I found this place googling around the area near my hotel, and decided to try it on a whim. Holy crap it was a good idea, the food was brilliant, service the best, and everything the gorgeous Canadian waiter put us onto was a sure winner. He even recommended we choose another wine as the one we had asked for... More

Really like this place and can recommend to try it on a sunny day, so you can enjoy the terrace. Good food, nice staff all speak English very well. I like the brunch menu the best!

If you are looking for fresh farm to table, mostly American style food, with a great selection of beer at reasonable prices, this is the place to go. The courtyard was great watching the Euro Cup. The staff was very friendly. We can't wait to go back next year!

We booked a brunch on the phone yesterday and today we arrived as per booking time and they said the brunch was over and the kitchen closed. Only a la carte menu was available but the waiter and the owner were very impolite like if they were doing us a favor having us there. Only good available was burger and... More

The outdoor is great ! The thing is that you are asked to make a booking but they can't find you (they've written your name wrong), then yes they find you on the list, give you a table and then you wait. The point is the service was nice but for such a crowd, there are not enough waiting staff... More

Anyway, pancakes were delish....and I was a bit on the clouds from my mimosa and heavenly gentleness of those large large xxl pancakes =) loved the place, though when... More

It is the second time that we come to Fork & Bottle on Saturday evening. The place is cozy, there are couples and families and the food is good. If you feel for English food it is the place to be. We enjoyed burgers, spare ribs, and fish&chips. All was good. We had beer the first time and when we... More

The food at Fork and Bottle is quite good; burgers seem popular. I had the lamb burger which was excellent. My son had a burger and my husband had a salad. All good. Service was friendly but inattentive, which was fine. All in all an enjoyable place to go for brunch or lunch.
