Square Meal Review of Smithy's Wine Bar & Restaurant ?

Historic coaching house meets civilised tavern at Smithy’s, taking you back a step in time. Once a stable block for London’s omnibus-pulling shire horses, the atmospheric, dark-panelled space now comprises a rather bucolic bar & a raised dining area – although drinking is the most popular pursuit here. Wines from around the world are colourfully organised by style, while beer buffs can quaff pints of Timothy Taylor Landlord, Harvey’s Best & Sharp’s Doom Bar; there are also seven on-tap lagers (including San Miguel & Budvar) & a choice of bottled stuff, too. The British menu looks promising enough (asparagus with poached egg & hollandaise, braised lamb with sweet-potato mash, rhubarb & custard), but reports of ‘unedifying’ food & ‘arrogant’ staff may explain why the handsome-looking dining room is often deserted.
