Square Meal Review of The Vintry ?

Coffered concrete ceilings meet mismatched church-hall furnishings at The Vintry, a big, boisterous Fuller’s pub tucked into the maze of alleyways between Cannon Street & Bank. It may be big, but space is at a premium & on fine nights the good-natured crowd often takes over the traffic-free precincts of St Mary Abchurch. Fuller’s ales are lined up on the pumps, & there’s a 100-bin, French-led wine list for those who prefer grape to grain. An open kitchen is the heart & soul of the enterprise, cooking up 28-day-aged Hereford & Ayrshire steaks, plates of wild duck with elderberries, black cabbage & roast swede, & reputedly ‘the best fish & chips in the City’. Oysters, sharing plates & evening nibbles provide some lighter alternatives.

Wine List Of The Year Finalist

Printed on very obviously recycled paper, The Vintry’s authentic credentials will go down well with any hipsters who’ve biked over from nearby Shoreditch. The list is split into two bits. There’s a short, seasonally changing list that is a miracle of condensation and legibility – someone, somewhere, has a very good eye for design… And it is backed up by a ‘full list’ jammed with good wines under £50 and show-off stuff for the City boys. More accessible, multi-faceted lists like this and Britain would be a better place…
