Description: Fusing industrial chic with warm informality in the hip yet historical Farringdon area, The Localist is the newest addition to the London restaurant scene. Patrons enjoy a seasonally-driven European menu paired with a curated selection of international wines, draft beers on tap and quirky cocktails, often accompanied by enigmatic live music. Our chef has created a modern European menu that features everything from burrata to burgers, chicken salad to sea bass, and fish & chips to mussel linguine. Regardless of if you opt for our healthy vegan quinoa salad or indulge in our succulent sirloin steak, The Localist will satisfy any craving. Come for our food but stay for the Bar, serving fresh and vibrant cocktails, wine and beer all day and well into the night. We even have a 2 for 1 happy hour from 4 to 8! Whether you’re looking for a smart local hub, hoping to meet up with colleagues, planning a group dining event or a birthday party or even arranging a romantic night out, The Localist delivers a sincere and savoury experience. We are open 6 days a week, covering breakfast, lunch and dinner, and we can accommodate up to 350 people for large events and, if you’re interested in a more intimate gathering, we also have 3 private rooms available, that can hold anywhere from 6 up to 150 people standing. Our barmen have mixed delicious cocktails to pair with your meal and our Dj has prepared a special playlist to take your dining experience to the next level. You just need to sit back and enjoy!

This new place has just opened in Farringdon about 2 weeks ago and it is a great surprise!
I was there the last week and I have to say WOW!

The style of the restaurant is modern with the open view kitchen ( you can see the chefs at work) therefore I loved it.

Service and food was definitely fantastic, especially for a new restaurant with no history on the place!

I have tasted the peas soup and the "arancini with chili sauce" and I've really enjoyed. The dishes were superb! Well cooked and really tasty!

The waiter was very kind and really acknowledge!

I will be back soon!

The restaurant has just opened and has been tastefully done up - trendy but elegant. Great welcome from the staff; simple menu with everything served beautifully; tasty and reasonably priced food. Definitely a good start for the restaurant - wish them well!
