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.

    Great Tappas/small plates, sherry matching was a good experience. Desert was simple but very nice.

    Good restaurant. Some dishes like the cauliflower were excellent while others such as the sardine on toast were so small and lacked flavour. Overall, I think it is simply too expensive for the portion sizes and not good value. Probably best for a quick glass of wine and a small snack rather than a whole evening which can end up being very expensive.

    Great atmosphere, food is delicious, lived the cauliflower and presa. Wines are superb - the orange wine is perfect.

    We chose a star deal at Drakes Tabanco for an evening meal between two theatre shows. The food and wine were fantastic, and the service quick but friendly and personal. Would definitely recommend, and will definitely be back!
