I'm so glad we booked this venue!! The atmosphere was lively and fun, the portions of food were generous but also delicious and special, and the staff were amazing. The staff were the ones who really made the night, as they pulled out all the stops to ensure we had a great evening. Thank you very much :)

Perfection. Nadia could not have been lovelier or more helpful! From correspondence to accommodating our requests to looking after us on the night, she was a real pleasure to interact with. The food and service were both fantastic! As I'm a veggie, I had the risotto. Normally I don't eat risotto as I'm not a fan of rice - but this was some sort of euphoric palette experience that stunned me! Everyone I spoke with really enjoyed the meal and the service was prompt, organised, friendly and non-intrusive. We finished the day by having a party downstairs - the staff in the basement were also great! The cheese boards that appeared were sublime and I was only gutted to discover the next day that no-one in our party had taken away the unfinished cheese! We had such a fantastic experience here that I would unreservedly recommend this restaurant/venue to anyone thinking about having a meal or an event!

We hired the Birdcage bar in the basement. The venue looked great, it was a perfect size for our numbers (45), the cocktails were lovely and the staff were really helpful. Special thanks to Nadia who helped organise our event.

The venue was perfect size for the 30-35 guests. The venue looks great and is kitted with a great sound system, which they had no objections to me playing my own music at a loud volume. The minimum spend is very reasonable for London. I would book again without hesitation. Thanks to the Bird of Smithfield for facilitating an awesome night.
