Summary

This stalwart wine bar run by the eponymous gin empire is a “good all-rounder that never disappoints” – even if, paradoxically, the food is “not totally consistent”; “great wine list” from the owners’ vineyards.

Summary

“Genuinely friendly”, “thoughtful” staff add to the charm of this wine bar (named for the gin dynasty which owns it, and with wines from their own vineyards). The setting is a little “squashed-in”, but it wins uniform praise for its “surprisingly good” (if “not entirely consistent”) cooking.

Summary

“Varied wine from their own vineyard” and a “cosy” style add to the appeal of this “personal” venture, named after the gin dynasty which owns it; reports aren’t entirely consistent, but it is mainly praised for “competent food at a not unreasonable price”.

"A lovely little room with very attentive service but the initial look at the menu wasn't overwhelming - slightly overcomplicated and fussy dishes. However, the food did deliver above expectations and so we were very pleasantly surprised. Not a bad little spot."
