About

Craft London is a British restaurant, cocktail bar and café from acclaimed Chef Stevie Parle and designer Tom Dixon.

Craft uses British produce sourced from trusted farmers and suppliers from across the country. It roasts its own coffee, smokes its own fish, cures meats, ferments vegetables, keeps bees and grows vegetables on the Greenwich Peninsula Jetty.

The restaurant offers an ever-changing, seasonal menu of snacks, starters, mains and desserts. Vegetables, fish and meats are cooked over a custom-built wood fire and breads are made using a tandoor oven. Dishes include fresh heritage tomato salad, egg-yolk tagliorini with crab, Norfolk black chicken with broad beans and peas, T-Bone steak for two and a Craft London burger with house pickles.

An extensive wine list balances well-known varieties with small-scale, organic wine producers from across Europe.

Craft also hosts an upstairs cocktail bar offering views across London and a café serving all-day brunch and sourdough pizzas.

Better than the chain restaurants in the O2, good for couples.

A perfect location for the O2. Service was very attentive and the rooftop bar in particular was excellent, spoiled only by the weather

Vegan option ridiculously expensive. Tasty, but £18 for one slice of aubergine is extortion

Turned up and they didn't have space.
Refused to acknowledge that we had a booking and blamed us (the customer) for assuming that a confirmation email constituted a booking at there restaurant.

We were left at late notice to find somewhere to eat at a crowded O2 arena. Shocking service and this Restaurant should be removed from your site as they openly admitted that they do not reserve tables from OpenTable

Unhappy and left hungry.

When I first used to go here there was a very Personal service, describing the food and it was friendly and polite.
Now they are disorganised and it’s all they can do to throw the food at the table. Hope they can get the service back.
I’d recommend the organic orange wine.

Staff did not know the menu. Could not remember what selection of Gins were available. Only 3 tables occupied but it took an age to get the attention of staff. Food nice but should be for the price.

Great bar for after the O2. Well be back for this.

We ate before which was all a bit rushed due to drama in the kitchen. Was nice that they didn’t add service to the bill and gave us a bottle of wine for free.

Food was way overpriced although good quality. Chicken on toast with ricotta would have been a nice lunchtime snack but at £21 for dinner I’d expect a lot more. Adding a big pile of strange leaves to a burger and chips is pretentious.

We came on a Saturday evening for the 4 course tasting menu. On arrival the restaurant was rather quiet, not what we expected for a Saturday evening. Service was average at best if not a little too direct at times. We've had tasting menus in many other restaurants before and this one was a bit dissapointing to be honest. It was filling, just felt like they were trying too hard to be on food trend, but didn't quite pull it off in our opinion.

An excellent place to eat before an event at the O2, where everywhere else is part of a chain. Excellent food and friendly service at a fair price, and you can hold a conversation too!

Great seasonal tasting menu, we both really enjoyed every course. Only negative was that the restaurant was a little on the quiet side for a Friday evening (bar was much more lively though)

The waitresses was ok, i kept asking gor the drinks to be filled up even though i was told someone would be there to serve, so ended up serving the drink myself because i got tired of calling the wait, but the wait for the food was so long i ended up not eating at my baby shower, my friends were kind of upset as well but i think the drinks made them feel ok lol..

Over priced and very small portions. Most of the menu had substitutions as they had run out of ingredients. I feel it is trying too hard and it is a big disappointment. Our waiters were very understanding and apologetic. It is not too often I get home hungry after an expensive meal. There are much better restaurants locally.

Nice views, ambiance and wine as always. Good food but the portions are minuscule and we had to add a cheese course to feel full. Can't understand why they are so stingy with the amount of food.

We visited Craft before an event at the O2. It was such a good choice. The best meal we’ve ever had at the O2. Beautiful food, we had the 3 courses for £25 offer. Service was spot-on with friendly staff looking after our every need. I would highly recommend and will definitely return.

The food was outstanding. As a party of 7 eating a la carte (one pregnant, one vegetarian and gluten free), we covered most of the menu. I think everyone thought every dish at least very good and often delicious. (I had IPA cured trout, lamb saddle with fava beans and spring greens with smoked garlic yogurt, then chocolate mousse with coffee cake: all excellent). The portions are small. We are talking nouvelle cuisine, art on plates. The wine list is unusual and expensive. Our party included two winos, who knew the trade price of these less usual wines. Very good producers, but significantly marked up (unless bought badly!) That said, the sommelier was excellent - passionate and knew his stuff - introducing us to a rare Pineau D'Aunis. He also danced around the table, often singing, which was understandable given the volume of the music. Craft is a cool space, it has a cocktail bar on the floor above with glass walls overlooking the 02. But even the restaurant feels like a night club, with its bold blues, glass, slate and metal. So was this a foodie experience in an unusual space, or my best ever meal in a night club?

Fabulous food, the staff were all very knowledgeable and the selection of drinks were also very good.

The menus are local and seasonal and packed full of flavour and texture.

Love this place - amazing decor with Tom Dixon written all over it. Had the tasting menu - well priced with decent wine pairing. Their mocktail were good too. Food were generally excellent - but could be further developed (e.g. the amuse bouche were a bit simple; dessert was basically a giant meringue which was nice but too sweet). Would definitely come back again though - it is one of the few fine dining restaurants around Greenwich / newham area

Really enjoyed our dinner at Craft. Have been meaning to go for a while and the snacks and mains we ordered were very good. The wine list and service was good as well. Only unusual thing was how quiet the restaurant was on a Wednesday night.

We enjoyed our meal immensely, we arrived after a concert and were the last seating but were treated as though we were an early reservation. Recommendations were good, food and wine were both exceptional. Service was excellent. We all said we look forward to going back.
