Named after the year Fortnum’s was founded, this basement perch below the famous food halls is perfect for “trying wines from slightly off the beaten track” that you’ve dug up in the adjacent F&M wine department (for a £15 corkage charge). There’s a “limited menu” for food, but it’s “a useful stop-off for a light meal with good vino”.
Below the famous food halls, a bar with “reliable” snacks, but which “is really all about the wine” – “a great range of flights”, plus the chance to “drink anything from their impressive adjacent wine shop” (with £15 corkage). “Service has dropped off” this year however, and prices seem increasingly “astronomical”.
“Take the wine flight”, if you visit the famous grocer’s basement wine bar, where you can “sample a huge variety of very good wines” – their whole list is available, plus £10 corkage; the tapas-style platters also make it a decent “snack lunch” option.
