Message from James Davy

16th March 2020


To all Davy’s customers,

It is with huge personal sadness that I have to announce that all Davy’s Wine Bars and our other associated bars and restaurants are now temporarily closed to the public until further notice. This is to protect our teams and limit the further spread of the COVID-19 virus.

For the time being, our online shop, Greenwich shop and wholesale business continue to operate as normal, following strict Government guidance. We welcome any support that you can give, by choosing to buy wine from us over the months ahead.

This was supposed to be a year of celebration – 150 years as an independent, family wine business.  Instead, it has become an epic challenge for us all.  However, over the course of our history, there have been other very tumultuous periods and please be in no doubt that I will do my absolute utmost to bring about the resurrection of the business after this one, and at the earliest possible moment.

I would like to say thank you for all the messages of support that we have received over the past week.  I wish you and your families good health and look forward to welcoming you back into our wine bars for a glass of something special, as soon as this truly awful period is over.

James Davy
