About Hill & Szrok

A unique venue – a whole carcass, rare breed butchers shop by day that turns into a neighbourhood restaurant and wine bar by night. It’s tiny inside with bar stools around a perimeter dining ledge and the shared table/butcher's block in the centre.

Unsurprisingly it’s meat-focused with a selection of tasty, seasonal sides and snacks. It’s an original and ideal spot for an informal but quality-driven supper. The simple yet skilful cooking allows the unexpectedly brilliant wine list to shine. A real gem.

About the Hill & Szrok Wine List

The wine list has grown over the last few years to around 200-250 bins. There is a natural/low intervention angle but nothing dogmatic or superficial. Wines come from France, Spain and Italy, by the best small producers each country has to offer.

It reads with a sense of real passion and discovery; particularly of note are the older vintages, not to mention fantastic prices across the board.

More recommendations

  • This is my favourite category to judge. To build a smart wine list of this size, where every wine lover will find something to drink at a reasonable price, is a real challenge. The level was very high among all the finalists. Hill & Szrok has a more natural path, but a very mature take on it, where they don't forget the classics. A very good balance, and to find wines like this for these prices is just fantastic, says jury member Pascaline Lepeltier about the winner of Best Short Wine List 2021.
