The Commissary, Holborn Studios

The Commissary Bar & Restaurant is joined onto Holborn Studios on Eagle Wharf Road alongside Regent's canal. When the weather is behaving it's a great place to head for lunch and sit outside on the dock.

The interior is modern and artistic, with a big theme on cameras and film - due to being part of Holborn Studios. To paint a picture for you, on the way to the toilets there's a beautiful vintage projector and there a little images of clapperboards held by mini tripods for the table numbers.

They serve breakfast and lunch but on our visit we sampled the cheese board between three of us and the chunks of gorgonzola, stilton and cheddar were so generous that, for a brief moment, we thought we wouldn't be able to finish it all.

We did......

The accompanying pickle and celery sticks were perfect alongside these three heavyweight flavours.

The rest of the menu looks tasty and I did spy a couple of massive burgers going to another table to be devoured. The lunch menu changes daily but they have a sample menu which should give an indication of the style of sharable dishes on offer.

Because there are various different projects and shoots happening at the studios it's likely you'll spot some celebrities (or if you're lucky, some vaguely recognizable people). While sitting out on the dock, The Arctic Monkeys were sat a few tables away enjoying a quiet break from (I presume) a photo shoot. I'm afraid I didn't have the nerve to ask for a photo so instead of the Arctic Monkeys, you can have this one.
