Description

The wine bar to Michelin-starred restaurant, Club Gascon, Cellar Gascon is a relaxed bar on the outskirts of London's historic Smithfield market. The atmosphere oozes provincial French charm.

Cellar Gascon is known for its wines, and the list features high-quality producers from South-West France; with over 200 varieties included, mostly exclusive to Cellar Gascon. There are also more than 20 monthly changing wines available by the glass. With a belief in pairing wines alongside cuisine local to the same region, the Pascal Aussignac-designed menu re-imagines honest, simple and rustic Gascon fare into award-winning small plates. Each dish is created using the finest ingredients from Gascony - encompassing Bordeaux down to Biarritz and then across the Pyrenees to Toulouse and back.

This exclusive-to-TRULY experience gives you the chance to sample six unique French cheeses from Cellar Gascon’s curated ‘Prairie’ menu. Savour two goats’, two ewes’ and two cows’ cheeses such as Comte – a cow’s milk cheese with roasted-nut aromas and a sweet finish – and Fourme d’ambert – a very mild blue ewe’s cheese with a history older than the Roquefort Cheese. Gain an insight into the art of a sommelier as cheeses are served in pairs, with each dish accompanied by a glass of expertly matched wine.

Reviews

  • Cheese and wine pairing

    We waited a good half hour to start our experience. We were then simply presented with 3 wines and a plate of cheese and given minimal details of their origins. We would have expected much more information and almost a lesson on the pairing of the cheese and wine, to make it feel like an "experience". It did not seem very good value for money, although the cheese was delicious!

    Nice experience

    It was a really nice experience. It felt very personal and the later who served us was very friendly and helpful

  • Great experience!

    Lovely waitress who treated us to a birthday drink, didn't push for a tip but how could we not, she was great and so was the wine and cheese! Xxx

    Lovely gift for pre- theatre experience

    Lovely choice of wines and cheeses. Nice staff and venue. Very small pieces of cheese but overall v nice.
