This hidden gem, a short walk from London Bridge, is London’s first real wine bar opened in 1964 by John Davy trading as a Free Vintner – a privilege granted by the Worshipful Company of Vintners. Brimming with genuine character and jovial service, it has the feel of a private members club (for ladies and gentleman) and is home to some of the most original private rooms in the area. Enjoy best quality meats, Donald Russell’s award winning steaks, British fish and seafood and delicious seasonal dishes. All polished off with an artisan cheese selection and traditional puds. Our wine list boasts an extensive range drawn from Davy’s Wine Merchants cellars in Greenwich including fine wines by the glass using Coravin.


Food & Wine

Our Executive Chef Sean Davies sources fresh, seasonal and quality ingredients from a number of trusted local suppliers. All our wines are supplied by Davy’s wine merchants and selected by James Davy and the wine buying team.
