Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

The décor at Boudoir is lavish, some might say extravagant, and windows with a view of the Merchant City provide a living backdrop to a wide range of wines offered by the glass, with wine samplers allowing patrons to try four different wines for £10 – useful if you can’t decide between Grenache or Valpolicella Ripasso. A decadent choice is the sparking sampler at £20 but their cocktail list is also popular, with an Espresso Martini or a Kir Royale providing the perfect sip to start to a night out. Although the emphasis is on their extensive wine list – which comes with a wine tasting chart – they offer a small food menu featuring bruschettas and charcuterie/cheese selections. With cheese like Comte St Antoine and Langres, and French, Italian and Scottish meats, these offer good value and are handy when after-work drinks happily last a little longer than expected.
