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.

    Great as always

  • (((** 26 June 2017 by Roz from London

    Love the authenticity of this place. The atmosphere is great and what I can imagine a Spanish Taberna would be like. The paintings on the wall are interesting. The food was amazing and the choice available was great. The only complaint was there were no fizzy drinks available and the waiter wasn't always about so had a bit of waiting here and there. Apart from this it was a great meal.

    Fabulous! Gorgeous, cosy place. Every dish we had was perfect. The truffled goats cheese with honey is not to be missed. Service was impeccable.

    Wonderful food - the pork cheek and the octopus were particularly fine examples of their genre. The service was also lovely and friendly

    Always excellent food here! Great atmosphere and really helpful waiters. The goats cheese and honey is a favourite, but we also love the cauliflower salad.
