I’ve gleaned a little about wine over the years - I can use the term ‘mouthfeel’ like I know what it means, and have drunk enough £4.99 bottles of corner shop red to know what the bad stuff looks like. On the flipside, I’ve got a long way to go; I once necked a glass of fancy Brunello di Montelcino…
Located just off Bishopsgate, next door to Liverpool Street Station, the latest venue from the Humble Grape family is the perfect for a few post-work drinks or a spot of dinner. Alongside serving up 30 wines by the glass, with a further 400+ bottles to purchase for drinking-in or taking-away, the bar and restaurant offers a menu of seasonal small plates and sharing platters.
The set over two floors, the 54-cover venue has stayed in keeping with its sister sites in Battersea, Islington and off Fleet Street. Quirky and individual, the interiors are decked out with shelves and furniture made from reclaimed winemaking materials and a stunning listed stone wall inside. In reclaiming and recycling much of their furniture, Humble Grape maintains the sustainable ethos that extends to everything from their menus – which are themselves made from recycled crushed grapes – to the wines, the majority of which are biodynamic, organic or from sustainable vineyards.
Wine novices and aficionados alike can discover the stories behind every glass, either from the team (who are trained by the winemakers themselves) or by exploring the Winemaker Wall, featuring photos and tales from the vineyards and winemakers. From ex-professional rugby players and father-daughter dynamic duos to octogenarian grandmas and the ubiquitous cantankerous old Frenchmen, Humble Grape's small, family winemakers are as diverse and interesting as the wines themselves.

Every Tuesday our team builds a mini wine tasting around a special theme. Think of it as a spontaneous night of wine celebration. Also, as the wines are one at a time, it gives our wine educated team the chance to pair some of our small plates with the wines too! (Nothing to pay now, we'll add the experience to your bill on the day.)
