Summary

Just about everyone in London has supped a glass of vino at one time or another at this “one-of-a-kind” ancient wine bar, by Embankment tube; the food – cheese, cold cuts, hot dishes, salads – is “nothing special”, but the cave-like interior is “amazing”, and it has one of the West End’s nicest (and biggest) outdoor terraces.

Summary

“Get a seat in the cave – it’s about as interesting a place to get drunk as there is!”; by Embankment tube, this cellar wine bar, which also boasts a huge terrace, is a “fun” spot, with an “excellent and varied” wine list; “you don’t really go for the food”.

Summary

“Mad busy”, for a reason!; this cellar wine bar, by Embankment tube, has a wonderfully “idiosyncratic” style, plus an “impressive” list that’s “a must for wine lovers” (and, in summer, one of central London’s largest terraces); the food is incidental.
