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. Best quality meats hand carved off the bone, Donald Russell’s award winning steak, superfood salads and delicious seasonal dishes cater for discerning customers. All polished off with a substantial British cheese board and sticky puds. Our wine list boasts a large number of rare vintages alongside an extensive range from Davy’s Wine Merchant cellars.


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.
