user reviews of Corney and Barrow, City of London

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Have to agree - yes it's an upmarket wine bar as part of a chain.
It only serves bottled beers so no good for real alers. My companion and I took a bottle of wine, which was good and an expected price rather than reasonable price. The inside is modern and fairly pleasant with large bar and tables dotted around and stunning view of St Paulís. Almost a tourist magnet then and full of jumped up suit types and their split skirt chicks who fall into two categories. Late twenties and upwards who are mildly acceptable but get drunk after 9.0'clock and act like precks. Younger twenties and under who should be exterminated by a Davros and his team on a shoot on sight policy with the dear old doctors around the corner at the real pub on St. Martins where Sheakespear and Oscar Wilde used to supp drinking decent gear. I got took on by one of the strumpet bar maids who can't read the wine price list and tried several times to charge me a few quid more than was advertised. On pointing out her obvious mistake of £2.02 over priced her parents entered the establishment and handed her over to me as my lifelong concubine and bequethed their next born to me or decent cabbages from their garden patch. Fair swap I thought but she needs to brush up on her Russian language skills.

Why does this have 8 out of 10? If I was looking for a beer in the evening this is the last place I would go. No beer on tap, and a selection of expensive bottles of standard lager. Also, no real ale!

It should get 8 out of 10 if the website was called "Wine in the evening with work". What is this website coming to? Could it be only 1 person has rated this bar and they happen to work there?

I will rate it zero just to adjust the 8 out of 10 rating downwards. I suggest everyone else does the same. Lets see where we are in a year. 3/2/11

This bar is excellent for business lunches and also after work drinks. Excellent location with friendly and helpful bar staff.

If you love your wine, this is definitely the place to go, good selection.

Bloody awful place. Disinterested bar staff (bar one nice guy) who were more interested in chatting amongst themselves behind the bar than serving over-priced beverages to the clientele. The 'manager' is a miserable looking chap who took it upon himself to move the outdoor furniture - whilst people were sitting on it...
Lots of suits if you like that type of thing; if you can't deal with inane self-interested chatter then stay well clear.
Great location on the plus side - Paternoster Square is a brilliant location next to St Paul's.

Upmarket wine bar chain, which as you would expect only serves bottled beers. My companion and I stuck to the wine, which I have to say, was good and a reasonable price given the place we were in. Had a platter of mixed continental meats, which although nice was a little small for the price.
The inside is pleasant enough, with large U shaped bar with tables dotted around, (although, given this is place is giving the impression of being quite upmarket I thought two large tvís out of place.)
The outside area is nice enough, with enough tables, umbrellaís and heaters to keep everyone happy, and to be honest the biggest reason I would go back, that is the rather stunning view of St Paulís Dome lit up at night.
