On the Pigs Back Douglas - Deli

Home / Place / Pigs Back Douglas Deli


Unit 26
St Patrick's Mill


On The Pig’s Back has been an essential ingredient of the English Market for years. The place would be lost without Isabelle’s Sheridan’s epicentre stall, packed with an array of local and French cheeses, charcuterie, special homemade pates cooked meats featuring wonderful artisan produce from both Ireland and France. The amount of produce being created by Isabelle and her team on site at the market has long exceeded the tiny galley kitchen space to the rear of the serving counter.  A move was absolutely essential to increase capacity and extend the range of home made goodies always on offer. Ever a woman of vision, Isabelle found her ideal spot in the heart of an industrial and retail estate next to Douglas Village Shopping Centre, just off the South Ring Road in Cork.  You wouldn’t think the location could quite handle a smart sassy outlet like this in its midst. But handle it most certainly does – with bells on!  On The Pig’s Back Café and Deli is the highlight of the area – a diamond in the rough,  the shiny needle in the culinary haystack we all hope to come across once in a while. 

The deli is well stocked with home cooked meats, artisan charcuterie, cheeses and house salads. Fresh breads come daily from Ryan's Arbutus breads.  A chill cabinet holds a host of Cork produced artisan specialities, including smoked salmon, cheeses and charcuterie. Find Isabel's own pates to take home,   A range of oils, dressings and wines line the walls. Shop till you drop here - then sit down and enjoy a snack and coffee Sheridan style in the cafe which is part of this quirkily designed shop.
