A smart, traditional wine bar slap bang opposite Liverpool Street station, this branch of the Balls Brothers chain has had a sophisticated refit, with the burgundy decor ditched in favour of elegant pastel shades. Customers are kept happy with comfort food & a reputable selection of wines. The daytime menu is grouped under headings such as ‘pots’, ‘bites’ & ‘boards’ (think half-a-dozen quails’ eggs with celery salt, or duck liver & Armagnac pâté), while the evening line-up features extra dishes including crispy calamari rings with aïoli or steak & ale pie. Wine buffs should take advantage of the seven-strong range of ‘flights’: three 125ml glasses with a particular theme – perhaps New World reds or a trio of rosés. A loyalty card scheme rewards regular quaffers with discounts on liquid purchases.
