This ancient cellar near Tower Hill has a “brilliant selection of wines at retail prices”, accompanied by charcuterie and cheeses – “basically drinks-party food, but none the worse for that”. With its “highly knowledgeable staff”, it’s a great place for oenophiles to while away an hour or two (if not in huge comfort, given the not-particularly-comfortable seating).

“It’s the amazingly wide variety of wines sold at very good value prices” (i.e. retail) that justifies killing an afternoon in this ancient and atmospheric cellar near Tower Hill – the food, is of “good quality” but of low ambition (“pâtés, quiches, bread rolls, etc”). “If only the seats were more comfortable, I would come more often!”

“A huge choice of wines with only a modest corkage charge” is the irresistible draw to this ancient cellar bar near Tower Hill. “The food is casual party fare – pâtés, breads, cheeses, all very fresh”. “Only go if you’re not intending to do much work for the rest of the day.”
