for your review, we found all of your comments and concerns extremely fair. A running theme through reviews has always been; pricing, wines and decor. All areas The Ava Bistro will improve upon. One point we would like to make however is our extremely good value for money mid week set menu, weekend Table D'hote and... More

Excellent food, beautifully presented and the service was friendly and efficient. On top of that, the meal was great value for money. I understand they're going to rebrand themselves soon to ensure people don't think this is High Street Corin relocated. I look forward to the reopening in March and I hope I'll be one of their first diners when... More

Visited Corin at the Ava on Main Street on a Thursday evening. We had heard good reports of Corin when it was on High Street and that it was very good value. Last night we were a group of three and had a lovely table with a window view. There were few other diners. I found the room cold and... More

We came here on a Saturday night for a family dinner as we had heard good things and wanted to try before it was closed. Unfortunately a number of things were not great about the experience. The food came incredibly fast and we were finished well before the 8pm time slot for the next table. We were made aware that... More

Having loved Corin in precious location on High street felt we had to try the new one before it closed. Very disappointed. Bring back Philip with his lovely warm greetings etc. Restaurant was freezing, food mediocre, service below average. We were greeted by gentleman who told us the Malbec wine was now back on but when we asked waitress for... More

Hi Eileen, We are so glad you loved Corin on High Street but we hope you didn't come to dine with us recently under the presumption it would be the same. We have came away from fine dining, offering a higher quality style of bistro food. When were you in dining with us? By supplying us with a date and... More

I heard horror stories from the previous location of Corin (From friends/relatives no hearsay) so I avoided it. My wife noticed their Kids eat free on Sundays and thought yeah why not may as well. From the moment we got in there I knew it was going to be good. Really nice décor - modern and light. The waitress/Manageress (never... More

Our daughter had her wedding reception at the Corin. The food was amazing and staff couldn't do enough for you. It made a special day outstanding. Many thanks to all the staff and especially the chefs. Charlie was really helpful with the wines. Look forward to seeing you all in the New Year

Having never visited the old Corin on High Street, I'd been looking forward to eating here for a long time. We booked for a recent Saturday night and no issues getting accommodated. We were greeted by our waitress, a very pleasant girl, didn't catch her name but she spoke with a foreign accent. Top marks for her service throughout the... More
