Superb food, one of our favorite restaurants in London. Do not miss the cheesecake for dessert! Not to be confused with sweeter varieties, this cheesecake has bite! Wee's have not yet tried Drakes for lunch but fully intend to do so. Brilliantly located, just off Charlotte Street.

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.

    Visited Drakes for an early dinner as party of 6, including kids. The service was very friendly and attentive, even taking account of my request for a table with seats, as opposed to stools. Food was great, felt very authentic and similar style to tapas food had previously in Spain and Portugal. Atmosphere was very pleasant and decor adding to the experience. I would highly recommend Drake for nice food in a friendly and relaxed environment. I will be back.

    The food was excellent and we warmly recomend the restaurant. It was very buisy so a waitor or two at work had been nice for the guests, but after a litle waiting the great food was worth waiting for. We missed sangeria on the menu.

    Really great food (every dish was a favourite!), definitely decent wine for the price and friendly service!

    This restaurant is always lovely and Juan treats every customer well. Favourite dish by far is the octopus but the deep fried cauliflower is a close 2nd. The house read wine is definitely worth a try too!
