Tappit Hen


Located in the heart of the city, close to Cannon Street and Bank station, The Tappit Hen Wine Bar and Restaurant is the latest addition to the Davy's family. 

Serving up breakfast, lunch and dinner visitors can expect seasonal modern British dishes. The restaurant's menu features seasonal dishes using fresh ingredients, including Brixham place saltimbocca and Kentish Hop sausages. 

In the bar, choose from signature tartines (perfect winter lunch), alongside a selection of small plates and sharing options including: smoked duck Welsh rarebit and chilli jam; and spiced salmon fish cake, crab mayonnaise and mustard. 

The wine list is extensive with a varied by-the-glass selection, fine wines served using Coravin and, in a nod to the building’s history, a wide range of Ports and fortified wines. Enthusiasts will be excited to see exceptional, rare vintages on the list, including Sandeman 1920 Port and Blandy's Verdelho Solera Madeira from 1870 - the very year Davy's was founded.

Host your own private party, dinner, business meeting or tasting one of two Private Dining Rooms perfect for all types of celebrating and entertaining.
