Owner's description

The busy buzzy Bistro, high ceiling and high windows, with its striking 19th Century French wine posters is the perfect place for an informal business lunch with a colleague or a jolly supper with a group of chums. Certainly, the bistro’s sunny terrace, shaded by a huge red awning, seems far away from the streets of Farringdon. With its professional, friendly service and warm ambience, the Bistro offers both traditional and modern French fare ranging from classic omelettes, coq au vin and steak frites to breast of duck and shank of lamb, plus a great-value list of 450 wines by the bottle.

Private Dining in London at Bleeding Heart
We have a number of Charming and Atmospheric Private Dining Rooms seating from 12 to 120 all offering the warm hospitality and impeccable service for which Bleeding Heart is noted throughout the City of London.
For over 30 years, The Private Dining Rooms, at the privately-owned Bleeding Heart Restaurants in historic, cobble-stoned Bleeding Heart Yard have been the city of London’s first choice for client entertaining, business meetings, banquets, weddings, wine tastings and any event that calls for a celebration.
Perfectly situated, midway between the City and London’s West End, Bleeding Heart Yard is but a 3-minute walk from Farringdon Station, from where it is one stop on the underground to both Barbican and Kings Cross, or a 5-minute walk from Chancery Lane station and Holborn.
Its history is fascinating: in 1626, Bleeding Heart Yard was the scene of a gruesome murder of the 17th century society heiress, the beautiful but wayward Lady Elizabeth Hatton, by a spurned lover, alleged to be a noted European ambassador.
Its venues are unrivalled in their diversity: six individually decorated Private Dining Rooms attached to three very distinct restaurants in and around the Yard – The Bleeding Heart’s French Restaurant, Bistro and Traditional British Tavern.
We can host events for 12 to 150 people seven days a week and we are justly proud of our experienced and personable Private Events Team who will help you choose which of our private or semi-private rooms will provide the right setting for your event, whether it is a breakfast lunch, dinner or dinner party.
