Located in King City, The Cork & Plough is a purveyor of fine American cuisine utilizing products from our own back yard.


The Cork & Plough opened in February 2015 and is located on Broadway St. in King City's Town Square. Seattle-native Chef Travis Childers brings a menu filled with quality interpretations of classic dishes as well as a few more daring ventures into modern American cuisine, all of which are built around the seasonal products of California's central coast.

The wine menu, curated by Anna Childers, also focuses on locally sourced products. Every wine on the menu can be ordered either as a taste, a glass, or a bottle, and our friendly and knowledgeable staff can expertly guide you to wines that best suit your palette. We also offer flights, making The Cork & Plough the best restaurant in the area to sample all the terrific wines from our local vines.

Behind the bar you find a wide selection of whiskey, citrus juiced fresh to order, flavored syrups and grenadine made from scratch, as well as infused liquors and homemade bitters being expertly combined by our passionate bartenders to create amazing craft cocktails.
