An independent wine, beer and liquor shop in Sydenham
4 Sydenham Station Approach, London
All In London Review
Go see BOB for craft beer and fine wines
The shop itself is a smart, utilitarian type, all painted chipboard, heavy dark grey shelving and decorative lamps swinging low above the counter. And the good looks and big Bob branding aren’t smoke and mirrors for a lack of substance or knowledge about the product on the shelves. On our visit we were treated to a breakdown of the world wines available, the provenance of the craft beers and the benefits of buying one of Bob’s Bottles – a refillable to be topped up from wine barrels hidden in the walls. We opt for a bottle of Bob’s fizzy wine and a bottle of Brew By Numbers Saison from the beer fridge and walk away happy.
Some people might wrinkle their nose at a review of what is essentially an off license but the style and substance of Bob Wines makes it worth a write-up. You don’t get the Bob Wines service in the supermarket and with traditional off licenses disappearing, its means that when you want some wine or beer knowledge dispensed, you need a place like this.
