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.

Customer reviews for Drakes Tabanco
((*** 24 May 2016 by Julian Ruiz from London
It could have been great but it really wasn't! Very attractive menu, but ridiculously small portions. Their ceviche was stunning, but it felt like one of those complimentary starters offered by many restaurants. The mains were as tiny as the starters, a quarter of a small sole and literally 6 small pieces of roasted potatoes as a side to SHARE for two. The pudding wasn't great! The time between dishes was huge! Extremely slow service!

Entertaining service who knew about the food and sherries in particular. Gorgeous tapas, we started from the top and got about half way down the menu. Will back back for the second half another time!

Quite individual and distinctive, good food ?? and wine, pleasant quiet location. The portions on small plates seemed rather light but were actually just right. Wonderful pork belly. But best dish was the Sea Bream ceviche, really fresh and tasty. Overall good value and very relaxed, no lunchtime rush.

We loved the atmosphere, hanging hams just as you see in Spain and Beryl Cook type murals on the wall. A good range of choices; we particularly enjoyed the deep fried cauliflower salad, octopus and the vanilla ice cream with Pedro Ximinez sherry poured over it.

Drakes Tabanco offers great vibe and good food. Pluses = The seafood dishes in particular were excellent - the fresh anchovies, the sea bream ceviche and the tuna tartar were lovely. Iberco ham sublime. Wine list excellent and their sparkling offerings were quite nice. Staff super friendly and take pride in their food. Minuses = we didn't get a lot of guidance of how many dishes to order and were surprised at how small the main dishes were. Desert options limited. Seemed a bit stretched on the staff front - operating at full pelt and hard to catch their eye, though completely friendly and attentive when you've got their attention. It is very much a good tapas and drinks venue which I'd happily visit again.
