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 treats. On the burger side, there is the classic cheese, bacon and BBQ sauce option, or diners can choose patties packed with truffle mayo, BBQ pulled pork and green chillies, or even a vegetarian choice of portobello mushroom, grilled halloumi and smoked paprika. There is spit-roast chicken from the rotisserie, and sides like fries topped with blue cheese.

Desserts at Bonfire restaurant at the Barbican are just as indulgent – there is salted caramel brownie with vanilla bean ice cream, and even gluten-free options like white chocolate cheesecake. On the drink menu, there are rich milkshakes, a choice of craft beers, and cocktails like classic mojitos and negronis.

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.
