Always an excellent experience. The food was fantastic, but maybe could have done with more choice for a party of 8. That said, will definitely go back.

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.

    The food portion was too small for how much I paid. When the food arrived, it was also very cold. Overall, I was not impressed.

    Amazing food, sherry and wine. Excellent staff who are enthusiastic and made the experience that much better.

    Had an enjoyable meal in a well worn but relaxed environment. Service was good as staff available nearby virtually all the time. Food was more than acceptable but nothing spectacular. Thought the wine was a little expensive.

    Drakes Tabanco used to be one of my favourite places in London. I was constantly recommending it to other wine and particularly sherry lovers - however times have changed and it is not the same bar. No longer serving sherry by the carafe or bottle - the 100ml glasses become ridiculously expensive if you want more than one - which if you like your sherry - you tend to. We asked the team if we could negotiate a price for by the bottle or carafe and they wouldn’t consider it. So we had no alternative but to move on to sharing a couple or bottles of wine for a more cost effective option.

    The wine list is full of slightly tired vintages - Vedejo from 2016 for instance and the food while good - is quite pricey too. The group I was there with know their fino from their fiano and the evening was very overpriced and disappointing. £70/head and we left hungry!

    A sad demise to what was once a brilliant nook for people who love good food and good wine. Sadly I wouldn’t recommend anymore.

    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!
