Humble Grape

There’s nothing ‘humble’ about Humble Grape’s Roast Dinner

Treasured London venue offers up succulent roasts and fine wines each Sunday

Make no mistake, I’m no new customer to Humble Grape.

In fact, I think I may have been one of the founding members to the brand’s incredible Humble Club, a life changing wine membership. For just £25.00 a month, you receive two (quality) glasses of wines per week, 10% off event tickets, 10% off the online shop and a free bottle of wine for your birthday. The simple promise of eight glasses of wine a month for less than thirty quid should be enough to have you pounding on the door.

So, as I’ve spent many a Sunday at Humble Grape, you best believe I’ve tried their delicious roasts, and here I was again to review the offering. I picked my favourite Humble in Battersea, which is close to my digs, a lovely walk and a stone’s throw away from Northcote Road – the ideal spot for a spot of pre-roast shopping. There are plenty of other destinations though, including, and in my personal favourite order, Islington, Canary Wharf (especially in the summer!), Liverpool Street, Fleet Street and Crouch End (I haven’t visited the latter).

On a crisp, sunny but chilly, Sunday I ventured down with a friend who is actually a qualified food writer, so all bets were off. To start, we opted for Venison Carpaccio and Cheese Croquettes. The venison dish was served with a blueberry topping, was seared to perfection and light on the palette.

For mains, we both opted for the Saddle of Lamb with all the trimmings – including red cabbage, tenderstem broccoli, root veggies, a huge portion of cauliflower cheese and crispy fluffy potatoes. The sides were divine and all incredibly top tier. Whilst the lamb was nice, it was a little tough. However, I’ve been for a roast here enough to know it was a one off. In fact, I always opt for the Belly Pork which is always perfection, but thought I’d branch out on this occasion.

We are always too full for desserts and manage to get our arms twisted, ordering a Chocolate Fondant and Bread and Butter Pudding which were both luxurious and naughty – in a good way!

The star of the show at Humble Grape is its vast variation of wines, explicitly sourced from independent makers, experts, artisans and enthusiasts who hold sustainability close to their heart – we love this. You can tell the quality in the wine and also the knowledge of all the staff.

Alongside regular events and wine tastings, guests can enjoy wine flights to widen their knowledge of different grape varieties, enjoy their wine to-go for a discounted price and many of the destinations are dog-friendly.
