An absolutely superb bar for sure but the one drawback is that it's only marginally less busy than the Black Hole of Calcutta. Right up until 11pm on a weekday night it was packed to the rafters with punters enjoying a superb range of wines and ports as well as the odd delectable cheese plate one - an Italian variant included a delicious dolcelatte. Not quite quintessentially Brittish because little of the food or drink is from these isles, but an institution nevertheless.

I discovered this place when in the army 40 years ago. Now live away but no trip to London is complete without a return for a bottle (or 2). Love the place. Great place to impress the girlfriend! :-)

As a G&V man I rave about this place. An immediate recommendation to any non Londoner to go here to see a spot which has been going since the 1890s so it must be doing something right.

I love the fact that there is a model of a Spitfire, covered in dust, hanging from the ceiling. There is a delightul sign on the wall making it clear it is a wine bar so there is a limit to what you can ask for. Go for what is in the barrels behind the bar - Port and Madeira. One of the few places I know where House Wine won't be below average filth.

Be warned it is dark and dingy inside and I would have doubts about the food. Great during summer because they take full advantage of the terracing outside.

Expensive, small, damp, crowded and with surly French staff...but god I love this place! Had many a great evening in an epic round system with bottles of wine in this place. All the points people moan about, in my view, only make it better. One of London’s great haunts, so long as you like good wine (asking for anything else at the bar produces the most wonderful sigh of contempt from the staff, I once saw a brave/ignorant Canadian asking for a glass of milk. The response: ‘Milk? Milk?! This is a wine Bar!’)

I first went to this place around 2 years ago after the missus reccomended it following on from her visiting her for a few drinks after work. I absolutely love it! One of the best if not the best atmosphere of any licensed premises in London. Full of ordinary people and couples enjoying one of the many beautiful bottles of wine they have on offer. Candlelit, it feels like you are transported from the hustle and bustle of London to heaven!!! Ok, maybe not heaven but you get my drift! Cheapest wine around £15 for a white rising very far upwards! Never had any problems with the staff, although it can take an age to get served!
