Terroirs has permanently closed its central London natural wine bar and restaurant in Covent Garden.

In an announcement on Instagram​,​ the group said it had taken the 'tough decision' to close the doors at Terroirs Central for good, but did not give a reason for the closure. 

The statement read: "It is with a very heavy heart, but also a lot of happy memories, that we have taken the tough decision to close the doors at Terroirs Central, for good.

"It has been an amazing journey, and we have made so many friends along the way. We’d like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us over the last 13 years.

"From our amazing team to our beautiful guests, we literally couldn’t have done it without you."

Terroirs was one of London's first natural wine bars, and was a renowned industry hangout. 

It was founded in 2008 by Ed Wilson, Oli Barker, and Eric Narioo of UK-based wine importing company Les Caves de Pyrene.

The group subsequently opened beloved Mediterranean restaurant Brawn in East London, which Wilson eventually took over and continues to oversee.

Narioo continues to oversee the Terroirs Restaurant Group, which also operates a site in East Dulwich, as well as Parisian-style neighbourhood restaurant and wine bar Soif in Battersea; both of which continue to operate.

The statement added: "For anyone panicking about charcuterie withdrawal, or a natural wine fix, rest assured that Terroirs East Dulwich and Soif (Battersea) will continue to trade as normal and the teams there, supplemented by some familiar faces from central, will look forward to welcoming you."
