Darby’s is somewhere for all of life’s occasions, from a post-work catch up over a pair of negronis to a masterful blowout! We believe life is to be lived to the fullest. Our NYC inspired oyster bar, large open grill and bakery are stacked to the rafters with the best ingredients we have at our fingertips across Britain and Ireland.
'Our goal was to create the quintessential neighbourhood joint. For us, that means the best daily bread and pastries made using British heritage grains and a celebration of craft from the kitchen, through to the bar obsessing over the best quality ingredients from our beloved purveyors. Coming from a neighbourhood restaurant background, having opened The Dairy, Sorella and Counter Culture in Clapham, we are taking all that we have learned since our first opening in 2013 and bringing it to Embassy Gardens. Our kitchen pays as much respect to nature as is possible by sourcing directly from farms and buying whole animals for our butchery and ageing onsite. We will be cooking large cuts over fire which means plenty of sharing dishes.
I’ve named Darby’s after my trumpet-playing father who lived life to the full and toured New York and Chicago during the 50s and 60s. This place is inspired by him and all the things he loved in life; music, food and, of course, family. We have an extensive live music line-up so please sign up to our newsletter and keep an eye on our events page to follow our revolving programme. Sláinte!’
