Polo Bar, Bishopsgate – Late night belly filler

After a night out boozing around the city, we were hungry. We had missed KFC and did not feel like making our way to our respective hoods to procure kebabs. We were in the Trading House and a city drinker overheard our despair. He told us about Polo Bar, a local late night food haunt over a couple of floors offering decent food into the early hours. Yes, our prayers had been answered.


We headed on down to Liverpool Street and literally across the road from its entrance, there was Polo. You have options here, you can buy to go. Choose from massively filled hot dogs and much more, or you can get seated on one of the floors via a skinny staircase.

We were put on the 2nd floor which already had other hungry revelers. We sat, perused the menu and were impressed with the offering although a little anxious about what would actually turn up to your table once ordered. Pranvera ordered ribs and damn they were big. This portion is not for the faint-hearted and even being hungry at this time of night, I think this is definitely a dish which could be shared.


I went for steak which came with breaded mushrooms and onions on a pile of chips. Her ribs came with sweet potato chips and a gorgeous BBQ sauce. Considering this was quite late night, I was impressed with the standard of service and food. It was also not massively expensive to compensate for the inconvenient hours these poor folk have to work.

I liked Polo and if I am ever in the area again in need of a twilight food injection, this will be my spot of choice.
