The Bleeding Heart Restaurant

Who would have thought that one of the most romantic restaurants in London is called The Bleeding Heart. For your information there was no blood or hearts served here, just really exceptional food.

For starters we had the Winter vegetable soup and steak tartar with soft-poached quail egg and Parmesan, which was just sublime. The tartar just melted in your mouth, it was seasoned so well and the flavours just poured through.

My main was the Assiette of suckling pig and crackling with apricot and sage faggots, pommes fondants and Bramley apple sauce. It was to die for! The crackling was crunchy (as expected) and the pork was a match made in heaven with the apple sauce and potato. I did my best to soak up the gravy and sauce with every piece of pork I devoured. Incredible food, but expect to pay a price. I would make this restaurant a place to visit for special occasions.

I read some old reviews about how terrible the service was, but tonight the staff were faultless. They were attentive and really helpful in explaining the menu. The only negative of the restaurant was the toilets, there was only one female cubicle in our area, which was small and cramped. Other than that, I take my hat off to the Bleeding Heart Restaurant. It has been a delight to dine here and be treated with a first class service.
