The Bottlescrue

Squaremeal Review of The Bottlescrue ?

Perched at the edge of dreary Holborn Viaduct, this laid-back wine bar offers a cheerful refuge. Decorated in the Davy’s vein, with bottles & barrels for ornament & drifts of sawdust on the floor, it offers a menu that is instantly recognisable. The hearty best-of-British approach is characterised by sausages & mash, steak sarnies & chicken salad. Wash it all down with something from the strong wine list with many options by the glass. Good for summer alfresco if you don’t mind the traffic.

A step back in time

Editor's pick After a successful after works drinks at the Bottlescrue, I thought it was worth checking out for a lunchtime. Unfortunately I picked a beautiful summer's day to descend into the depths of this very traditional. subterranean winebar, but the coolness and quietness we encountered was actually a blessing in disguise. For once we could hear ourselves speak! True it is a throwback to the winebars of my early days in the City, but sometimes a steak sandwich with a side of fries just hits the spot....

Editor's pick Came here for a family celebration. One guest was an hour late, so we waited in the bar. Gradually we became aware that everyone was leaving, and we were the only ones left. Once we were all assembled, we were shown to a large table at the back, with two extra chairs, we tried to arrange ourselves so we could sit near to each other and chat. There were a number of private dining rooms around, none of them seemed occupied. As far as we could see, staff had nobody else to serve. Steak and burgers...
