  • BYO corkage

    Went out for a meal tonight and first thing we noticed on the menu was corkage for BYO of $4 per person, can anyone tell me if this is normal or excessive? Haven't been anywhere for quite a while that had corkage so don't know the norm. Always thought it was per table

      Depends where you go but yes its excessive. If its a BYO venue, i dont believe they should charge corkage. If they want the $$$$ get a liquor licence.
      In complete darkness we are all the same. It is only our knowledge and wisdom that seperate us. Dont let your eyes deceive you.

        corkage for BYO
        so prolly not a BYO (Only) establishment.

        And as to $4 per person, $8 a couple, that is now reasonable, don't try taking a bottle to some of the up-market establishments.... it'd be cheaper to buy one of their bottles.

        Remember if corkage is too expensive, keep your bottle with you and buy a house bottle.

            Having previously been a bar manager in a restaurant its normal. A lot of restaurants make most of their $$$ from Alcohol sales. So they have to make their money some how, especially considereing the wages they are having to pay to keep Chefs etc.

              look at their costs. your wine/beer glasses to clean. if its a good place they will be the ones topping up your wine for you. in some ways per person is good....ie u drink lots!

              i think charging corkage is fair enough if the venue is licensed as well. if its not licensed then i think they need to be more reasonable.

                $4 per person is pretty good if its not per person per bottle

                  OK, on this if you are there with a couple and have 1 bottle of wine do you have to pay $4 corkage per person at the table $16 or only $4 per person drinking??

                          If it's a per person charge it depends on how much you're going to get through vs how many people are there I guess. I haven't seen it "per person" but I've seen $16.00 per bottle at a not so upmarket joint here, "cakeage" of $6.00 per serve and a cafe in Chapel street (south yarra) with a "minimum bill" ($25.00 I think it was).

                            i think its getting pretty damn rude if places are gonna start charging more than $4-5 a bottle if theyre unlicensed. licensed plaes it makes sense, as they want you to buy their wine

                              I would just tell them to stick their "corkage" up their arse as all the wine I drink comes in screw top bottles and never leaves our cooler bag . $4 a table I could understand maybe but $4 PP is just highway robbery and there is noway I would pay it pure and simple . I went to one high priced restaurant last year and we had all sorts of dramas with the orders being wrong and the food badly prepared and then they tried to slap a $6 corkage fee on because we had brought a bottle of non alcoholic wine and I let the fuckers know well and truly what I thought and at a loud volume too . Didn't end up paying for corkage or one of the dishes
