Avie is a Legend and the wine options, service, enthusiasm and value for money here is excellent! I will be back! 🤩🥰🙏🏼👌🏼✊🏼💪🏼🤟🏼🥂5/5 Chirag Patel, Local Guide, August 2023
A splendid neighbourhood wine shop and bar with a wide selection of interesting wines, nice little terrace, knowledgeable and friendly owners and staff. Organises tasting evenings with producers and makers as well as wine training. Well worth a detour if you live anywhere in London!5/5 Emmanuel Gobillot, June 2023
Quaint & cute. Suitable for a relaxed catch up with a friend. Excellent selection of wine 🍷 …5/5 Sarah H. A. Halim, Local Guide, April 2023
Amazing friendly and knowledgeable staff. It's our go-to wine place and they even helped us host an amazing birthday party in the small private room at the back. Awesome!5/5 Ashwin L, Local Guide, February 2023
What a great place! We've gone here for monthly wine tastings as well as drinks and dinner. They have good wine and great staff. The friendliness and helpfulness of the employees really stands out, especially in London where service often suffers. They have a lot of wines by the glass and bottle (they're also a wine shop) and even though the food menu is limited, we enjoyed the cheese and charcuterie and thought the portions were generous. We'll definitely return.5/5 Heather ROBINSON, Local Guide, October 2022
Lovely place, brilliant wine and great staff! Had a private wine tasting experience with Adam would 100% recommend it.5/5 Eve Hill, August 2022
