Anyone know of any good bring your own bottle restaurants in our esteemed area? Waterloo-ish would be good.

The only place I know of, and a cafe, rather than restaurant - is in Lower Marsh - by day a traditional english breakfast type of cafe and by night they serve (delicious and excellent value for money - i.e. very inexpensive) Thai food. It is a bring your own bottle and it is very popular - get there early.

Unfortunately the name of it escapes me at the moment - heading west it's on the left approx 1/3 of the way down Lower Marsh.

If anyone knows of any byob restaurants though I'd be interested to know about them too.

You're thinking of Marie's Cafe in Lower Marsh

This site has 2 in our area - search the page for SE1. There is some good advice at the top of the page.

La Fermata is supposed to be BYOB too.

Perhaps James could mark BYOB places, like he marks ones with WiFi?

Cafe Nawaz on Snowfields.

I went to Cafe Nawaz last night. It was excellent, very friendly staff and always good food. Being able to BYO always helps keep the price down too, which is one of the reasons I keep going back.

Agree 100%. Prices very fair, and you can choose to take a few beers or a bottle of something that might really complement the food (I had a good experience with a Gruner Veltliner). The service can occasionally be a bit unfocused, but they're nice people. The takeaway is good, too. No connection etc.
