Seating Types
We offer three different seating options: our tables, stools at our window counter or - weather permitting - bench seats at our larger outdoor communal tables.
Please be aware: Outdoor tables are available only if the weather permits. We may not have an alternative table available inside in some instances.


As we are a very small restaurant, we will need your table back after 1 hours and 30 minutes at lunch and 1 hour 45 minutes in the evening, which will be ample time to enjoy what we offer. Should you require a little longer or it’s a special occasion, may we cheekily suggest Portland (!) just around the corner…


Clipstone is a new neighbourhood restaurant located on the corner of Clipstone Street in Fitzrovia.


We offer the same focus on high-quality cooking, wine and service as our sister restaurant Portland but in a more informal setting.

Consistently very good food. Classic flavours with just enough of a twist to be interesting but not wacky. Good freindly service. Some great unusual wines.

Very good food, as you'd expect given the relationship with the Portland, but a bit noisy for conversation on a Wednesday evening at 8.00pm.

Really good, buzzy, warm restaurant. We enjoyed all the food we ate - particularly the baked cauliflower and pork rilettes. It was a busy Thurs evening and we felt the service was quite rushed - they turn tables after 1 hour 45 so if you’re in the market for a leisurely meal and a couple drinks afterwards, probably not the best option...

A fabulous evening at Clipstone. Our first time and not last. The service (including a signed anniversary card) was confident and attentive throughout and the food outstanding. From our table we could see the open kitchen where four young chefs were preparing dinner with utmost professionalism. The informal style of the dining room created perfect buzzy ambience - reminded us of our favourite NYC restaurants.
Highly recommended.

Food very plentiful, interesting unusual flavour combinations, service very attentive, one mistake on a request for gluten free, but quickly realised and corrected, the slight hesitation, it was left on the bill, but immediately removed when pointed out, just wish the waiter had looked our bill before presenting it. Definitely would recommend.

Clipstone benefits from being a bit outside the main tourist area: It provides excellent food supported by a varied and imaginative wine list at keen prices by London standards. The style is informal and understated but the slick, professional service keeps the focus on the food and wine, and makes dining there a very pleasant experience. As a visitor from out of town I will inevitably try other recommended restaurants; but Clipstone will always be on my top list.

Wonderful food as always but we had quite a long wait for our first course and it was very noisy while we there. Clipstone is deservedly popular, so I can understand the delay, but it is probably not the best place to take someone with a hearing aid!

The dinner was a true delight. While the menu is short each plate was wonderfully creative and delicious. The tartare under cheese and mushroom mounds was a treat, the venison tender and tasty the sauce rich and indulgent, my Mille feuille (though not a fav of mine) was special. Really friendly and knowledgeable service. Will be back.
