Bird of Smithfield is housed in an old Georgian town house and operates over an impressive 5 floors. 

The Birdcage is truly special for birthday, engagement, office and all kinds of parties for up to 60 people. Start with some scrumptious canapés and unique cocktails, or why not partake in your very own cocktail masterclass? The Chief Mixologist Tom will be on hand to teach you and talk you through some classic recipes or even help you invent your own cocktail!

The Birdcage is equipped with its own stage too… why not enjoy a rocking band or a wonderful jazz singer? There are many musicians on the books that will make your party special. With a late licence is available to top things off, you are guaranteed a great evening for you and your friends.

The 2nd floor private room will wow your guests. A beautiful glass table with tweed chairs and chic Porta Romana lamps decorate the room. This handsome room can take up to 40 people (standing or seated). Fancy some entertainment? They can also arrange wine and food tastings or even your own food quiz!

If you are just looking to have a few drinks with your colleagues or friends, then why not book an area in the main bar for up to 30 people. The gorgeous 1st floor restaurant is perfect for entertaining clients over lunch or dinner and can seat up to 52 people.

Love a roof terrace? You're in luck!  This summer the roof has been transformed into a beautiful SPRITZ GARDEN! Just a little reminder though, the roof terrace is available to all on a first come, first served basis.

Bird of Smithfield Farringdon - London Restaurant Review

Living in north London, I’m a bit of a stranger when it comes to rhyming off Farringdon’s hotspots. Having said that, I am by no means a stranger to the Bird of Smithfield. With two visits to this old Georgian townhouse tucked under my...

Funky place, visited with friends. Staff were very friendly and made plenty of suggestions. Food really tasty. Cocktails very Moorish. Only thing for a Friday night it was quiet. Could have done with more people. Also its a bit off the path, so a track, but would def go back.

Went to Bird of Smithfield for a Hen night and it was perfect; the room was large but cosy, elegantly decorated, staff were attentive without being excessive. Food was delicious and catered for allergies and other food sensitivities. The pre-order process online was simple and the team was always available for guidance. The Bride to Be, had a brilliant evening, which is the most important indorsement! Visited Bird of Smithfield on 2017-06-24

The Birdcage at Bird of Smithfield really is THE place to have a party. Perhaps the only place in London to hold a party. With its convenient location, beautiful party room (and not too big, so cosy) helpful staff and a reasonable minimum spend and a choice of late licenses its all perfect. Im already thinking of an excuse to hold another amazing party there. Thanks guys - you made a special night even more special.

Bird of Smithfield is my favourite bar/ restaurant in the area. If you want to have a great lunch, dinner or just a drink after work this is the place to go. Great selection of drinks, good food and amazing staff is a must and I was really lucky to find it all under the one roof. Love it...

I've been to Bird of Smithfield twice now, once to their basement bar (to sample their new cocktail selection) second, to get a look at their new Aperol rooftop terrace. Absolutely love this place, it's a real Farringdon hidden gem.

so this was the note that I sent to the events manager following a party that I had at BoS; clearly I loved it: My apologies that it’s taken a few weeks to get this to you, but I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and everyone else at Bird of Smithfield involved with my 40th birthday party! Everyone had a fantastic time, and thoroughly enjoyed both the canapés (especially the lemon pies!) and the drinks (thank goodness you had extra bottles of Prosecco on hand). A few friends even wound up going downstairs for dinner, and they said it was just as great as everything in the function room. Physically, the room layout was great (everyone LOVED the furniture) and almost everyone went up to the roof terrace at some point. Last but not least, the staff were absolutely brilliant – very helpful and always there but not intrusive. Again, I can’t thank you guys enough, it was an amazing night. I’ll see you again for dinner soon, J

I popped in because the property had been empty for a while, I noticed there was work going on over the Winter. It's not recognizable after having a pint a couple of times when it was a pub. There are very few restaurants I've been in that have a combination of good food, original contemporary art, roof terrace and a dance floor. When I next have a date this will be the venue.
