Korks Wine Bar is something of an institution in the heart of the Leeds suburb of Otley and wears its culinary heritage as an understated badge of honour. Head Chef Ashley Dibbs has a healthy appetite for creating food that is both exciting and familiar, celebrating fresh local produce wherever possible. The building itself is grade II-listed but you’d be hard pressed to find any boasting down on Bondgate, it’s not the Yorkshire way. Instead they serve up varied cuisine with an international edge, a firm handshake and a welcoming atmosphere as standard. They also serve up regular live music, making it easy to spend the whole evening there.
Situated on Bondgate in the suburb of Otley, Korks Wine Bar is part of the new breed of Yorkshire restaurant that continues to grow and grow in God’s Own County. Their cuisine is international, as one would expect from a multi-cultural city such as Leeds. You can also expect to see chicken tikka, bangers & mash and almost everything in between, but with an emphasis on making the most of what Yorkshire has to offer.
What Yorkshire has to offer of course, is exceptional ingredients and Korks are keen on using local suppliers wherever possible. With bread from Bondgate just a few doors down, beef from Rawdon, cheese from Harrogate and seafood from the North Sea coast. Taking the finest in seasonal and local products and turning them into diverse, international dishes is no easy task and few do it well. The queues at Korks Wine Bar in Otley prove that, when done well, the market is there… Make sure you don’t miss out by booking your table now.
Super food helpful friendly staff great atmosphere and the best selection of wine for miles around. We'll miss you, Korks. Best of luck to everyone.
The food was really good even though people knew it was closing down
High quality dishes that combine classic and nouvelle at a very reasonable price that most burger joints couldn't match. Great wines with even the house white and red being top notch. Get in there before they close on 31 January!
