BFI Bar and Kitchen


BFI Bar and Kitchen is a modern British restaurant located within the BFI in the heart of Southbank. The bar, the centrepiece of the site, is renowned for its well put together cocktails, wide variety of beer and full bodied wines. Hot property in the establishment is the casual and relaxing lounge area, styled with vintage mismatched furniture that teams up with the extensive opening hours to produce a truly relaxed environment that many make good use of frequently, enjoying a glass or two.

The restaurant focuses on seasonal contemporary British themed cuisine and sources local produce as much as possible. With a frequently changing lunch menu on offer alongside a host of daily specials, there will always be something different to try each time you visit.

A friendly and warm clientele makes it a very attractive place to drink and dine and whether you are among the after work drinkers that visit, or you are out with mates for some drinks and a meal, the mix of old and new furnishing and decor styles in the spacious BFI Bar and Kitchen makes for a nice place to do it, especially with the Drawing Room complete with an old Library style decor, large comfy armchairs, globe and old book decorative items and fixtures and fittings to give you that old drawing room feel.

There is the restaurant, lounge room and drawing room to choose from at this massive venue, but whatever area you choose to chill at, be sure it will relaxed, enjoyable and something you will find yourself coming back for.
