Wine Dinners at The White Swan


Throughout 2010, Tom and Ed Martin are launching a series of monthly wine dinners at their pub and dining room The White Swan. Taking place on the last Friday of every month at 7.30pm, starting from 26 March, oenophiles can look forward to an evening learning about wine and matching different vintages to classic British dishes.

Hosted by the restaurant’s sommelier Paulo Brammer in the upstairs dining room, guests can enjoy five courses individually paired with some top wines. Dishes on the menu include the likes of poached plaice with Jerusalem artichokes and black truffle, matched with a floral Marsanne from the Rhône valley; braised rib of beef with bone marrow and kale, paired with a ripe Carmenere from Chile; and chocolate ganache with star anise ice cream and candied peanuts, paired with a Pedro Ximénex sherry. And for those who might like to swot up later, tasting notes will be provided for each course.

The event is priced at £42 per person, and with only 40 tickets available, booking is essential. For more information or to book, contact Nadia on 020 7242 9122 or
