SquareMeal Review of Boot & Flogger

The original Boot & Flogger opened back in 1964, the first of many wine bars in Davy’s gentrified London empire. Today, the promise of superior imbibing remains satisfied, and it’s easy to see why this excellent wood-panelled watering hole is a favourite with the political and legal set, what with its fine upholstered furniture and list of limited-availability vintages (no hoppy draughts here). Dozens of affordable Old World wines by the glass are joined by a number of half-bottles, if time and clear-headedness are at a premium. The booze is matched by gentlemanly food offerings such as Morecambe Bay potted shrimps, game pies and cuts of rare sirloin, which simply add to the Flogger’s general air of geniality and old-fashioned charm.

That was our anniversary meal and we both enjoyed the meal. Our table was a best table in the pub. Good service and good meal!

6 of us were booked to see “Candide” at the Menier. We picked B & F because it is ideally situated for the theatre and we had had very good meals there before. All 4 guests of ours thoroughly enjoyed the experience as did we. A delightful start to the evening.

The Boot and Flogger was booked for a pre theatre meal. We were six in all and our guests had never been here before. They were of course enchanted by the wonderful dark timber decor and feel of an ancient wine bar and the comfort. Service was most accomodating in that we arrived somewhat early and even a G&T that was preferred instead of a rather indifferent wine. Food was good, but the highlight was the peppery potted shrimp. A happy return visit and a real find in the London Bridge area.

Picked this restaurant/bar as the nearest to the Menier Theatre. Very authentic feel – dark wood panelling, little nooks to sit in. Warm welcome, good service and surprisingly good food – all cooked on the premises. White wine was well chilled. Put us in a good mood for going to the theatre.
