An­other level

If you fancy some­thing a lit­tle more in­ti­mate than the cafe and bar, take your­self off to the first floor

Smiths Of Smith­field truly of­fers folks every­thing. The re­cently ren­o­vated beau­ti­ful Grade II listed build­ing is set over four floors, each pro­vid­ing a dif­fer­ent vibe.

The en­trance and ground floor are ar­ranged as a laid back din­ing and drink­ing area. The menu in Smiths Cafe And Bar is ideal for that catch up with friends over a healthy salad or that im­promptu af­ter work glass of wine paired with a shar­ing board and beer fans are spoilt for choice with a wide range of London craft ales.

If you fancy some­thing a lit­tle more in­ti­mate, then take your­self to the first floor. The stun­ning Death+Vic­tory cock­tail bar there serves up tasty drinks along­side mea­sures of his­tor­i­cal fact con­cern­ing the Smith­field area it­self – I will def­i­nitely be re­turn­ing to work my way through the in­spir­ing cock­tails.

It would not be right if SOS didn’t of­fer a grill, given its lo­ca­tion, ad­ja­cent to the cap­i­tal’s main meat mar­ket. Found on the sec­ond floor it show­cases a wide se­lec­tion of cuts for car­ni­vores.

For those who pre­fer the finer things in life and are look­ing for a so­phis­ti­cated and el­e­gant evening, the nat­u­ral choice is the third floor where the venue’s restau­rant and ter­race are to be found.

Ev­ery­body loves an out­door space and this one does not dis­ap­point, of­fer­ing views of St Pauls and The Shard. The sun came out to say hello and it was de­light­ful to sip on a glass of Per­rier-Jouet and view some iconic land­marks from a dif­fer­ent an­gle. Go again? I will be see­ing you soon at Smiths.
