Dear diners, please be aware that tables on this restaurant’s terrace cannot be reserved. These tables are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Since The Brackenbury Wine Rooms opened its doors on the corner of Hammersmith Grove and Amor Street in 2009, Hammersmith’s dining, drinking and entertainment scene has changed – it certainly wouldn’t be the same without this neighbourhood wine bar doling out its tapas-style bar food and fuss-free European and British cuisine, with a wine pairing suggestion for every dish. Not to mention the loss the west London community would feel – oenophiles and casual tipplers alike – without The Brackenbury Wine Rooms’ expansive yet considered offering of 150 bottles and 40 wines by the glass.
As the name would suggest, the piece de resistance at The Brackenbury Wine Rooms is its well-stocked wine cellar. Here in Hammersmith the proprietors of one of London’s most revered wine bar families – there are sister outlets in Notting Hill and Fulham – have gone to great lengths to ensure that very bottle and bin, every drop offered by-the-glass, is selected for its ability to showcase the distinctive qualities of its terroir. The careful curatorial process at work behind the scenes at The Brackenbury Wine Rooms is perhaps best understood when you book for one of the regular wine tasting events held at the wine bar’s Hammersmith Grove address, but even a casual glass to accompany a plate of tapas or a full evening meal will offer confirmation in equal measure.
The same commitment to the provenance of the wine that makes it to table (quality in the glass in maintained by the use of Enomatic wine dispensers) extends to the care that The Brackenbury Wine Rooms takes to ensure the quality of its offering across the board. It’s not all wine at this Hammersmith wine bar – the beer is from a brewery in south London’s Greenwich, gin and vodka comes courtesy of a boutique distillery down the road in Hammersmith. As for the food, you can expect aged Scottish beef, Cornish crab, Gressingham duck, british cheeses from Neal’s Yard in Covent Garden, and acorn-fed Spanish jamon and other premium ingredients to make an appearance on the bar plate or a la carte menus. And, once you’ve enjoyed the perfect pairing of wine and fine European and British food, every bottle is available to buy and take home.
Love it here. Great wine, more natural wines than ever and most of the staff know what they’re talking about and the food was good too. Recommended.
Amazing team And so experienced with wine. Atmosphere is very relaxed and you can walk easily wearing jeans no make up and trainers. Food beautiful presented
Really an amazing place ! Excellent wine and lovely personnel ! With friends or with your boyfriend you should definitely go there !! Thank you for the evening !
Amazing service and food! I had to reschedule my reservation. The team here were more than happy to find a solution to accommodate. Would highly recommend this place!
The amospere of the place is lovely, and the concept of the wine 'on tap' is quite cool. The food was delicious, we had the salmon crab tartare and the cote de beuf for 2. However, while we thought we'd take advantage of the opportunity to try different wines, we tried about 5 of their red wines and didn't like any of them. I don't know if it's the way they are stored that distorts the flavours, or just their selection of wines that didn't match our taste. In general the wines were quite overpriced (especially the tasters and glasses), but we were disappointed by their quality more than the price. For a place that prides themselves for being a wine bar, probably a good idea to increase the variety of their reds and QC their wines after storage.
Food was really delicious and nice wine thankfully! Felt a bit expensive but overall happy! Service was attentive with the perfect pace. It was our friends birthday (which we did inform them about) so it's a shame they didn't bring out something small for her with a candle which I always experienced in other restaurants. But can't fault somewhere on this basis. We did get a lovely booth/table despite short notice booking. Would return and recommend!!
Food was really good and waiter (owner) was apologetic for 'sloppy service' that we hadn't even noticed, even comped us a side and removed service charge. 2nd visit for me and 1st for my 3 friends but we will all be back very soon...we need to try more wine!!!
This restaurant never fails to deliver. I am a regular, so I get given my favourite table without even asking. The wines by the glass are a very good option . It is a little bit on the expensive side, but its a great neighbourhood option
Very nice ambience. Attentive service. Recommended wines by the glass were good suggestions. Set menu option Not brought to our attention before we had ordered and paid. Soup of the day,Lobster bisque was excellent. Chocolate truffles exceedingly dense and rich . Enjoyable meal overall and would like to try tapas menu another time.
I went for an evening of wine tasting and fine dining with a group of six friends. We had a great time and the stuff were so helpful and friendly. I will be back again soon!
