Our Approach

Fourth & Church was born out of desire to share great food and drink in a casual, comfortable and friendly space. Our approach to wine is informal, yet informative and we can adapt the pace and information given to suit any level of wine knowledge. So don't worry about what you may or may not know about wine, its all about having some fun!.

We will introduce you to some familiar styles of wine and some styles you may not have come across before. The team will talk about each wine to help you identify what you like to drink, how to find more of the same, and how to navigate some of the terminology surrounding the many types of grape juice!

Your wine tasting will be hosted by one of our expert team members, who will personally share their knowledge and experience. They will talk you through each wine while you taste, then leave you to have a little chat amongst yourselves prior to the next taster.

Our tasting experiences typically last around 2 hours and are available for small groups of just 2,  and up to 12 people. Options available are outlined below.

Private wine tasting experience (6 wines, £30 per head for 2 - 4 people, £27.50 per head for 5 - 12 people)

This is a privately hosted tasting for your group, from 2 to 12 people. Private simply means you have a host dedicated to just your group, it doesn’t mean you have the whole restaurant to yourselves unless you have booked our private dining room.

If you are more than 8, we can accommodate your party of up to 12 in our private tasting room. At certain times of the week, we can host a larger group in the restaurant (subject to timings and availability)

One of our team will introduce you to some basics of wine and wine tasting and talk you through six wines, they will answer any wine-related questions that you may have throughout the tasting.

We aim to keep our tastings interesting and a little different, the lineup of wines change weekly and the team all have their personal approach to hosting your experience.

The price includes nibbles such as our selection of bread with olive oil and mixed olives.

Why not take a look at our menu of small plates, charcuterie and artisan cheese to add to your experience? The team will also be very happy to suggest some food matches with any of the wines that you are tasting.

If you’d like to try something different like Sparkling wine, Champagne, Sherry or Vermouths we are really happy to arrange any sort of tasting experience to suit your requirement and budget. Just get in touch.

Some Questions you may have

How many wines will I taste?

Six wines is the norm including a glass of fizz on arrival.

What will we be tasting?

All dependent on what we are tasting that week, always a selection based on what people may already know, as well as something we really love which you may not have come across before.

If you have a particular idea in mind, please feel free to discuss with us and we can build a tasting accordingly.

How long do tastings last?

They usually last around 2 hours, however, if you have a to be somewhere and need us to stick to a specific timing, just let us know. We are happy to work to your requirements.

Guests around the table

The charge for a tasting is priced as an experience and the educational aspect involved in addition to the actual wines being tasted. Therefore it is difficult to have a tasting, particularly with a small group, with members of the group not participating.

Payment terms

We ask for debit/credit card details to secure the tasting at the time of booking.

Full payment including any extras can be made at the end of the tasting session.

We will charge 50% of the total tasting cost should your party fail to turn up for the tasting without letting us know 48 hours in advance.
