Mr. Christian's was founded in September 1974 by Tim Dawson and Glynn Christian. In 1982 Glynn began his career as a BBC-TV cook on Pebble Mill at One and in 1983 began broadcasting three mornings a week on BBC-TV Breakfast Time. With Radio 2 broadcasts and book commissions added to his television cooking, Glynn withdrew from Mr. Christian's and Greg Scott, who had become manager, took over the business. In 2003, Mr. Christian's became part of The Jeroboams Group. Today, Mr. Christian's is a thriving foodie business, a destination draw for lovers of real food and fabulous flavours.
Jeroboams, London's largest independent retail wine merchant with a portfolio of over 2,000 wines, fine wines and Champagnes was originally established in 1985. After Mr Christian's became part of the Group, Jeroboams opened a wine shop next door at No 13 Elgin Crescent in October 2004, with a wonderful range of wines together with a large selection of Champagnes, select fine and rare whiskies and a fine wine cave towards the back of the shop.
