The perfect Venue for a business lunch or dinner, the warm, wood-panelled Restaurant is also an ideal setting for a romantic "diner a deux": indeed it was voted by "The Times" as the City's most romantic restaurant.The busy buzzy Bistro with its striking 19th Century French wine posters is the perfect place for an informal business lunch with a colleague or a jolly supper with a group of chums. With its professional, friendly service and warm ambience, the Bistro offers both traditional and modern French fare ranging from classic Omelettes, Coq au Vin and Steak Frites to Breast of Duck and Shank of Lamb, plus a great-value list of 450 wines by the bottle and a dozen by the glass. Downstairs the Tavern Dining Room with its jolly farmyard illustrations features an open Rotisserie and Grill and provides a warm and comforting setting in which to enjoy free-range organic British meat, game and poultry along with an excellent – value wine list. The Tavern is also open for breakfast, with freshly-squeezed orange juice, home-baked croissants and "The Full English" with our tasty Suffolk Bacon. With its History of Celebration and Celebration of History, the 600 year-old Crypt in Ely Place has been hosting celebrity parties ever since King Henry V111 held his three day wedding feast there in 1531. Adjoining Bleeding Heart Yard, the magical medieval Crypt, which can seat up to 120 for dinner, offers the same superb food, wine and service as the legendary Bleeding Heart restaurant. The Crypt is the ideal venue to hold your party, from 50 up to 120 guests for a superb and memorable event. "The Best Venue in Britain for Private Dining" has just got even better. We have a number of beautiful Private Dining Rooms seating from 20 to 120. With 30 years of experience we know how to make your special day very special indeed, whether you having a wonderful feast for 120 or a more intimate wedding supper for 12, either in one of Bleeding Heart’s atmospheric Private Dining Rooms or in the magical medieval Crypt in Ely Place, next door to Bleeding Heart.

Went for business lunch. Reservations was slick and phoned day before to confirm booking. My fellow diner went for the set price lunch and ordered off the a la carte menu. He said it was one the best lunches he had had for a long time. I had scallops for starter - marvellous, baked halibut for main - delicious and... More

It's French but international; its wines come from its own New Zealand vineyards; it's in a dark and obscure corner of old London, but radiates warmth and hospitality. The service is as good as the food - extremely good - and this being London, you certainly pay for it. Been twice this year, once to entertain some foreign clients, once... More

The Bleeding Heart "complex" includes a tavern, a restaurant and one other space and is located in a picturesque courtyard in Clerkenwell (in itself an up-and-coming gentrified area in London). Everything about this restaurant is excellent. The staff is all French, the food is deliscious - we ate both vegetarian and fish dishes, as well as appetizers and deserts -... More

We treated ourselves to a meal at The Bleeding Heart and were not disappointed. 7 courses including coffee and each one seemed more delicious than the last. The service was incredible and the food was mouth-wateringly delicious. Ill be saving up and returning soon!

An evening with old school friends (we were on an excellent deal of £30 for a three course meal with a glass of champagne). Delicious food and very pleasant and interesting ambience. The staff were friendly and efficient and nothing was too much trouble for them. We all enjoyed it enormously.

The Bleeding Heart is deservedly considered the place to go by many discerning diners - we were truly impressed by all aspects of the place. The setting is good, access easy. It's often billed as London's most romantic restaurant and there was evidence of several couples enjoying an evening together. The atmosphere is excellent, service top notch with no hassle... More

Had lunch recently at the Bleeding Heart restaurant - and very splendid it was. An elegant, traditional dining experience, with superb food. Classic French cuisine, beautifully cooked and a well-chosen, sensibly priced wine list. Lovely ambience (in the upstairs dining room). Excellent attentive service. A little gem.
