In line with Government advice, we closed our doors on Friday evening (20th March) for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, our takeaway service also had to come to an end in line with the closure. We would love to keep supplying the village with takeaway food during this time but it just isn’t feasible. The most important thing is the health & wellbeing of our staff & customers, and continuing to provide a takeaway service puts that at risk & goes against what the Government are trying to achieve.
We thank you all for your amazing support in these difficult times. We have the loveliest customers and we are all super grateful for you. We will be back as soon as we are allowed to reopen those doors. xxx

Cornichon is a bistro in Tarvin, Cheshire, about 4 miles from Chester, run by husband and wife Ben and Lisa, along with friend Jamie – who all relocated from Nottingham to open the restaurant in September 2015. The Gunnery is a Grade-II listed Georgian building that was once a family run corn merchants and grocers, the original shop fittings & one of the shop counters are still intact.
Our menu is devised from what is in season & inspired by what we love to eat. We make everything we can in house, including our ice creams, sourdough bread & burger buns, bacon, black pudding, soft cheeses & syrups. We source our coffee through Adams & Russell, a small batch coffee roaster based in Birkenhead. Our meat is from Farmer’s Meats in Chester, our real ale & some delicious gin is from Weetwood & our frequently changing draught beers are usually from Wild Horse in Llandudno & Polly’s Brew Co. in Mold. Much of our wine is sourced by the lovely Christopher at Covino (Northgate Street, Chester) who is an advocate of minimal intervention winemaking.
We received the award of “Best Newcomer” at the Taste Cheshire Food and Drink Awards 2016, and in 2017 we went home with a silver award in the ‘Best Small Restaurant’ category.
