Amuse Bouche

Critics' choice
Anglesea Arms
Parsons Green

Dedicated to the democratisation of champagne (although the residents of Parsons Green hardly qualify as the great unwashed), Amuse Bouche has hit on a winning formula: a list of 40 or so champagnes ā€“ including at least eight available by the glass ā€“ that are served in relaxed, modern surroundings.

The prices are admirably restrained, but with such specialisation it would be good to see some of the exciting champagnes being produced by the new wave of growers, rather than the big brands to which Amuse Bouche sticks so resolutely.

Food is restricted to tapas-style nibbles on a global theme (wun tuns, mini fish ā€™nā€™ chips, plates of cured meats); the champagnes are supplemented by a small selection of non-sparkling wines. On warm weekend evenings, the windows open on to the street and the champagne cocktails flow happily.

fantastic, food is amazing, now with Chef's that have come from Michelin Star backgrounds but without the price. Recommend to anyone. Great drinks selection as well. Champagne is actually affordable and St Mungos beer on tap fantastic, never seen it before.
