A French place close to Trafalgar Square, where you can find simple dishes but with an excellent quality. They have an extensive wine collection as well. The service is fantastic. Would highly recommend it

Great evening - huge wine list : we stuck to the house recommendations on the front of the menu which were excellent. Food interesting and well presented - good range of small plates. Service brisk but friendly and well informed. Will certainly go again..and again

Never miss a visit to Terroirs whenever I'm in London. They've got a great extensive wine list with the most well known natural wine makers as well as undiscovered gems. Service may vary, sometimes it's good and they can give you the right recommendations, sometimes...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.
