Number 25 is a simple, elegant wine bar with global wines by the glass or bottle, plus lunchtime sharing platters and small plates. It is a perfect little hide away. Whether you want to sit somewhere were the music is not to loud or you want to have a few quiet afterwork drinks this is the place. Amazing friendly staff who will for sure remember you next time you come in.

Great place. Had a long awaited reunion with friends and found this lovely spot with plenty of seats, good nibbles and great wine. Also was not too busy on Friday night so could actually hear the conversation. Will definitely be back.

Good place for a quick, simple bite after work or before a night out. Menu fairly limited, however, staff swift and helpful. Impressive wine and cocktail list. Nice, cosy decor and friendly atmosphere.

Server doesn't listen and argue when a complaint is raised. Poor attention to detail in the kitchen. Insufficient number of staff to handle lunch volumes. Very good chips.

As always, No 25 was busy with lunchtime City diners. However, the service was swift and friendly and the food exactly as described. The perfect venue to enjoy a sandwich and bowl of sausages, with a glass of wine or beer.

I booked a table for dinner at this place for 6 people. When I arrived at the venue, I was shocked to find that they do not serve food! It was very embarrassing for me because the people I invited expected food! When I called the venue, nobody mentioned they did not serve food, and I was under the impression that we would get food..

Catching up with a friend and booked table at Number 25 which was waiting for us. Thought they did food in the evening but only available at lunchtimes. Nice little bar tucked away near Bank. Excellent bar service, quick, friendly and efficient considering it was near to Christmas and the place was busy. Small and great for a post work drink. A little gem.

I come here quite regularly and it does some nice sandwiches (My favourite is the Smoked Halibut and Red Leicester) and a very good selection of wine.

This was my first visit to Number 25 having walked past it on many occassions but not stopping. It has character but in fairness could do with a refubishment. All it was missing was the smokey atmosphere and you'd be back in the 80's. However, if this is your thing then it's worth a try.

Food was good with a reasonable menu. Not overpriced.

Service was also good.

Location is ideal for the City but if ambience is what you are after then this isn't it!

As I walked in to Number 25 Bircin Lane I was greeted by a friendly guy behind the bar who was expecting me, which was good - he even called me by my first name! The only slight issue was the loud music playing (my colleague is not too keen on this, as he likes to be able to talk without shouting!) so I mentioned it politely and the music was turned down slightly. Very limited menu but food good. Would possibly go back but with someone who I don't have a year's worth of catching up to do with - too much effort on the vocal chords!
