Noble Rot, Soho

If you’re a wine fanatic, you’ll have heard of Noble Rot in London. Their Soho location, on bustling Greek Street, is somewhere I’ve wanted to go for some time as reviews of their food and wine continued to pour out of Instagram and various websites. And why wouldn’t it be so highly rated with a wine list that most would be blown away by, and truly exceptional French influenced food? It’s hard not to fall head over hills.

With two sites open now in London you’ve got the choice of two locations to wander to, but Noble Rot on Greek Street definitely offers the most intimate setting. As you enter into this teeny venue, everything is a low lighting, candle lit vibe with dark wooden panels, pictures on the wall and just a handful of tables. They do however offer a private dining room if you’re in a larger group! 

If you’re intimidated by large wine lists - as they often can be overwhelming - then you’re in the right place with friendly staff on hand to guide you through depending on your taste. It’s as simple as telling them your preferred type of wine, any regionally specific wines and price point. Both wines selected were great - the Chenin Blanc from South Africa on the shorter menu, and then the waitress recommended a truly beautiful wine in the form of a brilliant Jeunes Vignes de Xinomarvo, Thymiopoulos 2020 from Macedonia. It was a beautiful, light purple colour but the flavours are punchy in the form of sun ripened tomatoes, summer berries, and just an incredible punch of flavour as it hits your mouth.

Now - when it comes to food, make sure you’re hungry. The menu changes regularly, based on what’s in season and what the chef is cooking for that period. With heavy influences from France, expect rich and buttery food (which is undoubtedly amazing) with various flavours, ingredients and textures. 

The starters are simple but extremely well executed, with their Sole with tomato butter being a truly exceptional dish. 

The main stand out dish was the chicken in the rich buttery, white wine sauce with morels. Just, wow. A good reminder that chicken done well is better than any red meat. We also had the pork shoulder, with chickpeas and perfect seasoning. I wonder if these dishes will make a return to the menu - because they truly are brilliant! 

To finish, you must go for the cheese course with the wine flight. Or even the chocolate torte, with their paired wine. It's a great opportunity to have a sample of some brilliant wines without the price tag!
