Bar A Vins adds a superbly Gallic flavour to shopping. Run by the irrepressible Luc Gilles and his wife, Bar A Vins is one of those places that can bring joy to choosing a wine. The petite shop is crammed full of French wines. Luc is highly knowledgeable about wine and he says he has hand-picked each bottle. You get a sense that Luc is well-equipped to offer wines and some real gems.

If you want an authentic French wine buying experience from a thoroughly French seller then this outlet won’t dissappoint. What’s more if you visit in winter, you can buy your booty then go ice skating in the square outside.

Open: Monday to Saturday 9.00 am to 7pm, Sunday 9.30pm to 3.00pm. Closed Wednesday
