Squaremeal Review of Bleeding Heart Tavern ?

The laid-back brother to the neighbouring Bleeding Heart French restaurant and Bleeding Heart Bistro, this pub is as British as it gets. Pints are poured for Farringdon suits, while a broad range of diners eat in the relaxing basement; we witnessed dates, work dinners and a smart family group all tucking in. The formula is simple: well-priced, enjoyably familiar food. Our venison Scotch eggs arrived oozing and were matched with tangy cranberry relish, while a healthy portion of braised rabbit leg sat on a creamy bed of rice and tarragon sauce. Meaty suckling pig with crackling came classically dressed with rosemary potatoes and green beans; equally tempting was the daily fish option and a Scottish rib-eye for under £20. We’d recommend the more casual ground floor if you’re coming for a drink – draught Adnams ales, perhaps, or a choice of ten wines by the glass or carafe. The Tavern dates from 1746 and has kept its historic feel: if you need a classic London pub, this is it.

Private Dining at Bleeding Heart Tavern

For almost 30 years the privately-owned Bleeding Heart Restaurants in historic, cobble-stoned Bleeding Heart Yard have been the city’s first choice for entertaining. From business breakfast meetings, city dinners, weddings and wine tastings. For smaller private bookings hire one of the intimate private dining rooms. For larger events exclusive hire of the restaurants can be arranged.

For a unique setting and something of a celebration, opt for The Crypt in Ely Place adjoining Bleeding Heart Yard. With a history dating back to the 6th century, The Crypt famously hosted the grand wedding feast for Henry VIII and his first wife, Catherine of Aragon.

Extremely popular for intimate wedding receptions, providing a stunning backdrop for photographs with its stone walls, beamed ceilings and stained glass windows.

The Crypt also offers a great talking point at more business-orientated events and the space can be easily adapted to accommodate anything from corporate dinners to cocktail receptions and Christmas parties.
