Finally found my way to this place! Dan Keeling & Mark Andrew first created a no nonsense magazine that is going strong for 10 years already. In 2015 they opened Noble Rot Lamb’s Conduit. For me as a sommelier the perfect place. I could spend here hours. A cosy place, an extensive wine list, a broad amount of gems by the glass that change frequently, big smiles on the staff and fun conversations allround in the bar. Can’t wait to go back!

A small chain of Italian restaurants in Mayfair focusing on its strong wine list (think Barolo and Brunello served by the glass) and northern Italian menu. We enjoyed the crispy fried sage, slow-cooked pork bruschetta with burrata, honey and pistachio and the lamb seared medium with charred chard. Booking essential as it packs out quickly.
