The attractively “louche and convivial atmosphere” of this Shepherd’s Bush veteran, opposite and long pre-dating Westfield shopping centre, is redolent of the 1970s, when the “great little wine bar” was opened by chef Allegra McEvedy’s mother. Now co-owned by McEvedy, whose “interesting short seasonal menu” is available in the bar and upstairs restaurant.

This “very buzzy wine bar and bistro” is a “breath of fresh air” in Shepherd’s Bush, with “clever, original and inexpensive food” by “the amazing Allegra (McEvedy), who is constantly popping out from the kitchen to check all is well with the world”. A refuge from the nearby Westfield shopping centre, it was set up by McEvedy’s mother in 1978, and she has retained the charming interior. There’s a “huge range of wines from Greece to Morocco, with very strong French selection”.

“Enhanced rather than revolutionised, so it continues to feel like an old local favourite” – this veteran Shepherds Bush wine bar (once the haunt of BBC types from the former TV Centre nearby) has been taken over and spruced up by Allegra McEvedy (whose mother opened it in 1978) leaving it “less scruffy, while maintaining its informality”. There’s “not a huge menu” but the food is “vastly improved” and there’s “interesting wine” too.

A perfect escape from the nearby Westfield shopping centre – this “traditional wine bar” is the antithesis of the shiny retail complex opposite, and provides a “good, descriptive list”, “knowledgeable service and great cheeses”, plus some light, “home-cooked” dishes.
