About Bird of Smithfield

In 2012, Alan Bird quit The Ivy after two decades to set up on his own, and landed in this stylish Farringdon townhouse. The five-storey Bird of Smithfield promises something for just about everyone: a restaurant, a private dining room, a couple of bars and a roof terrace. The idea is that you start at the top – with Prosecco and canapés, perhaps, on the roof terrace – and then descend to the first-floor restaurant or the 30-seat PDR just above for some modern British dinner, and finally go subterranean for late-night cocktails. That basement bar, known as The Birdcage (see separate review), can host parties for up to 60 guests with space for a DJ or live band.

Venue review of The Lounge and Birdcage at Bird of Smithfield

Between 14 July and 14 September the Clerkenwell restaurant’s Private Room can be booked exclusively for £100. A complimentary glass of sparkling wine and welcome canapés will be thrown in to sweeten the deal.
