Serving food from breakfast to dinner, The Elgin will become your favourite local and your very own home-from-home. With an emphasis on the word 'local', all food is locally produced and all our draught beers are London based and change on a seasonal basis. A regularly updated menu with  daily specials, and an praised sunday roast, this bar & kitchen is here to cure all your hunger needs.

We also boast a great selection of over 40 beers from across the globe and a wine selection carefully designed for the food menu. A relaxed and friendly environment, it's a perfect place to sit down and eat, pick up a coffee on the way to work or even just to go for a few drinks. You can even go for a family meal during the day as children are welcome up until the early evening. Or if you have a special occasion coming up, why not organise your own private party and rent out either the bottom or top floor or both? It's also an ideal venue for your hangover needs, serving freshly made food all day that will surely help you on the road to recovery. 

So whether you're hungry, hungover or want to organise your own private party, this bar is open to all.

Great. Reserved a table in advance so we had a good portion of the back area. The leather sofa is in really bad shape. Hard to sit on as on one side only its like sitting on the frame the cushion is so worn. Apart from that service was great, ambiance great, not full of under 21's. visited The Elgin on 15 Oct 2016

Cara and her team took excellent care of us, despite some of our guests being a total mess by the end of the night! Great space, huge compliments from all attendees on the food, and a great range of drinks available. They really went above and beyond for us and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks again.

It was a great evening. The food was great, the waiters/bartenders super friendly and they had reserved for us an area at the back which worked perfectly well for our 30+ group! Thanks again!

The staff here were incredibly accommodating at very short notice for a party of 15 of us. Food and drink was great and they also helped put together a spread of nibbles. Will definitely be back!

I discovered the Elgin for a friend's 40th birthday on 7th May and would like to highlight how great our barman was. I'm not too sure of his name (I did tell him he looked like James McAvoy, hopefully this will help identifying him :)) but what he was absolutely outstanding: the friendliest barman I ever came across, always a smile on his face, very patient, very accommodating - and with a bunch of drunk people, it's quite admirable! Had a great night, and will come back!

I hired the Elgin for my 40th birthday party and was delighted with the venue and the service received. The planning was perfectly managed by Vicki and Denise and on the night, the bar staff couldn't have been more helpful (special thanks to our personal bar man for his energy and enthusiasm on the night - I think it was Adam but my memory is a little blurry!). I can't recommend the Elgin highly enough if you are looking to plan a party in a stylish venue with a fun / lively atmosphere. Thanks to all the Elgin team for making it such a special night!
