This longstanding Farringdon bistro is one of four venues from the Bleeding Heart group - the tavern, crypt and restaurant proper are all nearby. Each takes its name from the yard in which it is located - a part of town apparently with a murderous past.
It's much more civilised here, though. The look is that of a classic French bistro, with wine posters from the nineteenth-century, decorative empty wine bottles and plenty of wood. The food menu follows suit, it's pretty much a run through of classic French bistro dishes.
Expect, then, a selection ranging from escargots, moules marinières and terrine de campagne to coq au vin, salade Niçoise, chicken liver parfait and confit duck leg with savoy cabbage, lardons and pancetta. Desserts include crème brulée, profiteroles and a petit pot au chocolat.
