I need to think, but my initial reaction is that I can't think of anywhere in London which serves colheita by the glass. Tawny with an indication of age or vintage port I can help with, but colheita...

How about Taverna in Smithfield market. It's worth you taking a look at the threads called "Hotel price list" and "restaurant price list" to see what we've found in the past.

I agree with Alex, that this maybe a bit of a challenge. One place you may try is the Port House on the Strand. I am not sure that you will find all the ports listed on the menu in the link, but the often have Kopke colheita shy the glass and some aged Tawnies. I hope you find somewhere and have a lovely weekend in town.

I agree with Simon - the Port House on Strand might be able to help you.

Though, as he alluded, their actual Ports available rarely match the ones listed on the menu exactly.
