What they say:

Follow the neon ‘S’ sign away from Bluu and downstairs towards this discerning plot of metal embossed walls, beaten leather seats and soothing candlelit vibes. Head bartender at The Smithfield Social is Tony Lovatt, who has conjured up a small but beautifully formed cocktail list, where smoky flavours promise an innovative new drinking experience.

What we say:

Starting at £8.25 a pop, cocktails don’t come cheap but value for money seems safely assured. Smoked rosemary, Applewood smoke and grilled-smoked bacon all play their part in combining with premium spirits to delicious effect, and the signature Smithfield sharing drinks seem ideal for a discerning date night. This is a great shout for after work drinks and with hire packages available, it’s all set to host many an intimate private bash.
