About

CORA is a contemporary bake house, dining room and wine cellar based in Boston Spa by chef Elizabeth Cottam.

 

We serve breakfast, lunch, afternoon and evening tasting experiences alongside a selection of ever changing speciality cakes, pastries and wines. Everything can be enjoyed in our small dining room or can be boxed and wrapped to be enjoyed in your own homes.

 

We’re very proud to offer a comprehensive wine, Champagne and dessert wine selection and also offer a collection of food and day-friendly cocktails. All of our tasting experiences can be enjoyed alongside a carefully selected drink pairing.

Reservations can be made for tasting and a la carte dining. We also hold a small selection of walk in on the day tables for a la carte dining. Tasting menus must be pre booked.

Reservations

Thursday – 9.30 – 5pm 

Friday – 9.30 – 10pm

Saturday – 9.30-10pm 

Sunday 9.30 – 3pm

 

Online reservations are essential for our tasting experiences, but we always hold a number of tables for walk-ins on the day to dine from our a la carte menu. Reservations are confirmed with a non-refundable deposit. We are not able to accommodate infants or babies within the restaurant. Due to the fixed tasting menu format we find that we are more suitable to children aged 10 years or over.

 

We are currently unable to accommodate any specific dietary preferences and allergies other than vegetarian although information about the allergen content of all of our products can be viewed on our menus.
