LINO is a bar and all-day restaurant located in a refurbished linoleum and carpet warehouse, with Richard Falk of The Dairy heading up the kitchen, taking an innovative approach to everything from cocktails to charcuterie.

Decorated in shades of peach and salmon with green antique brass fixtures, the space takes inspiration from minimalist Finnish design.

Meanwhile, the menu is focused on low-waste dishes across an all-day menu that includes sauerkraut and Montgomery cheddar croquettes and Belted Galloway wing rib of beef, with oxtail and potato tart. Dessert will utilise left-over homemade pastries from the breakfast kiosk, to enjoy with botanically-infused tipples, cocktails with house ferments and craft spirits.

It was absolutely fine. Food and staff were good. But nothing special or innovative to a number of other options in London. If you're near it's worth a visit but not for special occasions. The venue does have a spacious lofty feel which is nice.

Located away from any main drag, the restaurant looks very cool inside. Relaxed and airy, good service and a wine list that is very reasonable and interesting. Portion sizes quite small but food excellent.

Went on a Friday night. Place was quiet despite being told they were fully booked... it’s a huge space so felt a little empty but that meant we were able to talk. Food was exceptional and wine list had some unusual wines by glass and carafe. Cocktails were good. Service was knowledgeable and friendly.

First customer on the official opening night. Beautiful place with a lovely ambience. Service was very attentive and warm.
There were moments of brilliance on the menu, like the battered oysters and a squash and artichoke lasagne to die for!
The fish dishes (mackerel and cod) do need some work as though they were objectively well cooked needed a bit more seasoning/depth of flavour.
Overall I really enjoyed my evening and would go back!
