Tucked away beneath the historic cobble-stones of Bleeding Heart Yard in Holborn, The Bleeding Heart Restaurant has been voted both best City Restaurant for Business as well as best City Restaurant for Romance. Named for the gory murder of Lady Elizabeth Hatton by her jealous lover in 1626, the old warehouse was converted by its owners Robert and Robyn Wilson into a bar, bistro and restaurant 26 years ago. Today its one of the busiest buzziest Restaurants in the City with a Modern French menu, terrific service and an encyclopaediac wine list.
