 The Tappit Hen is a new wine bar and restaurant for the City.

The ground floor bar is the perfect place to explore the wine list including a by-the-glass selection using Coravin and an extensive collection of Port and fortified wines; while modern British cooking will be served in the restaurant and private dining rooms.

The Tappit Hen takes its name from the traditional 2.1 litre Port bottle and is situated in the former London home of the Sandeman Port house.  Look out for subtle references to the building’s rich, wine history throughout.
