SquareMeal Review of Gyngleboy

Out-of-towners who have just stepped off the train at Paddington station may not be familiar with the London-only Davy’s brand, but it doesn’t take long to get to grips with a concept that’s all about wine, sawdust & British nostalgia. Instead of lesser-spotted City workers (the chain’s usual customer base), this venue is populated by in-transit drinkers clutching a glass of something civilised to help them on their way. The options include own-label bottles as well as an accessible international spread from reputable sources (plus a couple of draught ales), while those looking to avoid on-board catering can choose from a food menu with a similarly globetrotting character. Take your pick from an inventory that runs from hand-carved Alderton ham & oak-smoked salmon to treacle tart & chocolate pannacotta, via Hungarian goulash, salmon niçoise & tortilla sharing plates.

Intimacy is the name of the game at this small private room seating just four, in a wine bar where well-kept ale and decent globe-trotting wines are a given. Clearly if you have matters of state to discuss without the fear of prying ears – or just a simple working lunch - this may be just the ticket. Into the bargain, you can enjoy a simple menu of sandwiches or salads as well as Davy’s classics, from potted shrimps and duck paté to home-baked ham, risotto, prawn linguine or bangers and mash.
