More about The Localist, London

Dining at The Localist is like visiting with old friends. This charming and stylish establishment on St Johns Road in Farringdon boasts a delicious European-inspired menu alongside service that makes you feel like you’re at home. We recommend sampling several small plates to share, like the burrata with broad beans and pea shoots, arancini with chilli sauce and watercress or the The Localist meat and cheese board ideal for two people to nibble on while sampling one of their perfectly blended cocktails.

If you’re more inclined to sample something a little larger, their grilled lamb chop with green beans, spring cabbage and salsa verde, tuna steak served with rocket, baby corn, baby carrot and cherry tomatoes or perhaps their classic burger served with fries will be right up your alley – and if you do decide on The Localist’s classic burger, 70p is donated to their charity, The St. James’s Place Foundation so you can dine with a conscience. For classic European fare in a cosy and friendly spot in London, there’s no better choice than The Localist in Farringdon. However, bear in mind that this London hotspot does tend to fill up so booking in advance is recommended.
