Once a magnificent art deco garage complex with links to speed racer Sir Malcolm Campbell (hence the name), this is now a multipurpose eating and drinking venue, part of the D&D London stable. At street level is a lively café (and front courtyard) and food store. The restaurant is on the first floor; bag a table by the window for a diverting view of the King’s Road.
There's a Mediterranean slant to the menus, with dishes ranging from steak tartare and queen scallops with chorizo and apple to baked black cod with butter beans and pancetta, daube of beef with young carrots and celery, grilled calf's liver with sweet peppers, olives and sage, and rump of Norfolk lamb with merguez sausage and bulgar.
Weekend brunches, afternoon tea and seasonal menus also feature.

I took a friend to Bluebird for their birthday and had a really lovely time. We started out with lunch in their beautiful art deco restaurant, really friendly staff and equally good food. We had a couple cocktails from the limited edition Jo Malone menu - a tad pricey at £16 each but as it was a special occasion and the drinks were beautifully presented we happily obliged. After lunch we had drinks in the outside courtyard which was the perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon.
Went for a friends going away lunch as she was moving back to Australia. I thought the venue was great, really well decorated and as it was close to Christmas it felt very festive. We went for the 2 course brunch which was pretty good value for £22 in Chelsea. I had brought a home baked cake and they served it out to us at no extra cost for our third course which was nice! They also serve one of the best bloody mary's in London for only a fiver.
The only negative I would say is the service isn't super attentive. We constantly felt like we had to shout out when we wanted to order further drinks.
Overall I would still visit again to try more of the delicious food. The duck salad is super tasty for a starter!
Me and a few friends come to Bluebird for some late afternoon cocktails for a friends birthday after lunch. The cocktails were really good! The atmosphere was great and all together Bluebird is a lovely venue!
Excellent venue and lovely staff. We go for all our occasions and the front of house staff always help to make them special.
I heard about this restaurant in Australia and so I went there with a friend when I traveled to London. Just amazing food! ❤️'ed the service and their PR was just unforgettable! The chef walk around talking to everyone, he was so interested in what people thought. One of my favourite restaurant to date! Excellent
Great local restaurant. Atmosphere and service make you feel a million pound without the bill to match. Chef is creative with his food but not over the top
What a delight to the tastebuds! A wonderfully insightful menu that leaves you wanting to return again and again. Matthew Robinson is a genius in the kitchen. I think this is my favourite restaurant in the whole of Europe!
Great food, wine, unique cocktails. Fantastic atmosphere, stylish surroundings and very friendly staff!! Perfect for any occasion!!!
I went to the street cafe and had a cappuccino. It was the most disgusting cappuccino ever, just milk and water. They charged me 3.85 pounds for a small cup. The stuff were very unpleasant . I strongly not recommend this cafe. There is nothing good about it. My rating is 0 .
Went to the restaurant years ago when it first opened and that was a dreadful experience. Thought the cafe might be better so decided to breakfast there this morning. Nothing has changed... The service was poor. The waiter made a mistake with our order, and when I pointed out that a key ingredient was missing from one of the dishes, I was told it was on my plate so I was the one who was wrong! It took three goes to explain that I ordered smoked salmon with scrambled eggs AND eggs royale... The food also arrived before the drinks. It was a pity our experience was such as the food when it arrived was OK. One point in their favour is that they seem to be prompt in organising the bill!
Lovely restaurant and food just found it somewhat rude when we entered and spoke to the young lady on reception ,she said that there was a 'two hour window' so would have to leave then and this was even though the restaurant was practically empty when we arrived and not a lot busier when we left!!! Think she could have been more polite!!!
