Who hasn’t dreamed of a relaxed wine spot opening at the end of their road? You know, the type with a bar made out of upcycled wooden crates. Where the owner will enthusiastically engage you in conversation about grape varieties, without ever boring you senseless. That’s what the Mountgrove Bothy is. It’s friendly. It’s comfortable. It’s not at all precious. And it’s run by people who love wine and love to share it with their customers. Besides wine, they also serve simple seasonal small plates, and, at weekends, they have pop-ups like the Chinese Laundry take charge of the food. Whether you’re coming for a full meal of dumplings and spicy fried sea-bass, just dropping by for a glass before heading somewhere else, or stopping in for a bottle to takeaway, you’ll like it so much you’ll want to come back again and again.
