Our historic cellars were converted in 1999 to create London's most exclusive fine wine & dining venues, our three cellars: Napoleon, Sussex and Pickering. Located beneath our shop in the heart of central London, prior to their renovation these were the largest working cellars in the capital.
The Napoleon Cellar is named after Napoleon III, who plotted his return to France here whilst in exile in England between 1838 and 1848.
The Pickering Cellar is hidden beneath Pickering Place, London's smallest public square and once a notorious venue for cockfighting and bear-baiting. Both of these impressive cellars provide the perfect venue for your tutored wine tastings.
Sussex cellar is our newest event space with terracotta archways and intimate yet contemporary feel. It is named after the Duke of Sussex, one of the seven royal Dukes who was a regular customer of company’s in the 19th century. Design influences hail from Spanish wine cellars or Bodegas, and use handmade London tiles to create archways and columns that extend through both the mezzanine and the sub-basement level of the cellars.
