Restaurant description

Bonfire is an industrial-chic eatery located on the first floor of the Barbican, London’s multi-purpose art centre. With a focus on seasonal, great quality ingredients, Bonfire’s menus offer the food everyone craves. Wholesome burgers, fiery chicken wings and indulgent milkshakes can be enjoyed in a relaxed, rustic setting overlooking the Barbican’s lakeside.

The Bonfire menu really packs in a great selection of flame-grilled burgers, wings and salads. On the burger side, choose from the likes of the classic Bonfire burger, the blue cheese and avocado burger or chicken options with the fiery buttermilk chicken burger, while vegetarian diners can opt for the squeaky cheese burger with grilled halloumi, red pepper, guacamole and rocket. There is buffalo hot sauce-coated chicken wings with a blue cheese dip, and sides like the 'Works' fries topped with melted cheese, bacon bits and onion.

Desserts at Bonfire restaurant at the Barbican are just as indulgent – there is the Bonfire chocolate sundae, the decadent banoffee mess and even a vegan chargrilled pineapple with vanilla ice cream. On the drinks list, find homemade lemonade, a choice of 100% British beers, wines and cocktails like the Bonfire Fizz with Martell Vs and Prosecco, a classic mojito and the Frost Bite with blue curacao, coconut vodka, pineapple juice and Sprite.

Bonfire in London is 5 minutes' walk from Barbican Tube Station.

    I liked it. It was friendly fast and good service. Nice food too. No cutlery or napkins but the waiting staff sorted this out. I enjoy a meal there before the concert. It's chilled and nice.

    Lovely freshly cooked burgers, delicious salads. We particularly enjoyed the Buffalo chicken burger, the Chilli jalapeno burger and the Cobb salad. The service was quick, friendly and just right for before an event at the Barbican. Highly recommended.

    Great food but poor service - it was busy but we couldn't get anyone to take our main or dessert orders. We had to ask for water three times and were served desserts but not given any spoons. A real pity as the food is really good.

    We really enjoyed our meal out on the balcony. Great tasting halloumi burger with avocado and very filling.
