Poptober, our annual celebration of Champagne & sparkling wine is here!

We love champagne at Dylans St Albans, and we have one of the best Champagne lists of any pub or restaurant in the area – in the whole of the Southeast, in fact! A few years back decided we wanted a way to share our passion with our customers and came up with the idea of Poptober, a whole month dedicated to the wonderful stuff. For us, Champagne is not just the preserve of special occasions, we believe that it can be enjoyed all year around as it pairs beautifully with food, as well as being enjoyed on its own.

During the whole month of Poptober we’ll be popping the corks on some stunning bottles, selling them by the glass. A rare and great value way to try something new and learn more about the category. We’re also bringing in experts in to tell you more about our favourites, as well as hosting some sparkling events, including a collaboration with fellow Top 100 Gastropub The Silver Cup and Billecart-Salmon (see event details), ad hoc Instagram lives and in-bar tastings.

To round of the month, we’ll be inviting you to join us for the grand opening of our prized and humongous ‘Salmanazar’ of Pol Roger – which is equal to 12 regular bottles and stands 25” high. To accompany this, head chef Josh Searle is creating some delicious canapes. 

To find out more about our fizzing schedule and be the first to know when tickets for our Pol Roger Poptober finale on 31st October go on sale, keep an eye on our Instagram page as we’re adding details daily.

For now, check out our Poptober Champagne menu below and tell your friends, as Champagne is better when shared.
