A friendly, English-style gastropub serving craft beers and a cracking food menu.
With its gastropub feel and location in a park by the river Sihl, the Fork & Bottle has become somewhat of an expat hub in Zurich for English speakers. And this is by no means a bad thing. The convivial atmosphere and friendly, efficient staff (many of them native Brits themselves) make for a splendid meal, whether it's Sunday brunch (try the eggs Benedict if you can resist the full English!) or a bang-up pub meal from the seasonal menu at other times. Top it off with craft beer or a cocktail and, if you've got room left, the English-style cakes and pastries on offer are also excellent.
Fork & Bottle is a popular spot for celebrations and parties so be sure to book ahead on weekends. The pub also hosts a range of events such as movie mornings for kids and mothers-group meet-ups. For those with families, this spot is a godsend, with a large, dedicated kids' playroom upstairs chock full of toys, as well as farm animals in a paddock across the way. Because it's such a kid-friendly venue, it's probably not the spot for a romantic tryst (unless it's way after bedtime!).
