Square Meal Review of Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack ?

If you fancy a fantasy trip to the seaside, without leaving the W1 postcode, Bonnie Gull’s deliberately dressed-down nautical ‘shack’ might just do the trick. Driftwood chairs, a mural fashioned from ropes and a trunk packed with native oysters set the tone at this dinky corner spot, while the menu sticks determinedly to its seafood theme (there are no token meat options here). Battered haddock with beef-dripping chips, homemade ketchup and mushy peas is the star turn, while the rest of the lively line-up ebbs and flows with the seasons: autumn might bring Scottish langoustine and Dorset crab bisque with chive cream, Newlyn hake with purple sprouting broccoli, ceps and celeriac fondant, or Looe monkfish with Amaretto and pumpkin broth, butternut squash, rainbow chard and pine-nut crumble. Drink British beer, white wine or a chilled red (at not particularly chilled prices).

    A Lot of Chop :: Bonnie Gull – Seafood Shack

    Earlier this year I tried ‘herring – three ways’ while staying with friends in Stockholm for midsummer celebrations. It was a revelation. So good I literally and drunkenly made a song and dance about it. So where to take our Swedish aficionado pals in London? A new seafood shack, with head chef Luke Robinson (Fifteen) at the helm, of course.

    I’d never been to a seafood shack before. To me a seafood shack conjured up images of blue and white checked tablecloths, baskets of food, lobster pliers, bibs and napkins. So, in a corner of Fitzrovia, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. As soon as we walked in we realised...

    The Celeriac :: Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack, Fitzrovia

    Londoners have been stuffing themselves so full of dirty burgers and greasy American nonsense lately that they’ve almost forgotten about the Great British Seaside. Bonnie Gull are putting that right, setting up shop in a fully themed beach shack in Fitzrovia. There’s bleached wood, a map showing the catch of the day and a treasure chest full of langoustines. What more could you want? It’s the latest in a long line of pop-ups gone permanent. Originally Bonnie Gull was just a seafood street food offering in Hackney...

    Fd Over LDN :: This

    Yet another pop-up to go permanent, this time in the guise of Bonnie Gull, who previously were seen as the Seafood Shack in hackney, and after a couple of projects they are now in this set up in Fitzrovia. All their seafood is British, and responsibly sourced. It will change every day depending on what's fresh, I suppose we'll wait and see if some things will be more regular than others. Reasonably priced, great seafood restaurants are hard to come by in London, but this place certainly fits the bill...

    She says: The pop-up-gone-permanent restaurant is an ever growing reality in London. The team behind Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack, now with a permanent residence in Fitzrovia have tried their hand at numerous projects, from their humble beginnings at Hackney to the more recent ’Bonnie-on-Sky’ summer stint at Platterform in London Bridge. The underlying theme has been simple and consistent throughout – bring the best of British seafood to the bustling heart of London. Step into the restaurant and the design and decor of Bonnie Gull will instantly remind you of the seaside, tables laden with a blue and white checked table...

  1. Small shiny seafood shack serves salty sustenance

    It’s fascinating what you’ll find in the back streets of London. Bonnie Gull is a seafood restaurant located on Foley Street, a quiet street located in a slice of city in between the thoroughfares of Oxford Street and Great Portland Street. The place has been done up to resemble a humble seaside shack – all wooden planks with a dash of nautical kitsch lining the walls. Bonnie Gull has replaced Back to Basics, an older seafood restaurant, at the same address but there’s no relation between the two as far as I can tell...

  1. Bonnie Gull started life as a pop-up in 2011, serving up excellent seafood - and a good dose of seaside nostalgia - from a pie 'n' mash shop in Hackney. One year later, and the popular seafood shack has been reborn as a permanent restaurant, newly ensconced in a cosy venue just north of Oxford Street. Despite its reincarnation, Bonnie Gull still feels very much like a seafood shack: with driftwood panelling,  blue and white-striped awning, and a muted colour-scheme, it has a distinctly coastal feel (even the barman was dressed in maritime stripes) - a little piece of the British seaside transported to the middle of...
