At the base of Salesforce Tower on Bishopsgate, The Drift is a spectacular venue from Drake and Morgan: the team behind The Folly, The Anthologist, The Parlour and The Refinery. A huge, modern space houses an emporium of quirky tidbits, a mixology table and a contemporary kitchen.

A kaleidoscopic menu at The Drift ranges from British classic cottage pie, reworked with pancetta and swede mash, to prawn lollipops and katsu fries. Succulent steaks can be upgraded to surf ‘n’ turf with a half Scottish lobster, while a breakfast and brunch menu offers a variety of options from around the world alongside innovative cocktail recipes, like the breakfast martini.

A 30-page drinks list at The Drift in London provides a spectrum of offerings, from fairy-tale inspired cocktails to hearty draught beers, while a salted caramel milkshake is made with bulleit bourbon and chocolate bitters. All drinks are muddled by The Drift’s expert bar staff, from whom mixology and flambé classes are available.

The Drift is a 3-minute walk from Liverpool Street Station, at 110 Bishopsgate.

    Food and service good as always. Booked an evening and didn't realise there would be a disco not an oasis of tranquility as sated on the website. I would go back for lunch but never again in the evening

    The Drift is a nice modern bar restaurant we had booked for dinner at 7pm but arrived early. We were able to get seated earlier by the very friendly hostess. The service was a little slow but the staff were very polite and friendly so that didn't matter so much. The menu is very tempting but sadly the main course didn't live up to expectations. Overall the experience was ok I would go again to see if it was just a one off.

    Good location. Good and reasonably priced menu. Dined on a Tuesday evening, was busy but service was attentive but not overpowering and the food came out quickly and was good for the price
