    A nice place with a good wine selection tucked away in a Lane off Fleet Street. Slightly overpriced but the food was good. They were slightly short staffed as there were only 2 people around.

    I have eaten here a number of times and always enjoy it. On this occasion we have a pairing with a flight, which wasn't really a pairing - the food and particular wines didn't quite match up. Also, the sharing meat platter that used to be a go to has disappeared off the menu. Very sad. Please bring it back.

    Awesome self tasting experience. Came here with my father for his birthday, shared some of the delicious tapas style small plates. Staff were very friendly and even arranged for complimentary champagne for when we arrived. Each organic wine was something we'd never tried before and they were all incredible! Would recommend visiting on a Monday as you can buy one of the bottles we tried in their shop. Great experience would definitely come again!

    Great food, nice venue - but food took way too long to come out. I understand it was very busy, but it's the Christmas season now and that should easily be foreseen. They did however offer a discount off the bill to make up for that, unprompted - which is fair. Overall, a good spot.

    Humble Grape Fleet StreetResponded on December 12, 2022Hey Breen, Thanks for your feedback, we really appreciate it! As I mentioned in my response to Alice, that day was very hard on the team as the most senior members (including myself) were out of action due to a wave of flu, which left the junior team members working incredibly hard and long hours, tired, but doing their best. Please feel free to contact me directly on carlos@humblegrape.co.uk so I can make a more meaningful apology. Kind regards, Carlos

    Food was nice but we had to wait over 1h for it. One in our party had to leave without being able to try his food. When confronted, some of the staff were helpful but most didn't really seem like they were trying to help the situation, merely made excuses. It honestly felt almost entirely down to poor management, which is a real shame. Probably won't go again although the venue and food were fine.

    Humble Grape Fleet StreetResponded on December 12, 2022Hey Alice, Thanks for your feedback. I'm sorry you didn't have a great experience with us in your last visit. A considerable part of our senior team was put out of action because a sudden wave of illness, leaving the more junior team members working incredibly long hours, tired, but doing their best. I'd love the chance to regain your confidence in our service so please feel free to contact me directly on carlos@humblegrape.co.uk so I can make a more meaningful apology. Regards, Carlos

    We used to get advices on wines whenever we were lurking in the wine shop area looking for the next bottle. We were a group of 5 and ordered 4 bottles- apart from the first bottle of Prosecco, we chose the wines ourselves. No one approached us or asked if we wanted any advice. This was previously the charm of this place, with staff enthusiastically recommending their favourites. Not any more, which is a shame.

    Service was a bit slow, and the selection of sharing plates we ordered came out one after the other rather than all at once which was a bit odd. The food and wine were both delicious and very good value for the location. Would come again.

    Really interesting venue, hard to find but once inside nice and quiet and relaxed. Front door had been damaged which didnt make the best impression walking in. Service was good, menu is good, good combinations and tapas style food. Good wine menu as you would expect. We found a hair in one of our food plates hence we cant mark food as good - wasnt a good end to the meal which we had enjoyed up until that point.

    We'd had a bad experience in another Humble Grape venue, and they gave us a voucher to apologise. We used the voucher at the Fleet Street venue and it was amazing - they gave us a bottle of prosecco to start on the house, and they were really attentive the whole time we were with them. We all agreed the wine was incredible, and the food we had was also amazing. Really lovely evening.

    Went for drinks only. It’s a really nice place to enjoys the great variety of wine that this establishment offers. The service however was not great. Waiting staff were not at all attentive. It was an effort to get their attention when ordering another glass. I would expect better service when paying £15 per glass and probably won’t return for this reason.

    Dreadful experience! The waiter poured wine all over my husband and then dropped plates and cutlery. We had to remind them about our drinks orders twice in order to actually receive our wine. This place has really gone downhill I’m afraid to say.

    We were almost completely ignored throughout the meal by the waiters and waitresses. Whenever I wanted more drinks for my table I had to go to the bar. Why can’t the servers habitually (say every 5-10 mins) simply ask a table if they would like any more drinks, etc? Seems so simple but it makes a big difference.

    Great place with great wines. Mondays mean you can buy wines at retail / take home price which is worthwhile - tried a lovely rose Cremant from the Alsace. They have such lovely selection of wine that you don’t see in other places. Refreshing!

    Very solid and enjoyable after work wine bar to catch up with an old mate. Some elements of the service require a bit of polish but manager explained they had a number of new staff who were still training. An easy and fun evening. Job done.
