The Best Wine Lists
Where can you find the best wine lists in London? Right here. A wine list can make or break a restaurant, especially at those high end spots where getting these kinds of thing right is so important. But it's not just the best restaurants that do it well in London - any self respecting venue puts considerable effort into their wine list, with varying degrees of success. Thankfully many get them spot on, but none more so than those listed below, where very good drops go hand in hand with equally fine fare.
L'Etranger Restaurant
36 Gloucester Road, South Kensington, London, SW7 4QT
This excellent Gloucester Road restaurant has what is without doubt one of the best wine lists in London - and it has the awards to prove it. It's certainly a huge wine list, but it's very well considered and surprisingly accessible, not least in the hands of some very capable sommeliers.

10 Greek Street
10 Greek Street, Soho, London, W1D 4DH
The wine list at Cameron Emirali's celebrated Soho venue is actually pretty small, but that's why it's so good. Serious thought has gone into what's on offer, with a regularly changing selection that includes nearly every single drop available by the glass and carafe. Oh, and the mark-ups are incredibly reasonable.

Clos Maggiore
33 King Street, Covent Garden, London, WC2E 8JD
This, like a few of the best wine lists in London, is so huge as to be actually pretty daunting. However, there are some genuine gems to be found, not least from the many, many pages dedicated to France. And although there are probably too many fine wines that cost a fortune, there are over fifty wines under £30, so it's a list that won't necessarily have you gasping for air.

High Timber
8 High Timber, City of London, London, EC4V 3PA
This fine spot right on the river not only has some of the best views, but also one of the very best wine lists in London. And that's pretty much primarily thanks to the fact that its founders are the guys behind the award-winning Jordan Wine Estate in South Africa. Expect lots of City suits, mind.

Coq d'Argent
No 1 Poultry, The City, London, EC2R 8EJ
Many of the D&D restaurants have excellent wine lists, but the wine list here at this City favourite is perhaps the best. Head sommelier Olivier Marie has put together an exhaustive selection of over 600 bottles, and whilst it might be a little bamboozling, it's also perfectly pitched for Mickael Weiss' very fine French fare.

Greenhouse
27a Hays Mews, Mayfair, London, W1J 5NY
Regularly voted as London's best wine list by those that know a thing or two about these things, the selection on offer at this brilliant little Mayfair restaurant is incredibly good. Sommelier Marc Piquet heads a team that can match their passion for wine with their expertise, so put yourself in their very capable hands and sample some seriously good drops.

Hakkasan Hanway Place
8 Hanway Place, Fitzrovia, London, W1T 1HD
Matching wine to the kind of cuisine knocked up at this celeb-heavy haunt isn't particularly easy, but they've done it with aplomb. It's certainly not the cheapest list but it works brilliantly - and you might even be able to get a couple of decent drops by the glass. Maybe.
