About Mill Lane Bistro

Imagine taking the quality one would expect of Michelin-starred cuisine, the charm of the Parisian bistro, and bringing it to already popular local London premises at affordable prices. Mill Lane Bistro’s proprietor Cyril imagined just that, and has made the dream a reality along West Hampstead’s Mill Lane, easily accessible from West Hampstead station. With plenty of experience backing the ambition (Cyril has previously worked at gastronomic powerhouses such as the Hotel de Crillon, La Tour d’Argent, Tom Aikens and Scott’s of Mayfair), Mill Lane Bistro exceeds expectations.

More about Mill Lane Bistro, London

Come the weekend, Mill Lane Bistro is quietly humming with guests enjoying a classic Gallic petit dejeuner. For many West Hampstead locals, breakfast at this Mill Lane eatery is a regular affair, but of course it’s merely a humble introduction to a quietly triumphant menu that bears the stamp of its curator Cyril’s French heritage and passion for French-style cuisine, not to mention his experience working in Michelin-starred restaurants in Paris and in London. The a la carte menu is judicious and surprisingly affordable; changing with the seasons, it’s not only as fresh as can be, but also inspires loyalty amongst those who’ve happened upon this gem just a short stroll from West Hampstead tube station.

Mill Lane Bistro’s premises are themselves part of this eatery’s allure. Set along a terraced row from which the bistro takes its name, West Hampstead’s Mill Lane, the writing on the wall quite literally indicates that you’ve stumbled upon a Parisian bar au vin in northwest London. Indeed, come winter months, there’s nothing better than taking a fireside seat in the very cosy Mill Lane Bistro and enjoying a drop from the well-stocked wine cellar (the French dominate, naturally) accompanied by the generous homemade charcuterie board or the French cheese board, and perhaps a couple of other friends, too, to allow for conversation.
