The Stafford Wine Cellar – A truly Spectacular Space


A compelling history lies beneath The Stafford London in its 380-year-old Wine Cellars.

Built in the 17th Century by Lord Francis Godolphin, and used as an air-raid shelter in World War II, these fascinating cellars house up to 8,000 bottles of the finest wines.

Wine Tasting in London’s Historic Heart

Today, Master Sommelier, Gino Nardella, hosts wine tastings and wine-pairing dinners throughout the year. With over 40 years of experience at The Stafford alone, there isn’t a bottle he hasn’t tried which rests beneath the hotel.

When booking an event in our Cellar’s, the team can arrange to make them as formal or as informal as you like. The tasting can be themed or tasted blind to add a competitive aspect to your evening.

The Wine Cellars offer the following capacities for your private events:

  • Oval Table: 32 guests
  • Sprigs Table: 44 guests
  • Drinks Reception: 70 guests

A most unique wine tasting experience in the heart of London. For bookings or enquiries please contact our Meetings and Events Team:
