Following the success of its artisan bakery and café chain, Gail’s has launched its first restaurant proper – an all-day venue done out in soft grey tones, serving eclectic snacks and small plates
as well as its much-vaunted breads and pastries. Located alongside the reception area of Bloomsbury’s myhotel, it’s not only a handy drop-in for guests but is also pitched at the local passing
trade, with a dozen barstools overlooking the open kitchen. Bread naturally underpins much of the menu, from Taleggio and truffle-cream toasties to satisfyingly rich smoked mackerel rillettes
served with wafer-thin slices of toasted rye, but also expect meatier dishes such as slow-cooked oxtail with baked ratte potato. Prices are a touch high, but don’t leave without trying the
show-stealing desserts – gooey chocolate-chip cookies straight from the oven, for example. There’s a branch of Gail’s Bakery next door.
If you’ve been to a Gail’s Bakery, then you’ll have some idea of the feel of the place. Gail’s Kitchen is their new restaurant. It will be no surprise to you that bread is a key element in their offering and given my deep and enduring love of carbohydrate, this makes me very happy.And on top of the excellent bread selection, that comes as you sit down, you can have some more bread-y things as you go along.The waitress politely suggested that Renaissance Man and I had chosen too much food. She doesn’t know me. I suspect that we could have done justice to our original selection, but no-one, least...

Gail’s Kitchen - a recent offshoot of the bakery with ex River Cafe chef James Adams fronting the kitchen.

This review of Gail’s bakery will be short and sweet…much like what our experience was like when visiting them after an excellent lunch at Morito. The desserts at Gail’s bakery are excellent and it’s an excellent spot to just hang, drink some coffee and munch on some delish desserts...

We met up in our lunch hour to partake of this meal. It’s naïve and foolish to believe you can fit a proper meal in an hour, especially when getting to the restaurant requires literally minutes of power walking. We are serial worriers and aren’t the types to believe that none of our colleagues would notice if we were slightly liberal with the prescribed 60 minutes (to be honest, in Chris’s case he could have taken the whole afternoon because we doubt anyone has noticed he even works there). Still, we were keen to return on time and were therefore on edge. This was not helped by the blazing sun streaming through the...
