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.

    Hidden away off the busy streets of Farringdon, Cloth is the perfect hideaway from the busy and energetic Square Mile! With it's beautifully done interior giving off a warm and elegant feel, they have managed to make the close quarter dining somehow made feel private. The delicious food is only bettered by the meticulous service and the very knowledgeable staff. We ordered several small plates, a few starters and a main to share given we wanted to try everything - ended up ordering more of most of them. 100% must be visited if you're in the area - you'll most definitely see me there again!

    A hidden gem has arrived in the Smithfield Quarter. Our first visit and certainly not our last to this new restaurant, great food, ambience and service. Although a short menu, it was difficult to chose. The wine list is varied and excellent value for some truly fine wines.

    Incredible candle-lit meal. The sirloin steak with snails blew us away. Highly recommend.
