Lady of the Grapes
To ensure each and every customer has a delightful epicurean experience while supporting female winemakers. We see more and more women taking the lead and being in charge of vineyards, so let's shine a light on them within this industry traditionally male-dominated.

Food was quite simple , but with fresh ingredients and well- cooked , imaginatively presented. I was lunching alone , so had wines by the glass : the Cullen Mangan 2014 was majestic , the Chateau Filhot was rich , sumptuous ( but never overwhelming) and complemented my dessert beautifully . Atmosphere in the restaurant was delightful - in the style of a small, French bistro , but truly for wine lovers ! Thank you for an unforgettable lunch ( for an oenophile ) , I will be back soon !
I very nice and cosy atmosphere, with a nice menu and good wine selection.
Wonderful find. I knew I'd stumbled upon a great place just by having a glance at the wonderful wines on the shelf. 70% of the wines are made by women, and most are either organic, natural or biodynamic - and all are very unique and from small independents. The food is excellent too - the charcuterie is well selected and all have bundles of flavour. It is a little on the pricey side, with not a huge range of options below #30 per bottle, but the quality is there. Definitely give this place a go if you like food and wine, you will not be disappointed.
Delicious, creative sharing plates accompany the leading lady: wine. We drank by the glass so as to taste as many different kinds as possible. Wine list has a cool focus on female winemakers. Terrific selection - everything we tasted was great. It gets very loud when full and ou have to smile brightly to get noticed by staff at busy moments
But when we were noticed, the staff were delightful. Can’t wait to get back there!
Very buzzy little bar. Great staff and service, but food very overpriced. Cheese platter for £15 came with 3 tiny smidges of cheese. Eat somewhere else and just enjoy the wine and ambience.
Small and intimate wine bar with a good choice by the glass and an emphasis on ecological produce. Very nice food (we had artichoke barigoule and Jerusalem artichoke salad). Well-informed and friendly staff.
Great place open near to my work. Needed a quiet place for a late night meeting and often many establishments have noisy customers and blaring music so this is a real gem to be somewhere respectfully quiet yet still flowing in terms of footfall. I will definitely be back.
PLEASE NOTE: I GAVE ONE STAR FOR FOOD AS I DID NOT DINE THERE BUT COULD NOT SUBMIT REVIEW WITHOUT GIVING STARS TO ALL CATEGORIES. THERE WAS NO 'N/A' OPTION.
Overall a good experience. The guest lady a producer herself was a very nice touch offering a taste of her sparkling wine.
The choice of food is limited and the wines are on the expensive side but its a cute and nice warm place.
The idea of the women in wine is very inspired.
Lovely little spot and great combination of wine from female producers and organic wines. Place is small and so space is tight. When the bar seats were taken up and all seats at tables allocated, there was no way to get to the washroom without someone shifting their seats.
Lovely little wine bar, which as I understand was set up as a crowd funded venture to support female winemakers specialising in natural and biodynamic wines. Great selection of these with delicious food to boot that ventures way beyond the staples of charcuterie and fromage (though these are on offer!). I particularly enjoyed the grapefruit and roasted artichoke salad - with a portion that went just nicely beyond the ‘small plates’ phenomenon.
LOVE that Lady of the Grapes is supporting women in wine. Really enjoyed the wines and food!
Would have definitely appreciated more choice of wines below £30-40. Food was v. good and the atmosphere and decoration etc were perfect.
Loved the atmosphere in this little bar/restaurant where we ate delicious tapas-style food including cheese, salami, a lovely tart and gravlax. Our waiter was friendly and helpful, and it was a very relaxed way to spend the evening. A great place for dinner, but also to pop in for a drink and a snack at any time of day. Highly recommend, I hope to go back soon.
