Dennis Reus – PROJECT MANAGER for opening of BOB's Lobster Wine Bar & Kitchen and Bedales of Borough (re-opening)


Where is home for you?

I was born in Holland.

What brought you to London?

I was bored of my day to day life back home and needed a change of surroundings!

What is it about wine that you love?

The mellowness

When someone visits you in London, where MUST you take them?

Fernandez & Wells on Lexington Street, Soho.

Where was the last place you ate, that just blew your mind?

On a recent visit to Rome, I had a Brioche bun filled with this amazing creamy Gelato, which I thought was just the best thing in the world.

How'd did you end up in hospitality?

A month before coming to London, I was on holiday in Aruba, where I would go to this bar on the beach, and the people working there seemed to always have so much fun. A month later I ended up in London and behind the bar in Covent Garden.

What is your first memory of Bedales Wines?

I was impressed with the flow and the space of the building. The spiral staircase and the location is pretty amazing, great for people watching.

What is your go-to-grape?

If it is on the list, Sylvaner - otherwise Albarino or Riesling.

What are you drinking when not drinking wine?

Water or Beer.

What is your favourite dish on the menu at Bedales of Borough?

The Cheese & Charcuterie platter!

What always ends up coming with you in your suitcase?

On the way back? Cheese & Charcuterie!
