With entrances from Paul Street and Daunt Square, The Woodford Bar, in the Hugenot Quarter of Cork, has a trading history dating back to the mid eighteenth century when the building was originally owned by the well known Cork wine merchants, Woodford Bourne & Co.
Now with an extensive wine menu and a wide variety of beers and spirits and fresh local food cooked daily, The Woodford Bar caters for all tastes from discerning drinkers to lazy diners, from Saturday night revellers to shoppers having a coffee, from Wednesday night quiz buffs to live music aficionados. Here at the Woodford we endeavour to create a warm home from home atmosphere where we serve great local food and drink, in delicious surroundings with friendly faces aplenty.
The Woodford channels a relaxed vibe. During the day, the bar has a warm Parisian feel to it, with comfy leather sofas, rustic wooden scrubbed tables and mix and match armchairs to sink into, not to mention the wonderfully ornate wood and stained glass “snug” areas, for those wanting something a little more private. On Friday and Saturday nights, the Woodford transforms into a late bar with resident DJ’s and dancing til 2am. Shilling Lane, the entrance from Daunt Square, offers patrons the chance to smoke outside in warm, safe, private surroundings whilst not missing out on the buzz of the bar.
Whether you’re in search of a bite to eat with friends, a few beers with your colleagues after work with some good old fashioned banter or a proper night out on the town, dancing the night away til 2am with our resident DJ’s, this pub will surely be an ideal watering hole for you.
Pop in, book ahead, host your own party, eat, drink, dance, enjoy……………
