Riding House Bloomsbury opened its doors in May 2022, located within the Brunswick Centre, a hidden monument of modernist architecture in the heart of Bloomsbury.
Riding House Bloomsbury is a sister restaurant of Riding House Fitzrovia and Rail House Victoria. As with our other restaurants, we have embraced a stark building, this one generally loved by architects and disliked in equal measure by the public. Riding House Bloomsbury’s interiors embrace its brutalist shell, with concrete booths seemingly rising out of the floor, adorned with soft mohair cusions. Further contrast lies in reclaimed wood panelling, warm vintage and bespoke pieces of furniture.
The expansive international menu at Riding House Bloomsbury offers a comprehensive range of dishes for all occasions. Breakfast and brunch options include malted deep-dish pancakes, smashed avocado on sourdough toast and eggs Benedict in many iterations. Visit at lunch or dinnertime for grilled prime steaks and whole fish, signature burgers, a host of salads and accompanying skewers. Vegetarians and vegans are well catered for, along with those with allergies and intolerances – the kitchen is nut-free for instance. There is also an extensive cocktail and wine list, making it a great spot for after-work drinks or a night out with friends.
The restaurant features an open kitchen, exposed brick walls, and large windows that let in plenty of natural light. There is also a beautiful bar area, perfect for pre-dinner drinks or a night out with friends.
Like the Fitzrovia location, Riding House Bloomsbury is a popular spot for brunch, dinner, and drinks. It has a lively and welcoming atmosphere, making it a great place to socialise and enjoy contemporary international cuisine in a stylish setting.
Bloomsbury is a historic neighbourhood of Central London, known for its rich cultural and intellectual heritage. The area is named after a 17th-century landowner, the Duke of Bedford, who developed the land in the late 17th and early 18th centuries.
Bloomsbury is home to several world-renowned institutions, including the British Museum, the University of London, and the British Library. It was also a hub for the literary and artistic community during the early 20th century, with many famous writers, artists, and thinkers such as Virginia Woolf, T.S. Eliot, and E.M. Forster living and working in the area.
Today, Bloomsbury is a bustling neighbourhood with a mix of homes, shops, restaurants, and cafés. It has a vibrant cultural scene and is popular among tourists and locals alike for its museums, galleries and beautiful garden squares.
