Rivington Bar & Grill

About Rivington Bar & Grill

Rivington Grill is offering a 25% discount on food as a parting gesture, before they close temporarily for refurbishment from 18 August, opening again for dinner on 1 September

A very smart and up-to-the-minute warehouse space in BoHo Shoreditch, the Rivington Grill Bar has an awkward name but a graceful welcome. The very groovy leather-sofa’ed bar offers terrific cocktails and a wonderful place to chill and meet friends and the front-of-house deli sells delicious treats to take home with you. But it’s the main restaurant we want to focus on here -- the whitewashed walls are a perfect backdrop for artworks dotting the walls by local artists, including Tracy Emin. The menu, on the other hand, is any but modern. In fact, the Rivington could be nicknamed the Homesick Cafe. Honest British stalwart cooking is what you’ll find, from devilled kidneys on toast to nursery foods like fish fingers with mushy peas or steamed smoked haddock with poached egg. The wine list suits many wallets and the ambience is sophisticated and relaxed.
