A word from The Fulham Wine Rooms
Restaurant - Wine Bar - Wine Shop

We love wine, and all that"s enjoyable around wine: good food, good friends, good conversation.

Head Chef Lorenzo Pintor designs menus to complement our extensive selection of wines, using quality ingredients from suppliers such as Brindisa or Neal's Yard, fresh, well sourced, and simply cooked. We suggest wine matches for all menu items.

Our wine list covers some 200 different bins, sourced to give you a snapshot of what we like from around the world. At any one time you can sample 48 of those by the glass, armed with a pre-paid wine card, with or without help from our wine specialists. We also stock a selection of sparkling and sweet wines, beers and spirits, and our wines are all available at take-out prices for home consumption.

    I was very pleased with this choice of venue as i had walked past & it looked good, but not been inside. It was a great choice for a date, bustly & busy & with a sophisticated crowd ofserious eaters. The bar area was swanky and understated lots of lovely wine paired to each dish. Waiter was attentive and informative and our food, which we thought would be good was excellent. I would highly recomend and am looking forward to visit again, for drinks or food.

    Group booking for 5 we were in a booth table which was ideal, the atmosphere on Friday evening was buzzy and the restaurant was busy but the service was average with us having to remind them for things we'd ordered, which given the restaurant isn't cheap and they automatically add 12.5% service to the bill, was disappointing.

    When serving us wine the waiter spilt a full glass over one of us resulting in having to leave to get changed. Determined not to let it ruin our evening, we were very gracious. After all, accidents happen. When presented with the £250 bill we were surprised we had not been compensated in any way. The food was good so were still willing to pay the 12.5% service charge. The male who took our payment asked how everything was to which one replied, "Good, except for having wine thrown over me" to which he responded, "Yes, it didn't start off well for you did it?" No apology or a sense of regret. In an area such as Fulham where you are not limited for choice of good restaurants, therefore I will not be going back or recommend the restaurant.

    I had a lovely evening with my friends. Staff are very nice and food is delicious! Can't recommend more. We like the self help wine dispensers very much. We bought a card of £50 worth and had tried many different kinds of wine in small glass before we ordered a full glass. We had tapas at the bar while trying the wine. Then we moved to the restaurant for dinner. I had steak and the meat was very juicy and tasty and the hand cut chips was great! We had cheese for dessert and it went wrong with our wine.

    I went with my boyfriend for dinner here and it truly was stunning. The food was great and it was all helped by very friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. All in all a great dinner and I will most definitely be coming back. The wine is quite pricey but that is what you expect from such good wine. We were also told about half price wine Mondays which sounded like a brill idea!! Thanks Fulham Wine Rooms!

    Food was really nice. The service was friendly and efficient. The night ws let down by a table of 6 next to us who were drunk on arrival from polo in the park and were basically shouting through the whole dining experience. Difficult for the waiting staff to say something i know. Was just bad luck. One thing i would say is the only prosecco on the menu cost more than the two mains we ordered. Still, i would go back.

  • Great Night Out

    Dined on 31/5/2014
    My three girlfriends and I wanted to have a night out with good food and wine and this place fit the bill perfectly. It's a busy bar/restaurant, but not so much that you can't hear and enjoy good company. The 'select your own' wine section was gently separated from the dining section so that the younger, groovy crowd could stand about flirting and filling their glasses, while those, like us who wanted a good sit down and natter, were about to do so without being bumped about. Both sections can have their fill of people watching and I really liked our table for four near the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the street. It's a great place to see and be seen and the service was charming. We are going back!

    The Fulham Wine Rooms has a lovely restaurant and we enjoyed the atmosphere. They use good quality ingredients but the food is lacking in flavour. I would recommend it for cold bar snacks or cheese but not for a main meal.

    Very comfortable seating at round table with excellent and friendly service. Main dish of cod on mashed potato with greens and red pepper sauce was cooked to perfection and we indulged with three different desserts plus 1 cheese plate, all delicious. The meal was complimented by an unusual and delicate bottle of Chablis. Well worth a return visit.

