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 Wally Dutton’s in Kelsall, 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.
