A great place for something a little quirky. We did our own mini wine tasting and sampled different wines which was fun. The decor and ambience is great too and the staff very helpful. Will be back!

Went here the other week with my friend and had a lovely evening. An exciting concept of wine vending machines and a good selection of wine too. Such a chill environment and a good selection of board games! Will definitely be going back soon!

What a fantastic night at the Black Bottle; I really urge everyone to go there. As it was my first time here, the staff explained clearly the concept and how it all worked. Great fun, and brilliant place to try lots of different wines!

Recently visited this quirky wine bar with friends the interior has so much character and a real novel way of trying different wines . It's worth booking if going in a group also great for pre drinks.
