The Remedy is a charming, aptly-named little wine bar on a back street in Fitzrovia. Although it’s pretty, err, cosy, what it lacks in space it makes up for in lots of exposed brick, candlelight, and smoked cheese croquettes. This place has a long list of wine from small producers that they update constantly, and the two owners are more than happy to talk you through your options with zero snobbery involved. It’s a great spot for a laidback but romantic date, a grown-up catch-up, or just to read old copies of Noble Rot whilst tucking into some grilled octopus. See, charming.
