Summary

This “natural wine bar with excellent food” has become a “must-eat fixture” for London foodies, where chef Steve WIlliams produces a daily chalked-up menu of “incredible” small plates, to be consumed in the no-frills surroundings of a Victorian railway arch on the lines into London Bridge station, which houses the Gergovie biodynamic wine import business. There are “interesting gems” on the wine list, “but don’t try to navigate on your own – explain to the sommelier what style you’re looking for and take the advice”. As for the food: “genuinely the most impressive ‘sausage roll’ I’ve had in my life – I was truly in heaven, and had to have two”.

Summary

“The cooks work miracles in a tiny kitchen” tucked under the railway arches at this wine warehouse in one of Southwark’s foodiest of enclaves near London Bridge. Chef Steve Williams uses “imaginative combinations of seasonal ingredients” in the daily menu he chalks up on a blackboard. Ironically, “while certainly interesting, the natural wines are arguably the least enjoyable aspect of the offer” (they can be “very challenging!”).
