Terroirs Wine Bar & Restaurant in London

LondonEating & DrinkingRestaurantsWine Bars

Terroirs is one of those venues that is smart enough to serve proper french posh nosh in a clean and understated environment. You can feel the hobnobbing bouncing off their antique postered walls, with every name under the sun dropped all over the wooden floors, but with comfortable buzzing surrounds you don’t really care (and if you do, you’ll love it).
We spend a good twenty minutes ogling the wine menu, this is the wine lovers paradise (aside from the obvious- living in a vineyard, in a barrel) we got some great recommendations from the staff, and had a great glass of house champers. Stars all round, and we hadn’t even got to the tasties yet.
We had a selection of Charcuterie to begin, including Duck Rillettes and Pork & Pistachio Terrine. This pretty much set the high standard for the rest of the meal. And these pass as bar snacks? Dear Lord.
We also ordered some small plates, intent on trying as many dishes as possible. We ordered the Whole Dorset Crab which had us cracking claws and dropping cutlery like bombs (totally undeterred) and the King Prawns a la Plancha, tasty tomato grilled delights. We also got the delightful Clams, Vermouth & Aioli dish, and slightly too salty Snails in pesto with cured meats.
After all of that we normally would have taken to sleep for a good 2 years in pure happiness, but the birthday girl gets what she wants- and on this night I wanted blue cheese! Enter Fourme D’Ambert who I wish I could scrub form my memory, or else replace every other blue cheese ever served. Seriously.
I can’t rate this place highly enough and would recommend it to anyone after a taste of France right in the thick of London.
