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 – including at least eight available by the glass – 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 ’n’ 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.

Would give one star if I could. Booked a table for a birthday online and was also told over the phone the table was secured. Day before the birthday party, was emailed saying that there were no table for us but we were welcome to stand at the bar! Wrote them an email asking what happened to our table, and for them to fix it. No response. They didn’t care we complained. We had to move the entire party of people to another venue. I did like this place generally, but as a long term customer who’s been going there for a while, this behaviour was so unprofessional and unacceptable. The worst part was their arrogance and complete disregard for the mistake they made and the inconvenience it caused us. I suppose when a bar has a steady rate of patrons, they don’t need to care about their reputation for how they treat people. Be wary if you’re going to try to book something, it’s not likely they’ll look after you if there are any complications.
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.
