Excellent wine list, good selection of cheese and charcuterie. Sharing dishes are very good. Waitress gave very good explanations of the dishes and wine recommendations. Good buzzy atmosphere. Only downside is that it is a bit small and cramped.

A bit dark a noisy but lively, efficient, kind and informal service. Very interesting choice of wines, expecially bio and natural. Tasty dishes expecially french cheese and italian salumi. It's better to make a reserviatiion if you don't wanna wait long. Appreciable the free cold...More

Superb food - the £10 lunch special is frequently excellent . The range of charcuterie is outstanding and the wine selection is great as well as being very unusual

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

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.

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.
