On a warm summer evening, the neat side patio at Crush is the perfect perch for sampling some of this cozy nook’s 400 vintages and 62 wines and champagnes available by the glass—or swirled into suitable wine flights such as Old World Hidden Gems and Mediterranean Flavours. It’s a little-known secret, but weekdays from 5 to 7PM, the British-inspired bar food menu—where you’ll find Cornish pasties, charcuterie plates and fish and chips—is 50% off. Don’t be put off by the sight of all those diners tucking into fixed price menus, you’re most welcome just to nip in for a glass of wine—or five. Like the wine list, the décor inside is tasteful—a warm, inviting room with sand brick walls and vintage wine posters. It’s a refreshingly unpretentious King Street spot—a welcome, down-to-earth change from many adjacent options.
