Combining local pub style with a city location, Shaws Booksellers in London serves classic British food with continental touches. With the premium real ales of a Fuller’s pub on tap, Shaws Booksellers’ elegant curved facade leads to a quirky but chic split-level bar.

The Shaws Booksellers menu changes daily, but typical dishes include rack of lamb with butternut squash puree, or salmon with braised lentils and kale. Vegetarian choices include Gorgonzola, artichoke and caramelised chicory salad.

Among its homely desserts, Shaws Booksellers serves up lemon posset and rhubarb and almond crumble. As well as carefully stored ales, the bar has plenty of wines and spirits – check the chalk board for details of Shaws’ diverse range.

Rustic stripped floors and comfy leather sofas give Shaws Booksellers a relaxed, informal vibe. Lying close to the South Bank and St Paul’s Cathedral, The Shaws Booksellers restaurant is a 3-minute walk from London Blackfriars Station.

    ok Shaws booksellers at public House and restaurant has been a favourite of mine for some years but has seen a rapid turnover of Eastern European excellent staff and no under pining of this with good General management.The result was "this table is unavailable and offering the worst tables even though you booked 2 days before.The Tuna dish requested rare came well done and on return over well done.Disappointing.New chef? ill trained staff ? but perhaps friday a day to avoid

    The food, wine and service were all excellent. It was a very pleasant experience

  • ((((( 19 December 2015 by Leigh Himsworth from London

    Excellent as usual. The whole thing ticks all boxes, whilst in the City it feels pleasantly set back. Every choice on the menu is great, service is pleasant - which everywhere to reach this level.

    Always a top quality burger on the menu and proper chunky chips (probably dripping fried as they're so good) but normally also a risotto, every single one I've tried has been incredibly delicately flavoured and moreish. Today I tried a fennel main course salad and it didn't disappoint. Shaw's food always manages to hit the flavours even with a simple salad. I wish they had the similar menu in the evening too! Evenings are more like bar snacks only.
    Good for friends or business lunches. But it's also a great place to just chill out and drink in the evenings.
    Service always friendly and efficient. Table service for lunch meals.

    Always look forward to burger fridays. A great start to the weekend.

    Without the a place where you can be very chilled alone but at the same time, be with a crowd of people and the atmosphere is a complete buzz. Excellent music, great food with superb service....Quality
