Fortnum & Mason - Wine Bar
The Wine Bar boasts an extensive wine list made up of a choice of 107 wines by the glass.
Spoilt for choice with wine flights, food pairing, charcuterie, an amazing cheese board & freshly shucked oysters this is the decadent spot to catch up with friends or loved ones.
Always a good stopping off place after a hard day. Wines are good quality and staff are friendly and knowledgeable.
Food was great and a really nice setting, but service was a bit lacking. We really didn’t like being told we were too early arriving at 11.57 for a 12.00 booking.
First time here. A nice bar to have a drink. Would go back.
This is the second time we have visited the wine bar for a birthday celebration. It didn't disappoint, it was fabulous. The service is excellent, the food is amazing. It's small ish so intimate but busy enough that it was a good atmosphere. I think the best thing we have learned form this second visit is that it isn't just a treat or celebration place, its reasonably priced enough that you can get amazing food and a glass of wine for not a lot at all - probably no more then you'd spend elsewhere. We love the style of small plates and just ordering 6/7 and sharing - its perfectly relaxed and casual but with a sense of decadence all wrapped in to one. We love it - you have to try it!
A great place to enjoy a fine bottle of wine and a charcuterie and cheese platter. Great service and a fine setting. Really enjoyed the time we spent here and will definitely return in the future. Will also make sure we're commend this place to our friends and family.
Power cut and closed so very inconvenient to find another venue for pre event drink. Why no back up generator?
Very disappointed travelled from the North West for 50th celebration. Arrived at Fortnums to be told it was shut due to power cut.
No telephone call to try and stop us traveling to the venue. I accept problems happen but when booking telephone number is given so at the very least you would expect someone to try and call you.
Always excellent. Superb food and wine. Ask for advice on wine and you will be treated to the best wines, with a full explanation of where they are produced. The staff may have the knowledge but it is shared in a friendly and unstuffy way. The best place in London to chill over a glass of wine. So good I visited the next day.
Excellent in all respects. Thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Very enjoyable hour and half with a wine flight each and a tray of cheese. Lovely!
We arrived 20 mins late, but our table was still available, staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble
Excellent service and great quality food and drink as always.
Thoroughly enjoyable experience. Excellent service and food was delicious.
We ordered the mini cheeseburgers with artisan bread & olive tapenade plus a selection of cheeses.
Atmosphere early evening (17.30) was lively but not too noisy.
Good selection of drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic . We especially liked the sparking tea.
Will definitely visit again. Highly recommended.
As always a great gem within Fortnum & Mason, the service and quality of choice was good.
Wonderful place to while away a couple of hours
Amazing wine list!
Perfect food xx
I would normally have given Fortnum's wine bar five stars but on my last visit it did not maintain the normal five star quality, which was a pity as I had a guest. The food was good but not excellent like previous times and the ambience was quiet rather than the buzzy atmosphere it usually enjoys. May be because we were there at lunchtime.
A great place on a good day when everything is operating at its best.
It was a treat for our wedding anniversary to visit the wine bar. The staff were friendly, polite and knowledgeable, they were the perfect hosts from the moment we arrived. Their recommendations for wine and food were superb, my wife thoroughly enjoyed her glass(es) of Muscadet. Great touch with the piece of cake too , made our visit very special. Thank you for looking after us do well.
I was touched by the kindness of the staff. The food was perfect. I want to come back.
My favourite spot in central London to grab a glass of wine. Vast selection by the glass and lovely atmosphere
Good location, choice and service in a central location. Background music a little louder than it needed to be - otherwise a pleasant evening.
Food could of been hotter but overall really good experience.
We had a lovely table and very attentive service . Unfortunately the noise levels from other tables were really high and it was difficult to have a conversation. The wine and food were really good especially the mini burgers and the artisan bread.
Excellent service and delicious food, although our deserts were barely warm, would have liked them piping hot.
We have been visiting this bar for years and love the ambiance, however, the service is not up to the usual standard.
Made a reservation and for the third time the staff were unaware of this booking. Their on line system clearly showed the booking. I wonder why Fortnum even bother offering this service.
The manager did apologise and tried very hard to assist us thereafter but it was once more both disappointing and unprofessional.
It is always a true delight to return to Fortnum's Wine Bar. The attention and service is outstanding, and the wine selection is very good indeed. I miss the dressed crab on the meny, which was sublime and a perfect match with a glass of Puligny-Montrachet.
Visited the wine bar on a busy Saturday afternoon and had a really lovely glass of white wine (Fortnums Marlborough White) and shared some delicious oysters with a friend. Service fast and atmosphere was classy and chiq
We had a very enjoyable pre-concert supper, food was excellent!
Great service, yummy food, selected some amazing cheese for us to sample. The wine flight was a great idea, I would have liked to see an Australian/New Zealand selection.
A lovely visit. We were treated impeccably from the start and the lovely team acquiesced to my demands to provide a short message to my girlfriend for her anniversary.
My husband and I shopped and planned reservations for oysters and champagne. They had no oysters that day and really nothing else on the menu of any interest. Very disappointing. Wish we had gone to Harrods.
My first visit on recommendation from friends. Took my sister in law for her 40th birthday and we were greeted with a glass each of pink fizz which was a wonderful touch! We had a wine flight each which was lovely and it was a great way to spend an afternoon. Thanks F&M!
Fantastic food, drink and service
Lovely little area in the basement to get away from it all for a couple of quiet drinks and a snack.
I enjoyed a very pleasant lunch at the Wine Bar earlier this week. My friend and I shared a Parma ham with pickled figs dish and an avocado dip, both of which were tasty. The wine list is very good indeed and our favourites were the sparkling and Bacchus wines from Camel Valley vineyard in Cornwall. It's a very convenient stop off if you're enjoyi g a day's shopping or sightseeing in the city.
We always visit F&M when in London and decided to eat in the Wine Bar rather than go to a rather swish and expensive restaurant nearby. We weren't disappointed. Great service from the staff, in particular Alice from Lyon who was charming. Food - perfect for what we wanted - the crab rillettes and the trio of smoked salmon backed up by a very nice white wine made a simple snack so much more. Great ambience and not too expensive. Wasn't cheap but you get what you pay for. As always we shall be back again later in the year. Thank you F&M. Never change.
Excellent for special occasions, not cheap but worth it.
Excellent service and recommendations from our server. Bright and bubbly. Good atmosphere and great surroundings
Twice in 2 visits the bill was wrong as additional drinks had been added. Apart from that great as always.
Very disappointed with this visit to Fortnums wine bar. Artisan Breads were not very fresh.
Pasta was dry and sauce was congealed when served as though it had been sitting in an oven..not freshly cooked. We will try the wine bar again but will leave it for a while!
