SquareMeal Review of Humble Grape Fleet Street

"GOOD"

This far-from-humble mini-chain has taken London’s wine lovers by storm: its owner specialises in sourcing biodynamic and largely organic wines from small, family-owned estates for trying and buying in the tasting room or enjoying alongside the dishes on their wine-friendly small-plates menu in the casual dining space. Each wine comes with a cracking back-story, which the venues’ friendly, informed staff are only too happy to tell you about – and because the more than 400 bottles in Humble Grape’s collection are imported directly, they offer impressive value for money. Take a seat in the convivial, rustic interiors, with its muted colour schemes and recycled fittings, and get to grips with the vintages on the regularly changing by-the-glass/carafe list: entry-level pours are accessibly priced, with jokey tasting notes that won’t intimidate, while the top-tier offerings and off-the-shelf wines deliver some stellar surprises to connoisseurs.

This is a very good restaurant hidden down St Bride's Passage and is therefore easy to miss. This is a pity, for the western end of the City is somewhat lacking in good place to eat and the food at The Humble Grape is excellent. I strongly recommend their wonderful and flavourful duck rillettes as a starter and one of their very, very good fish dishes as a main Service is attentive and friendly and one can be very relaxed. The prices are keen and I find it one of the best values for money anywhere in the City, of which I have been a denizen for nearly forty years. They have interesting wines for sale and if you know your wines you can find some excellent ones at good prices. In winter, I invariably buy my port there even if it means lugging it back home from the City. The only thing that I would fault is the atmosphere. The decor and ambiance are basic and even drab. I feel that something equally simple yet more cozy could be done in the context of this rather interesting site. A more congenial atmosphere may also serve to attract more people as the place is never as full as it truly deserves to be. I wish it success and shall continue to be a frequent visitor.
