Terroirs. Credit: terroirswinebar.com

For casual dining my first choice would have to be Terroirs for the simplicity of the food (think cheese, charcuterie and classic French bistro food), but most of all for the wine.  I also like the relaxed and easy-going atmosphere.  It’s definitely great value, with many small growers and natural wine producers. As well as older vintages available at affordable prices. Laure Patry

The Remedy gets just about everything spot on; loads of interesting and natural wines by the glass (especially old Madeira), delicious sharing plates and a laid-back atmosphere. Richard Hemming MW
Small, relaxed, informal and convivial The Remedy is a lovely little wine bar only a short walk from Oxford Street. They have a superlative collection of predominantly European wines, many with a nod towards the natural. Plus they’ll happily pour you half a bottle of any of their high-end wines for half the price.

The Winemaker’s Club

Walking under the arches in The Winemakers Club is like stepping back in time. It has the air of a private club, only without the stuffiness and membership fees. John, the brains behind the idea, has hand-picked some gems from unusual parts of the world – including Slovenia, Hungary, even Poland – but you’ll also find classic Claret at bargain prices.

This wineshop-cum-wine bar is the perfect place to relax and unwind after work with a plate of cheese and charcuterie. Boasting a wonderfully eclectic selection of natural, organic and biodynamic wines. Isabelle Legeron MW

A self-proclaimed ‘wine pub’, this authentically dank cellar is hidden away under a railway arch near the City. The Winemaker’s Club is home to a wine importer with a taste for unusual natural and biodynamic wines. There’s plenty to explore by the taste, glass or bottle. Matt Walls

40 Maltby Street has a great natural wine list that is well-priced and served with beautiful food that’s centred around careful sourcing and seasonality. Buzzing atmosphere and wonderfully casual, with wines available to drink by the glass or bottle at the bar, or even to take home and enjoy.  Isabelle Legeron MW

Elliot’s Café benefits from the lively ambience of Borough market, whilst avoiding the hustle and bustle. One of my old favourites as it’s only a short stroll from Decanter HQ and offers fantastic tapas. The wine list has been put together by Isabelle Legeron MW, the queen of natural wine, so expect some quirky and exciting wines. The atmosphere is laid-back and just what you need after a long day at the office. Christelle Guibert
