SquareMeal Review of Shampers

Largely intact since its launch, Shampers popped its first Heidsieck cork back when John Travolta was strutting his stuff in Saturday Night Fever. In 1977, of course, the house fizz cost a fraction of its current £41. These days, a similar amount will also buy Hampshire’s sparkling Jenkyn Place Brut – or you can push the boat out with a bottle of Krug Grand Cuvée (£155). The wine list proper takes a tour of France’s regions before striking out to the rest of Europe, the New World and even the Lebanon. Organic names are also represented, and there’s an impressive selection of more than 40 by-the-glass options. The menu runs from fizz-friendly gravadlax and oysters, through juicy English steaks or liver and bacon, before winding up with indulgent puddings – all spot-on for Shampers’ loyal mix of pinstriped professionals and ladies who lunch.

Another place I love. It's a real "easy" place to go to - amazing wine list, food is good. Ambiance is understated decor wise, but interesting. Always a buzz in the place and people who go there are very nice and friendly.

Well, it all looked so promising, Shampers is one of the original wine bars and still has a great vibe. The service was good too – so why won't I be going back – at least not to eat? Because I don't go to a wine bar to fork out nearly #50 per head, thats why not and no, we were not drinking Chateau Yquem. One bottle of wine (#20) two glasses of house champagne, two (ok but unremarkable courses) each and one very disappointing chocolate pot that wasn't worth finishing and suddenly the bill – with 12% service included- had climbed to #95 for two. So farewell, then Shampers, winebar fare is clearly no longer the cheap and cheerful fare of yesteryear. At least, not in this part of Soho.
