Welcome to the Planet of the Grapes restaurant and wine bar in Bow Lane.
What's so special about it?
It is a restaurant wine bar and fine wine merchant all in one. On offer is a range of over 300 wines, plus wines by the glass. The wines are on full display lining the walls of the bar. To drink the wine in the bar or restaurant simply add a flat £10 per bottle regardless of the retail price, therefore a bottle of Louis Roederer N.V Champagne will be £40 retail and £50 to drink in the bar, a simple, transparent and excellent value way to enjoy a fabulous bottle of wine.
Our aim is to provide wine that people will be genuinely delighted to drink at a price they are very happy to pay.
We can put together tailor-made mixed cases, provide recommendations and offer a full private and corporate gift service. We offer case discounts and can deliver anywhere in London for free.
We offer a full menu, which changes weekly and our ingredients are all as locally sourced as possible. We cater for meat lovers and vegetarians and can provide the full four courses or just a selection of light bites. Making a reservation is advisable, please call or just click here to email.
Still not enough to convince you? Then read our review in the Sunday Times.
As well as vast range of still wines we have a large selection of fizz. With top vintage Champagne, special limited cuvees and 'Growers' Champagnes, delicious Prosecco, and great value Cava we have all bases covered - even sparkling Shiraz.
An interesting and ever changing range of premium sprits accompany the vast display of wines.
We also have a constantly changing selection of wines by the glass. And some well-chosen premium beers and ciders for those moments when a cleansing ale is required.
Please find below our most current menu, which changes weekly.

It's my birthday!
If you have a special occasion to celebrate or for those of you who fancy areal treat, we can decant older wines prior to your arrival. We have a number of older vintages, very full-bodied wines and a huge range of whites and Champagnes. As such it's not always possible for all these wines to be chilled ready for drinking and some of the reds would certainly benefit from decanting.
To discuss the older wines available or order something particular email or call us.
The bar will be open from 10am until late Monday to Friday so come along and see what you think.
John & Fabio.
Please email or call for more details on the options available.
We host informal fun and engaging tastings for small or larger groups of friends, colleagues or clients - from 2 to 80 people.
We will tailor the theme and format to your needs and are happy to provide suggestions to get the most out of your event. A tasting hosted by one of our qualified and experienced tutors makes a really enjoyable afternoon or evening.
Group bookings and private hire options
We offer several options for private hire options. Monday - Friday we do not charge a hire fee but simply ask that a minimum spend be reached.
We can also host private functions at the weekends.
The full venue, which seats approximately 50 people (up to 80 standing), can be hired exclusively. We can also offer the rear raised area of the restaurant, which seats approximately 30 people (up to 40 standing).
As part of the private hire minimum spend (full or part of the venue), we can offer wine tutoring services, and can accommodate tastings based on particular themes, hosted by qualified wine tutors.
We have a range of food options, from platters of excellent charcuterie and cheeses, to a small, very high quality, and decidedly seasonal, restaurant menu. This can also be served as a buffet, or as a sharing menu.
