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!

    The Cork and Bottle is an absolute gem in the hectic world of Leicester Square. The service, the wine and the food are excellent.

    Lovely place, came as saw reviews from other people and we were not disappointed! Very quirky, friendly, helpful staff, lovely food and wine. Only criticism was not much choice on menu as I am gluten and dairy intolerant, but what I could have was lovely

    Great find whilst in London for the weekend. Charcuterie board to start, nice as it was it was bread and meat no crackers or cheese. Lovely main course risotto and the famous pie. Enjoyed the summer offer wine. Liked the atmosphere and the fact it’s ’underground‘

    A rather undistinguished frontage just along the road from Leicester Square welcomes you to this labyrinthine basement wine bar. Custom was sparse on a Friday lunchtime but a more lively crowd appeared towards the evening. A good range of nibbles and sharing platters is on offer together with a very comprehensive wine list. Everything served to us by a delightful young waitress.

    We loved the quirkiness of this wine bar and would definitely go back We thought the quantity in the cheese selection was a bit small We would take time to check the menu and the various wines on offer next time as we didn’t really pay enough attention to it this time Overall it was a pleasant experience and much nicer than a pub
