The Bleeding Heart celebrates 30 years with 1983 prices

London's Bleeding Heart restaurant celebrates its 30th anniversary this month by selling its house wine at 1983 prices - 95p a glass.

The restaurant, founded by Robert and Robyn Wilson, opened in 1983 beneath the cobbles of the Bleeding Heart Yard in the City.

At the time, it was a 40-seat basement wine bar, but has expanded and can now accommodate 400 customers in a restaurant, bistro and terrace, tavern and private dining rooms.

It now employs 90 staff and a 37-strong kitchen brigade, while its wine list has won the Wine Spectator Most Outstanding Wine List award a number of times.

The house wine on sale will come from the Wilsons' vineyard, Trinity Hill in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.

There will also be a selection of dishes from the original menu, including the most popular starter of the day, a friture of champignons with sauce tartare at £1.95, and rillettes de porc, also at £1.95.

Throughout the next week the tavern will also be offering a selection of dishes at 1983 prices, and the bistro will be serving a three-course menu at £9.83, and the flagship restaurant will offer a five-course menu at £19.83.
