Drinks & Nibbles

Drinks & Nibbles

OK, we could have just called this tapas and been done, but half the restaurants on here aren’t even spanish. London’s having a love affair with drinking establishments that take as much care with their food as they do with their booze, and we’re more than happy to tag along for the ride.

  • Zoilo

    9 Duke St, W1U 3EG

  • Sticks'n'Sushi

    11 Henrietta St, WC2E 8PY
    020 3141 8810 | website

    Sticks'n'Sushi ain't subtle, but the gorgeous jewel-like sushi and moreish sticks of fish and meat sure are good.

  • St John

    26 St. John St, EC1M 4AY
    020 3301 8069 | website

  • Salt Yard

  • Polpo

    Venetian nibbles and a New York vibe make this a winner, though the reservation policy can cause rage.

  • Pizarro

    194 Bermondsey St, SE1 3TQ
    020 7378 9455 | website

    Pizarro is an expanded-version of Spanish chef Jose Pizarro's sherry bar, Jose. More great Spanish nibbles, more sherry - all good.
