Lovely restaurant with great attentive staff. We had the set menu which was great value, the heritage tomatoe salad was amazing. We also ordered a bottle of Prosseco which was one of the best bottles of Prosseco I've had. We chose to have our after dinner drinks on the roof terrace which was fab.

Bird of Smithfield is situated in a 5-storey Georgian townhouse complete with rooftop terrace. Sitting alongside London’s only functioning meat market, the abundance of fresh, local meat is far from surprising.

From head chef Tommy Boland, the Bird of Smithfield menu offers a delicious fusion of British gastronomy with French cooking influences. Try starters like Cornish mackerel with oyster, radish and pickled cucumber, followed by roasted turbot with celeriac purée with winter greens, charred potatoes, and hazelnut and black truffle pesto. Desserts include pistachio soufflé with bitter chocolate ice cream.

The dining room is stylishly decked out in tweed and herringbone fabrics, whilst the lounge bar, basement cocktail bar and roof terrace are equally well groomed. Regular food & drinks pop ups are also held at Bird of Smithfield.

Occupying an historic location, Bird of Smithfield is a 5-minute walk from Farringdon and Barbican train stations.

    The cooking in this restaurant is of very high quality. Head Chef Tommy Boland conjures wonderful flavours and combinations out of simple but high quality ingredients. The tasting menu is great value. The restaurant room is a warm and welcoming space with some really nice art works. All-in-all, highly recommended.

    Friendly and welcoming staff, they really take care of you.

    Amazing food, lamb and cod cooked to perfection.

    Lovely food. We had scallops and chicken parfait to start which were both delicious. Mains were cod, beef and lamb all of which were very nicely done, good portions and very tasty. We shared an Alaska bomb for dessert which was just right. Topped off with some attentive yet unobtrusive service it was a pleasant evening. Not an every day meal given the price but then the food was better than everyday.
