Harden's says

The second outpost of a wine-focused bar and restaurant opens in an old journo drinking den off Fleet Street. Set in the vaults of St Bride’s Church the wine bar and shop will boast a 200-seater bar, private dining room and a menu of wine-friendly small plates. The original opened in Battersea in last year.

“An amazing choice of wines” is served by “lovely staff, who are passionate and knowledgeable about the list” at these “proper wine bars”, whose liquid offering is “complemented by a very good food menu” of “well-made” dishes (small plates, plus cheese and charcuterie). The Battersea original is still the branch attracting most feedback, although the chain is spreading eastwards, and its operation in the crypt of St Bride’s Church and newer Liverpool Street branch are “very competent”: next stop is an opening in Canary Wharf.

“A lovely venue in an old crypt of Fleet Street” (under St Bride’s, the journalists’ church), hosts this new bar/restaurant (which also has an older Battersea sibling). “There’s good food to be had here, but it’s not really the point – it’s the wonderfully diverse and well-priced wine list that will keep you coming back”.
