Humble Grape Islington

It’s getting more and more difficult for Humble Grape to live up to their name.

Not because of the grapes, you understand. The other thing.

After all, they started life with a simple, but excellently executed wine bar in Battersea. Modesty became more difficult with the launch of their cavernously large, gorgeous sophomore joint in Fleet Street. And now, they’re going to have to play it extremely bashful thanks to the third instalment in their wine-empire: Humble Grape Islington.

Why? Well, for three reasons:

THE SPACE

They’ve got everything from a bar, to a dining room, to a wine shop, to a ‘wine library’, and it’s all filled with beautiful reclaimed & aged furnishings. The dining room is filled with foliage, while the wine library lets you browse a curated collection of wine books from around the world. Which brings us to,

THE WINE

You’ll find a collection of over 400 bottles directly imported. They’re all single vineyard, largely organic, biodynamic and sustainably sourced, and you can take a gander at the whole collection thanks to the Winemaker Wall, which features stories about the vineyards and wine makers themselves (read about Panzano Chianti’s efforts to outwit wild pigs that kept trying to eat his grapes, for instance). And of course, there’s

THE FOOD

The menu features dishes such as diver-caught scallops with Laverstock farm black pudding & crispy leeks; confit Orchard Farm pork belly with celeriac & apple remoulade; and burrata with purple sprouting broccoli, pumpkin seeds & basil oil.

It’s almost like they’re bragging.
