    About Bird of Smithfield

    729 824

    Spread over all five storeys of a handsome Georgian townhouse, Bird of Smithfield is owned by Alan Bird, formerly of The Ivy and the Soho House Group. The multi-level venue boasts two bar-lounges, a restaurant, and a private dining room all crowned with a swanky roof terrace overlooking the bustle of Smithfield Market. The ground floor bar has a retro 1960s vibe, all bold colours and statement furniture, and there's a hip basement space, The Birdcage, which stays open until 2am and is ideal for a post-prandial tipple. Drinks include the Vertically Challenged, a mix of Prosecco and Rhubarb (always a good combination in our book), the Bitter Split is a mix of raspberries, gin and Campari, and the Upset Applecart, which pairs cognac with bergamot and is finished with a sherbet rim (no sniggering). Bar snacks include crispy fish finger sandwiches, a Smokin' Bird burger, beetroot cured salmon and the increasingly popular gull's egg. The food in the restaurant is also of a very high standard (with the prices to match), with Bird's taste in high-end comfort food coming through in the menu. There has been talk of patchy and erratic service but it's early days yet and there's a lot here to like, particularly that terrace.
