Description

Barsmith is a cutting edge concept bar in Farringdon - smack bang in the middle of London.

The concept at the heart of this new venue isn't anything too fancy or avante garde though; its unique selling point is just darned good drinks, all priced at the very reasonable £8.95. We aren't talking Woo Woos or Sex on the Beaches though either; Barsmith serves a capsule collection of fresh, creative cocktails to their customers, all made from delicious spirits fused in house and served in eccentric vessels.

We've heard there might even be a bit of dry ice involved. Head down to explore their delightfully surprising menu, as well as a fresh Italian food menu, and refreshing interiors.

A go-to bar if you're looking to root out great value, great tasting cocktails in the heart of the City.

I went with my friends to celebrate my birthday and we all enjoyed the place a lot! Cocktails are nice and cheap, you can enjoy 2for 1 and same for pizza! Pizza is good and atmospheare is great. They do music until late and it's also very very busy. (People having fun, dancing).The staff is nice and friendly and the manager Dina very helpful. I would recommend this place for a party,definitely. Visited Barsmith on 2018-01-13

I had reserved a table for a group. I was held up at work but my friends were there on time and were told the reservation didn't exist. They even checked the reservations list themselves and my name didn't appear, so they had to stay at the bar. When I arrived I asked again and suddenly the manager made a table available but told us that we would have to leave in 45mins again as the table was only for 1.5hours from the start of the reservation and we didn't even get an apology. It was very poorly managed. Would not recommend it for groups. Visited Barsmith on 2017-12-15

Had a great time celebrating my 30th at Barsmith. The manager had no issue giving my party the raised back area after the people who had supposedly booked it didn't show. 2 for 1 pizzas and cocktails were great. Music pretty loud but not deafening. Thanks Visited Barsmith on 2017-11-25

We were informed when we arrived that the bar was over booked. I had booked for 14, and we had been allocated a small area with 2 tables that seated 6 people. I expected to not have 14 seats, but expected a larger area as it was a booking for 14. I was told by 1 member of staff that they had double booked all of the tables. Another member of staff told me it was an appropriate sized table for 14. A bit confusing. We were not offered anything in the way of an apology, even verbally until my friend requested an apology and requested we should receive something for the inconvenience. We were given a bottle of prosecco between 14 people. I did ask for another bottle so everyone got more than a sip, but this was declined. I’ve worked in customer service in the past and just felt that it was me inconveniencing the bar which is something no customer should ever experience. I received no email telling me of the overbooking which would have been really helpful. Visited Barsmith on 2017-11-18

Chaos and we were the only table in there. We were a large group 15 people but the bar was empty. The waiter didn't write down our order, instead he marked up a menu. He must have returned to our table at least 6 time to check what we had ordered. We then waited a good 45 mins before we got served our first meal. With the waiter coming back an forth to ask more questions. When the food arrived there was a mix up ( wrong pizza ) and some of the group did not receive there food until 1 1/2 hours into our visit. It is a real shame that they were so disorganised as the food was delicious. Based on the disorganisation we would not visit again over a lunch break. Based on the food we would.

It was a great venue. My friends and I appreciated the two for one offer on cocktails and pizzas, and the free shots on checking in to Barsmith on facebook.

Great pizza but sadly nowhere near as good as it used to be! 1) table not ready on time despite the place being dead 2) On my 1st drink staff tried to charge me for doubles without asking 3) Service charge added to pizzas... errr you order at the bar?! I think the fact is was pretty much empty on a Friday night speaks volumes. Gone is the friendly and fun atmosphere, it's been replaced by an overall air of rip off and staff who look bored and grumpy. Won't be returning. Visited Barsmith on 2015-11-27

It was great, ample space for my party, good food and cocktails. Just two minor observations which had these been handled differently I perhaps would have rated this 5*. 1) one of the staff took one of my friends drinks even though they had a significant amount left. When my friend POLITELY mentioned this, we received nothing but attitude from the accused member of staff for the entire night. This left a sour taste 2) there was an incident in the bar where a girl drank too much and passed out. The DJ respectfully stopped the music, until the girl walked out of the bar with little assistance. The DJ did not resume playing the music until prompted by someone in my party well after the incident had cleared. This felt a bit like an overreaction from the DJ given that the girl walked herself out of the bar. Overall, great location, great vibe and great tunes. I would definitely consider coming back Visited Barsmith on 2017-08-12

