The Wine Circle

Independent Wine & Spirit Merchants specialising in wines from across the world with a Restaurant & Bar attached.

Over 400 Club Members enjoy this unique concept with many benefits including the advantage of buying their wines from our wine shop and drinking them in the Restaurant with no corkage. This very special benefit allows Club Members to consume fine wines at remarkably low costs compared to other restaurants.

Non Club Members can enjoy the same benefit with a £10 corkage.

Regular wine dinners are held with guest speakers from around the world and free tastings are held every Saturday.

Trips to wineries across Europe are organised 2 / 3 times a year which gives customers the chance to follow the wine making process from grape to bottle.

Trips include visits to vineyards, tastings, winery tours and the chance to visit some of the most historic wine regions.

Join us to experience this truly unique food & wine experience.
