Forty wines by the glass, and 150 by the bottle are the main ‘gourmet’ attraction at this modern wine bar, near Notting Hill Gate (which, over the years, has added siblings in Fulham and Brackenbury Village). To accompany the liquid refreshment, there’s substantial fare like steaks and seared fish, or you can stick to the “great bar platters”.

Owner's description

We love wine, and all that’s enjoyable around wine: good food, good friends, good conversation.

 We take particular pride in our selection of 150 bins, and in presenting you with an extensive range of 40 wines by the glass. We encourage you to sample those armed with a pre-paid card, with or without help from our wine specialists. We also stock a cracking selection of sparkling and sweet wines, beers and spirits. Food is there to make the wines even more enjoyable! Try some British cheeses or Spanish meats with your choice of wine, or go along with the wine matches on our main menu. We have lunchtime specials at £10 for a main course and a coffee, and a brunch menu at weekends.

 We also hold regular wine classes to help you find your way around. And if you like our wines, they are all available at take-out prices for home consumption.
