Blackfoot unveils a new look and becomes Blackfoot Bar and Backroom Dining

We've been fans of Blackfoot since it opened and we're intrigued to see that the restaurant is getting something of an upheaval and a name change in the process. It's just been renames to Blackfoot Bar and Backroom Dining, and there are some obvious changes that come with that renaming.

Now the front room - which looks much like the old pie and mash shop it used to be - will become a casual bar space, with cocktails from Maverick including "The Cleaver" (Balcones Brimstone smokey Bourbon, Bitter Bastards white truffle bitters and honey water). And they've added more beers too - with beers & ciders on seven taps and a wine list featuring "family favourites to offbeat". If you're booking, there's the dining room at the back - taking bookings from two to 20. 

As we're firmly in Spring, expect a more seasonal Spring menu on offer and while pig remains on the menu - there's more besides. They'll still have the Long Smoke and Ibérico Presa on the menu, but new additions include:

  • Chargrilled Wild King Prawns with Aioli
  • Fritto Misto of seasonal veg
  • Beetroot Falafel with Dukkah
  • Lincolnshire Poacher with Allegra’s new season’s marmalade
  • Chicken Shashlik with Sumac, Lemon and Cumin. 

Blackfoot Bar and Backroom Dining is at 46 Exmouth Market, London EC1R 4QE. It opens six days a week for lunch from 12-3 (including the Porchetta bar and the “Pigs can Fly” menu) and dinner (plus bar snacks) from 5.30-10.30pm. For more, follow them on Twitter @blackfootec1
