Fab wine and cheese. Can't wait to return. Thank you.
So, after booking the wrong one the guys simply sorted it all out no drama, no fuss 👌
Very knowledgeable about there food and wine etc 👍 second visit and will be back again and again 🍾 🧀
Wonderful and helpful staff! A great night with amazing wine and a delish Black Bomber cheese!
Staff couldn’t do enough for us. Helpful, friendly, made suggestions, checked on us to make sure we wanted for nothing. Lovely atmosphere and the food was great.
As ever, great wines and beer, and the mixed board was spot on. Even managed to accommodate us to a larger table when we bumped into some friends. Definitely recommended for a quiet few drinks or as somewhere to start the night
Lovely time thank you
Great table in the window
Good service - perfect night!
very good. Turned up again the next day for a post dinner drink. Equally good. Going to be a favorite.
Always great staff lovely vino and nice customers
This is a very cozy wine bar / cheese shop with great ladies that serve you always with a smile
On arrival we were a little early but staff were very friendly and accommodating. Our waitress was Helen and she was very helpful with all questions asked. We would definitely go back and recommend it to family and friends. Thoroughly enjoyed!!
Love this place great for date night or meet up with friends.
Brilliant as always!
Wonderful atmosphere to get together with friends
Really disappointed with our experiences at the Bishop's Cave. This used to be a great place pre-pandemic with great customer service, staff who knew about the wines and who could advise. Now that has been replaced with a QR code to scan and choose for the menu resulting in Customer Service levels of a MacDonalds than a up market wine bar. It's still a nice environment but next time I'll go to the local pub where I know I'll get better Customer Service.
We have this place a second go after going there the first time and being served out of date beer on our last visit. It’s safe to say we won’t be back!
Our table was booked at 7pm. We ordered food and drinks and were having a lovely, when after an less than hour a waitress comes up to us with our bill and tells us that the next table is in and we need to pay! I couldn’t believe it. We hadn’t even finished our food and I had only just ordered a glass of wine. This all certainly ruined what should have been a lovely night celebrating our anniversary!
Love this place. Such a cosy place and the staff are friendly yet super knowledgeable. The food is always great and the wine variety is amazing.
Enjoyable mixed board of cheeses and cured meats. Good selection of wine. Lovely atmosphere.
We had a lovely evening in this warm and inviting bar. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and were able to offer informed recommendations. We loved the mixed plate and the choice of cheeses was amazing. Can't wait to go back!
The Bishop’s Cave is a favourite venue of ours; fabulous wine and craft beers, lovely knowledgeable staff. The atmosphere is always great. The Bishop’s Cave is a gem and we will continue to visit for many years 💜
We booked ahead and were using a voucher that had been given to us as a present. When we arrived, both the owner and the female staff member were smiling, friendly and chatty (without being at all obtrusive). They were attentive in their service and knowledgeable about the menu items.
Although everything was slightly more expensive than I would usually like to pay, all the food and drink was of exceptional quality and had clearly been carefully sourced. The problem is really more with my budget than the pricing at The Bishop’s Cave!
We had a really enjoyable afternoon and would not hesitate to return or to recommend the venue to others.
It’s great that small independent businesses like this exist in Stortford and we wish them all the best in the future. We look forward to eating and drinking with you again!
Cheese, meats, wine and craft beer. Top service, reasonable prices, great ambience. Make sure you book as it’s always busy which is another good sign.
Our favourite little hideaway....
We had a excellent evening at the Bishops cave. Good food and wine and a nice atmosphere.
Food portions had gone down in size from previous visits.
But over all a very nice evening!!
Great cocktails, great choice of cheese! Perfect place to start your night out!
Great food and excellent customer service. Thank you
Great food and great staff
Our favourite place to stop for lunch when just the two of us
We didn’t eat. Wine was lovely! Would go again. Very nice.
Fab evening with friends at The Cave. Delicious cheeses, meats, scotch egg and chilli sausage roll!
The variety of wines were amazing also.
We also thoroughly enjoyed the quiz night ~ hadn’t known one was one!!
Will return next month for the same again!!!
Our favourite place to spend a few hours; great wine & craft beer selection. Lovely polite and knowledgeable staff.
Don’t go though as you’ll make it harder for me to book a table 🤣
Had the charcuterie board and a bottle of very nice red. Service was excellent in pleasant surroundings
Just live Bishops Cave. Great food, service & value!
Best place to be in Bishop’s Stortford
Brilliant as always.
Unfortunately I can’t provide a great review here, it was all just a bit disappointing! We were shown to a second room - a back area which was nothing like the front area which initially enticed us to make the reservation. The back room was dark and small and I felt the tables were too close together. We asked to be moved but they said they were fully booked and couldn’t move us. The service was average it wasn’t clear how to view the menu (from the QR code) they didn’t have the beer we asked for they then didn’t have half of the cheeses on the menu! So after paying £56 for two platters and a couple of drinks we left! Honestly it was nothing I couldn’t have served up better at home for a fraction of the cost! A real shame!
Fab food, drink, staff and atmosphere, would highly recommend especially to those who know what good wine and cheese taste like!
Excellent service as knowledgeable as usual, Great selection of cheeses and wine
Great evening out for good cheese and wine.
Never disappoints. I wish however the tables downstairs were further apart as there is very little ventilation and we are in COVID times.
