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

“The wine list’s brilliant” at these modern-industrial bars: “a huge range” that’s “regularly added to, with some unusual vintages”, “plenty at affordable prices” and “excellent options by the glass”. And this “wine focus attracts a more interesting crowd than some other chains”, all making the group “the perfect standby any night of the week”. “All branches are recommended”, with the one that’s super-handy for King’s Cross perhaps the most popular (though, being “always busy”, it can seem “squashed and hurried”, and booking is advisable). Perhaps the “food’s a bit average”, but practically all feedback actually focuses on its success as a “tasty” complement to the vino. Top Tip – “even better on a Sunday or Monday, when the wine’s sold close to retail price”.

“No surprise that the focus is on the wine”“a huge and varied list, with loads of wines by the glass” and “many you’ve never heard of, to challenge your taste buds” – at these “modern/industrial” bars, of which the King’s Cross and new Bloomberg branches attract most comment (Soho closed this year). “Don’t forget the food though”; “it may play second fiddle” but is “simple and satisfying”.

Considering that the “simple” fare is “incidental” to the “terrific selection of wines at reasonable prices”, the cooking is “surprisingly good” and “reasonably priced” at these “bustling” and extremely popular modern watering holes.

“One of the best and most unusual wine selections in London” underpins the high popularity of these “appealing” modern haunts (whose “smart” King’s Cross branch attracts most mention). The “unfussy” food? – “nothing too thrilling, but competent”.
