A wine shop with an extremely don’t-tell-anyone patio out back, Newcomer Wines is a nice spot to escape the crowds around Dalston. It’s deceptively roomy inside, and combined with its secret outside space, makes for good spot if there are a few of you. The wine is mostly Austrian which, unless you have a particularly niche interest, probably won’t matter to you. What matters more is that glasses start at £6.50.
