    Best Medium-Sized List of the Year UK, presented by Luigi Bosca 2024

    Small but perfectly formed, Blandford Comptoir is a slick little wine bar on a stylish Marylebone street. The contemporary Mediterranean menu showcases well-sourced ingredients with a selection of meat, seafood, raw and vegetable small and large plates, all designed to be wine friendly. The list mid-sized list has a particular focus on the Rhone, plus a nice range of Champagnes. Burgundy and Italy also well represented, with a splattering of Spain, Central Europe and New World. It's the sister bar of Comptoir Mayfair, also worth a visit. Blandford Comptoir is ideal for a quick glass (or three)...

  4. Address: 4 Redchurch St, London

    Best Medium-Sized List of the Year UK, presented by Luigi Bosca 2024

    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.

    Address: 8th Floor, Blackfriars House Saint Marys, Climat, Parsonage, Manchester

    Best Medium-Sized List of the Year UK, presented by Luigi Bosca 2024

    A wine-led rooftop restaurant in Manchester city centre, Climat is the younger sibling to Chester’s Covino. The talented chef describes the food as ‘Parisian ex pat’, a nod to his time spent in the cosmopolitan kitchens of the French capital. You can build the meal you want from the ‘snacks’ and ‘plates’ before moving onto dessert and cheese, a flexible approach to happily enable drinking. The wine list is a 400+ strong collection of bottles from around the world, with an extra lean into their favourite region of Burgundy. For a list of this size it really hits the mark in terms of balance,...

  8. Phone: +44 20 7739 4443

    Address: 18 Phipp St, London

    Best Medium-Sized List of the Year UK, presented by Luigi Bosca 2024

    Leroy is a wine bar & restaurant in London's Shoreditch from Sommeliers Ed Thaw and Jack Lewens. It opened shortly after their original venture Ellory in Hackney closed in March of 2018. As well as sharing a name with two great producers (Richard in the Loire, Lalou in Burgundy) Leroy was serendipitously one of their pet names for Ellory, since many people were unable to pronounce it correctly. Inside it’s light but cosy, simply decorated with some elegant wine prints on the wall. The menu aims for simplicity and flavour – food that is thoughtful but not showy. Leroy is a place to stop in for...

  9. Phone: +44 20 3141 8670

    Address: 36 Snowsfields, London

    Best Medium-Sized List of the Year UK, presented by Luigi Bosca 2024

    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.

  10. Phone: +44 161 477 5744

    Address: 7 Rostron Brow, Stockport

    Best Medium-Sized List of the Year UK, presented by Luigi Bosca 2024

    Housed on the first floor of a former coffee warehouse in Stockport Old Town, just outside Manchester, Where The Light Gets In is a special and unique experience. With only 30 seats and an intimate open plan space with the kitchen team as much part of the evening as anyone else (or lunch on Saturdays). As many ingredients as possible come from their farm and as such it's a set tasting menu only. Nature, sustainability and organic nourishment are key, with a light and hyper seasonal Nordic (or perhaps Northern?) slant.

  11. Phone: +44 20 8191 0704

    Address: 8 Elystan Street, London

    By the Glass List of the Year UK 2024

    Wild Corner is the wine bar little sister to Wild Tavern across the road. It’s small and cosy yet glamourous - well suited to its very smart address in Chelsea/South Kensington. For somewhere small the wine list is long – an incredible 200 bottles are available by the glass (or carafe) with vintages spanning decades (the 1939 Pichon Lalande has sadly just sold out). The menu is produce led; a reduced version of that they serve over the road, simply cooked top quality ingredients that let the wine shine. Fresh langoustines and raw fish, Gillardeau oysters, beef tartare, USDA Sirloin, charcu...
