The Bar & Wine List
Our extensive list of over 100 wines, many by the glass, has been developed with the help of award-winning wine writer, Simon Woods, ex-editor of the ‘Which’ Wine Guide and Financial Times columnist. Well priced and mainly available by the glass.
Gold and Silver Wine List
While we're proud of all the wines on our list, we're particularly attached to our gold and silver wines. We believe these offer very good value for money and as you can see there is an excellent selection. It is also our aim to make choosing wine simpler for everyone.
There is a simple price structure:
Silver wine: Glass 175mL £3.85, Carafino 250mL £5.40, Bottle 75cl £14.95
Gold wine: Glass 175mL £4.50, Carafino 250mL £5.95, Bottle 75cl £16.50
We particularly like the Carafino and we hope you will try them - at 250ml that is a third of a bottle and whereas some outlets serve 250ml in a glass, we believe it is slightly more civilised to put a lesser quantity in your glass and hopefully enjoy the bouquet. So whatever you chose we'd like to think that you enjoyed our silver and gold wines.
