Disappointing cooking compared to previous visits. A ‘crispy pigs trotter’ was shredded pork in a filo parcel and deep fried. Would have expected the crispness to come from the pork skin . A bit greasy and unpleasant . The beef in the pithivier was cooked to oblivion and shredded . No beef taste at all . The cow died in vain !

This is a great place for Sunday lunch or for a nice relaxed meal in the evening . The food and wine are both good and the waiting staff were excellent. Unfortunately when we were there the male chef wore his mask on his chin for the whole time although the other female chef and all the other waiting staff were wearing masks. It must be difficult to work in a hot place with a mask on but failing to wear a mask puts all the rest of the staff in danger.

Fantastic food as always. Great atmosphere (they’ve adapted well to the new table spacing without spoiling the ambiance). Service was outstanding - charming, friendly waiter. However, the pricing of dishes, whilst not totally unreasonable, is significantly higher than on previous visits.

We sat outside and had an absolutely amazing dinner . We had plenty of cover from the weather and the heaters were really good. Great place to come ( especially now ) for great snacks, amazing wine, and one of the best chocolate tarts I've ever had. Will definitely be revisiting soon !

Clipstone is a very special restaurant. My friend (for whom it was their 1st visit) said ‘for me - the staff made it with their definitive recommendations for food /wine / cocktails’.
THANKYOU Arturo, Caspar and of course Gethin.
Special mention for the delicia pumpkin with comte cream, sea bream & ginger ice cream (not on the same plate!).
Clipstone, you knock it out of the park.

Excellent. The pork loin was very good but, personally, I would have liked a slightly thinner piece, but for heartier appetites I am sure it was perfect.

This restaurant has a local independent feel, relatively quiet but not without atmosphere. Service was friendly, not over the top or imposing. Food was beautiful, clever food and taste combinations, great presentation. Wines equally good. Highly recommend.

High quality, seasonal British ingredients cooked perefectly. Simple decor and unpretentious service, making it a place to relax and have great food without feeling stuffy. I would highly recommend the venison, it was just the amount of rare to be truly delicious.

A real treasure buried in the heart of Fitzrovia - the menu is imaginative and original, the food delicious and the staff charming. It's a little expensive but worth it for a really memorable meal out.

Really excellent lunch with two friends at Clipstone. The set lunch was so delicious and we loved all of our choices. Our waitress was charming and delivered excellent service. The entire experience was memorable and it was good to see the restaurant so well supported on a Tuesday lunchtime despite the times we're living in. The Covid restrictions were safe yet discreet and didn't impede at all. The only slight downer was the noise - maybe our age (!) but the music was quite loud and it was difficult to hear each other at times.

Was very excited to dine at Clipstone and the service was delightful, they were very attentive and friendly.
Unfortunately, we were a little disappointed with the food. We didn't feel anything was very outstanding, this may have been due to a changing menu.
It was busy with a nice ambience though.

Delicious food and great service, and crucially in today's day and age the restaurant had good social distancing, hand sanitiser on each table, and all waiters wore masks.
