The Bistro

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 ranging from Coq au Vin and Steak Frites to Lapin à la moutarde and Navarin of Organic Lamb, plus a great-value list of 450 wines by the bottle and more than a dozen by the glass. From Spring to Autumn the Bistro has a secluded court yard terrace sitting more than 30.

The Bleeding Heart French Bistro is one of a gathering of gems located in the heart of London, offering a classic and modern French cuisine accompanied by a fine selection of wines.

All the traditional French dishes can be found on the Bleeding Heart Bistro menu from escargots to steak haché. Prized by Bleeding Heart is the award-winning wine list boasting 450 different bottles. The love of which is shown by the abundance of 19th-century French wine posters and decorative empty wine bottles.

Bleeding Heart Bistro is equipped with a large outdoor terrace covered with a red awning and adorned with a vineyard sculpture to maximise the French ambience. Farringdon Tube Station is a 2-minute walk away.

“A tucked-away location in a Holborn yard adds to the cosy and rustic charm of this brasserie. A wide array of good, honest French dishes is backed up
by a fantastic wine list.”Harden’s London Restaurant Guide
