Absolutely stunning food, staff and decor. The staff couldn’t do enough for me being gluten free. Highly recommended. Travelled from Plymouth to experience as heard such great things about it.
Good food served by friendly staff - excellent visit all round
Very nice food and a lovely old pub but the service was terrible... we arrived early and were seated at our table for a drink... After waiting about 15 minutes my husband went to the bar to get our drinks. We were not given any menus and eventually my husband went to help himself to the menu and went back to the bar for more drinks... we did wonder if it wad table service! the two tables next to us were empty when we arrived but when they were seated they got service before us. Eventualy one of the staff took our order but in a very functional way and it seemed strange that the 'Mananger' was wearig a suit and the serving staff looked very scruffy. Its a shame as the food when it arrived was lovley. There are loads of resturants in this area and too much choice to go back to this one... We are locals as we live in Shad Thames and perhaps this is a tourist place and it doesnt need regular diners?
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.
