We went here for a friend's birthday and essentially got one of everything off the menu to share (apart from the oysters). Everyone loved the food and wine - a favourite were the anchovies. Good service too. The only thing I would say is that...More

It can get very busy, but if you manage to go there at a quiet time it is most enjoyable, especially downstairs where you can escape the mess of food places in central London and savour a great selection of Mediterranean food from selected producers....More

This place is a little hidden away. It is a charming wine bar with a great selection of wines, mainly from Europe (some New World too) and mostly fairly affordable. They also do good food to go with wine, including charcuterie, oysters, steaks etc. Unpretentious...More

This place works for a friend's night out, a romantic meal, a post-theatre snack and drink or a lunch. It has a fantastic ambiance, the wine cellar is encyclopedic and they get the food just right with a fine array of cheeses and charcuterie. The...More

Two friends and I popped in just wanting to hang out and have some nice wine. Don't' be dissuaded by the seemingly small bar area as they have a huge downstairs seating area along with another bar area. Staff was awesome--very knowledgeable about the wine...More

One of the best central wine bars. Good for a good quality glass of wine and cheeseboard/charcuterie pre or post theatre. Reasonable prices for the area.

We have been here twice during our few days long London visit. Our lunch here was good but nothing special, interesting food, friendly and informal service. It was good enough to return for a dinner next day. And that was when magic happened. The dinner...More

Response from Michael K |
You don't. It is a city centre eaterie. Just get the train from the far north. In any case, there is no point in eating there if you plan to drive home. It is essentially a place to drink with food attached.
Is there any food suitable for a vegetarian who eats fish?

Terroirs is a well established natural wine bar serving drinks with energy and food with respect. Terroirs is split between two levels. The street-level restaurant has some outdoor seating and a large bar counter that can seat up to 14 people, with a great view of the open kitchen. The Cellar downstairs has very high ceilings and original brick walls, with a separate kitchen and bar area. As well as being a dinning room, it's used for in-house events such as winemaker dinners and movie screenings, and is also available for private hire.
