Square Meal Review of Boisdale of Bishopsgate ?

Head down the alleyway beside Bishopsgate’s Dirty Dicks and you’ll discover Scotland à la Boisdale: a version characterised by hearty dishes, whisky aplenty and no trace of modernity. A boisterous ground-floor bar lies above a snug basement dining room decorated with red leather and dark wood. The cosy ambience, cultivated by a jazz pianist, attracts praise – although conversation on tables near the music becomes difficult. Food makes good use of north-of-the-border ingredients: Aberdeenshire beef cuts and lobster from the grill, Scottish game, fish and daily specials such as an aromatic herb-crusted lamb rump. Macsween haggis arrives with creamy mash and a noggin of Chivas Regal Scotch – from a hefty whisky list that’s worth perusing with a Cuban cigar. A domed cheese trolley makes for a grand finale; sommeliers will advise on ideal accompaniments from the mainly French wine list. Now open on Saturdays, Boisdale delivers Caledonian comforts immune to fashion.

    The original Boisdale (and arguably the best) is based in Victoria but we were invited to the Liverpool Street Boisdale that opened only a few weeks earlier. We walked through the little alleyway into the restaurant. It is situated underground and in true Boisdale style is dark and cosy.

    We booked at late notice but still had a fantastic seating location right next to the piano with an East end hipster playing jazz songs on the piano...