Staff were incredibly helpful and welcoming. I have been here many times before and cannot fault the service. Vince, our barman made us some exquisite cocktails and the staff had managed to accommodate my last minute booking for a table for me and a friend to have some after work drinks to celebrate her engagement. We ordered a couple of dishes off their regular menu too and they were delicious. I will definitely be coming back again. Visited Barsmith on 2017-07-13

The food is generally good at Barsmith however the service is terrible, especially consodering how empty the place is. I ordered a fig, parma ham and goats cheese salad and the salad arrived without the fig. No big deal i thought but it took ages to get the servers attention then he couldnt quite grasp what i meant when i explained there was no fig, then it took him another 15 minutes to find out from the chefs that in fact they had run out of fig ( hence it wasnt on the salad) and then another 10 minutes to get me some peppers to dress my salad up a bit. It was a farce! Something so simple should have been sorted quickly bit it instead took the whole hour. Visited Barsmith on 2017-06-29

The bartender was impolite and a bit arrogant - she said she hadn't heard of the "Free Prosecco bottle" offer and also didn't include the discount on food on our final bill, so we had to ask her several times to readjust it. She was not very helpful, neither attentive. Otherwise, the offer was great, the food was amazingly delicious but the service was poor. Visited Barsmith on 2017-06-28

Wouldn't recommend. I bought two buy one get one free pizzas, at £14 (ish) each. So you'd expect the total for 2 to be £14? Wrong. He said it was £15 something, so when I asked why, he tried to explain I couldn't understand him, so instead of just repeating it clearly or getting someone else to explain, he decided to tap my card on the contactless machine, charge me anyway, and then point at the receipt that said 'service charge'. Would NOT trust these guys with my card again, if you do decide to go, insist that you touch your card and don't give it to them to do. Pizzas were mediocre, you could tell the bases (with cheese and tomato) had been made hours before and possibly frozen, then just heated and luke warm/cold toppings thrown on top. Cocktails were ok.

Wow, this place! The management and bar staff are amazing. I wanted to organise a Leaving do (from my job). Ideal setting: buy everyone a couple of drinks, have some pizza, in a nice bar, some conversation, enough space, etc. I emailed David about booking an area in Barsmith for this and he was very responsive. After that I went to look at the space and met Dina, who is incredible. Dina is such a friendly person and very concerned with making sure you have an enjoyable, relaxing time at Barsmith. The two of them make a fantastic team. With a group of about 20-30, I booked the area at the back on a Wednesday. It's a great space. Everyone remarked about how cool it was to have the fridge (that you can load with drinks). The prices, including for pizzas to share, were very reasonable. Dina dropped by several times to make sure we were happy, check that everyone is having a good time, and to ask if we wanted anything else. The space itself was perfect for the size of party. And, importantly, there is atmosphere, but you also didn't feel like you had to shout to talk. This was a fantastic experience overall. If I ever needed to organise something similar again, I will most definitely be back! My thanks to Dina and David. You two are the best! Visited Barsmith on 2017-05-24

The person who answered my request to reserve an area got back to me straight away and was extremely helpful. No charge or deposit either which is rare. The area was perfect - the front left section of the bar with a tall table to seat about 15 and space around it to comfortably accommodate 25 in total. The staff were incredibly friendly when we arrived and for the whole night. There's a really good choice of drinks - beer, wine and cocktails - and the pizzas were very tasty too. The only slight negative thing is that the bar is extremely loud. However, it was a Friday night so what do you expect. All in all I'd highly recommend the place. Visited Barsmith on 2017-02-03

Best Birthday ever, the waiting staff were brilliant and really accommodating. This is great for somewhere to get all your friends together in ones place, we had the fridge area which was exactly what we were looking for. Unfortunately it is the bouncers that let them down. The venue closes at 2am, music off and we were ushered out at 1.35am we were practically being pushed out the door and my partners coat when missing and ended up in a different area, I had all my birthday gifts I was trying to collect and was told to LEAVE THEM? Will def be calling the manager about the unnecessary abruptness from these bouncers. Overall FAB night and great VENUE! Visited Barsmith on 2017-01-28

Overall a good experience and we would recommend to others. The food was good, particularly the lamb chops and pizza. A couple of negative points: The bar closed at 11pm instead of midnight as we were advised at time of booking. Not all the beer listed on the menus was available. It would have been useful to have more than one tab card for the group. Men's toilets were in a bad state on the night and although staff were informed nothing seemed to be done about it. Perhaps more staff needed? Visited Barsmith on 2017-01-10

