I stumbled across this place after a few cheeky pints of amber nectar at the nearby Spurstowe Arms one evening. This outlet is one of a number from the people behind Borough Wines of Borough Market (name gives it away right?) As well as selling a range of wines to take away or even enjoy in/outside the shop, they also offer an impressive wine re-fill service. Buy a bottle for two quid, fill it up for a fiver, then when you run dry you can head back and re-fill it direct from the cask. You can choose from red, white or rose. The owners are French, and while the French offerings dominate the booze bins in there, you’ll also be able to find some excellent new world wines amongst the old favourites. Mine’s a glass of red. / Firas Waez
