    International Medium-Sized List of the Year 2022

    Trivet is in a beautiful, calm and minimalist space in Bermondsey, just over the river from the City of London. A joint venture between Isa Bal MS and chef Jonny Lake who met working at the Fat Duck, it’s creative and diverse fine dining with influences from all over. There is a bar space for drinking and snacking and a light-drenched, welcoming dining room. It’s a haven of cool, calm and quality in one of the capital’s most historic and urban neighbourhoods.

  3. Address: 4 Redchurch St, London

    International Medium-Sized List of the Year 2022

    New and rightfully popular Basque-inspired, wood-fired grill restaurant on the first floor above Smoking Goat (an equally excellent but separate entity – and Thai). Housed in a decommissioned East end strip club, it looks more like a smart old man’s London pub with wood panels and original features. Wine is obviously a focus – empty bottles sit above the front door and line the corridor to the stairs. The specialty is of course Turbot (Brat) alongside quality cuts of meat, whole game birds and clean, superlatively sourced sides – all simply but expertly cooked.

    Best Medium-Sized List of the Year UK, presented by Matteo Lupi Wines 2022

    Cabotte is a recent addition to the City in London and has a superb, long wine list majoring on the great wines of Burgundy. Set up by two Master Sommeliers (Xavier Rousset and Gearoid Devaney) along with the backing of some high profile Burgundian Growers, Cabotte lists about 1000 wines with 650 of those from Burgundy. But of course that still leaves plenty of room for other regions, whether it be a single vineyard Gruner or old, rare Madeira. It’s a smart but trendy space with two private dining rooms upstairs and very wine friendly European menu. Despite its location in the City and its foc...

    International Austrian Wine List of the Year, presented by Austrian wine 2022

    Newcomer is the home, shop and wine bar of Newcomer Wines, an importer of largely new wave Austrian wine producers, peppered with a few from Germany, Switzerland and France. The drink in and takeaway list is fleshed out further with wines from other importers. The interior and set up is functional and low key, with a small patio garden space for al fresco drinking when the British weather allows. They serve top quality cheese and charcuterie style snacks and often have guest chefs hosting dinners or cooking for a stint.

    Address: 39 Whitfield Street, Fitzrovia, London

    Best Medium-Sized List of the Year UK, presented by Matteo Lupi Wines 2022

    Noizé is a smart and warm French bistro in central Fitzrovia. Named after the tiny village of Noizé in the Loire Valley, where sommelier and owner Mathieu Germond grew up, there’s a dining room on the ground floor and a basement bar/events space. Having spent years previously at Michelin stalwart Pied à Terre, Mathieu’s wine list reflects a vast knowledge and broad, skilful buying. Prices are very reasonable – glasses start at £4.20, bottles at £24. There’s a list with of around 100 references of ‘everyday wines’ from ‘house’ to around £80, then a slightly larger fine wine list, separated by...

    Special Jury Prize UK 2022

    Sager + Wilde put the cool and the hip into London’s wine bar scene back in 2013, following a successful pop up the year before. The interior has elements of both wine and cocktail bar, housed in a small converted East End pub on trendy Hackney Road. The staff is knowledgeable, passionate and very relaxed. The wine list features lots of interesting options by the glass and a keenly priced long reserve list of some of the great and most interesting wines on offer in London today. To eat there’s cheese, charcuteries, and their famous grilled chilled sandwich. All in all, a really fun place that’...

    The Five Fields restaurant is in the heart of Chelsea, London, with a classic and elegant decor. The menus offer prix fixe and tasting options for both lunch and dinner, and use seasonal ingredients sourced from their own kitchen gardens in East Sussex. The wine list at The Five Fields is extensive and classic, and includes large formats and back vintages from the 80’s and 90’s. Classic French regions are the main focus, but you can still find superb wines from further afield including Central Europe, the new world and even China.