The service, hospitality and the staff were very very disappointing. We didn't get the table service we were promised. We were ordering at the bar instead of at the table, bringing back the dirty glasses and dishes to the bar ourselves. I was promised by David the manager that I could order food at any point of the day - that I could order in stages between 1-5pm for when my party was actually booked to then be told too late that the kitchen closed at 3pm which meant that for the rest of the party booking I couldn't get my guests any food. Had I known that I would not be allowed to order after 3pm then I would have changed the booking or communicated that to my guests. We were also asked to leave our area several times before 5pm when I actually booked the area until 5pm! This was because they double booked us and had another party waiting to take our area. Staff were very relaxed and not bothered about making our experience better or solving the problem. Visited Barsmith on 2016-12-08

Organised work drinks for the 1st time here. Staff were really good from reserving area as requested to responding to any queries promptly. When we arrived we were greeted and welcomed to our table opposite the bar. Setting up a tab was easy and ordering food too. We had a few 20" pizzas which were de-li-cious! Went down a treat with everyone there. Bar staff were attentive, very professional, knew their drinks well and service was always met with a smile. The only downside was that the space between the bar and the table opposite was quite narrow so when it did eventually get really busy (7-10pm) we kept being pushed and bumped into so felt in "the way" of traffic. The DJ came on at 8pm and played some really good tunes that got us all dancing (old school pop, hip-hop, rnb, some xmas songs here and there). All in all it was a really good night out and we'll surely be back! :) Visited Barsmith on 2016-12-02

We chose Barsmith to have our engagement party as it was tough to find a nice venue that didn't want a minimum bar spend - tougher than it sounds! So we looked at a couple and then went in to see Barsmith on a Sat. afternoon, and met the amazing and super cool Dina who made it no choice at all - we had to do it there! The whole experience with everyone we dealt with was really friendly, relaxed and easy. To be honest it felt like we were borrowing a friends loft apartment than it being a bar open to all. Thanks so much to team Barsmith for a wicked party! James and Amanda Visited Barsmith on 2016-10-29

The kitchen is attached to the bar and the chefs burnt some food which led to the alarms going off and the bar being filled with smoke!

Nice venue, really good happy hour. 2 for 1 pizza and cocktails on a Saturday night is fab. The pizza was good and the selection on the cocktail happy hour was a good variety. Only slight area of improvement was the customer service. Some staff looked as though they were working hard while others were just standing around, when we first walked in all the staff were talking behind the bar no one approached us or greeted us. We had to go to the bar to let them know we had a reservation. Not major just an example of the kind of service. Visited Barsmith on 2016-03-26

This bar had a lot of potential, but it was quite quiet for a Saturday night and the cocktails weren't quite to my taste. Perhaps I just chose the wrong flavours - the bar staff were good to replace one of the cocktails that they had recommended, which we didn't like (one with Chilli in it). One bonus is that I was able to reserve a table with little fuss.

I reserved the 'fridge area' because I thought it would be a great spot for my Birthday drinks and I was not disappointed. The drinks were already chilling in the fridge when I arrived (early) and the pre-ordered pizzas were delivered to us right on time. The service was brilliant, right from the booking and staff were friendly, attentive and good humoured throughout the evening. It was a Wednesday, so not packed and we had no trouble ordering more drinks and delicious pizzas at the bar. There were only 15 of us in the end, but the space could comfortably accommodate double that, Thoroughly recommended. Thanks Barsmith!

We reserved their 'fridge' area at the back for our engagement party. It was a v busy Friday pre Xmas and I can not thank the staff enough. First, they were courteous but firm at clearing the area. They took a lot of stick for this, and credit to the young guy who stood is ground against some cutting abuse. Second, we were a big party and their attention, drinks service, friendly attitude was exemplary. Their efforts made the eve fantastic. Thanks to all, really professional and excellent venue (also music was awesome)

I love Bar Smith, the staff are nice and the pizza is delicious. However a barmaid left my Credit Card on top of a bottle of wine I just bought when I turned around for a second to say goodbye though, which is seriously not cool. She could have just held on to it for 1 more minute. The bar was very busy and could easily have been taken. However that is a minor amongst many great evenings.
