SquareMeal Review of The Little Bar

Dreamed up by foodie journalist and magazine editor Madeleine Lim, The Little Bar certainly lives up to its diminutive name. Set in converted retail premises, it’s a perfectly formed neighbourhood watering hole complete with high stools at the pristine counter and seating in a dinky courtyard. Its wine offer includes a modest range of vino from small producers (available by the glass from £4), but they’ll also fix you various takes on the classic kir, Italian spritzs, numerous negroni variants, a mean martini, picklebacks, Julian Temperley’s méthode champenoise Somerset cider, and locally brewed Wolfie Smith brown ale – a libation that harks back to Tooting’s days as a hotbed of revolution (led by Citizen Smith, in the 1970s sitcom). To nibble, there are boquerones, terrines, charcuterie and cheese plates on the cheap.
