The Cellars

Berry Bros & Rudd, London

Berry Bros. & Rudd is the UK’s oldest wine and spirits merchant and can trace its origins back to 1698 when the Widow Bourne founded a grocer shop opposite St. James’s Palace.

The historic wine shop at 3 St. James’s Street, which remains virtually unchanged since it was built in the 17th century.Today the present generations of Berrys and Rudds continue to manage the family-owned wine merchant business from the same premises.


Let us create for you a bespoke day or evening event at this exclusive venue at the heart of St James, central London.

At Berrys’, you can experience a Wine Tasting & Cellar Dinner with some of the the world’s iconic wine estates being introduced to you, within the 312-year-old vaulted London Cellars of Berry Bros & Rudd or the exclusive Townhouse.

From world renowned Bordeaux châteaux and Champagne Houses, to exclusive New World boutique wines, you can choose your preferred tasting for your guests, hosted by a Wine Master.

The historic cellars were converted in 1999 to create London’s most exclusive fine wine & dining venue: The Cellars. Located beneath the shop in the heart of central London, prior to their renovation these were the largest working cellars in the capital.
