Review of Poly
Located in the Paramount House Hotel, Poly is an intimate wine bar brought to us by Mat Lindsay, the man behind much the much loved Ester.
The interior is smart, but sparse with concrete flooring, plenty of wooden tables (many communal) and white washed walls.
Poly is at heart a wine bar, and the wine list is extensive, with a focus on natural, biodynamic and organic wines. Good to see a number of wines also offered by the glass. Cocktails play a part with Poly’s signature being a take on a Negroni.
But, food is certainly not an after thought. The kitchen cooks solely with coals, so expect to find grilled, smoked and slow roasted dishes on the constantly changing snack menu. Whilst the food menu is small, you are sure to find enough interesting options to make up a nibble or two or to create a share style dinner.
I think Poly works equally well for a pre or post dinner drink, or as a dinner venue in itself. Also a great date night spot. Whilst Poly may call itself a wine bar, good to know, the food is top notch too.
