Planet of the Grapes, Bow Lane, is a restaurant, wine bar and fine wine merchant all rolled into one. We have a range of over 300 wines, several of which are served by the glass. Our menu, which changes daily, is a delicious mix of modern British and European styles, with the option of selecting nibbles and tapas dishes to a full three course meal. We are proud to offer a flat corkage fee of just £10 to any of our bottles of wine that you choose to enjoy in our restaurant, be it our house white or a top Bordeaux! We also offer an excellent range of fine cigars - perfect for enjoying outside our bar with a little glass of something. We also have a bar in Leadenhall Market as well as a shop on New Oxford Street. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

We had the following and i would recommend them all without hesitation. looking forward to trying...more
Planet Of The Grapes: I heart you for your name. You have won me over. Linguistic love lasts a lifetime. (You are better than Lots Road: http://www.yelp.co.uk/biz/lots-road-pub-and-dining-room-london#hrid:TnJUdyUO-RiPLvBekGoReQ.)
