Small wine and craft beer shop, right by Sydenham station. There is another branch on Anerley Road, near Crystal Palace station.

They have a large selection of interesting and unusual wines (ranging from around £8-£30), including a shelf dedicated to English wines. A £12 bottle of Viognier was particularly delicious.

The craft beer selection focuses on South/East London microbreweries (Late Knights in Penge, Brick Brewery in Peckham, Canopy Beer Co in Herne Hill, Bexley Brewery... you get the idea) with some additional European and US imports. The cider selection is smaller but there are several different styles on offer. Three 'house' wines (usually 2 red, 1 white) are also available on tap, to take away in refillable bottles.

The staff are friendly and happy to recommend things, although they can be a little careless sometimes when handling bottle-conditioned beers.

Kat's verdict: Definitely recommended. I've become a regular since it opened in early summer 2016.
