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.

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.

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?

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

I booked a pre event meal at Craft for eight the service was very good the meals very British traditional with a twist, tandoori pigeon for example, grouse, venison and beef being examples the meat selection, whilst not a veggie I would suggest this is s good place for veggies to eat.

The eight of us we generally agreed an unusual selection that we will give another go!

Second visit, this time on a Friday. We had a cocktail in the upstairs bar - which was supposed to be on the house but appeared on the bill and was with apologies removed at our request. The restaurant was extremely quiet for a Friday night. We took the short market menu (£35 each). The mise en bouche was exquisite and the starter of chicken liver parfait very good, beautifully presented and made with skill and some original touches in the accompanying garnishes. I took the vegetarian option and did not much enjoy the gloopy porridge of oatmeal and various small pieces of vegetable - the amount of food presented was very small indeed (the waiter had twice suggested that we might want to order some side dishes, not included in the menu but we declined). My partner had a steak which was a bit on the chewy side though the flavour was good, the Jerusalem artichokes were interestingly burnt. The pudding was disappointing (soggy carrot cake with a scoop of ice cream might describe it).
I took the suggested wines (£30). A glass of mead said to have been made with honey from their hives was an unexpected rince bouche. I had a small glass of Austrian eiswein which was phenomenal but proved difficult to follow with a less small glass of Pinot Grigio and then a sweet wine supposed to be akin to vin jaune, but nothing like it and very sweet almost syrupy.

I found Craft London on one of Open Table's offers and booked a table intending to have the set menu special. Upon reading reviews, it was compelled to pre-book the clay baked duck which has a notice period of 3 days. It was sensational and the definite highlight of the meal, from the presentation to the perfectly cooked meat. The other dishes were also good especially the purple broccoli with bacon. Service was great and al in all, an excellent afternoon was enjoyed by all.
