Frolicking in Fields

In the midst of the hustle and bustle with business men and women going about their day, tucked out of sight in Lincoln’s Inn Fields is Fields Bar & Kitchen and it’s worth a visit

Upon arrival you’re faced with bright red benches, wooden furniture and a general state of “don’t tell ANYONE else about this place”. But of course, anyone working around Holborn, sniffed this place out long ago.

Myself and Jen arrived around 2pm when the majority of Business persons had already vacated. Fields has a good amount of outdoor seating, but we opted for a lovely table in the heart of the narrow restaurant instead. Out of the windows along one side we were entertained by two different doubles tennis matches between 6 men and 2 women, all with varying degrees of ability! Hilarity ensued!!

You order and pay at the bar and then help yourself to the fridge and whatever drink you purchased, I got a yummy bubbly Rose Lemonade. The only downside to Fields – which I had been forewarned about – is that if you get a pizza, you’ll be treated to a tasty meal, reasonably priced….but go for anything else on the menu and the portion sizes are fit for Thumbelina, not really equalling their price tags! So, if you do plan on going – I suggest one of their pizzas!

As we’d been forewarned, Jen and I ordered, devoured and as a result, were extremely pleased with our pizzas! They were fresh, very flavourful and the crusts were nomnomnom!

The decor is lovely; fresh flowers in ceramic white gardening jugs along with windows on both sides and all that lovely polished wooden furniture make for a bright, friendly and inviting atmosphere.

At one end of Fields there’s a huge wooden table laden with lots of desserts and treats for you to oogle as you eat your main. We didn’t end up trying any of these as we were full from our pizzas and battling a time crunch situation, but they did look great and will definitely be sampled awwwnother time!

All in all, I’d say it’s a really lovely lunchtime pit stop, but if you’re looking for a long drawn out affair, I’d save Fields for another day as the bustly nature of the place does make you feel like you’re taking up room if you sit around for too long post meal!

    This restaurant looks amazing, and looking at those pizzas makes me feel famished. I must check it out since it is located about five minute walk from my flat… 🙂
