About The Cors

There is a true sense of dedication about Nick Priestland’s highly original country house with rooms. The Cors is “perfectly attuned to the relaxed atmosphere of Laugharne”, (The Times), offering just the sort of hospitality that both travellers and locals appreciate. It’s a very personal operation, with attentive service and good modern British food served in the hugely atmospheric candle lit dining room. The cooking is based on sound technique and “clearly cooked with passion, (The Good Food Guide).”

“A bohemian bolthole, one of the best, tucked away in the middle of this attractive little town dominated by a ruined castle overlooking the estuary is this rather unexpected country house with rooms. Set in two and a half acres of formally landscaped gardens and with an elegant facade, it is every inch the country villa from the outside, so the interior, with its air of French grandeur, comes as something as a revelation. Nick is a cook, an artist and gardener; his exotic garden is a beautiful retreat in the summer. Gunnera, bamboo and tree ferns flourish while the river Corran potters past – not a bad stop for tea and drinks in the summer! Inside is a small, personal world of French inspiration, large abstract paintings, bright colours and worn rugs on stripped boards, get things off to a lively start in the bar and lounge. The bar sweeps you back to 1950’s Paris, with doors that open onto a Victorian veranda, where wisteria and clematis ramble. You then move on to the imitate candlelit opulence of the dining room with its gilt mirrors and rich claret reds” (Sawday’s).

It’s time for a change in 2017….

After over 30 years in the restaurant business, 10 years of the Stable Door Winebar, and 22 years at The Cors Restaurant, Laugharne, it’s time for a change!

I want to put the emphasis on the B&B side of the business and get away from the ‘fyne dining’ and cooking-to-order restaurant side. I’m still going to be open for private parties and functions (10 people or more) and you get the whole place to yourselves.

For the B&B’s delicious comfort food is available by arrangement, it will offer a simpler more informal style of dining, think brasserie, wine bar, tapas style food.

A big thank you to all my customers who have supported me over many years, and don’t forget you have only to get together 10 people or more for private dining, parties and functions. We will also be open for special events such as the Laugharne Festival Weekend (every April), Valentine’s Day, New Years and garden functions.

Brasserie/Bistro food will be available most weekends, please check for opening times.

Thank you,
Nick Priestland
