Holy Bird

Holy Birds, jaunty wine list

Surely the only restaurant in London – nay, the world – to offer Babycham bottomless brunch, The Holy Birds serves up a wine offering that is nothing if not jaunty, careening from Liebfraumilch to Corton Charlemagne on the same two-page list.

Some might say you have to admire the chutzpah, and of course snobbery is a miserable trait born of the arbitrary judgments of the morally weak… but Babycham bottomless brunch is a cutting room floor idea and cannot but fail.

Moving on, Holy Birds presents a modest selection of safe bet wines to pair with your poultry. It’s a list that seems to use one supplier (Bibendum) for everything except the surprising-to-see icons like Solaia (£400) and Vega Sicilia (£620).

Crowd-pleasing, wine enthusiast-dismaying Pinot Grigio and Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc feature prominently. There’s no Prosecco though. Though there is Babycham (did I mention that?), which is yours for £20 a bottle if you don’t fancy the bottomless option.
