There’s no need to feel soif (thirsty) if you’re on Battersea Rise and looking for a good wine bar. Les Caves de Pyrene, the wine importers behind the acclaimed Terroirs and Brawn, have opened a third wine bar near Clapham Junction station with their customary focus on ‘natural’ wines and rustic French food. It’s already heavingly busy, but if you can get a table, it really is worth it for the terrific dishes, the lovely service, and the happy buzz. Guy Dimond
