We held our Christmas Party at St Barts last Friday (3/12/2021) and just had the most incredible party! This was all thanks to the amazing team at the venue from the bar and service staff who were so friendly and helpful to the chef for the delicious food and last but not least our event manager Jola! Jola was so accommodating, always quick to reply and did such great work to ensure everything ran smoothly. Not only is she fab at her job, she is a genuinely lovely person who did everything with all with a big smile on her face. The venue looked beautiful with fairy lights, a big tree and stunning table dressings. We brought in our own drag entertainers and partied until 1am. What a night - thanks again Balfour St Barts!


Absolutely incredible venue. We attended a wedding here at the weekend, and the service, food, atmosphere, environment was superb. The industrial vibe with the fairy lights, large windows and seating arrangements made the venue perfect. There was Nothing to fault. The food was top class and all 90plus guests ate steak at the same time. It was perfectly cooked, and tasted divine. The service at the bar was brilliant, any drink could be made and the standard of cocktails and prosecco was excellent. The bride and groom made a great choice picking The Balfour for their special day because the team on 22/10 did an amazing job to make it special for everyone!! Definitely returning to try out more of the menu

Visited for their relatively new open mic night. The bar is beautiful and has a pleasant atmosphere. The bar staff are very knowledgeable and attentive. There is an upstairs balcony area overlooking the platform and bar below. Also upstairs they have a private bar area which can be booked and would make a great party or company event. The food is amazing and surprising for a bar. The area is quite quiet and sits opposite the Elizabeth line station so it is easy to get to. Overall a great experience and made for one of the best nights out I've had in London Will be returning!


A little oasis on what was a very hot day in the city …. David really looked after me with lovely chilled Balfour Rose & wisely lots of water! Great to be looked after by a fellow Scot whilst in this great city for a few days - a real find - great wine & yummy pizza - thoroughly recommend - thank you all x


Our company had the opportunity to host a corporate event at Balfour St Barts. The event could not have gone any better. The staff were very attentive, and the food was delicious. Thank you to Max and the management team for an enjoyable event. We look forward to joining you again sometime soon.


Excellent place for a great quick meal and great service ! Owner was very cordial and service oriented. Wine selection was outstanding. Location was great for where we were located next to Smithfield market !


Max is fabulous. Great place for food and wine. Atmosphere is very friendly and welcoming. We have frequented Balfour St Barts on our short trip to London. Must try Leslie Reserve Rosa, it's wonderful. ❤


Had flat iron steak and it was perfect. The flavour of flame grill was beautiful. Staff were lovely and friendly and I shall be coming back!!


This is a fantastic place to relax and enjoy good food and wine.
