Champagne and Fromage

I love cheese and even more than that I love bubbles (both of the champagne and bath variety). 

So when I got the chance to go to Champagne and Fromage a bistro in Covent Garden that does both cheese and champagne I was really looking forward to it. What better way to spend a Monday evening after work than eating cheese and supping champagne. 

Champagne and Cheese
The shop from the outside looks unassuming but looks can be deceiving inside is a shop that reminds me of a true French fromagerie. If you are visiting London this really is a must. 

Champagne and Fromage

The shop sells over 25 award winning Champagnes, so what better way to start our evening than sampling some. 


We opt for a bottle of Champagne Philippe Dechelle Brut, which has 33% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Noir and 34% Pinot Memier. But the Bistro also sells Champagne by the glass at £9 - £18.

The bistro has lots of lovely food on offer (menu) from cheese, charcuteries, tartinnes, salads, Foie Gras, snails and baked cheese.  

For us the choice was easy we opted for cheese and cured meat boards (£8 each). 


The shop offers over 30 soft and hard cheeses. For us the selection was easy we opt for Roquefort and Brie.

The Corsican cured meats are a delicious accompaniment to the cheese.

If you are looking for a hidden gem in the heart of London well this could be it. Champagne and Fromage really could be my new London secret, well that was until I shared it with you all. 

We had a really lovely time. 

Got a good London restaurant to share?

  1. I've heard great things about this place but never had a chance to visit. I really looks wonderful. I love the idea of putting two things together that people love and making such a simple concept restaurant.
    Lots of love,

    1. Definitely putting cheese and champagne together in a restaurant is a winning combination x

  2. Love your Monday evening :-) We wouldn't have a clue about what champagne to choose? What made you opt for the Champagne Philippe Dechelle Brut? Sounds lovely :-)

  3. It was definitely a good start to the week. I love Pinot Noir and the Champagne picked went excellently with soft cheese. But the wonderful thing about Champagne and Fromage there is no pretension so they will help you select a champagne that goes with the food you are eating. By the glass you can't go wrong. Hope you are both well Lucy x

  4. This place sounds amazing! Champagne and cheese are two of my very favourite things! In fact, it's my husband's birthday on Thursday and we are planning to have champagne a baked camembert and other cheeses after a day out. x

    1. I have always wanted to try baked Camembert, I have eaten cold but my other half is not keen on warm cheese. Will have to do something to change that. Hope you, your husband and little girl have a great birthday day out, cheese and champagne feast. Lucy x

  5. Amazing photos, the food looks delicious!!

  6. I love cheese and champagne! We often do wine and cheese/olives nights at home, this place seems perfect. I'll have to make a mental note of it if I go to London anytime soon!
