Pre/post Theatre
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.

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.

Pricing unclear on the menu, so it ends up being surprisingly overpriced.

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
Cannot wait to return

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.

Really enjoyed a fun evening with lovely meats and cheeses washed down with Champagne.
Great service from charming girls.
Two comments. The Champagne is on the pricey side by a small margin. There needs to be a wine and beer alternative. My son does not drink Champagne so will not go back despite loving the food. A couple sat down adjacent to us, found there was no wine and left. A real shame.

Unlike other comments service was very good. Liked the food and the champagne. Not exactly the cheapest but hey it's got champagne in the name. Just didn't like the fact their menu on the website is out of date. They don't do fish any more. When you don't eat meat that's disappointing. Would really improve the experience. You can have too much cheese.

Champagne & Fromage is a lovely boutique with great cheese, a lovely French menu and an awesome champagne list. The service can be a little bit iffy sometimes but guess that's part of the charm?

Had three excellent pestos while an absolutely delicious Vacherin Mont D'or was melted with garlic and champagne for us. Staff were friendly and helpful finding gluten free bread and toasting it for me. Dined with my daughter and we both loved it. Food excellent value, champagne not bad value for London.
