We were welcomed and we're taken to be shown how to taste wine. I thought I already knew!! The instruction was very good and laid back, you didn't have to spit the wine out so don't worry! You then get to look around the wine...More

I love this place, it is so much fun. Starts of a sensible night of wine tasting and quaffing, soon turns into a hilarious night as the samples flow. Definitely worth a visit. Get the deluxe package as you get the champagne.

This event was bought for my wife and I as a gift. We were not disappointed. Easy to find and welcoming atmosphere. You begin with a glass of wine and a talk on how to look at, smell (nose) and, best of all, drink wine!...More

Disappointing changes have dropped what was once a wonderful experience to only an average one. Still got great wines, but miss the caring old staff serving you as you walk around. New machine dispensers are not as service friendly

Cool place. We have tried a lot of wines. We enjoyed with my friends, they should have more restaurant or variety of food.

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
