Welcome to The Bleeding Heart Restaurants

Bleeding Heart’s long–established and extremely popular French Restaurant 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 warm, wood-panelled Restaurant is an ideal venue for both an important business lunch (customers cross the City of London for its famed Cheeseboard) and for a romantic ‘diner a deux’ – it was voted by ‘The Times’ as the most romantic restaurant in London.

Bleeding Heart French Restaurant the flagship of the group, which offers modern French food, ‘impeccable service’, an award-winning ‘encyclopaedic’ wine list and above all a uniquely welcoming ambience.

Our busy buzzy French Bistro 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 is our Gastropub, open from 7am 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 Lamburger.
