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

With its charcuterie, gutsy small plates, cheese and wacky vintages, this venture from Les Caves de Pyrène (est 2011) helped inspire the current vogue for low intervention wine bars in the capital. Feedback is scarce nowadays, but still suggests it’s worth a try if you’re in the vicinity of Battersea Rise.

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

This rustic French spot on Battersea Rise is operated by the pioneer importer of organic and biodynamic wines, Les Caves de Pyrène, and, although its mix of small plates and offbeat vintages no longer seems as original as once it did, it’s consistently well-rated.

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

A “consistently imaginative menu” of rustic French plates, both small and large, combines with a global list of organic and biodynamic wines at this “fabulous local” on Battersea Rise. It is part of the Terroirs group operated by natural wine pioneer Les Caves de Pyrène, which has lost some of its rarity value now that so many have followed its lead.

“Easy-yet-delicious French bistro” option, offering the combination of gutsy Gallic small plates and an interesting wine list that’s become the hallmark of outlets run by natural and organic wine pioneer Les Caves de Pyrène.

"Consistent French cooking without frills in this staple neighbourhood wine bar, on this occasion betrayed by a poor natural wine, allegedly a Pinot/Gamay blend."
