Don't be fooled by the Bleeding Heat, it's a French Bistro of average quality masquerading masterfully as "arguably the best French in the City. I would argue that It isn't.
I have been on two occasions, the first time I was unimpressed and to give it the benefit of doubt I went back and was again unimpressed.
The best thing about this place is not the overpriced food or the oppressive dining room or the braying drunk barristers occupying almost every table, it is in fact the history of how it got its name. Lady Hatton was torn limb from limb by a jealous lover in the courtyard with her heart still pumping ie Bleeding Heart. It’s a macabre and fascinating tale, it’s just a shame that they built a restaurant around it.
