Square Meal Review of Planet of the Grapes ?

You don’t need to part with a ‘monkey’ (£500) to pick up a quality quaff at Planet of the Grapes, a City offshoot of the dapper Holborn wine merchant’s. The decor mixes globe lamps & refectory tables with framed wine bottles, & the name may suggest a cheapo ‘booze cruise’ warehouse, but POTG’s range is worthy of a day trip to the City; pay retail plus a corkage fee of £10 to sample any of 300 bottles: £18 should secure a mellifluous Chilean Merlot, while a £20 ticket for El Escoses Volante (‘the Flying Scotsman’) buys a superb blended Manga del Brujo. To eat, try pies & platters plus a trio each of starters & mains: choose mackerel terrine with horseradish & glazed beetroots, ricotta-stuffed courgette flowers with lentils & radish, or apricot & almond tart.
