We love English wine, and all that comes with enjoying wine: good food, good friends, good conversation. We take pride in our selection of wines, and in presenting you with arguably London’s most extensive range of English wines by the glass. We welcome you to sample those wines through either our seasonal wine tasting flights or with help from our team. We also stock a cracking selection of local beers and spirits too. Food is there to make the wines even more enjoyable! Try some British cheeses and meats with your choice of wine or go along with the wine matches on our main menu.

    I Took my girlfriend for her birthday, her favourite wine is the Balfour Liberty. St Bart pub had sold out and do not expect to get anymore before April. This isnt a problem however being that a lot of people go their especially for that wine I wish they had sent an email out just to inform. Could have been handled much more professionally. Also, Awful music!

    We came up to London for an exhibition and a concert in the evening, we booked a table at the Balfour as it was close to the concert venue, not knowing what to expect, what a wonderful surprise we had, we were greeted as if we were old long-standing customers. The restaurant was not busy at the time but soon became a place of vibrancy, we had a table on the balcony overlooking the main area and people watched those below, while we ate. We came to the conclusion that we were by far the eldest people there, it was so nice to see so many people enjoying themselves. The food and wine was fantastic some of the best lamb we have ever eaten, the wine came from a vineyard close to where we live, but we did not know it existed, English wine at its best. We cannot give enough praise to the staff they were kind and attentive and polite

    it was quiet on a Tuesday lunchtime - made it great to for catching up with old friends. Nice ambience and decor and the food was delicious. My crab starter was fresh and zingy, and the fishcake was lovely. Others enjoyed theirs too - would definitely recommend.

    Il Servizio è professionale, ma purtroppo ci hanno proposto un piatto del giorno che abbiamo ordinato e alla fine non era disponibile. Ho preso un pudding e la carne all’interno era davvero dura. Menu con poca scelta soprattutto nel cibo. Sconsigliato
