I booked Drakes for my husband's birthday and was not disappointed. Amazing food, great sherry and friendly service. I really can't wait to go back.

In the heart of London, Drakes Tabanco is a tavern serving up sherry wines straight from the barrel, and rustic Spanish food. Visitors can fill up a bottle from the barrel to take home, or there is a top shelf selection offering up a range of old and rare sherry wines.

The Drakes menu features an extensive choice of nibbles which pair perfectly with their sherry wines, from smoked scallops with avocado purée, to lamb prosciutto with mustard pickles. There are a range of Spanish-inspired mains, such as their braised pig cheeks with oloroso potato purée and octopus with chickpeas and chorizo.

Brought to you by the award-winning team behind Copita and Barrica, Drakes London offers a rustic, nostalgic take on the traditional Spanish tabanco.

Nestled away on Windmill Street just off Tottenham Court Road, Tabanco London is a 4-minute walk from Goodge Street Tube Station.

Drakes Tabanco can seat up to 50+ guests, and is also available for private hire.

    11 of us turned up to a 7 person booking and the hectic staff still managed to accommodate us. Literally everything we had was brilliant - and we had a lot. Amazing decor, friendly staff and delicious food.

    Our favourite restaurant in London, always greeted with friendly and happy staff. Loved the tender octopus recommendation for the night.

    Unique atmosphere for food, drink and people - all.authentically Spanish - in London. An establishment that invites you not to hurry, take it easy, and enjoy the moment. A place to return to and to share some time with friends. .

    Everything about the experience was fantastic, from Drakes keeping the kitchen open a little bit later for our late lunch group booking, to the friendless of the staff and to the amazing food and sherry.
