Patch St Pauls reviews



By Laura F.

If I have to believe in all reviews that people post in websites I would not have a great time that I had tonight. Thank you all!


By Adam C.

I wouldn't waste my time to write bad review just for fun. Mate, If I don't like the place I just simply don't come back. I like very much to go down there and have a beautiful ladies ( specially Fridays she is hot! ) playing my fave tunes even the door man is nice ( usually they don't ).


By Karin E.

I certainly don't agree withe this review. I have been going to Patch since the day it opened and have never found the staff unhelpful or rude. In fact the exact opposite, they are friendly, helpful and welcoming at all times, no matter how busy they are. I was there on Friday night (17th Sept) and it was very busy but the staff were still polite and friendly. I am on crutches at the moment and find it difficult to get around but even thou they were busy the staff still managed to find me a seat, which was very much appreciate. The buzz was great and the music was fab, great night. Their happy hour rocks, great cocktails guys! I have had birthday parties and corporate function at Patch and even went to see the football during the world cup and I can honestly say that no matter how busy the place, the food, booze and the staff have always lived up to expectations. I can't praise the place enough. I am your biggest fan xx


By Debbie M.

Don't agree with this review. I am a regular since Patch opened. Even the staff keep changing they always are nice. My sister had a weeding over there just because Patch is so special for us and for our mates. It's unbelieveble the review above.

The bar staff take an eternity to serve you and they don't serve pints. The platers are rubbery. I wouldn't recommend it just another city "bar".


By M A.

Went to Patch last night and had a great platter to share for only £9.95 the servings were HUGE. Atmosphere was great with some funky music. Would go back again... Nice bar staff too!


By M A.

Fantastic food, amazing service. Mouthwatering tapas and gorgeous cocktails all for an excellent price (particularly in this pricey area). Great atmosphere . I would definitely recommend Patch for the great service and delicious food.


By Layla P.

By Sam A.

Excellent place had a birthday party bar staff were fun and vibrant and the waitresses are excellent to with making sure we were ok and area was clean at all times... Happy hour is also great with 1/2 price cocktails and half price wines.. so if u fancy a dance i recommend this place to everyone.. Patch Bar on my fave list....


By Caroline M.

Fab place, be sure to catchthe happy hour which really is a bargain with all drinks half price (even on good bottles of wine). Good atmosphere and usually packed by 8pm.

Who said chain bars in The City have to be high on price and low on quality? Patch argues the point and makes a convincing case.

The Venue
Situated on Carter Lane – a narrow street a short walk from St Paul's Cathedral – Patch is a modern basement cocktail bar. From the outside, it looks like any other generic City venue with a clean-looking frontage and a bouncer on the door. Once inside, although still notably contemporary, it has a less generic feel. And despite being part of a chain (along with Clause and Pause) it doesn’t suffer the usual chain bar trappings.

The venue is split across two floors. Upstairs has an airy feel with large windows and natural lighting, and is often hired out to private parties. Downstairs, the interior is based loosely on an LA apartment. You've got interesting wired seats and low and high chairs and sofas, character wallpaper and various segmented areas that you can sit privately in. The toilets are even impressive – each cubicle is massive.

The Atmosphere
This bar has a really relaxed feel, despite being within the confines of The City. Yes, you've got your suits, but it's actually more subtly corporate than many of the surrounding bars. And this is complemented by the friendly staff, who have a strong knowledge of the food and drink. Despite the recession, Patch has managed to stay reasonably busy during the post-work period on a Thursday and Friday night.

The Food
When it comes to chains, you naturally assume the food is going to be pre-processed and sub-standard. Impressively, this isn't the case at Patch. A reasonable amount of the menu is homemade and it’s all nicely presented.

There is a wide selection of good value specials (£5-£6) served daily at lunchtimes. These include everything from traditional fish and chips to more adventurous stir-fry dishes. Alongside this, you've got a selection of sandwiches (£6-£7), which include wraps, burgers, stacks and toasties with chunky chips. There are also sharing slates (£14.75-£18), small plates of mezze dishes (priced £4-£5) and bar snacks (£3).

The four sharing slates are excellent quality. Graze – the meat-free platter – is a good size to share between two people. It's beautifully presented on a black slate-like board. The falafel skewers aren't too oily and have a crunchy bite to them without being over fried. They perfectly complement the soft and mildly smoky baba ghanoush. The tortilla isn't too salty and the potatoes and onions are well cooked. The warm pita is heated so it’s soft and not too crunchy and goes really well with the homemade hummus, which is creamy, with just the right amount of tahini and garlic to give it a twist. The onion bhajis aren't too greasy, but could be criticised for being a little dry.

If you're looking for meat and fish additions to your meal, then the Bite sharing slate (£15.95) is a good option. Both the lamb koftas and meatballs have a good bite to them, but the texture is a little dry. The sausage and bacon skewers are flavoursome and have an unusual peppery glaze. The sharp-tasting honey mustard pot that comes with the slate goes really well with these.

Alternatively, Nibble (£16.95) is worth getting for the cold meats. The chorizo is distinctively smoky, but not too peppery and the prosciutto is flavoursome and slightly salty. The marinated olives have got a garlic bite to them but aren’t too vinegary.

Finally, the sushi selection (£4.75) from the small plates is a good choice. Impressively, the venue makes its own sushi. It tastes fresh and zesty with a sharp, but not too vinegary flavour. The rice could be criticised for being a little stodgy for a light fish dish, however.

The Drink
When it comes to drinks, Patch really means business. There are 12 white, 12 red and three rose wines on offer. Prices start at £13.35 for a bottle of house white or red (£4.45 a glass) and go up to around £40 for more specialist wines. There are also eight Champagnes, three pinks and two magnums on the menu. Prices start at £6.60 for a 150ml glass of house Champagne, rising to £185 for a magnum of Veuve Clicquot Rose. If you're looking for a good quality, averagely priced white then the Spanish Marques de Riscal Rueda Blanco (£22.25) is an ideal choice. This intensely aromatic wine has a fresh, subtle flavour that goes with most meat and fish dishes on the menu.

Beer and ciders available include Asahi, Becks, Corona, Heineken, Peroni and Magners at £3.50-£4. The cocktails, however, are what make the bar stand out. There are more than 20 on the menu and they're sectioned into types, which include names such as Weird and Wonderful, Bramble Fruits and The Sweet Trolley. All are priced at £6.50. The Tokyo (sake, cucumber, wasabi, lime juice and sugar) may sound disgusting but in reality the fresh and zesty cucumber flavour perfectly complements the subtle undertone of the wasabi. The lime juice adds to the mix and the sprinkling of sugar ensures it's sweet enough. Beetlejuice is also worth trying, even if you hate beetroot. Somehow, gin, sweet vermouth, beetroot and blood orange work together to make a sweet-tasting drink with a strong consistency.

The Last Word
With homemade food and refreshing original cocktails, Patch is a welcome addition to the Square Mile.
