Some lovely wine here. Some seem very steeply priced however whatever you pay you will never get a bad glass of wine! Was lovely sitting outside in the sun and enjoying a glass of wine. The bar itself is very cosy with little snug areas - ideal for a date night

A truely hidden gem
A wonderful selection of wines,ports and sherries
The food isn't bad either
Better ambience inside than out
Not recommended for tall people

this "hidden gem" is no longer that, its an over visited tourist trap that has lost the majority of its charm and now resembles an indian train station once you get to 6.10pm during the week (or 3pm on the weekend)

its impossible to get a seat, the wine i must say is very average for the price and the buffet is exposed to everyone walking past so i dread to think the "hygiene" of half the foods there.

We had found this amazing place just randomly and I can swear we have been very lucky! The wine bar location itself is pretty cool, feels like going back in the past. Very low ceilings and lighted by candles. Feels like been inside an old wine cellar. Is self service , so you go at the food desk and at bar for your orders. Don't miss the cheese plate, very special( we tried 3 kinds of English cheeses and they were all great!). With the cheese we had wine by the glass, very good french Beaujolais. The people working there are the best! I can't wait to go back! One of the best food related surprises I had in a long time!

Stopped by for a spot of lunch and was very impressed! Sitting in this place is like stepping back in time to Victorian london. Extensive wine list and superb food! Ended up eating a cheese and bread platter which was very good value and of a high quality. Arrived just after midday on a Saturday and just managed to secure the last table as was very popular. Plenty more seating outside with outdoor heating. Will definitely be stopping by on our next visit to london!
