We think that wine should be enjoyed in a lovely environment
Buying wine should not be intimidating or too serious it should be fun and interesting and you should be able to try wine with tasty accompaniments. Our list has been carefully selected to offer a great depth of choice including many wines not available anywhere else and at the best prices we can offer.
There is much too much written about wine, much of it pompous and overly elitist. The simple rule is you should always buy what you like but it can be rewarding to try something new. You can sample wines on our sumptuous red sofa accompanied by a selection of British charcuterie and cheese.BBS Tisbury
A much bigger venue in beautiful Bath where, as well as wine, cheese and charcuterie, we also offer a menu of inventive tasty small plates. In the mornings we are open for coffee and treats and on Sundays we have a brunch menu. Downstairs an elegant lounge opens up in the evenings. There is also a private dining room.BBS Bath

No Corkage Tuesday
Normally we charge a small corkage fee so that any of our over 250 wines can be opened and enjoyed at Saville Row. Following on from the popularity of this in Tisbury, on the first Tuesday of each month this will be free... it's a bargain.
