Borough Yards, the new development opening up just down the road from the iconic Borough Market, is already home to Parriilan and wine bar Bar Daskal from the Harts Group, and now Barrafina is set to join the party. Pitching up next door to Bar Daskal, this will be the first Barrafina south of the river and like its sister sites, an open kitchen and marble bar will take centre stage in the space.

The menu will follow the same format as the other Barrafina sites, with classic tapas dishes, daily changing specials and some new creations exclusive to Borough Yards. You can expect the likes of ensalada payesa, a Balearic panzanella; torreznos, fried pork belly tapa; tortillas with shrimp and Basque sausage; daily changing fish stew from Menorca; yellowtail tartar with green apple & shallot confit; chicken catalana; arros brut, which translates to ‘dirty rice’; black pudding, cheese & straw potato sandwich; Mallorcan cheesecake with chocolate sauce & mint ice cream; and fried Catalan pastries with almond cream. Naturally the drinks list is heavily Spanish, with wines, sherries, G&Ts and Estrella Galicia beer all on there.

With their soon-to-be three sites, Harts Group have carved out a little slice of Spain in Borough Yards and we are here for it.
