The Restaurant


Bleeding Heart’s long–established and extremely popular French Restaurant in Central London offers superb food in historical surroundings. 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’s French Restaurant is 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.

Described by Square Meal as “arguably the finest French restaurant” in the City, and by The Times as the City’s most romantic restaurant, Bleeding Heart Restaurant offers modern French food, ‘impeccable service’, an award-winning ‘encyclopaedic’ wine list and above all a uniquely welcoming ambience in a wonderfully historic setting.

Intense aromas and rich flavour combinations dominate the Bleeding Heart menu, whilst a luxurious dessert menu is the epitome of Parisian elegance.

A selection of dining rooms at Bleeding Heart restaurant range from the intimate wine cellar, to the alluring hues of the red room. Warm mahogany panels, low ceilings and vintage prints make for an intimate ambience at Bleeding Heart Farringdon. An award-winning ‘encyclopaedic’ selection from the wine cellar showcases a range of 450 bottles. Oozing continental-style elegance, Bleeding Heart London was named London’s most romantic restaurant by The Times. Farringdon Rail Station is 3 minutes’ walk away.
