Boot & Flogger

Tucked away on a quiet side-street close to Borough Market and just a short walk from London Bridge station, The Boot & Flogger is the original Davy’s Wine Bar. Opened in 1965 by John Davy trading as a Free Vintner – a privilege granted by the Worshipful Company of Vintners – it became the blueprint for wine bars in London.

Visitors to the Boot & Flogger enjoy classic British cooking. Look out for best quality meats, British fish and daily specials; 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.

Brimming with genuine character and jovial service, The Boot & Flogger is also home to some of the most characterful local private dining rooms.
