Our beliefs are simple - in a world full of so much terrific food and wine, why settle for a slab of quiche and a glass of boring plonk? Our food is innovative, fresh and tasty... and available at all hours. The wine list speaks for itself - "Legendary for its iconoclastic notes. It doesn"t necessarily tell you what the wine tastes like - you have to make your mind up. It's there to provoke interest", says Harpers, the wine trade magazine. As Barossa wine making supremo John Glaetzer puts it so succinctly, "Don, this is not just a wine list - it's a book". And a readable one at that!

    Bad smell of toilets and drains - pleased we weren’t eating there. Shame as lovely little quaint place and food looked great

    Our return visit, after some time, didn’t quite live up to expectations. The tables were quite cramped and ours was at the link between the two rooms, so always busy. My cod was beautifully cooked, but the risotto could have been richer. The Cafe Gourmand sharing desserts were generous, but very sweet flavours.

    Lovely place, very busy pre theatre. We got given a table that was crammed under the stairs. Wine great. The food is hugely overpriced. Our bill for x2 wines, x2 small plates and one salad was £75. One of the small plates was literally cut up pitta and humus. I went for nostalgia and pre theatre but prob wouldn’t rush back.

    Simply fab on every level…The staff, the food, the wine, and of course the cheese! Been three times now, and so looking forward to the next.

    Quick pre theatre meal; food much better than last time - delicious pork belly with slaw, spring salad and even their old stalwart the duck (or chicken liver pate) was much better than the last time and even better they have gotten rid of their diabolical habit of charging for extra cornichons. An old style wine bar which is pretty unique today and thoroughly recommendable

    Cork and Bottle was an absolute treat! It wasn't just the simple and delicious menu that was carefully thought out to provide a hearty base for a night of wine indulgence, but the atmosphere and ambience just yelled "home with friends at the rum shop" (I'm from Barbados and our rum shops are.fixture in our social scene). I never get tired of this place.

    Great experience at the Cork and Bottle for the Californian wine tasting. Food and wine choices were good quality with the right amount of information about the wines.

    A pleasure to eat there away from the bustle near busy part of town. Food was good and staff very friendly and helpful. Spent a very pleasant lunch there 😊
