Review 2016/17

Changing each day and chalked up on the board, this is one of the most dynamic lists in London. Low-intervention producers form the thrust of the menu, and speaking to the effervescent and wine savvy owner Jeremie Cometto-Lingenheim will reward with nuggets of information to help you make your choices.

This feels like one of the wine lists in London which really has a life of its own, and the fact there is no printed list adds to the charm. There’s an emphasis on ‘natural’ wines, and everything is available by the glass and carafe.

The quirky setting (an old 1930s garage in a quiet, tree-lined street), the open kitchen, the chalkboard wine list – it’s all very endearing. Some cracking magnums are revealed regularly, too.
