Venture down a narrow passage, minutes from the hustle and bustle of Liverpool Street, and you stumble upon what, on first glance, looks like a shopfront. Inside, the wood panelling, hessian-clad walls and wine related artifacts create a genuine, warm atmosphere, enhanced by the knowledgable and friendly staff. Our chef prepares delicious dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner focusing on top quality British classics to superfood salads, smaller plates and sandwiches. Our eclectic inventory of wines from old & new worlds is impressive and many are available by the glass.

Booked a table in the downstairs restaurant for a business dinner due to the fact that it has previously been a quiet restaurant environment. A party of 20 people were shown into the 'supposed restaurant' just for drinks, no food. Three tables were pushed together and amid the photo taking and drinking the noise levels became very high. We quickly finished our food and moved upstairs where it was quieter. I complained to the manager on the night who was not interested and did not make any apology.

Convenient location and cheerful service. Food seemed good quality, but a couple of frugal plates and an OK bottle of wine at £75 was on reflection perhaps not exceptionally good value.

Sadly disappointed. After previously reviewing Grape shots and giving them a raving review following a couple of visits, our last two visits have been exceptionally disappointing on all levels. On our most recent visit the food quality was poor, particularly the unacceptably bland and supermarket basic roast beef sandwich as well as the service. In particular the current manager is rude and unhelpful. I recently had a booking cancelled (without my knowledge) only to arrive to find the chef had gone home early. There was not even an apology for the issues with the booking. On the most recent visit interactions with the manager we not only uncaring but he seemed off put to even have diners in the restaurant.

I decided to take my partner out for a bite to eat after he successfully passed an audition. I wanted somewhere close to Liverpool st station (it's a 5 minute walk).
The layout and ambience is similar to others in the Davy's chain. it gives the impression of a warm old fashioned inn.
The choice of wines by the glass is generous and interesting although a bit more old world than new. In the ent we settled on a glass of Riesling Trockrn from the Moselle. Only slightly off dry, crisp, mine rally and good with food.
We had a starter and a main. Mine was potted shrimp, my partners goats cheese salad. We both had confit of duck. I had mine with bean sauce, which reminded me of a cassoulet. It was delicious. My partner asked for an alternative, ( he has an allergy) and without any fuss they produced a potatoe alternative. The wine, as expected went well with all courses. The service was friendly and relaxed.
Together with s coffee and tip this came to about £65.
I am probably not the first to observe that this like a number of areas of London have changed, largely for the better.
I can happily recommend this as an enjoyable reasonably priced place to eat.

I cannot believe I have never been here before. The ambience was fantastic. There are lots of veggie options too. The food was lovely and very reasonable. The staff were friendly and efficient. I will definitely be going back and recommending to lots of friends.

I'm a fan of the Davys wine bar chain. Booked this for a business lunch and it is smaller than other Davys I've been to. Tables packed very close. Great wine list as ever and would return for drinks or an intimate supper but not for a business function.

Lovely food and service and excellent beer. I would comment however the location was very quiet and the chairs not very comfy. Because of this observation it look like it lent is way to more of a drinking pub.

Although difficult because the good was different and good too.
