It may be pitched as a ‘wine bar with cake', but this neighbourhood eatery offers much, much more. The excellent 200-bin wine list draws heavily on organic/biodynamic producers, while the eclectic, front-room vibe and approachable brasserie menu also add to Henry Root's charm. Perch at the bar with some charcuterie (perhaps duck rillettes on toast) or settle in the dining room for the likes of smoked duck breast with pomegranate and hazelnuts followed by line-caught sea bass with Jerusalem artichoke purée and ratatouille or macaroni cheese with black truffle – but be sure to leave room for one of the ‘amazing' desserts such as Pimm's jelly. One-course lunches (with a glass of wine) are a snip, and the place is dreamy when the concertina doors are opened onto Park Walk.
