Pantry and Corkscrew
The Pantry and Corkscrew epitomises perfectly what a West Coast, Wild Atlantic Way restaurant should offer its customers. Dermot and Janice haul in all the tasty marvels of their hinterland – Mescan beer; Killary Clams; Andarl Farm pork; Velvet Cloud yogurt; Kelly’s putog; Aran Island’s goat’s cheese; Connemara Smokehouse salmon – and then confect these beautiful things into beautiful dishes, laden with generous, true and satisfying flavours. They are a mighty restaurant twosome, and they have served Westport well for fully seven years now, gaining in confidence the whole while, buoyed on by a simple truth: Dermot’s cooking, with its generosity and its deep sense of culinary culture, is cooking that makes people happy. The wines are delightful, the room is charming, and Janice’s service is the final grace note that brings this jewel of Westport into crystalline focus.
