Our Wine Bar

COVID-19 Notice

Our online shop continues to trade as normal, with allowances for our courier’s workload.

As a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic we regret that our wine shop in Trinity Square is only open on a part time basis, subject to social distancing. Please drop us a line via the contact us page prior to coming in to check our opening times, or by emailing info@winelibrary.co.uk.

Our wine bar remains closed though we are working on ways we will be able to continue this operation under the restrictions. We will obviously keep everyone informed of any changes via our newsletters. Thank you for your understanding and support.

 

 

“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

 

Choose your wine from our 19thcentury cellar wine shop, paying retail price plus a £9.50 corkage charge, with an interesting range by the glass too; a great opportunity to try from our 300-plus range of carefully chosen wines from all corners of the wine world.

 

Our wines can be accompanied by a buffet lunch 11:30am - 3:00pm Monday - Friday, or afterwards a selection of cheese till close. We are now open on Saturdays from 11.00am - 5:00pm when cheese and pâté platters are available all day.

 

We recommend checking evening availability - call +44 (0)207 481 0415 or email info@winelibrary.co.uk.

 

Our Buffet lunch - Inspired by a typical cellar visit to growers in France where, after tasting, you are offered local cheeses and a hunk of pâté served with a baguette on an up-turned barrel.

 

 We source the finest farm house cheeses from Philippe Olivier in Boulogne, possibly one of the best cheese shops on the Planet! Game terrines, pâtés, rillettes and saucissons from the Loire Valley; award winning hams from Dorset and organic vegetarian quiches from Devon; along with some homemade seafood and vegetarian pates served with, salad, crusty bread and biscuits.

The Wine Library Experience by an old hand:

“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!”
