St Vincent is a wine-bar café where things are a little different. We’re a lunch-cafe, after-work drinks bar, breakfast-coffee spot, supper-with-friends place and general ‘snack-with-a-glass-or-two’ hang-out.
We keep interesting wines, serve food all day and have a big-hearted ‘everybody welcome’ attitude.
Inspired by neighbourhood bars we’ve found on our travels through France and Italy, we offer lesser-known wines, and simple food - small plates, big flavours - designed for sharing. We’re a place where an hour spins into several without anyone noticing.
Come on your own, or with friends. Share a bottle (or two), order a plate or three, or just breeze in for an espresso and a croissant. Or, frankly, just come in for a chat.
We open for breakfast and close late.
Enough said. Come and find out.
Our wines are at the heart of what we do. Reassuringly old-school - though not always familiar - they’re mainly from small, independent producers. We’ve chosen them because we like them.
Many are organic, some are bio-dynamic, others are natural while several are ‘skin contact’. There’s a healthy range of the ‘big classics’, too. Plenty by the glass with the selection changing regularly so you can be as adventurous as you like without breaking the bank.
We’re not just about wine; we offer vintage cocktails (recipes nicked from places we love), classy vermouths and soothing amaros, as well as craft beers and interesting shandies.
And, because we all need a caffeine fix, expertly made coffees.
Our wine tasting experiences aren’t quite the traditional, one-off, special ticketed events you may be used to. At St Vincent, we’re both informative and informal – you’ll taste our wines at your leisure, for your pleasure! Whether there’s just 2 of you, or more. Your server will take care of you, introducing the selection of wines you are going to try as well as explaining which elements from the sharing platters best complement each of the wines you’ll taste.
Your server will bring you the wines (125ml) one by one, each time discussing it with you, and in between leaving you to enjoy the experience at your leisure.
Please call to make your reservation on 0191 232 1331.
Our food is about simple things done well, whether a plate of hand-crafted charcuterie, a bowl of steaming mussels or a comforting dish of macaroni cheese (albeit with truffles). We’re big on flavour and low on fuss. Like our wines, we source mainly from small, independent producers.
Drop by anytime and we will feed you. How about some breakfast granola, orange polenta cake, or a quick croque monsieur to see you through that mid-afternoon dip?
Lunchtimes and evenings our kitchen is going full-throttle creating punchy meals on small plates; perfect for sharing. We don’t do starters and mains; we just cook dishes lovingly, and serve them up.
