The legendary Cork and Bottle wine bar in London’s Leicester Square was founded by the equally legendary Don Hewitson back in 1971. Don’s reputation allowed some of the best growers to invite him in and give him access to some of the world’s most treasured wines – the type of wines that usually only find their way to a few lucky locals. Great wine deserves great food. At Cork & Bottle our philosophy is simple ingredients – freshly prepared. Expect everything from small plates to sharing platters and large plates – and don’t forget to try our favourites, such as the ham and cheese pie. We’ve sold over 900,000 portions since 1978!
