Relaxed atmosphere in very pleasant surroundings. Staff were very professional. Excellent food and service. The manager very knowledgeable about the wines he stocked in his vast collection. A must for a stop-off drink and light lunch

Found this one by accident. Lovely selection of wines. Friendly staff, including the older gentleman who owned the place (I think) definitely worth a look.

Away from pub noise and pub grub, we found this cellar like haven down a side street. The focus is of course on wine, with an ample selection and pricing options. The food platters/boards were tasty and interesting, we were hungry so had one each.

Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond

browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
