Smiths of Smithfield is the Grade II listed four-floor restaurant in the heart of Smithfield Market – London’s only working meat market. The restaurant’s priority has always been to serve simple food made from the finest ingredients, served in a friendly way in a relaxed atmosphere. The impressive building was lovingly restored by the “Smiths” team with architects Wells Mackereth, having stood empty for over 40 years. There’s a definitive New York feel to the overall style with plenty of open spaces, blasted brickwork, big windows and comfy leather seating. Each of the four floors has a distinctive style – food, design and atmosphere – offering pretty much something for everyone depending on mood, budget or time.
With four floors to explore, there’s somewhere in Smith’s for everyone. The ground floor’s the informal place for catch-ups with friends, brunches and boozing. Up one is the lounge and cocktail bar with over 70 whiskies racked up. Hire out the second floor or skip to the third where things are a bit more civilised with grills and clay ovens. Top floor? Light and airy, with floor to ceiling windows, fresh British heritage is served with a side of city rooftop views, a great location to keep even the wildest minds from wandering.
