About this space

The Wine Crypt, as the name may suggest, is the oldest part of the building and secretly hidden away from the rest of the store on the lower ground floor. The dark wood panelling, carved oak furniture and Royal coat of arms over the fireplace reflects the age in which Fortnum & Mason was founded all those years ago, and provides an excellent and unique setting for an intimate dinner, wine tasting or drinks reception.
