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.

    Love it! We continue to come back and it's always delicious - particularly love the cauliflower pine-nut salad and lamb carpaccio as well as the great wine selection.

    Great atmosphere, tasty tapas, good value

    The food was lovely; very flavoursome but small portions. The mains were little bigger than starters although they were stil delicious.

    The only, very minor, downside was that we ordered bread and they brought 5 slices yet there were 6 in our party. I feel if you're going to offer bread then there should be enough for every diner and 5 very small slices were not enough. I asked for an extra slice and was told it wasn't possible.

    However, overall is was great!

    Easy online booking for the evening - hot sunny day in London. Arrived early but were shown straight to our table. My colleague from Italy loved the painted walls and hams hanging from the ceiling. Food excellent, wine very good, service excellent with very helpful waitress. On my list now for the future! 5* place

    Felt that the overall value for money was poor. Small portions and not even any bread offered with our starter. Left feeling very dissatisfied. Probably my least favorite meal deal ever in London.
