Lovely spot to relax and enjoy a wide range of high quality wine. The dispensing machines mean you can try a sip of several wines before settling on your favourite for a full glass or.....a whole bottle!

We came for the Jazz evening and were thoroughly impressed. The wine was very reasonably priced and the food was amazing - an excellent selection of nibbles and canapés which complimented the wine and overall atmosphere of the evening. Wonderful warm feeling to the venue....More

We really enjoyed it here. You can sample some lovely wine by the glass (an extensive choice) and eat some great food. Plus there is some really interesting art in the place to look at (albeit above my budget mostly). We were made to feel...More

Nifty system of a card with money on it that you use to buy from a choice of 40 wines from sophisticated wine dispensing systems. Buy by small, medium or full glassful. Excellent idea to sample a range of different wines on an explore of...More

Relaxed and classy! Friendly staff with great unobtrusive service. Especially Georgie who created an individual dessert for us on discovering we were celebrating my daughter’s birthday! A real jewel in Berkhmsted’s crown 👏

I'm glad you enjoyed celebrating your daughters birthday with us, and that Georgie has returned to us in time to add to your evenings experience. Do come back and see us again soon. Paul

Thank you for your lovely review - Georgie will be particularly delighted you noticed her hair (well, who wouldn't!). Do come back soon and see her latest colour - it can sometimes change more than once in a single evening ;-)
