Boisdale of Bishopsgate
One of two Boisdale restaurants in London, the Boisdale of Bishopsgate is located in the thriving heart of the City of London, just a few steps from Liverpool Street Station and Broadgate. Impressively decadent, opulent and executive throughout, this fine dining experience is memorable for its grace, the quality of its cuisine, the professionalism of its service and the competitiveness of its prices.
Boisdale describes itself as the 'Embassy of Highland Hospitality south of the Border' and is, therefore, a fine choice for diners seeking a true slice of Scotland in the heart of London. The name comes from a remote port in the Outer Hebrides, and is the brainchild of Ranald Macdonald - a few letters but a whole world away from a similarly-named restaurant chain with a more, shall we say, populist leaning. Regardless, every meal enjoyed at Boisdale is a happy one, with an emphasis on feast, rather than fast, food.
Every night at the Boisdale of Bishopsgate, live jazz bands serve up the atmosphere, with private members invited to join the ever-popular Jazz & Cigar Club. The makeup of the restaurant consists of its superb Oyster & Champagne Bar, the main restaurant in the lower floor, the private McGonagall Room and the chic Piano Bar - with every option providing a specialist setting that is perfect for the needs of all types of diners; whether attending for a banquet, a luncheon, a business gathering, a large social occasion, pre-theatre drinks or simply a romantic meal for two.
Delicious, seasonal, fresh, well-prepared and a true taste of traditional Scotland, the cuisine at Boisdale of Bishopsgate is fabulous in every way. Whether dining in the restaurant or in the McGonagall Room, every dish, every course, every side and every drink is highly impressive. Dishes of note include the mini roast Macsween haggis, the wild game, the Orkney herring, the cold-smoked salmon, the Loch Ryan oysters and the 28-day aged Aberdeenshire beef fillet served with black truffle gravy.
