Review on The Wine Bar, Fortnum & Mason
The Wine Bar nestles within the Fresh Food Hall of that iconic establishment Fortnum and Mason, renowned as purveyors of fine foods, hampers, teas and wine. The bar was designed by the talented David Collins Studio who were also responsible for the restoration and renovation of the Wolseley.
This chilled out venue is a popular destination for after work gatherings and pre-theatre goers with the gentle sound of the live jazz guitar. There is a superb variety of wines by the bottle, glass or flight, the latter is particularly good value consisting of three glasses of wine for you to taste, compare and share. Alternatively the wine department is adjacent to the bar and for something special you can choose from their extensive list for only a £10 corkage fee.
The menu has been designed by chef Shaun Hill focussing on foods from the Food Hall and you might choose caramelised onion tart with Gruyere crust or dressed Yorkshire crab and garlic mayonnaise amongst the starters. Follow on with beetroot cured, traditional gravadlax, London smoked salmon, carved Iberico ham and cornichons or if you really want to push the boat out there's
Aquitaine Caviar on the menu.
