This is a really nice little bistro to have lunch. There's something for everyone on the menu. I went here last Sunday with my family. Staff are so helpful and friendly - nothing is too much trouble. Only one small comment - I ordered the peanut butter cheesecake for dessert. I only ate a couple of mouthfuls as it tasted... More

En route from Castlebar to Dublin, Athlone was a great stop and we were so pleased we went to the Corner House for lunch.

Tried the Corner House for breakfast this morning and the food and service were both wonderful. Very relaxing spot with a real homely feel. Food was really good and they have a nice menu. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Athlone.

We went here for an early dinner, because one of our friends was leaving work. Had great food and they were in no rush to move us, we could have stayed chatting all evening and they wouldn't have minded

We were recommended the corner house bistro by a sales employee in the town shopping centre, she said it was great. We weren't disappointed, it was lovely. While we were waiting on our food, we received a taster of the soup of the day which was spinach and broccoli - it was a pleasant surprise and something I am thinking... More
