The Wine Bar
Behind the small traditional shop frontage, The Wine Bar is a chilled-out, modern, Tardis-like space in a beautiful and ancient building. A spacious, relaxed bar with comfortable chairs reaches though to a large and sunny garden; the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine from the superb selection on offer. A nicely chilled Pinot Grigio went down especially well after a two-hour meeting at the nearby George Hotel. Bottled beers are also available as, of course, is coffee.
Food at The Wine Bar is rather cleverly supplied by The Stamford Deli, just around the corner and another Great Food Club recommendation. Choose from the menu at The Wine Bar, they phone the order through, and the range of snacks, salads, cheese, quiches, tarts and cakes prepared by the neighbouring deli will be whizzed round for you to enjoy with your glass of wine or beer.
They also produce in small batches The Stamford Dry Gin – which is available to buy by the bottle. This is created by The Wine Bar and is infused with their hand-selected botanicals including juniper, coriander, tangerine, lemon, lime, macadamia nuts and angelica.
