Keeping you safe during Covid-19

The Drop is open once more and we can’t wait to pop some bottles with you!

As is pertinent in this new age, at Harts Group we are following the government guidance and going even further to ensure that your experience with us is as safe and relaxed as possible.

We have completed a rigorous risk assessment and will be implementing procedures including the below:

  • Physical distancing, both in the dining rooms between stools or tables, and in the kitchens between our chefs. We have reduced the choice on menus a little to facilitate this.
  • We have introduced a healthcare app for all staff, who will complete a healthcare questionnaire, log regular hygiene practices and have their temperature taken at the beginning of their shift.
  • Each guest will have their temperature taken before entering the restaurant.
  • We have installed sanitising stations outside each restaurant and additional hand-washing dispensers outside bathrooms.
  • Cashless payments: we are not accepting cash at any Harts Group site and are encouraging contactless payments where possible.
  • Our staff are working in teams to reduce contact across the workforce.
  • We are providing paper menus, which will be recycled after one use.
  • We are providing facemasks to anyone who feels more comfortable wearing one.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon!

Wine of the month

This month we’re pouring out Alpine wines from France and Switzerland. These mountainous regions grow their grapes in cooler climates at high altitude, and as a result, are best known for high-acid whites and lighter bodied reds. We’ll have a few new bottles for you to try, including an earthy, unfiltered orange Amphore Klettgau, grown in the Swiss Alps; Didier Grappe Savagnin Ouille, a fresh, crisp white with high minerality; Domaine de la Touraize Ploussard, a light, lively young and juicy red made using regional grapes in Jura; and Yves Duport Pinot Noir, a delicate pinot from Bugey, well rounded with berry flavours. Try them whilst they last.

About us

The Drop is a wine bar and restaurant in Coal Drops Yard, King’s Cross, from the people behind Barrafina, Quo Vadis and El Pastor. We serve cheese and charcuterie, oysters and snacks, alongside carefully sourced wines, with a focus on provenance and personality.

For us, the joy of drinking wine is about a shared experience. For this reason, many of the bottles on our list come from winemakers who we’ve met on our travels, or who we admire for their ‘gently does it’ approach to making wine. We look to classic regions where young, dynamic winemakers are making a splash with their own take on tradition, as well as celebrating weird and wonderful wines from lesser-trodden corners of the globe. Whether you want to go off the beaten path, or find an old favourite — of which we’ll try to select the best or most exciting example — we’ve got you covered. For something special, just ask for our little black book, which has a rotating selection of our favourite, ‘when it’s gone, it’s gone’ wines.

Food-wise, we work simply with the best seasonal ingredients we can get our hands on. Beautiful meats, cheeses and vegetables, and the freshest oysters served from our cart. It’s broadly British, but we wouldn’t baulk at a burrata.

We also host private parties at The Drop. To find out more, please email our events team, here.
