More about Boot and Flogger, London

The Latin motto of London’s Worshipful Company of Vintners is vinum exhilarat animum, or wine cheers the spirit. We can only agree, but we might add that if you are searching for a unique wine tasting experience – or a sumptuous banquet – you can’t go past Davy’s Boot and Flogger, the original London wine bar. Operating since the early 1960s, and with the privilege of being London’s first wine bar to be granted Free Vintner status by the venerable guild of the Worshipful Company of Vintners, Davy’s Boot and Flogger down historic Redcross Way is a leader in the wine bar scene. And Davy’s Boot and Flogger’s remit doesn’t end with an incredible cellar of fine wine. Davy’s Boot and Flogger also play host to elaborate, luxurious banquets, with several dining rooms available for private hire.

If you’ve settled on Davy’s Boot and Flogger for your next private function, you can choose from 5 distinct rooms in this heritage building in which to dine. The Red Room has the atmosphere of a gentleman’s home, seating up to 20 people at a mahogany dining table amongst antique furnishings and a dedicated bar. The Green Room sports green hessian-clad wall, a private room that opens out to a larger dining and entertainment area again with a dedicated bar. The Boardroom is suffused with old world charm – watched over by a grandfather clock, this smaller space is ideal for meetings or intimate gatherings. The Ovens retains the look and feel of a stately country kitchen, complete with stone floors and exposed wooden beams – with doors leading to a private courtyard and a long dining table that can seat 30, this is Davy’s Boot and Flogger’s premium space for serious entertaining. Finally, if the summer is treating you well, you can hire the outdoor area for al fresco wining and dining.
