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.

    Fantastic food. Restaurant was fairly atmospheric but imagine loads more atmosphere in the evening as we went for lunch.
    Only negative was that the coffee was watery and needed to be stronger. On the whole the food made up for that.

    Have written full review in trip advisor, but in summary a cool place to grab some creative food and enjoy some nice wine. Service good and overall vibe cool and welcoming.

    We had two different Sherries, and several tapas in a quiet and warm atmosphere. The staff, highly professional, suggested us a remarkable combination of dishes, including cheese, vegetables, and fish. It was a fantastic lunch altogether, which my friend, visiting from abroad, really enjoyed. Food comes with simplicity, which is all you need to really appreciate every moment of this experience.
