I'll start with the good: 2 of my 3 courses were tasty, and once the initial hit on the bar was done, service was quick and staff were very friendly. My reason for only 3 stars is here: We were told to be there from 7, but it was the day of multiple tube strikes, so we left loads of time and so arrived at 18:45. We weren't allowed in until 19:02, which, if that's their opening time, then that's just how it is...however, when we eventually got in after quite a journey and waiting outside (so quite thirsty), the bar then couldn't serve (the till needed the supervisor to open it) until 19:15. In isolation, either of these would've been fine. Once food started, service was quick and efficient, for the starter and main, and my wife's and my dishes were delicious. For dessert however my wife ordered a cheesecake, which was still frozen in the middle. We shared it, as I had ordered the chocolate tart which would hopefully be better. However the staff had messed up the delivery and the only dessert left was another semi frozen cheesecake. To my mind, with a party of such size (30) and if there is potential of error in delivery, then they should have a few buffers per course, but that wasn't the case. If the cheesecake had been nice, I also might not have minded, but it wasn't. As always, I far prefer giving good reviews to bad, but this was my experience.

I am so obsessed with this place. I almost didn't want to review because I just wanted it all to myself 😅 for the busy Bank location and extortionate prices of London. Core provides high-quality at a very affordable price with fantastic service. Not only does this bar sell delicious food, but there's a variety of alcohol. Happy hour is Tuesday to Thursday and basically a club at the weekend? I didn't get any cocktails because I got a bottle of wine so I can't speak on that but I'm bringing anyone I can here!

Good location but the place is so small and tight. I believe they offer a capacity more than it actually takes. Probably they can provide more air conditioning or allow less people to get in. Be careful with your drinks tho, never leave anything on the table unwatched.

I had a 30th birthday here the weekend just past, the staff were amazing and the manger really accommodating to all the needs of the party. Would highly recommend having an event here to anyone that’s considering it!
