Coming from the team behind Hackney's Pidgin, we call our food 'modern European' which basically means nothing and everything at the same time. Dishes aren't rooted in any particular cuisine but instead focus on great ingredients combined to make something that is above all delicious but that also contains some element of surprise - whether that's Jerusalem artichoke with a ranch butter sauce and avruga caviar, steak tartare with truffle crisps and taleggio or oysters with apple and chilli crisp.
Our wine list includes the biggest selection of wines on tap in London, as well as a small list of wines by the bottle, all from independent and independently minded producers.
Cocktails are potent and fun and include a szechuan pepper oil negroni and a kombu-infused martini.
We look forward to seeing you at Magpie soon.
Monday - Friday / 5.30pm-10.30pm

Set in trendy Heddon Street, this intimate restaurant punches above its weight for the price one pays.
The kitchen is open so you can see the chefs at work. The service is attentive and accommodating. The ambiance is low-key smart casual - perfect for a catch up between a group of friends.
Please please try the burrata, truffled celariac and roasted cabbage main. Magpie has an interesting British take on all of them.
(Note: The toilets aren't in the best condition at the moment, but that's forgiven because they do acknowledge and apologise for it.)
Really nice food, great service, great cocktails
A delightful evening at Magpie. Gorgeous staff, delicious food and a relaxed environment. We were allowed all the time we wanted to enjoy our meal (so many restaurants now rush you to finish in 1.5 hours!). I will definitely return. Thank you for a great evening Magpie team!
Excellent food and service. We had several small plates to share, and each one was interesting and tasty. I ovative yet comforting food. Amazing cocktails too!
Excellent, quite unusual food - very artistic and beautifully served. Nice friendly waitress but service slightly slow. I would definitely eat here again, the food was very good and it wasn't too noisy but yet not too quiet.
Having had the most incredible meal at sister restaurant Pidgin last summer, we were really keen to try Magpie. The central location was great and the restaurant itself had a lovely dimly lit atmosphere. Sadly the food didnt quite match up to our high expectations and we didnt feel the money we paid for it really reflected the quality or choice. Would give it a second try but not in a rush to go back.
Delicious food and smiley, friendly service. Plates aren’t huge but exceptionally tasty. A great casual yet classy date spot.
An informal modern setting, in a central location just off Regent Street. The menu is very original and we particularly enjoyed the spicy Negroni - special!
This is my second time eating at Magpie and the food is always executed flawlessly. The only thing I have to say (and this is just a personal preference) is that while the food is great, it is not memorable, which I think at the price one pays, it definitely should be.
Attentive service. Very good food. The chef takes food allergens seriously.
Such a hidden little treasure in central London with the most amazing menu! We'll be back!
A very good place to go in the centre of London, good food with a slight oriental twist, not exactly cheap but still reasonable.
Lovely evening, good food and services
Pretty average these days. Service was great and it could have been the dishes we chose but all felt a little average.
Great selection of food and wines. Comfortable feel inside and solid service. Will definitely recommend!
Nice venue but overall disappointed in the food, perhaps as I had heard really good things and it didn't match up to my expectations.
Had a great lunch here with friends. Food and service delicious. Good options on the set lunch menu. Portions generous, lovely wine list.
Lovely atmosphere, service and delicious NYE menu which was great value for money
Delicious food, great service at a reasonable price for the location
The food and cocktails were exceptional and the service was great as well. Highly recommended! I would definitely come back again.
Superb food that lets the flavours do the talking!
Great atmosphere, friendly service, reasonable prices and in the centre of London - what's not to like?!!
We asked to share every single meal and we got tiny plates for that. They weren't very convenient.
Also when I book the table I asked for something small and sweet for my friend's birthday but we didn't get anything. I don't know if that's an issue with the Opentable website or the restaurant. That's a shame.
Overall had a nice meal, which was slightly tainted by the roast chicken which was not fully cooked.
Came here with my boy friend to celebrate our anniversary. Amazing food, good service and great ambiance!
Great food, ambience and chilled out yet attentive staff
Good experience at the Magpie! We went Saturday for lunch, and were only the second busy table. Quiet restaurant with great food and service!
Lovely atmosphere and food was delicious- the steak tartar and calamari were amazing!
Have been back to Magpie twice in the space of a month because the food is so delicious and the service is great. The croquette and fried chicken starters are delicious and the mushroom risotto that I had for main this time round was perfect. Would definitely recommend and will go again!
Our lunch at Magpie was wonderful; the food was considered, seasonal and cooked beautifully whilst the service was some of the best I've ever encountered. Thank you Magpie!
A perfect place at that time of day for me eating out solo.
Magpie is the central London sister of Hackney's Pidgin. It's menu is along the same lines. Food was good. Has the feel of a neighbourhood restaurant which was great.
Well then 50 words to say it was really really good! The food was superb, we‘ll come again! *\*
Great food, lovely service and a really knowledgeable, friendly sommelier
Amazing food and service. Slightly small portions for the price, but beautiful tasting lunch. Very quiet for late lunch but sure it would be busy at other times
Delicious...creamy burrata, delicious beef. Great staff. I'll be back!
Very nice meal with good ambience and great location. Service was very good. And the cocktail I had was delicious.
Lovely meal, good service, although I think I preferred the previous incarnation with the trolley service!
What a brilliant restaurant. Delicious food, great service, beautiful atmosphere - it was like being in a movie! Have the fried chicken to start; it was delicious.. thank you!
Lovely spot! We were a group of 6 and shared a few small plates and had each a main. We were all very happy and satisfied with the food quality and quantity. The a la carte menu is not cheap but the lunch set menu is good value! The service was very friendly attentive and patient. Would want to go back!
Food ok but nothing memorable and not flavoursome
Service awful considering we were one of 4 tables in the restaurant. The waitress kept wanting to take the menu away but there was no one else she needed to give it to. She had no personality and made no effort to interact with us.
