Le Beaujolais

Bars and pubs, Wine bars Covent Garden
4 out of 5 stars
(4user reviews)

A long-standing wine bar and restaurant on Litchfield Street, Le Beaujolais is well known for its selection of French wines and cheeses. The restaurant downstairs is a members' only venue but the ground floor bar is open to all.

The food menu ranges from charcuterie boards, homemade quiches and pâté to boeuf bourguignon and hachis parmentier - a French shepherd's pie. The cheese trolley features between 20 and 30 varieties sourced direct from France each week.

The wine list is exclusively French, and broken down by region. Nineteen are available by the glass and a further seven available by the half-bottle. Keep an eye out for the wine of the month too - it's up on the blackboard, with the daily specials.

I was invited here on a first date and didn't really know what to expect - all I was told is it's a wine bar usually filled with old men. Sounds delightful, I thought. And it pretty much was! Packed full of a slightly more mature crowd, but still with a few younger wine drinkers dotted around the place, my date had nabbed us a table and got the drinks in. the bar is like an old, proper pub and there's a slight air of pretence about the place as there are what looks like rugby or varsity style ties hanging from the ceiling, almost like the trophies of all the privately educated men they've had in the bar. I quite like that.

Though out of season, I can confirm their pale rosé is quite delicious. As is the cheese which we ordered after getting food envy from our table neighbours.  I don't know how much it cost us as my date insisted on paying but I'd assume quite reasonable.

Tucked away in Soho, not far from china town. The place has an old English pub feel and a little dates which adds the atmosphere. I expected more from the wine choices and admittedly did not enjoy the one that I decided to try.


Didn't have any food as it was late and they had stopped serving food, this maybe be a school boy error as appears to have a good reviews. Company was good and relaxed atmosphere. 


Le Beaujolais is simply an amazing place in the heart of Soho - although when you enter it you feel like you're in the most typical Parisian bistro and totally forget about London. 

The (French) owner is at the bar and discusses football and politics with everyone, mostly members of the 'club' and regular customers, which gives the place a familiar and laid-back ambiance. The bric-a-brac decoration gives you a lot to watch and read as well!

The wine list offers a great selection, and the cheese and charcuterie platters are just insane! Not to mention the other pates and rillettes, to die for. All of that for a fairly reasonable price. Plus you get some fresh French baguette, which is impossible to find in London. 

The place is small and always packed, so don't go there if you want a quiet and intimate evening. 

I recommend this place for all occasions! Friday afterwork drinks, date, or watching a football game with friends!


This place is great. Tucked away just off Cambridge Circus, going in to Le Beaujolais allows you to escape from the frenetic pace of Central London. The wine list is excellent and the food traditional French fare. This place is no frills so if you're looking to escape to a low key dark enclave and while away the hours with good company over a glass or two of quality French Malbec or Merlot then this is the place for you. Beware time can evaporate in Le Beaujolais and before you know it you've spent 2 hours in there!
