Traditional French
Having spent years supplying London’s top restaurants through their separate wine businesses, Joe Haynes and Benedict Butterworth have joined forces with Tom Hurst, who has worked at Brawn, The Marksman, Levan, and most recently as Head Chef at Lasdun, to launch the trio’s first restaurant together.

Located in a Grade II listed building on Cloth Fair, Cloth Restaurant is part of a historic row of buildings in the City of London that survived the Great Fire of 1666. Down this atmospheric alley opposite St Bartholomew church, Cloth is taking over a double fronted corner site that’s beneath the former home of poet John Betjeman and next door to the two oldest residential buildings in London.

Inside, low ceilings, wood floorboards with antique wall lights and artwork create a cosy, intimate atmosphere, while marble tables, long dark wood banquettes, antique crockery and cutlery will create the feel of a classic bistro.

    Beautiful cosy authentic French restaurant. Great service, intimate candlelight and amazing food and wine. A non-city restaurant on the edge of the city

    Wonderful restaurant next to St Bartholemew The Great. Like walking into a family restaurant in Beaune. Serious food , inventive and made with precision. Glorious wine list with an excellent range by the glass.

    Cloth Restaurant is a wonderful new venue opposite St Bartholomew’s church in the Smithfield/Farringdon area. The French focussed menu is excellent and the wine list superb. The atmosphere is very cosy, in a heritage building and the staff are knowledgeable and absolutely charming. A great new restaurant - highly recommended!

    Very nice place, friendly, lively relaxed and an atmosphere of old London. Ditto the staff, apart from old London- they were young and hip! They did have, to us, and inordinate interest in where we came from and were we local! The food, sadly, sounded better than it was. . The pickle plate just tasted of balsamic vinegar and everything was that colour. Apple and horseradish sounded good for an oyster, but we couldn't find the horseradish, so was just sweet. The crab with ajo blanco was a good idea but the crab was on a base of something that was a bit chewy and soggy. The pork was too pink and the chickpea chard and salsa verde all mixed up together in quite a strong sauce all had one taste. It was also quite a wintery dish for almost June. The comte tart and pickled walnut was a good flavour but the pastry felt a bit tired. Good ideas but missed the button, maybe just an offday.
