About Humble Grape

1 St Bride's Passage
East Central London, EC4Y 8EJ

Humble Grape is an East central London bar wedding venue with a unique twist and plenty of character… 

A location like no other

Our flagship wine bar is hidden in the original crypts – designed by the legendary Sir Christopher Wren – beneath St. Bride’s Church. Legend has it that the eye-catching steeple of St. Bride’s inspired the first ever tiered wedding cake (the name is also fitting, though only a coincidence). We’re not superstitious, but if we were, we’d call hosting a wedding under a church, named St. Bride’s, that inspired the first wedding cake… well, it sounds like a good sign to us.

A breath-taking venue

We’re humbly proud of our Fleet Street bar; it’s our space and there’s none like it. On a sunny day you can stand on our terrace and gaze up at the beautiful steeple of St. Bride’s, and inside is every bit as idiosyncratic and stylish (you can also tell we really like wine). From the original double-vaulted crypts, to the warm wood floors and furniture, to the cork walls

and beautiful wine cellar, to the bright and inviting bar, to the cosy private dining room… Look, we could gush about our favourite space all day; we really recommend you come and see it for yourself. We’d be delighted to show you around, drop us a line to let us know when’s a convenient time.

A true London affair

Fleet Street is right in the heart of the city: a stone’s throw from the Thames, in the shadow of St.Paul’s cathedral and well served by transport links. At the bottom of St. Bride’s Passage, we get the best of both worlds – part of the pulse and hubbub of London, but quiet and peaceful, sheltered by the church and churchyard above.

Wine fit for a wedding

Wine shouldn’t be stressful – quite the opposite in fact. Sharing the love of wine is what we’re all about, and we love finding fantastic tipples to suit every occasion. We import our wines directly from growers and producers we love. That mean no middlemen, which means great value for money for you. And because we only import from independent, boutique producers, many of our wines are exclusive to us – you can’t get them anywhere else in the UK.

Unique venue, delicious food and helpful staff
Venue Service

By Sarah Crosskey, on 03 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 31 May 2019

Thank you Katya and the Humble Grape team for serving us the wedding of our dreams! The venue was stunning, the staff were professional and always kept our water and wine glasses full, we never felt rushed through our courses and the food was so delicious our guests are still talking about it 6 months later! Katya helped us plan all the details and even helped with some of the decor and set up. Was great for having a live band too at one end with a quieter retreat at the bar end for those who wanted to chat. Perfect venue for a wedding for all the reasons mentioned plus it's on Bride's Lane and in the crypts of a church famed for inspiring the tiered wedding cake! We would highly recommend.

The day surpassed even my high expectations

Hi Phoebe I just wanted to say a huge Thank You for all the work you put in to make Joseph and Phoebe's wedding such a success on Saturday. The day surpassed even my high expectations. The venue looked superb and was a fabulous setting for our celebrations. Your work in setting out all the picture cards, tealights and flower vases to personalise the setting was really appreciated. The front of house team and Stephano in particular worked so hard, but unobtrusively, to ensure all the guests were looked after to such a high standard. They ensured guests were served promptly with food and drink and ensured the water bottles were refilled constantly. An essential due to the frenetic dancing for most of the evening! How they managed to keep the water bottles topped up while we were charging up and down during the Ceilidh was a miracle. They also kept the Tea lights burning throughout the evening for which many thanks. Canapes and buffet in particular were delicious and plentiful. Thanks to the kitchen staff for maintaining such a high standard for such a large amount of people. So many of our guests told me that this was the best wedding they had ever attended and so much was down to you and your teams. Joseph and Phoebe had the most amazing start to their married life, all down to the amazing staff at The Humble Grape. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH.

Will definitely be recommending the Humble Grape

Dear Phoebe and Stefano, I hope this finds you both well. We wanted to take a minute to thank you for helping us put together our wedding on May 6. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously - and everything went without a hitch. The food was delicious, the wines outstanding, and the staff that were with us on the night were truly excellent. Please pass our sincerest thanks to Marie, Pepe, and the rest of the team. We'll definitely be recommending the Humble Grape to others looking for wedding venues. It's the best in London, as far as we're concerned. You haven't seen the last of us - I'm sure we'll drop by for dinner again before the year is out. But until then take care, and best of luck! Gratefully, Jason and Guddi

We had such an amazing day!
