Champagne and cheese make the perfect pairing at shop-cum-bistro, Champagne + Fromage. Secreted away on Wellington Street in Covent Garden, Champagne + Fromage is Gallic at its most gorgeous: displays of Champagne, cheese and charcuterie make for a chic centerpiece, whilst mismatched furniture and reclaimed materials add a stamp of authentic French flair. A variety of 25 award-winning grower Champagnes sourced from only the smallest, most independent producers are available to enjoy in the bistro alongside plates of rustic French fare. Menu highlights include the tartines – a single slice of homemade bread draped in slivers of cheese, charcuterie or fruit and drizzled with rich olive oil. Frogs’ legs and snails also make an appearance, alongside cheese and charcuterie boards and a selection of temping desserts.

They had no record of booking but luckily there was space. I’d even emailed the day before to check (I tried to call but no reply). There was no chef in so could only have cold meats /cheese.

Had a lovely time for my Mum’s birthday, thanks to the staff for the candle in the macaron! Great for a special occasion.

I love it here and the champagne is fantastic. What I would say is that sometimes the cheese doesn't always seem as fresh as it could be, and the portions on the boards are quite tiny for the cost. But the atmosphere is lovely and it's a great place to come :)

Was hoping to find a nice cheese fondue place. The food was good not great, Ive had better and the melted cheese was cold on arrival - had to send back.

Unfortunately we couldn’t get red wine by the glass which was my preference on a cold night. Champagne doesn’t have the same effect.

There were also strict rules on ordering before 8:30pm, so before finishing our main were being asked to order if we wanted anything else, and if we did to order it immediately as the kitchen would be closing.

In general, we had a nice time but there was nothing the stood out about the experience, was all just ok and cost more than £60 for 2 drinks and a shared cheese dish. I would also prefer to have service not added to the bill unless asked, this is my viewpoint on all restaurants that automatically include it. It should be discretionary based on service, not an expectation added to the bill.

Not planning a return visit.

Always a great place even if it is a little pricey. Best to book as only a few tables. The cheese and meat platters are amazing and they also have very good bread

Appreciate that I made the reservations months in advance to meet a London friend at the restaurant and then go to theater. From the time I booked the restaurant booked a Holiday Party for a buy out and the restaurant was closed to the public when I arrived to meet my friend. They welcomed us in and put us in a Private room so we could visit and have our Champagne and food and when we left the main party was going on.

Champagne and Fromage was perfect - good quality produce and fantastic bubbly. We went here after the theatre for a drink and cheese/meat sharing board. The produce used on the sharing board was of excellent quality and tasted amazing. We will definitely go back. The service was good and efficient. I can not fault this place.

Have intended to visit here everytime I visit London. I ordered the champagne flight and gastro board. Our waitress explained the selections and gave her recommendations which I found extremely helpful and useful. Everything was delicious and the food was authentic. Our waitress was French, as was the couple at the other table and with the great background music I felt I was truly in France.

Small restaurant but ideal to step out of the Covent Garden streets into a small piece of Paris.

The menu is great, the duck delicious and followed by cheeses and desserts, we had a great time.

What more could you ask for? Amazing selection of cheeses, delicious cured meats, and wonderful desserts. The service was friendly and attentive, and the limited number of tables gives an exclusive yet casual vibe. Highly recommend the lavender and goats cheese brûlée - an interesting combination of flavours, but what a revelation! It was possibly the highlight of the meal!

From the outside you would never realise that you can go in here and eat a really good lunch, enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and chill out. The food was excellent, the choice was more than just cheese and the service perfect. For a casual lunch with a friend I would highly recommend this place.

Absolute brilliant find! Food staff and ambience were first class.
I asked for a bottle of dry champagne and what was recommended was spot on! I even bought a bottle to take home as I did cheese.
The food was fresh and presented well! The staff were attentive

Took my parents for afternoon champagne and cheese and cured meats board while they were visiting the city. They absolutely loved it! The meats and cheeses were to die for and very generous servings. The staff are polite and courteous. Very small premise but lots to look at.

Interesting concept but I think we could have ordered better - we found some of the dishes a little too rich / sickly. However, there were many more less cheese heavy that we could have ordered. Nice venue - very small but it works.

dark and not very spatious this very expensive place serves tapas a la Francaise but with British water!
THe highlight is the corsican charcuterie, a rarity and youc na purchase cheeese and other products to take home but be prepare to pay a hefty price.

Been meaning to visit for some time, was nice to take my friend for a good old catchup. The food and drink options are amazing, interesting selection of cheese and great initiative combinations. The tar time of fig and snail, are so yummy. The extensive champagne list is outstanding. The service was attentive and informative. Don't worry if you are overwhelmed by the list, the staff will help guide you. I didn't feel rushed or pressure to leave after the table was cleared. Such a lovely setting for a nice imitate gathering, be it with friends or a date. I would highly recommend everyone to visit. I will surely return and try some more champagne and types of cheese.
