Wine Wharf
© Scott Wishart

Vinopolis’s Wine Wharf inhabits a reclaimed Victorian warehouse located just by Borough Market, all exposed brickwork, high-ceilinged industrial chic and big leather sofas spread over two storeys (half of the upper one being given over to diners).

You could drink very well here from the 300-bin list that stretches to a 1953 d’Yquem (a mere £916.50 a bottle) and some serious prestige cuvée champagnes. However, with over half the wines available by the glass, this is a great opportunity to experiment. The wine list is organised by country and price rather than region or style, which can make navigation somewhat difficult, but the staff generally know their stuff.

Bar bites and sharing platters are available, together with more substantial dishes in the restaurant upstairs. Wine-phobes may find more appealing drinks a stone’s throw away at beer-themed sister operation Brew Wharf.

The bar has a great selection of wines by the glass, and fairly inexpensive meals. It is not the most glamourous place you will have been to - somewhere to meet up with your former uni mates, rather than take out a date.


Total LACK OF HOSPITALITY, I will never come back to this place and DONT recommend at all! I bought a very expensive bottle of wine after 10 pm and no one from the bar said to us that they would close in less than 30 minutes!!!!!! Maybe because they simply decided that…. The place has a great potential to be an amazing venue but with this unhappy staff and terrible policy with the clients I would say to not spend your time and money there , plenty other options around. Attention to the rude Russian girl in the team, come on Mister Manager do something about this lady!!


Although the location and building/decor is great, on a Wednesday night it was virtually deserted so little atmosphere. The wine list is extensive so no issues there. We wanted to eat and went upstairs to the restaurant where there were no staff and only a few of the tables had a menu on and were laid. After a while a member of staff came up and took our order. The food was OK but not great. My main complaint is that at about 10pm they decided they wanted to close so told us on a number of occasions that we needed to leave, even to the extent of following us into the toilet to say we had to go now. Although the staff, were pretty good with taking our order etc I found this total lack of hospitatility at the end of the evening rude and unnecessary, certainly not welcoming when we were just trying to finish our drinks and I thought this was London not some in the middle of nowhere country pub.
