Gavin and Michelle had a runaway success story in their opening year, and the public responded with just one word to their hip offering of food and wine in Monk’s Lane: “Gimme!” They are a spirited, unclichéd pair, and the buzz they get from their work translates into a fun-filled destination with delicious, West Cork cooking – lamb quesadillas with salsa fresca; O’Neill’s sausages with mash and craft beer gravy; their signature West Cork plate; carrot, courgette, pecorino and chickpea veggie burger.

Monk’s Lane is a simply darling destination, one of the new arrivals that further defines West Cork.
