Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This Fleet Street spot has been keeping whistles whet for more than 135 years, having opened up back in 1879 – the year electric lighting was first introduced to London, remember? El Vino remains resolutely old-school, with dark wood dominating.

A 200-strong wine list features many lesser-known producers: a 2008 Viu Manent cabernet sauvignon, for example. The enterprise also operates as a wine shop and runs a delivery service.

And to eat? Small plates such as fried chilli chicken wings and padron peppers alongside larger plates including slow-cooked ox cheek in rioja and baked aubergine with buffalo mozzarella, artichoke, parmesan, basil and rocket. Mezze, charcuterie and cheese boards also feature.

El Vino says
The famous haunt of journalists and barristers – and immortalised as 'Pomeroys' by Rumpole of the Bailey – this wine bar and shop has a rich and colourful history. Delicious, full flavoured dishes using best quality ingredients have a Spanish slant and are accompanied by an extensive wine list .
