Put the question to the Forum earlier in the year as to where I can quickly run out to buy a bottle of normal priced wine, when staying at the County Hall this year and got some great replies !!! - However, just wondering if anywhere new that sells wine had opened up nearby since last August as I don't like leaving my children alone in the hotel for too long. Last year the only supermarket behind the hotel didn't sell wine and I had to go into Waterloo station - up the escalator etc. !!! and queue for 15 mins! I was certainly ready for a glass of wine when I got back to my room, after all that !!! - Many thanks - Barbara
David have you tried M & S's house wine? - had some the other day it was pretty good - we had the red, though my knowledge of wine is limited , my fellow diners assured me it was far superior to others.
Thank-you for the responses to all my recent messages! - I think that the solution to my buying a bottle of wine problem is to buy a couple of bottles, here in the north west and to put them in my suitcase !!!! - A Tesco near Waterloo station would do a roaring trade !!!! - Really looking forward to spending a week in the area again next month, as I have gathered so much new information from the forum since visiting last year !!!
PS - Jan - I have tried the M&S housewine and I agree that it is indeed very pleasant !!!
The Costcutter on the Cut is quite expensive for wine. There is a Threshers on Stamford Street that can have some good deals but I think the Victoria Wine in Waterloo is closer than either of those two. The best local wine shop is in Vinopolis, well worth a visit. There is also an Odd Bins on the Strand, over Hungerford Bridge.
