The Grape Variety, Chipstead & Dorking
For all things wine - you'll want to know about The Grape Variety, a cool indie wine bar and café and wine merchant with branches in Chipstead and Dorking.
The Grape Variety first opened in Chipstead in 2018 offering up a relaxed and cool place to hang out and something unique to Chipstead. Fast forward to December 2021, and the The Grape Variety has expanded and opened a branch in Dorking.
Wine is the main event, although the sharing platters are have established a fan-club of their own – and in the time both venues have been open, they’ve gained a steady and loyal following. It’s rare this place isn’t bustling and busy.
Of course, there’s more than just wine on the menu – it’s open from 12noon, and during the day serves up a mean coffee (or tea), with an offering of cake on the side, natch! Cocktails, too, feature on the menu as well as beers and ales.
The wine shop has a great selection of red, white and rosé wine, plus Champagne and sparkling wine and spirits. There’s also a wine subscription service offering free delivery on orders over £100.
They also offer a party planning service.
