As we are a very small restaurant, we will need your table back after 1 hour 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…
Please note: for bookings of more than 8 guests, we offer a 3 course reduced menu. This is £26 at lunchtime or £45 at dinner.
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.
Love everything about Clipstone. Acoustics not the greatest but food, service, music, style... all exemplary.
The food is good and original. My halibut was however overcooked 😕
My favourite restaurant in London never disappoints.
The service here is second to none. Thank you to Pan for being a waitress with humour, knowledge, warmth, smiles, and mostly absolute conviction about the menu. A pleasure to be served by her.
The food is always A1 (tho I have it at 4* today as the tomato salad was a bit served looking a bit rough with a couple slices over soft, and there were some unchewable pieces in the rillettes that I couldn’t eat). Minor points. That said, the new delicate clam dish is a revelation. Hats off to the creator. I’ll be back (again and again and again). Thanks team Clipstone. You’re a restaurant full of exceptional stars.
The food at clipstone is always so fresh and delicious and the staff are lovely and attentive .
The food was really great and the service was wonderful and accommodating. Two people in the group had somewhat severe dietary restrictions and the server was fantastic at catering to the restrictions. The only issue was the noise level - it can get loud - so worth considering.
Amazing! The chef really knows how to blend flavors well. He is a true artist And the staff are always a delight. Bravo!
Fabulous food and very friendly service for a most reasonable price. I would recommend it wholeheartedly
Food was absolutely fantastic as was the service and value for money. Only improved by slightly better drinks (the g&t and wine didn't quite match the quality of everything else).
A very popular restaurant with a small but interesting menu. When we were there it was very busy and tables are very close together giving a cramped feeling. Halibut and Brill crudo were both excellent but pricey. Interesting but not a relaxing evening.
Had a wonderful meal last night st Clipstone. We went for an outside table which was originally a bit squished in but improved as diners thinned out. Food and service were excellent. We had a well priced bottle of champagne which took us through from a snack of squid ink arancini to a fabulous young comté. Fantastic neighbourhood style restaurant with faultless cooking. What more can I say?
One of the best restaurants in London, never fails to impress!
Lunchtime set menu has absolutely delicious food and is exceptional value. I’ve been a few times now and it’s consistently really good.
Excellent food, innovative yet simple - with ideal portions and balance for a lunch. The only downside was the noise level. the tables are very close together and the acoustics are such that it was very difficult to hear my dining partner.
Excellent choice on the set menu.Food was delicious.
The food was excellent and very good value. The only snag was that the side dishes didn't arrive with the mains - we were left waiting for them for some time and had to chase them up, and then we didn't get an apology. It seemed to us that the sides order hadn't been passed through. However the cost of the sides was later removed from our bill, which was good. If someone had said 'Sorry' we would have been much happier about it.
We would definitely visit again though
Had three courses set lunch there on a nice Monday, would definitely recommend to stop by and enjoy the great food there.
Food and wine was delicious. Staff not super attentive. Really bad acoustics, got incredibly loud later in the evening.
Beautiful fresh seasonal ingredients with outstanding presentation and taste.
Didn’t really meet expectations I’m afraid
Nothing bad to say but can’t enthuse either
Loved the coriander ice cream and the bread in particular.
The fish was a bit too salty.
I really think this is an undiscovered gem in London. The set lunch is incredible value and absolutely delicious food, interesting wine list and great service. I’ve been a few times now and wouldn’t hesitate to recommended it.
Great food ruined by incredibley noisy space. Could hear one another despite shouting!
Friendly and proactive staff, nice food portion, slightly too noisy for me as I visited for lunch during the week but it is a nice spot for decent food with good value in very central London.
Terrific food - this was our second visit since a year ago - always yummy eats, such good drinks, lovely service.
We love Clipstone - the staff are so sweet, the food is so delicious and we have have a great time every time we're there - can't wait to go back
Busy good quality food interesting menu and wine list great service was it worth £180 for 2 no
I was recommended this place by a friend and the food was outstanding. I had the 2 course lunch menu. The staff were friendly and attentive. I’ll most definitely be going back.
Truly beautiful food, fabulous menu and excellent cocktails. Service was also wonderful would highly recommend!
Absolutely delicious food in a straightforward setting. Lovely friendly staff and an original wine list. A touch on the noisy side but that seems to be par for the course in London restaurants these days!
Bit pricey and the sommelier needs to smile a bit more. But the food was good.
My favorite in London! We always end up being the last ones.
This is the second time I have been. The food and wine has been excellent both times. Only thing I found disappointing on the menu so far has been the cheese. The staff are very friendly and it's a nice relaxed atmosphere.
Great neighbourhood restaurant, serving fresh, light and delicious food. From start to finish the food is a delight in Clipstone. There’s a real buzz to the restaurant with its open kitchen and casual feel, yet the food is a cut above, impeccably presented but unfussy.
After our first impulsive visit we brought our parents for a Saturday lunch fixed menu and we were as bowled over the second time. We’d eaten at a Michelin starred restaurant the prior evening, Clipstone outshone the that meal by some way and for considerably lest money.
Can’t wait to come back!!!
I'm really impressed with Clipstone. Fantastic service and with having a new born with us, they were able to accommodate us in one quite corner. Plus delayed the food service to help us out. Really delightful to deal with and great value for the high quality food they deliver.
Food and service was spectacular! We had the Cod, Bread, Asparagus & Ravioli, and all were delicious. Our server also made a great wine recommendation, so I would 10/10 recommend.
Super food. Nice tastes. Really accommodating staff. Really lovely!
Very nice meal. Am a fan of Clipstone since it opened. Consistently good food. Not increasingly popular so you need to book
Maybe I expected too much.
Food quality was so so.. (meat was too salty)
Staff was too busy to tell us we have 30min left for our table. (we know.... I think they are not trained.)
Personally, this is not what I expected in this price range.
Great food. Tables are a bit tight but well worth the price
Food was excellent. Each dish unique and prepared with great care and blending beautiful tastes and wonderful to the eye. Each dish is standalone and seems to blend usual and unusual tastes. Everything was very fresh. Good wine selection Easy to find. Desserts were good with fresh ingredients and nice ice cream.
