Leeside a little less tasty as restaurant closes

One of Cork’s most popular gourmet burger joints has bid an emotional farewell to its customers after confirming it has “no choice” but to close its doors immediately.

West Cork Burger Company on Washington Street posted the news on social media yesterday, saying the closure was due to “circumstances out of our control”.

The post read: “Our lease on No.6 Washington Street was up and unfortunately not able to be renewed.

“We’ve been on an absolutely amazing journey these last few years but it was only possible because of you, the people of Cork! We could not have done anything without you.

“From the very bottom of our hearts, we truly want to wish the best to every single customer who supported us along the way.”

The post continued: “You are truly appreciated and we are grateful for everyone we got to meet on this brilliant adventure.”

West Cork Burger Company went on to confirm it is “close indefinitely” but added a glimmer of hope for a future reopening, saying “However, the world is filled with ups and downs and twists and turns”.
