Harden's survey result
“In an out-of-the-way, historic courtyard in Farringdon” – where the terrace is a major draw in summer – this “delightful and atmospheric” Gallic brasserie continues to fly the flag for the Bleeding Heart brand. (Its grander, older sibling, in a nearby basement, closed in the pandemic. As of October 2021, future plans are not yet clear, although it seems likely a resurrection at some point may be on the cards). “Classic French dishes” are charmingly served at “fair prices”, the “evocative atmosphere makes it a romantic place” and the dependable wine selection continues to make it a favoured option for expense account types.
For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Bleeding Heart Bistro Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Always a great lunch at “the canteen” and great to be back after so long."
"Last few meals here haven't impressed sadly as it been a main stay quality restaurant of mine for many years. Food average (meat often chewy). Wine & cocktail list rather basic and service seems disinterested. Would hope they are able to re-open the main restaurant as it feels like the bistro is too much of shadow of the old Bleeding Heart to warrant booking again sad to say"
"Bistro a bit cramped"
