Located on the ground floor of the Montcalm Royal London House in Finsbury Square, Burdock is the ideal place to meet, drink and dine thanks to their seasonal roster of plates and plush, contemporary interiors.

Nestle down on modern furniture and take in the industrial-esque interiors as Burdock aims to create a comfortable drinking and dining space with a sophisticated and trendy twist.

From grab-and-go breakfasts and fresh smoothies in the morning, casual lunches courtesy of sharing dishes, all day spaces for creative work and meetings, to cocktails and copper tank beers for post-work drinks, Burdock covers a range of tastes and flavours. Our recommendations? The monkfish kiev, pork belly and lobster and the charred bavette. 

What's more, book one of our three shuffleboards and let the good times roll!

Lovely place, great service but food quantity small. Food was delicious though but for the size the price wasn't adequate. Visited Burdock on 2018-01-03

we were looked after really well throughout the whole evening - friendly staff and the game of shuffle board was a deal breaker Visited Burdock on 2017-12-15

Really great lunch, service was great and the food considering they were catering for lots of lunches was amazing. Great value for money. What was wrong was being charged a service charge for buying drinks at the bar. There is no service being provided for this. That's their job. Visited Burdock on 2017-12-14

Staff were lovely! Very friendly and accommodating. We had an early booking and arrived earlier than the initially booked time and they let us use the shuffleboard tables from the time we arrived! Everyone really enjoyed themselves and we are definitely already planning our next visit. Thanks to the team at Burdock for being delightful Visited Burdock on 2017-11-25

I booked two of the shuffle boards here back in Jan for 2hrs and we were half an hour late and accepted that we only had 1.5hrs left to use. However the staff were so friendly and let us have the extra 30mins in the end. This was a great gesture. We were allowed to drink whilst we played and it was a fun night. The price was really reasonable too. I came back with more friends a month later. Love shuffle board and love this venue!

After visiting The Botanist Sloane Square a while back I really wanted to visit a couple of other places under the ETM Group - so off to Burdock I whizzed. They don't take reservations for smaller groups so Friday night last week I skipped out of work and made my way down to Burdock. First impressions - WOW! The restaurant is split across both sides of The Montcalm with dining tables on one side and a stunning bar on the other. It wouldn't be fair to write a review without the whole experience so drinks first it was. The Bar - The bar features huge copper tanks that house their delicious beers, however today was not the day for beer - it was all about the cocktails. The cocktail list is short and sweet with some great additions. My partner had the Cucumber Crusta, however the Bramble and Soda really took things to a new level! A bold and delicious infusion of blackberry, with the perfect ratio of gin to vermouth - DELICIOUS! The restaurant - After a cocktail (or three), we strolled (although some may say staggered somewhat) on through to the bar and took a seat in the window. The restaurant was filled with the gentle hum of guests enjoying their dinners. We were served by a lovely young man (wish we'd taken his name - always guilty of overlooking this part - must do better!) and he guided us through the menu and wine list and made us feel comfortable. Burdock seems to be all about small plates and sharing, so who were we to argue. I am surprised the table didn't buckle under the weight of all the delicious dishes that arrived at our table, each seeming to grow better and better with each mouthful. If I HAD to pick a favourite (which I always struggle to do when I enjoy good food), I'd probably say my top three are: Monkfish Kiev - Moist and tender, perfectly cooked fish Venison Meatballs - BURSTING with flavour! I do love game and these really will take some beating... Pork Belly & Lobster - Has a finer pairing ever existed?? For the life of me I cannot remember the name of the wine, yet the memory of its subtle fruity dry notes still seems to linger on my lips. Apres dinner we both slunk back to the bar and an hour later we found ourselves at the bottom of three espresso martinis - time really does fly when you're having fun. A quick hop, skip and an Uber made an evening that is well worth revisiting. After dining at both The Botanist Sloane Square and Burdock, I think it would be incredibly rude to not venture further into the other restaurants/bars that are part of the group. I hear Aviary has some stunning views....
