Contrary to what some may tell you, American cuisine is extremely diverse and goes way, way past just a burger and fries. The Fat Bear London is a flying example of this. It’s a small restaurant in the very centre of London that doesn’t skimp on flavour and offers genuine American food. The Fat Bear can be found on Carter Lane in St. Paul’s – just above The Rising Sun pub – and given this fantastic location, as well as the food, you’d better believe the place is wildly popular. Oh, and there’s also a stellar drinks menu so you really can’t go wrong there now, can you. Ideal for a get together with old school friends, coworkers this spot ticks all the boxes and the food offering and drinks menu will keep just about everyone happy! Get a table reserved and head there no matter your occasion.
Quite often the best restaurants are the ones that don’t scream from the rooftops. The Fat Bear London, we’re pleased to report, doesn’t scream from the rooftops. Instead, the small but fiercely dedicated team behind the wheel do everything they can to make sure this St. Paul’s place churns out American food to make their diners grin every single time. The Fat Bear London’s location above The Rising Sun on Carter Lane is humble, too, and these surroundings make a damn good space for enjoying real American food. Speaking of which…
The Fat Bear’s main menu, whilst not huge, offers favourites from around the US that go past burgers that are ridiculously tall and too hard to eat. Begin with devilled eggs (an American classic), pimento cheese (the caviar of the south), or a luxurious chicken, andouille and shrimp gumbo. For your main we’d certainly recommend the seafood jambalaya complete with prawns, catfish, crayfish and sausage, or the southern fried corn-fed chicken with waffles and maple agave syrup. London, St. Paul’s, prepare to fill your boots...
Fantastic meal again at the fat bear and great service. The vegan gumbo was delicious and finished off with the cornflake ice cream from ice cream union - excellent.
Always good food and excellent service - great for business lunches too as it is fairly quiet inside. The gumbo never disappoints and the cheesecake was awesome.
Second visit to this wee gem of a restaurant- I love it. Staff, food, atmosphere are great. Will definitely return on my next visit to London.
