The Don in question is George Sandeman, a Scotsman who in 1798 took over these premises for his port, sherry and wine emporium. Serious imbibing is still central to the appeal of this vintage City aristocrat, and the list pays homage to the site's heritage as well as highlighting wines from the owners' Trinity Hill vineyard in New Zealand. But readers adore everything about The Don, from its "discreet" courtyard location to its uniquely cosseting atmosphere – perfect for long business lunches. Impeccable European flavours dominate the menu, which roams its way from ravioli of snails or baked scallops en croûte with vanilla butter to roast cod with lyonnaise onions or perhaps saddle
of hare with jugged leg, celeriac purée and
bitter chocolate sauce. Fans also drool over the "huge, juicy and gorgeous" chateaubriand, likewise the warm ginger fondant with clotted cream. One regular sums it up: "From the corner wine cellar to the cheese trolley, this is the
way the world should be."
From a set menu.

The Don and sister restaurant, Sign of the Don part of the renowned Bleeding Heart Group, have a variety of Private Dining and Exclusive Hire options in some of the City’s finest restored historic dining rooms. You can enjoy fine food, superb wine and an attentive level of warm professional service. Private rooms can be hired throughout the day for both seated and standing dining events, or for a unique meeting space.
The stunning brick-lined and vaulted Sandeman Rooms were originally a bottling cellar for port and sherry shippers. Separately seating 24 in one and 28 in the other, both can be opened up into one longer space for larger groups. Along with the Tasting Room these are the popular spaces for private dining. Hire of the Tasting Room - seating up to 18, is truly unique to London and can include a visit to the restored cellar below which once led all the way to the Thames.
For larger groups hire of the restaurant spaces can be arranged, up to 50 in the White room and 45 in the Old Restaurant. The Wine Study that looks into the restaurant through a glass wall of wine is perfect for a semi private dining spot up to 16.
The entire venue can also be exclusively hired at the weekends, using various spaces to accommodate up to 250 for a standing reception.
