    Address: 66 Knightsbridge, London

    California Wine List of the Year UK, presented by The California Wine Institute 2021

    Dinner by Heston is the two Michelin starred restaurant in the luxurious Mandarin Oriental hotel in Knightsbridge. The menu is a twist on the more common ’classic fine dining with a modern edge’ by being ‘modern fine dining with a historical edge’ – each dish annotated by the decade/century from which it originated, reinventing and updating food fashions from as far back as the 1700’s. The interior is slick and professional with plenty of 5-star warmth. The overall experience marries posh with playful; it’s original yet comfortingly accessible.

They were justly awarded their second star in 2018 which they have maintained ever since.

    Address: Shoreditch Town Hall, 380 Old Street, London

    The list at the 2-Star The Clove Club (two-star) stetches close to 800 references, yet doesn’t feel remotely unwieldy, no bottle unnecessary. Wines from all over the world are given their chance to shine; the very best producers at all price points have been selected. Showcasing a mixture of classics with age and newcomers/rising stars, there is a focus on small growers and organic and biodynamic producers where possible, but not for their own sake. Wine pairings are offered (including one interspersed with ambient brewed rare teas). By the glass offers plenty of interest—fine wines and older...

    Pied a Terre is an enduring stalwart of classy, contemporary French fine dining – the longest standing independent Michelin-starred restaurant in the UK no less – yet one that has moved with the times and their global wine list is as sharp as you’d expect. Buying en primeur year on year coupled with meticulous storage affords them depth and to list wines only when ready – and there’s plenty at all price points with some age (a rarity of lists these days). Stylistically everything is covered with aplomb, with an unsurprising focus on French wines (not to mention a concise but top-drawer Cali...

    Address: 113 Great Portland Street, London

    Best Short List of the Year UK 2021

    The wine list at one-star Portland is given just as much attention as the menu and changes almost as frequently.

  12. 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.

    Address: 2 Bellevue Rd, London

    German Wine List of the Year UK, presented by Wines of Germany 2022

    A long-time favourite of Londoners, all of whom are very willing to make the journey out to leafy Wandsworth (not as far as you think) for the timeless and consistently excellent Chez Bruce. They say it best: “from the outset, it was our intention to serve the very best food and drink but within a relaxed, informal yet thoroughly professionally orchestrated environment”. Sharing a co-owner with La Trompette, The Glasshouse and The Ledbury the wine cellar is impressive. The list is extensive – classic French and Italian regions dominate but Portugal, Spain, Islands, Central Europe and the New W...

    Address: Tea Building, 56 Shoreditch High St, London

    Lyle’s is a stylish ‘new British’ restaurant in Shoreditch, on the London City fringes. Housed in a converted factory that’s also home to a top ad agency, the room is a simple, clean and flooded with light toward the obviously high spec yet unshowy open kitchen. It has a functional but sleek interior (Ercol chairs, natural wood tables) with nothing unnecessary in sight, creating a calm space and puts the focus on the food and wine.

  18. Phone: +44 20 7739 4443

    Address: 18 Phipp St, London

    Best Short List of the Year UK 2021

    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...

In the summer the terrace doors open onto Blandford Street, creating an almost alfresco ambiance. They take wine seriously here, and have spent time and energy sourcing bottles to s...
