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.

    I went to Drakes Tabasco for a pre show meal and drink. The staff were immediately friendly and welcoming and attentive throughout the meal. We had charcuterie, cheese and some tapas dishes, all of which were excellent accompanied by a lovely red wine. The whole expletive was lovely, it’s a great place with a wonderful atmosphere and I can’t wait to go for another visit and maybe try their lunchtime menu as the options look delicious!

    Decorative restaurant makes you relax. You can give budget to set your own menu for small party 6-10.

    Gosh that was good. The food and wine were exceptionally delicious, the service was excellent and while the bill was eye watering we had only ourselves to blame - it was all too good to hold back! One of my group had Coeliacs Disease and I am thrilled to say they were brilliantly knowledgeable and considerate of this. Once you discount the sliders and sandwiches, at least 80% of the menu was gluten free, including the black sausage which is unusual, even the delicious lightly battered cauliflower used chickpea flour. We will be back!

    We had a lovely meal enjoying the tasty dishes from each section of the menu.The mini burger was a great hit with my mother.One sister was pleased with her veggie cauliflower dish,the other raved about the fish.And I was happy with that they were happy,as they can be a tough crowd.

    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.

    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.

    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.
