* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“There’s no better place to try South African wine – from cheap ’n’ cheerful to exceptional vintages” – than at this duo of SA-owned City wine bars, with walk-in cellars for your deliberation. The Saffa-inspired food is “fairly hearty” (steaks are a good bet), with a shout-out to the “brilliant cheese room” in each venue.

“An eclectic and fascinating cellar, especially the South African options” (perhaps “the best selection of Saffa vintages in town”) “scores alpha plus plus for the wines” at this very popular and “noisy” wine bar duo, and “amazingly knowledgeable and helpful staff” help with your deliberations. Though not the point, “the food is pretty good, too” with steak the top choice.

A “fantastic range of mainly South African vintages” helps provide the justification for consuming the “perfectly cooked steaks” at this wine bar duo with branches in Farringdon and Bankside. Top Tip – don’t miss the ‘Cheese Room Experience’.
