Chiswell Street Dining Rooms

Chiswell Street Dining Rooms | Barbican Brasserie

Since establishing the ETM Group over a decade ago, brothers Ed and Tom Martin have opened a stream of award-winning pubs and bars – from The Gun to The White Swan, The Hat and Tun, The Well and The Prince Arthur (who, unlike his cheeky brother Albert, only got his ear pierced).

Chiswell Street Dining Rooms detours from a formula that brought them so much success over the previous decade: it’s neither a pub, nor does its name begin with “The”.

Located a stone’s throw from the Barbican Centre, on what was once considered to be “London’s most dug-up street”, it’s a modern British restaurant and cocktail bar that includes seven private dining rooms for meetings and events. Turn up at any time, within reason, and it’ll have you covered: from 7am breakfast meetings through to evening cocktails and late night dinners. Breakfast dishes ranging from blueberry pancakes and crepes to seasonal fruits and the Full English are complimented by a fine Bloody Mary.

The lunch and dinner menus feature poached Benbeculan langoustines, the Dexter burger, a Denham Estate Barnsley Chop and everyone’s favourite Friday lunch: fish and chips.

Offering Sunday roasts, champagne afternoon teas, beer served in tankards and a cocktail menu that includes the Chiswell ‘56’ (homemade sloe berry gin, blueberries and champagne lovingly mixed at a large chestnut, leather-fronted bar), it’s the place to go.

Particularly if you’re on Chiswell Street.


NOTE: Chiswell Street Dining Rooms is open Tuesday – Sunday. You can book a table HERE.
