A culinary delight! This was my second visit, as a wedding anniversary treat. The four course dinner was superb, however the chef’s nibbles you get in between courses are just as delicious.

The ambience is classy but not OTT. The staff are all wonderfully informed, helpful, attentive and friendly.

My 3rd Michelin star visit this month and this was fabulous. We had the 3 course set lunch, which also include a pre starter and pre dessert and bread. Excellent crab, my cod was lovely but the poached pear was incredible!
Great service but didn't have the same level of 'you are valued' as other similair restaurants in London. It was packed and the waiters were knowledgeable but didn't have the same friendly chat that places like Restaurant Story has. Overall fantastic place and we will be back.

My 3-course set lunch birthday experience was very good especially taking into consideration the current national restrictions. Service was exemplary as was the the ambience.

Only gripe was that the food was served at a tepid temperature and on cold plates.
Also, although the food was really good it didn't have the 'wow' factor when comparing against similar type of high end restaurants.

Our first venture into London since lockdown for a lunch date with my husband. The 9 course tasting menu was amazing as was the service and the friendliness from all the staff. It was truly a wonderful experience and especially when Jason Atherton took the time to have a chat with us at our table. Love this place and all of JA restaurants in London.

Hospitality is an essential service and should be recognised as such.

Cannot wait to visit again xx

I had the vegetarian tasting menu and wasn't that keen on a few of the dishes; the afternoon tea is usually my favourite and this time it was too strong. I wondered if there was a different chef as I've never been disappointed before. However, as always you are given lots of time to indulge, everything is served beautifully and it is an exciting, wonderful experience.

Our first vegan fine dining experience and we were not disappointed. We had the 8 course tasting menu. The courses were small but mostly spectacular. The only course that let things down a bit was the mushroom risotto which I felt was rather mundane in comparison to the others. As always, the service was excellent!

Always a treat to visit my favourite restaurant. The four course lunch isn’t cheap but there is a generosity of spirit with the wonderful and plentiful canapés, several intermediate courses and petit fours all included. It’s great to be supporting such exceptional restaurants during these challenging times.

We always feel welcomed back like friends rather than as clients. The food as usual is of the finest quality especially at the very reasonable set menu price.
An absolute joy to revisit for all occasions.

Dined here for lunch which was a good value offer at £15 per course . Presentation was sharp and flavours well balanced . The amuse bouche of ' afternoon tea ' was very good . Nice light and airy restaurant and good to see reusable face masks being worn by all the staff .

Booked for a birthday dinner. Food was superb and each dish a feast for the eyes. Ordered the 4 course menu but ended up being served 8 or 9 courses with all the delicious extras, amuse-bouches and petits fours, started off with the "afternoon tea" which was just amazing. The handwritten card and birthday cake were a lovely attention and much appreciated.
It was quite a busy Saturday evening so service was a bit slow at the beginning, which meant we were a bit rushed at the end as they struggled to meet the 10pm curfew. We were seated in a quiet area with just one other "birthday" table. We appreciated the seclusion but others might prefer the more atmospheric and busier main section of the restaurant. Superb wine card, but not many reasonably-priced options for the more budget conscious.

Lovely food and brilliant value for what we got (3 course set lunch, which came with an amuse bouche and palate cleanser as well). Lovely half bottle of Chablis to go with it.

Staff impeccable and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble, but service was not stiff in any way.

This is my third time at Pollen Street Social and I can't wait to go back.
