Primeur will re-open in the aftermath of the 2020 health crisis with a few alterations to comply with guidelines and provide a safe and enjoyable dining experience for our staff and all who visit.

*In accordance with government guidelines, from 17/10/20 you must book in as only one household*

Excellent food at a great price from the Sunday all-day prixe-fixe menu (£20 for two courses and a glass of house wine/beer).

We added to set menu with starters and an extra drink each and paid £35 each + service charge. Highly recommend visiting Primeur and myriad sister restaurants in Islington and Hackney.

Very good service and ambience, however rather unclear about the necessity to inform Primeur about being Non-pork eaters. Primeur show two options on the menu and this meant that me and my partner thought the veggie option would be available without having to inform the eatery. On the other hand, Primeur were very good at ensuring we had a non-pork meal and sorted this out for us instantly.

Lovely restaurant that has managed to adapt to the current environment mindful of its locals by putting a delightful set menu at a reasonable price. We’ve been patrons since it opened and will continue to support Primeur.

Primeur is gorgeous. Our waiters were attentive, smart, lovely, knowledgable. The food was really incredible- set menu w options and we were kind of swooning over it. If I could continue to talk about the raw sheep's cheese without risking my relationships I would. It's all I want to talk about. So delicious. It's also v casual Beautiful thoughtful lighting and arrangement. And in Covid times feels safe and clean and pleasantly socially distanced without being lonely.

We were a group of six and were sat in the secluded corner downstairs.
Excellent food and service, and of course very intimate and no noise (apart our own!)
Liked the fixed menu. All dishes were delicious.

A lovely late lunch in Primuer’s sun bathed dining room. Food to the same high quality as this and their other establishments are known for.

Great wine list, and the staff know what is drinking well
And I’m always happy to put myself in their hands.

Third visit and just gets better every time. Love the set menu. It always seems really understated to read the menu and then you eat the food and it’s so so delicious. Constantly trying to figure out what they’ve done to make it taste so good. Every dish was amazing - the flat bread, roe, cauliflower, pollock, rice pudding, cheese Wow! I’ll be back soon

The pork tonnato was incredible. Loved the service and the extra precautions around coronavirus. There’s a private dining room downstairs (seats 8), which I definitely plan to try someday!

Very good Covid 19 measures being applied- reservations only, good spacing between diners and saw that table & chairs were cleaned in between sittings. Set menu only being served which was quite good value at £17 for 2 courses including a small glass of wine or beer. The pasta dish was very tasty but was a very small portion so would have been better value if the accompanying bowl of salad had been per diner rather than between 2. Tiramisu was delicious. Slightly disappointed no coffee available. Nice ambiance. Lovely friendly service.

Very basic meal. Pork was very dry. Dessert of cheese and bread left much to be desired. I’d be happy with the meal and wine if it was 50% cheaper as the price was not worth the food.

What a lovely, refreshingly simple, fuss-free menu. I am still thinking about it. Yes, there is less or no choice, but I absolutely loved the modern simplicity of a 4 course menu for such great value. Everything was well considered, ingredients were full of flavour (I am still thinking of that baked peach! Or the focaccia & ham), and wonderfully put together. Service & ambiance was as per usual, on point. Thank you for a lovely evening. You guys never disappoint.

Really loved the new set menu format and only having two sittings per evening - having everyone in the restaurant eat at once really made it feel very relaxed. Reminded me of family run agriturismos in Italy, with simple dishes cooked perfectly. I would highly recommend!
