The team are delighted to publish the following diary dates for the September to November period.
Magnums and More...20% off all wines in large format bottles
Every Monday evening at Boundary restaurant and every Friday lunch and dinner at Lutyens restaurant.
Boundary restaurant has become known for its award-winning wine list and, specifically, the collection of wines in magnums, jeroboams, imperials and other large format bottles. Part of the reason for this reputation is the customer-friendly pricing policy that it operates - all wines in large format bottles are priced at lower margins than single bottles. Plus, on Mondays, a further 20% discount is applied against the published selling price.
With effect from Friday, 7 September, sister restaurant Lutyens is joining the party and has stocked its cellar in anticipation. Wine is always better from these eye-catching bottles, and the list includes a broad range of wines; from rare Riesling to great value Mâcon, and, of course, outstanding top Bordeaux and Burgundy wines. These large formats are ideal for celebrations and are also available to those booking private dining rooms at Boundary and Lutyens. So, join us for dinner and bring some friends.
Magnums, Jeroboams, Imperials, Methuselah, Salmanazar, Balthazar, Nebuchadnezzar...

Magnums and More … with Diarmid O’Hara.
This event aims to explain and discuss why wine is better from magnums and how it evolves in the bottle.

Plus, there will be a couple of unusual wines from magnums before finishing with a spectacular wine; Hermitage, JL Chave 1992 en magnum. The evening will start at 7pm with Delamotte Blanc de Blancs from magnums, obviously, followed by a four-course dinner at 7.30pm Tickets are £125pp.
