WOWWW WHAT A PLACE!!! The caves are so fab! The wine is incredible and the food bar of meats, wide variety of cheeses, crusty bread and a few hot nibbles is perfect. We sat outside in the middle if Jan under the heater and it was so fun!! Got there at 6 on a Thursday and it was rammed - no way to sit inside. Now that I've seen the incredible atmosphere inside I am desperate to get it - I...more

I love this place. I love it despite not being able to sit inside 80% of the times I go.

Ambience: 5 stars. Funky, dark, old cavern, lively crowd. Amazingly ambience including the low ceilings in the back of the "cave".

Wines: Good, not great. Some large(r) wineries (e.g. Fat Bastard, Peter Lehmann, etc). Their sweet wines are good to great; lots of older vintage ports. Your mileage may vary.

Great place for ambiance, hang out with friends (not necessarily meet new ones)....more

I love everything about this place.

The atmosphere is great. the outdoor seating is both cozy and in the action.

There are plenty of wine choices, the cheese and charcuterie choices are excellent as well.

The location is very prime, only few steps away from the tube station.

I love coming here and definitely will recommend it to everyone!

Dubbed as London's oldest wine bar, the place was packed but we managed to find a little corner to ourselves.

My husband and I split a bottle of high ABV dry sherry (around 18 percent) for about 25 pounds. The bartender seemed a bit rude/impatient with our questions about what to choose, but we got over that because we loved the buzzy atmosphere and the ambiance of sitting in a candle-lit...more
