First visit to the Bowling Bird and we will be back. Friendly and efficient service, good menu and reasonably priced.
Excellent afternoon at Bowling bird
Great food and service
I have meetings nearby and walked past a few times. Went in there with a friend and were delighted by the quality, the off grid frontage and the friendliness.
First time we had been here. A warm welcome on arrival which continued throughout the evening. The food was superb as was the wine.
All in all a great experience. Definitely eat there again.
Outstanding service and food. Highly recommended. Hidden gem
Very quiet weekday evening. Only 3 tables occupied. Attentive service. Very short menu but everything we tried was very tasty. Extensive wine list. Complimentary glasses of port because it was my birthday!
Food and service were great as owner/waiters were very acccomodative and the food was expertly prepared. The meat was fantastic as were all the starters we shared. I highly recommend trying it as you wont be disappointed.
Great food, drink and service, asl always. Such a chilled place, is naturally cool and wholeheartedly recommended
Tucked away on a side street, this restaurant is a real find. Service was fantastic as was the food, all reasonably priced. There aren't too many covers so its nice and quiet and speed of service is just right. Highly recommended.
Great place. Haute cuisine in a lovely, sophisticated (but not po faced) restaurant with friendly and efficient service. You won't be disappointed.
Overall a great little place. A few more medium priced wines needed for those of us not on expenses but otherwise great
Small menu but what is on offer is lovely , lovely staff, great wine and the place is cosy - you do not feel like you are in the City which is fabulous!
Enjoyed a night. Quite quiet and a shorter menu than expected but the food was delicious and service was attentive but not invasive. Very happy overall
Great restaurant, can't be faulted at all. Really good food, service and would highly recommend.
We had a wonderful meal here. As we are not meat eaters the 3 of use order a fish main course and a lot of apps and sides and turned the meal into a tapas feast. Food was fresh, full of flavour and well presented. Service was friendly and informative. So glad we went. When we returned the next morning in search of a lost hearing aid they could not have been more helpful.
Really lovely food. My shelled prawns were a great starter and we had a chateaubriand for three which was delicious and tender. A friendly and knowledgeable Irish owner who offered an alternative more expensive red for the same price as the sold out one we had chosen. A super local restaurant for us that we would gladly recommend.
I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant.
The food was very good. The lamb was excellent and perfectly cooked.
The service was also excellent and very personable. The athmosphere is cosy and relaxed.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant and I will return.
Great find - warm and intimate little place with a really friendly welcome from the owners. Best lamb I've had in London this year and excellent wine list full of hidden gems. Highly recommended.
Another fantastic visit here, great food & service as always can’t recommend enough.
This was our first visit to Bowling Bird. It proved to be an excellent choice for a quiet lunch with a couple of friends: reasonably priced and a good standard of food. The service was friendly and non-intrusive.
What a wonderful evening - absolutely delicious food, wine, great service and a lovely atmosphere. Really recommend.
It was the worst meal we’ve had in a long time.
The calamari was bland and flavourless.
And even worse was the lamb. It was not seasoned and was cooked very poorly.
Our server did comp the wine and mojito.
Best lamb I’ve had in ages.
Great unpretentious food in one of my favourite neighbourhoods in London. The cote de boeuf was excellent !
I ate here today with my family and it was a really special evening. We were recommended a great Italian white wine, the food we ate was delicious, in particular the amazing crab claws and fabulous steak. The atmosphere of the restaurant is really friendly, warm and relaxed, helping us all have a great evening.
Lovely littl place. Warm welcome and solicitous ongoing service. Short menu but everything we had was impeccably prepared and served. Nice little wine list also. Really enjoyed the entire experience and will certainly be back.
We had a fantastic meal here, great food in a lovely setting on a beautiful street.Food was so fresh and tasty.We had Rack of lamb and a Beef fillet for mains both perfectly cooked.Staff very friendly and attentive.Highly recommend
Very tasty food, friendly service. The scallops with pancetta are highly recommended as well as Tuscan sausage!!
Great food served with a twist. Good attentive service. My sea bream was yummy. Too many potatoes as extra. Nice choice of affordable wines.
Excellent . Again. In fact the only major change was trying a different bottle of wine, which was also great.
Had a fabulous evening at the Bowling Bird. Great food, great drinks and great service from our friendly host John.
Great food. Very professional yet friendly service. The tagliatelle was great, as were all the sides. Really good bread and butter, too. Nice place!
Had a business lunch here with a Client, service was spot on, lovely cosy feel to restaurant.Cote de Beouf was a proper piece of meat and perfectly cooked , all food fresh and full of flavour.Will return and highly recommend.Thanks Bowling Bird
Delicious food and great gentle service. It’s a small menu which tends to mean they do it well. Our experience lived up to that as we had the Cote de Boeuf to share, which was cooked to perfection! Great sides and a lovely creme brûlée to finish. Good wines by the glass, but they had an extensive wine list. Found it because it was rated highly on here and it didn’t disappoint- a great find!
A quiet spot on a Wednesday evening, with excellent but unintrusive service. Presentation was impressive and the veal steaks were perfect. We skipped dessert as a half hearted attempt at keeping the calories down.
Faultless service and food. A really enjoyable evening. The Bowling Bird is definitely on the list of places to go back. Already recommended to 'foodie' friends,
Great place. Seems tucked away but really only a few yards from Smithfield market. Seems a small menu but we all chose something different and everything we had was excellent. Great service too. Will certainly head back.
We love this place. Everything is always excellent. Will be back.
Our first time dining at Bowling Bird. Very good food and wine and excellent and friendly service. Would definitely recommend and go there again. A lovely experience. 2 courses and 2 mains plus a bottle of white and a glass of red including service was £100.
From service to food..everything was amazing!
