Full Description
Our flagship wine bar is hidden in the original crypts – designed by the legendary Sir Christopher Wren – beneath St. Bride’s Church. Legend has it that the eye-catching steeple of St. Bride’s inspired the first ever tiered wedding cake (the name is also fitting, though only a coincidence). We’re not superstitious, but if we were, we’d call hosting a wedding under a church, named St. Bride’s, that inspired the first wedding cake… well, it sounds like a good sign to us. We’re humbly proud of our Fleet Street bar; it’s our space and there’s none like it. On a sunny day you can stand on our terrace and gaze up at the beautiful steeple of St. Bride’s, and inside is every bit as idiosyncratic and stylish (you can also tell we really like wine). From the original double-vaulted crypts, to the warm wood floors and furniture, to the cork walls and beautiful wine cellar, to the bright and inviting bar, to the cosy private dining room… Look, we could gush about our favourite space all day; we really recommend you come and see it for yourself. We’d be delighted to show you around, drop us a line to let us know when’s a convenient time. Fleet Street is right in the heart of the city, a true London affair: a stone’s throw from the Thames, in the shadow of St.Paul’s cathedral and well served by transport links. At the bottom of St. Bride’s Passage, we get the best of both worlds – part of the pulse and hubbub of London, but quiet and peaceful, sheltered by the church and churchyard above. Wine fit for a wedding Wine shouldn’t be stressful – quite the opposite in fact. Sharing the love of wine is what we’re all about, and we love finding fantastic tipples to suit every occasion. We import our wines directly from growers and producers we love. That mean no middlemen, which means great value for money for you. And because we only import from independent, boutique producers, many of our wines are exclusive to us – you can’t get th

The day surpassed even my high expectations
Hi Phoebe I just wanted to say a huge Thank You for all the work you put in to make Joseph and Phoebe's wedding such a success on Saturday. The day surpassed even my high expectations. The venue looked superb and was a fabulous setting for our celebrations. Your work in setting out all the picture cards, tealights and flower vases to personalise the setting was really appreciated. The front of house team and Stephano in particular worked so hard, but unobtrusively, to ensure all the guests were looked after to such a high standard. They ensured guests were served promptly with food and drink and ensured the water bottles were refilled constantly. An essential due to the frenetic dancing for most of the evening! How they managed to keep the water bottles topped up while we were charging up and down during the Ceilidh was a miracle. They also kept the Tea lights burning throughout the evening for which many thanks. Canapes and buffet in particular were delicious and plentiful. Thanks to the kitchen staff for maintaining such a high standard for such a large amount of people. So many of our guests told me that this was the best wedding they had ever attended and so much was down to you and your teams. Joseph and Phoebe had the most amazing start to their married life, all down to the amazing staff at The Humble Grape. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. Caroline and Peter Warwick.

We'll definitely be recommending the Humble Grape
Dear Phoebe and Stefano, I hope this finds you both well. We wanted to take a minute to thank you for helping us put together our wedding on May 6. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously - and everything went without a hitch. The food was delicious, the wines outstanding, and the staff that were with us on the night were truly excellent. Please pass our sincerest thanks to Marie, Pepe, and the rest of the team. We'll definitely be recommending the Humble Grape to others looking for wedding venues. It's the best in London, as far as we're concerned. You haven't seen the last of us - I'm sure we'll drop by for dinner again before the year is out. But until then take care, and best of luck! Gratefully, Jason and Guddi

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

A wonderful couple enjoyed a laid back ceremony for 150 friends and family. With Champagne cocktails to kickstart the celebrations on the terrace which looks onto the famous spire of the St Brides Church. Plentiful artisan wines and scrumptious food were served. The evening was topped off with a Scottish Caleigh which was highly enjoyed by all. Our team enjoyed the evening as much as the guests.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We are a humble business, born from the desire to make good wine unstuffy and inclusive. Since 2009 we’ve been seeking out handcrafted wines from relatively unknown vineyards around the world. We directly import our wines, avoiding extra margins for agents and distributors. And because they’re made with loving care, most of our wines, intentionally or otherwise are biodynamic, organic or sustainably produced. We have an absolutely awesome team who not only love wine, but they love hospitality too, and we pride ourselves on delivering the best. We always go above and beyond to ensure our clients have an unforgettable experience with us.
