In line with the Prime Minister’s roadmap, Harts Group has opened booking for outdoor dining at the following restaurants from 12th April.

Reservations for indoor dining will be opened in due course. Private event enquiries are being taken now for later in 2021 through the individual restaurants’ websites.

Barrafina Dean Street, 26-27 Dean St, Soho, London W1D 3LL

The original Barrafina’s outdoor offering has been reinforced with extra al fresco tables, covered with strong parasols and embellished with powerful heaters. Michelin starred ham croquetas, daily changing specials and cañas of Estrella Galicia are waiting right in the heart of Soho.

Parrillan, Coal Drops Yard, Stable St, Kings Cross, London N1C 4AB

Parrillan, the glamourous sister of Barrafina, will be back serving its spring menu of classic para picar, arroces and a choice of meats, seafood and vegetables to be finished by guests on their own bespoke parrilla mini-grills.

The team have added glass sides in addition to the restaurant’s glass roof and heaters, to protect guests from any temperamental weather. The tabletop grills also help keep things toasty. There are a few tables outside of the cover and heaters which are open to the elements and so walk-in only.

El Pastor, 7a Stoney Street, London SE1 9AA

Heated parasols on the pavement, micheladas, critically acclaimed tacos al pastor and sesame-arbol tuna on heritage corn tostadas offer one of the closest experiences to a foreign holiday possible this side of May 17th.

El Pastor is walk-in only but will be running a virtual queue, so no loitering necessary.