    We went for the first time in last month, mainly for the selection of wines by the glass. The selection of wines was very good, as expected, and the food was excellent too. The grilled calamari appetizer was very tender and the jamon selection was very good. The côte de boeuf main was excellent and cooked to order. Service was wonderful with advice on wine and food. Overall, it was a great night and we'll go back.

    Dined on 21/3/2014
    We ordered calamari & "blood orange, walnut& goats cheese salad" as starters. The calamari was tasty, but the so called goat's cheese salad was shockingly poor - simply a huge heap of cabbage dotted with two minuscule slices of orange, one (one!) walnut & a tiny piece of goat's cheese (hardly visible to the naked eye). the waitress was notified but nothing was done to correct the situation. Our cote de boeuf main was cooked well, but it was served with chips rather than new potatoes(their menu description). this is the most expensive main on the menu, but no explanation was offered why they were not serving it with the side described on the menu! Nice ambiance, good wine selection but the food is clearly hit & miss and the staff don't care.

    The food choices on the menu were nice although simple. What made it special however was the wine options they provided. I never would have chosen, for example, to drink a rose with calamari if it had not been suggested. In this sense the Fulham wine rooms was special and it certainly stimulated conversation around the table.

    Food was excellent. The starters were very good with the assorted hams and bread with olive oil shining. our party of six picked fish and meat from the menu. the bream and tuna were cooked to perfection. 4 of us went for t bone steaks (to be shared) and they were tasty but not particularly tender. The ambiance was welcoming with all wine bottles of the world displayed on the walls. A great dining experience. Wholly recommend.

    The kitchen here only opens at 4! luckily they made an exception in our case (booked 2:45 online). TOPTABLE mucked up - nothing about this on their site. The cooked food -delicious & hard to fault. The tapas though - generic - Brindisa distribution? Cambio de Tercio's croquetas much better. My Spanish friend was left underwhelmed by the hams, though in their defense, he's very difficult to please and he agreed that this is more down to the UK's humidity than anything else. Brilliant wine. Gavi d Gavi to start then an expensive Rioja - which was corked. As was the next bottle. Our waiter was fantastic, replacing both bottles immediately with another decent Spanish red that went down a storm. Impressed overall. Will certainly go back!

Have only ever been twice, both in the last month and already looking forward to returning. The Enomatic Wine Dispenser makes it possible to try many great wines by the glass. Recommend for a casual catch up with a friend or as a midweek date location!

    We had a delicious dinner..the lamb was particularly good. The service was very good with the waitress even remembering to say that our pudding order would take some time as it was cooked to demand! My only criticism is that it was a little noisy with some large groups at the back of the restaurant coupled with a wooden floor etc. So I wouldn't take my elderly parents there but the ambience was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

    Had dinner with a friend and it had a lovely ambience...especially when trying to escape Chelsea football fans! Service can be a bit hit or miss. Food, although good...isn't worth the near-£20 price-tag for mains. Probably better for a wine-tasting and nibbles if you don't mind splashing a bit on good wine. (Funny that...given it's a wine bar!)

    FWR would be terrific if they took out three or four tables, letting people breathe and not have to listen to neighbours' conversations. The food - rack of lamb and salmon - was very good and the choice of wine great. Our glasses of Amarone were punk (no arguments), and they didn't have another bottle (??), but the Ribera del Duero substitute was really fine.

    Dined on 6/9/2013
    The Fulham Wine Rooms offers a busy and friendly wine bar ambiance. Very much a wine bar with restaurant attached rather than formal restaurant in feel. The menu is short and to the point confirming again that you get what it says on the bottle - an emphasis on wine not food. But that said some of the dishes are excellent so while not for foodies you need not feel let down by the food offer. The staff are very pleased and able to provided good wine selection advice.... but a bit slow to notice that you might like a coffee or the bill. All together if you accept its limitations an exceptionally good place to spend an evening eating and drinking with friends.
