'Smiths' of Smithfield Farringdon
There are four different levels to this Smithfields spot, encompassing a ground floor cafe and bar, a first-floor bar dedicated to craft beer, a second-floor dining room and a third – and top – floor given over to food of a more fine-dining bent. There are private rooms to hire, too. Largely, the menus here focus on British produce and dishes. Expect bacon sandwiches, full English breakfasts and mushrooms on toast on the ground floor, steaks, burgers and seared scallops with black pudding, bacon and cauliflower purée in the second-floor dining room, and veal sirloin, cod with langoustine and roast monkfish with caramelised cauliflower, leeks, cockles and ham on the top floor. More than 60 craft beers feature in first-floor bar. Brewers include Five Points, Bru, The Kernel, Hiver and Hammerton. Cocktails, wines and an interesting selection of spirits also feature.
