I’ve been to Vivat Bacchus on several occasions, both to have dinner and for some of their events. The latter are posted on their website in advance and highly worth checking out. Very good menu with a wide range of choices and price points. OUTSTANDING...More

Went for dinner on a Saturday night. The place was rather empty so atmosphere-wise it lacked the buzz. We started with a cheese board (the VB selection) which was great. Very generous portion, and that was a ‘small’ platter. We wanted to leave space for...More

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House

If you love fine wine and fine food - in that order - then you should run and not walk to Vivat Bacchus right this minute. Dedicated to the god of wine, Vivat Bacchus is not only a place for fine dining. It has a passionate dedication to the best of the grape. You will be invited to visit the three wine cellars, one each for red, white, and champagne, to choose bottles to complement your food. Take your time - they hold around 6000 bottles with 250 different labels. Later you might like to visit the cheese cellar to choose among eighty local and imported cheeses to savour at the end of your meal. Oh! The meal! Right. The Head Chef is Robert Staegemann, formerly of Launceston Place Restaurant, who offers a menu that's a scrumptious amalgam of classic French and dishes influenced by cooking cultures from all over the world. Choose starter of cured foie gras with plum chutney and toast, main course of roast breast of guinea fowl with papardelle pasta, crispy pancetta and red wine glaze, and pud of banana creme brulee, or just the aforementioned cheeses with port. The ambience is smart and sophisticated with decor that will pleasantly remind you of wine cellars decorated with labels and labelled bin ends.
