Whole Foods takes up most of the ground floor and basement of what was the old Barkers department store. As well as a good selection of bottles, reasonably priced and to be found on the ground floor and in a fridge in the basement, there’s a bar with around five taps. You can have a drink there or buy growlers to take away. The beers include several from London brewers as well as foreign bottles, for example from Belgium and the USA.

Whole Foods is a massive premium supermarket located on Kensington High Street. There’s a decent selection of beers on offer, perhaps 50-60 different bottles. The focus is on approachable beers with a premium image. Good selection of German beers, some stuff from BrewDog. You can always find plenty of options from Sierra Nevada and The Kernel. Despite the food being very expensive, the beer prices are actually quite good, and I’ve scored some pretty nice deals in the past. They’re the only shop in London that does growler fills (as far as I know). I’ve never seen anyone fill a growler here before, so who knows how fresh the beer would be. The store’s clean, the ambiance is fine, the service is professional. Worth a look if you’re in the area. There’s no other bottle shops near here, apart from Waitrose (another supermarket).

This part of town is pretty bleak for both pubs and bottle shops. Whole Foods is a notable exception, though, and has a very decent selection of beers. You won’t find anything particularly special or rare, but you could likely find something you haven’t had before. Prices are fair. Certainly worth checking out if you’re in this area.

Hunting out good bottled beer in London is tricky but Whole Foods Market in Kensington is second on my most visited beer bottle shop after Kris Wines. Situated in the basement floor of the organic supermarket, they feature a range of international beers focusing on UK and America and then a handful of Belgian, German and International ales. Highlights are six packs of Anchor steam, porter, Brooklyn lager, Blue Moon, Goose Island, Samuel Adams and Flying Dog. UK bottles include Samuel Smiths, Wells & Youngs, Brewdog, St. Peters, Sharps. Others include Delirium Tremens, Schlenkerla, Zatec, and Dogfish Head.
