Our Wine Bar situated in a 19th century Wine Cellar in Tower Hill.
“It’s the amazingly wide variety of wines sold at very good value prices (i.e. retail) that justifies killing an afternoon in this ancient and atmospheric cellar near Tower Hill” – Hardens.com
There have been a few changes at the Wine Library, obviously we are limiting numbers and spaces to comply social distancing laws but we are still offering our carefully chosen range of wines by the glass and our selection of over 300 wines by the bottle at our shop price plus a £9.50 corkage charge. However we can no longer offer our buffet lunch but fear not we are now offering an edited highlights version, individual platters of French cheeses, pâtés, charcuterie, salad, cornichons, crusty bread and crackers, and now unlike the old buffet this can now be ordered throughout the day a vegetarian option is available with prior notice.
Opening Hours: Mondays 10.30-6pm, Tuesdays-Fridays 10.30-8pm.
NB: We recommend checking evening availability - call +44 (0)207 481 0415 or email email@example.com.
“Having negotiated the infamous spiral staircase you are greeted by a vaulted cellar dominated by a huge ‘wooden bookcase’ stuffed with wines from all corners of the wine world, browse round choosing your bottle or bottles, paying shop prices plus corkage rather than the outrageous prices restaurants charge, help is on hand from the knowledgeable staff. You are taken through Western like swing doors to the neighbouring cellar where casual seating and buffet table awaits, what on first impressions seems a small buffet, you soon realise you are in the company of some serious ripe smelly cheeses, tasty, hearty game pates, hams and the best rillettes this side of the channel and fresh breads and you can go back again and again. Time seems to stand still but the bottles don’t and too soon you are negotiating the swing doors and spiral staircase into the fresh air. You know you will be back as long as you remember how to find your way!”
