Spring is upon us and the booch is tasting amazing. It’s been a while since we did our last roundup of kombucha bars, and since then there’s been a booch explosion across the country. You’ll find Real Kombucha all over the place, so where to begin?! To answer that question, we thought we’d start a regular column rounding up some of the places you’ve simply got to go and get your booch on. 

This week, our favourite kombucha spots include… 

Duke of Sussex, Waterloo 

Boasting one of the best beer gardens South of the river, but also one of the cosiest fireplaces should the weather stay wintry, we love The Duke of Sussex in Waterloo. As well as serving Real Kombucha, it has an amazing menu – most famous for its spit-roasted chicken, brined and marinated for 24 hours to hold the flavour. A perfect place to #RejoinTheParty if you’re not drinking.  

Burger & Lobster (Harvey Nics), Knightsbridge 

There is nothing quite like a B&L combo, served alongside a glass of Royal Flush. Bring your biggest belly – the combo is an amphibious beast of gargantuan proportions – but it’s well worth the prep. Any branch of Burger & Lobster will do, but for a touch of class, head to the Harvey Nichols restaurant in Knightsbridge. No reservations at weekends, but take your chances. It’s worth it. 

The Tin Shed, Notting Hill

Sun,shiny table and aruncula. Perfect for brunch.

The perfect Sunday spot. Take a sunny morning stroll through Portobello Market and then make your way over to The Tin Shed, where cuteness and amazing all-day breakfasts reign supreme. Wash it all down with a glass of Dry Dragon and you’ll emerge sharp and sprightly from your boozeless brunch, ready to make the most of your day. 

Wulf & Lamb, Chelsea

The next time someone tries to tell you that plant-based food is unadventurous, truss them up and cart them off to Wulf & Lamb. Their menu for “ferocious herbivores” ticks all the boxes required of a thorough and gratuitous graze, with comfort food to the fore. They’ve been serving Real Kombucha down on Pavilion Road for as long as we can remember. One of our faves. 

Chiltern Firehouse, Marylebone

Now then. Time for some real luxury. If you’re up for a touch of snazz and fancy bumping shoulders with a few A-listers (see the Rami Malek post above), head to the award-winning bar at the Chiltern Firehouse. The garden area is gorgeous, but it’s the swanky, New York-esque interior that has jaws dropping, with its high ceilings, huge mirrors and hanging lights. Oh, and the kombucha is pretty spesh, too…

One Over the Ait, Brentford

Another great one for lazing the weekend away, One Over the Ait is a striking Fullers pub nestled just next to Kew Bridge with commanding views over the Thames. The food’s good (and the booch is unbelievable!) Get the right window-seat table and you could almost believe you were lounging riverside in subtropical climes. 

The Nest, Bramley

Everyone loves an independent coffee shop, don’t they? We’re huge fans of The Nest, a great little spot in Bramley, Surrey, that serves Real Kombucha alongside its fluffy jacket potatoes. It has a great little kids play area, meaning that there’s decent respite for parents looking to read their morning papers in (relative) peace. 

Bar Hercules, Soho 

Straight back into central London, and this place is about as good as it gets if you’re on the hunt for a classy kombucha cocktail. Officially a “cocktail pub”, Hercules is known for its extraordinary selection and the seemingly unending limits of its imagination. Award-winning bar king, Charles Roche, may have something to do with the latter. 

B&H Garden Room, Charing Cross

If you’re in the market for a boozeless brunch with a banging view, you’ll want to get yourself along to the B&H Garden Room by Bourne and Hollingsworth. Located 10 floors up, just behind the National Gallery, you can expect a rooftop bar with a brunch menu to die for. It doesn’t get much more #LivingMyBestLife than this! They don’t call it the Garden Room for nothing, either. Orange trees abound, and a river of booch floweth forth. 

The Gallimaufry, Bristol

While most of the choices on this week’s list are kombucha bars in London, we wouldn’t want you to think we’re caged in by the M25. You can get Real Kombucha all over the country now (check out our nationwide booch map), and one of our favourite spots outside the capital is The Gallimaufry on Gloucester Road, Bristol. Great food, amazing live nights, and the best alcohol alternatives in town. Get on it!

Check back in the next few weeks for another selection of amazing kombucha bars, pubs and restaurants across the UK. Drop us a line via our social media channels (Insta, FB, Twitter) if you fancy making a suggestion.
