corkage (GB)

In some restaurants or pubs, it is permitted under certain circumstances to consume wine bottles that you have brought with you (usually at larger, closed events). For this purpose, a so-called corkage fee (in Austria also stubble money) is charged per bottle or cork, the amount of which varies considerably (usually one third of the value). In New Zealand and Australia there are special restaurants called BYO (Bring Your Own) where this is common.
