Bottle Shop, The


The Bottle Shop has built a formidable reputation since opening in Canterbury a few years' ago; in terms of range and quality, it is one of the very best beer-focused off-licenses in the UK. But you don't have to go to Canterbury any more to experience The Bottle Shop (although you should, if only to visit the Good Sheds, the amazing indoor farmers' market where its based): from April 2014, they've been open on Saturdays between 10am and 6pm at their new site in South London. You can drink on the premises (there are two keg lines) and there's 25 per cent off single-case purchases. Another good reason to head for Bermondsey on Saturday.
