Hatton Garden has been in the news recently and I certainly don’t go to Hatton Gardens to buy jewellery. I am mainly there to meet advertising agents and there are many, many options to eat or have a coffee. Bleeding Heart has to be one of the leading meeting places. Slick service, tasty and well-presented food, a good wine selection and it is within a minute of the underground station. I’ve eaten there several times, and twice recently, and on both occasions I’ve not been disappointed. My colleague on the latest trip had their unique fish cakes. She loved it. My fish and chips and mushy peas was spot on as was my steak and ale pie on my previous trip. Yes, it’s not cheap but this is business London and there is a premium to pay but Bleeding Heart is classy without being pretentious.
