London Bridge commuters can fortify themselves for the journey home at this wine bar/restaurant just yards from the station. With two-dozen tipples by the glass, there's plenty to wet the whistle, although it's a shame not to delve into the full list. South Africa features heavily (it's where VB's owners are from), although most wine-producing countries get a look-in. A full menu is available in both the ground-floor bar and basement dining room, so try your luck with chicken Caesar salad or wild-boar terrine followed by a springbok burger, braised osso bucco with gremolata or red gurnard with warm ratatouille. Otherwise, ‘world platters' and charcuterie provide a convivial accompaniment to drinks. Even if you're only dropping by for a quick glass, be sure to visit the basement wine cellar and cheese room.
