Welcome to Bleeding Heart Restaurants

Book for The Bistro

Please note that due to our licensing, we are only allowed to serve drinks with substantial meal. Tables cannot be booked for drinks only.

Bleeding Heart’s long-established and extremely popular French Restaurants offers superb food in historical surroundings within the centre of London. It takes its name from the yard where it is located which, according to the history books, was named after a 17th-century beauty, Lady Elizabeth Hatton, who was found murdered there.

The Bistro

Our busy buzzy French Bistro with all year round outdoor seating
 with its striking 19th Century French wine posters and eccentric Vineyard Sculpture combines a warm ambience and cheerful yet professional service with traditional French dishes plus a great-value list of 450 wines by the bottle and more than a dozen by the glass. It has been noted by City AM as “the best French Bistro in London”. The Bistro has a 60 seat Terrace, highly popular throughout the summer for its Lobster dishes and its chilled Rose.

The Tavern 

The Tavern will open in sparkling new form in January, 2022.

In the meantime the ground floor is a remarkable Private Dining space for parties of up to 24 for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Monday to Saturday.

Downstairs the Dining Room can seat up to 50.

A popular option is to use the whole premises and host your pre-dinner drinks and canapes upstairs before going downstairs to dinner.

is our Gastropub, open from 11 am to 11 pm. Its history stretches back to 1746 when its slogan was ‘drunk for a penny and dead drunk for two pence’. That spirit of good cheer continues today with real ales from Adnams, an extensive range of wines by the glass and a great–value menu ranging from a very generous Full English Breakfast with warm baguettes and croissants from our own bakery, to Spit- Roasted Suckling Pigs, Free-range Chickens and a noted Suffolk Lamb burger.
