Humble Grape - Liverpool Street
Popped in here for a quick drink I with a friend before our trainn to the airport. Had the burrata and halloumi chips along with a glass of bubbles. It was all delicious and the service was so friendly. Would definitely return
Dangerous and appalling lack of care! Avoid at all costs if you have food allergies!!!
I booked to take my family to dinner and as my son has severe food allergies we asked the waitress to confirm that all of the dishes we had ordered were free from sesame. She checked with the chef and confirmed that there was no sesame in any of the dishes.
After 2 mouthfuls my sons throat started to swell and he felt very unwell. After 2 more questions to the chef the acting manager finally confirmed that one of the main ingredients for the dish was sesame. We had to call an ambulance as my son continued to get worse and he needed to be taken to A&E where he was treated overnight!
This was a very scary experience and one that should never have happened if the chef/staff had followed the basic and simple procedures that should, by law, have been in place!
The food was good but I came out later smelling badly of frying so I won’t go again. The food took too long to prepare for lunch in the city - about 25 mins.
Great find, Lucia was a fantastic host and the wines are on point. We shared their top 5 recommended plates and were not disappointed 👌🏻
Table for 2 we were initially given was a plank on a box, no room between tables, and my guest had bags with no where to put them, beware. Luckily there were tables free downstairs. The food was ok, could do with being hotter. The wine was great and service lovely
The waiting staff were absolutely lovely. Very attentive, polite and generally really nice.
The wines were very expensive, very little below £40 per bottle.
Food was tapas-style, and it was OK - nothing particularly outstanding, just OK. But the portions were very small and therefore rather expensive too.
This is a really nice venue close to Liverpool St. A relaxed ambience and professional, knowledgeable and personable staff who know their wine and are happy to recommend from the extended collection of bottles based on what you do or don't like.
Sharing plates are decent if unspectacular but you'd primarily come hear to have some nibbles with your wine - it's about the wine!
Great little find near Liverpool Street, friendly staff, food was nice - although most of the printed menu was unavailable
They know their wine! A n extensive wine selection is what Humble Grape is all about, but don't let that put you off. The staff know exactly what they are talking about and will narrow it down to a small selection for you. Small plates made the wine go down all that easier.
