Call Planet of the Grapes Bow Lane to make a booking on:
Its name may be a puerile pun, but this dive bar and off-sales shop stocks some of the planet’s best wine: as do its Leadenhall sibling. Knowledgeable staff will advise on over 500 vintages. Paying retail price plus corkage of £10 per bottle pushes red-letter-day French reds, classy New World whites and special-occasion fizz towards everyday drinking territory – although witty artworks of notorious imbibers caution against a second bottle of irresistible Côte de Beaune. The by-the-glass selection has top-notch Rioja, Grüner Veltliner and claret at £9 per 250ml glass, and Champagne at £8. For lunch, Anglo-Med main courses cost from £14. Order the daily special – confit rabbit leg, aubergine, cauliflower and prunes, say – or snap-up the four-for-£30 tapas deal that also appears on the truncated evening menu.
