Introducing Balfour at Bow: A celebration of English food and wine in the heart of the city


English winery and hospitality pioneer, Balfour Hospitality, has just opened its 10th venue, Balfour at Bow, at the site of the legendary Bow Wine Vaults. The newly created food and wine destination offers four dining experiences, all with traditional food favourites alongside the highest quality English wines from its very own Kent-based winery.

Located behind the famous Mary-le-Bow Church just a stone’s throw from St Paul’s Cathedral, the venue has been serving the city since 1987. The renovation is fresh and modern whilst retaining original character. Guests can enjoy a drink at the iconic bar, grab a quick bite from the bistro, dine in the Vestry Restaurant, or relax al fresco. Balfour at Bow also has a private space available for private dining and corporate hire, accommodating up to 50 people.

The bespoke menu has been carefully crafted to champion seasonal produce and consists of a mix of British classics alongside contemporary twists on popular dishes. Regularly changing to reflect the best quality ingredients, the menu always includes vegetarian and vegan options, small plates, and exquisite sharing options.

Head Chef Iain Povey said: “Our food is classical in style, but with modern twists to deliver an innovative offering. We craft dishes that showcase seasonal produce, letting the best quality ingredients guide our menu, whilst always ensuring that our dishes meet all dining preferences”. 

Launched by Kent-based winery, Balfour at Bow is a true celebration of English wine, offering exciting wine flights that showcase Balfour’s award-winning wines and provide the perfect opportunity to taste a range of still and sparkling options. Alongside this, an extensive wine list and the finest spirits and liqueurs are available, with expert mixologists on hand to create cocktails to suit all tastes.

Founder Richard Balfour-Lynn said: “Bow Wine Vaults has been an institution in the heart of the city for many years, and we are over the moon to continue a fine tradition with our newest Balfour Hospitality venue, Balfour at Bow”.
