Review 2016/17

Predominantly reaped from France, the wine list at this characterful haven over two floors, rising close to Carnaby Street, brings together 18 pages of ecologically-friendly wines, including 20 sometimes provocative pours by the glass.

In the venue’s own words: ‘We only collaborate with small growers who work organically and biodynamically in the vineyard.’

A food menu guided by the hands of Mikael Jonsson, the Swedish chef founder of the acclaimed Hedone restaurant in Chiswick, is here realised by Michael Hazlewood. Dishes includes a starter of smoked eel with a herb broth and Piattone beans, then main course of Cornish pollock with apricot and, pretty in purple, sea aster.

It culminates with, when in season, English strawberries, vanilla cream and a melon ‘consommé’. Be sure to include Hedone’s bread and butter at the start of your meal, too.

Particularly interesting picks include older expressions of Vermentino/Chenin Blanc from Domaine Alain Chabanon (Lagamas), including the 2007, 2008 and 2010 ‘Trélans’, as well as a bottle of legendary Clos de la Coulée de Serrant, Savennières (2008).

Note, most of the wines from the list are also available to take away close to retail price.
