Square Meal Review of Vivat Bacchus ?

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.

    SamTheFoodFan :: Vivat Bacchus London Bridge

    'Tis the season to be jolly and all of that. When meeting a friend for the last of my planned Christmas festivities, I decided on a restaurant right near the station I travel home from. Lazy, I know. I have heard of Vivat Bacchus, it's owned by a few South Africans and the wine list is predominantly South African, a rare thing in London. It's been open in London Bridge since 2008 and there is another restaurant in Farringdon that has been open since 2001. I don't know why it's taken me so long to visit here. I am a massive lover of steak and they have a great selection, but it's not every day you see kangaroo on the menu...
