Largely intact since its launch, Shampers popped its first Heidsieck cork back when John Travolta was strutting his stuff in Saturday Night Fever. In 1977, of course, the house fizz cost a fraction
of its current £41. These days, a similar amount will also buy Hampshire’s sparkling Jenkyn Place Brut – or you can push the boat out with a bottle of Krug Grand Cuvée (£155). The wine list proper
takes a tour of France’s regions before striking out to the rest of Europe, the New World and even the Lebanon. Organic names are also represented, and there’s an impressive selection of more than
40 by-the-glass options. The menu runs from fizz-friendly gravadlax and oysters, through juicy English steaks or liver and bacon, before winding up with indulgent puddings – all spot-on for
Shampers’ loyal mix of pinstriped professionals and ladies who lunch.
Tucked away just behind Regent Street, Shampers has a very cosy, familiar atmosphere. Despite the fact that we could not spot any non-business lunches, it felt more homely than corporate. The slightly asymmetrical pictures on the wall, the fresh flowers on the tables and in the bathroom, the blackboard with the specials on it… all contribute to a very comfortable atmosphere...
