Square Meal Review of Boisdale of Canary Wharf ?

Don’t be deceived by the tiny entrance of this Caledonian outpost: follow the tartan carpet to an enormous first-floor expanse and breathe in cigar smoke on the terrace overlooking Cabot Square’s fountains. Then ascend again to another vast dining room and a long bar, replete with whiskies. Boisdale’s unique brand of good living (including regular live jazz) was brought to London 25 years ago by bon vivant Ranald Macdonald – and it proves especially popular with business diners. Rich red walls, more tartan and the odd bit of taxidermy evoke a Scottish hunting lodge, as do starters of mini haggis or smoked salmon. Huge slabs of Aberdeenshire steak might follow, but we particularly savour the rich venison pie. The selection of Scotch whisky is among London’s finest; ask the friendly, knowledgeable bar staff for recommendations. Otherwise, choose something from the well-priced, mainly European wine list, sit back and relish the vivacious atmosphere.

  1. We have only eaten in Canary Wharf a couple of times and on both occasions we’ve been left feeling a little flat and disappointed. It seems to us that the restaurants here don’t have to try too hard to keep up standards, due to the fact that they have a captive (and very monied) audience. These establishments don’t even have to be competitively priced or follow the food trends sweeping the rest of London. When we were invited along to the Boisdale of Canary Wharf we were hoping that all the above comments would be proved wrong, but sadly not...

  1. Cabot Square, Canary Wharf is just off the main shopping area and as such has a slightly quieter, classier feel. On our way to Boisdale for dinner we stopped off at Iberico for apperitifs and I kept looking longingly at the legs of Iberico Jamon…we’ll definitely be back when there’s no dietary constraint like an evening meal already booked elsewhere!

    Boisdale itself runs across two floors of a large building running the length of one side of the square. The first floor grill has a cigar terrace and open area for drinking as well as a grill for slightly less formal dining. Upstairs the formal restaurant...
