Orso In The Community

As a local, independently owned restaurant group, we understand the value of community. We’ve partnered and supported a number of community groups, individuals and others.

In addition to the list below we support many local and national charities with spot prizes. If you would like to be considered for our monthly spot prize, please write to [email address - enable javascript to view] and we’ll put you in the monthly draw. If you’ve been successful in the draw, we will contact you directly. Please understand that although we consider every request to be worthy, we cannot promise to reply to every request as we are currently receiving approximately 3 requests every single day.

Colleague Wellbeing

Colleague Wellbeing 

Creating a business that delivered a very positive colleague experience was at the top of the agenda for us, when in 2007, we first opened the doors of Market Lane restaurant in Cork city centre, as was the customer experience we were determined to create.

Grown.ie

Grown.ie 

Grown.ie, an Irish company from whom we have begun to purchase uniforms for our restaurants. Grown only use fabrics and processes which are kind to the environment and plant a tree for each garment that is purchased. The fact that they are fire fighting surfers simply seals the deal.
