We went for my partner’s birthday. The food was absolutely delicious and service staff lovely. One had the regular menu and one did the vegan menu. The veg options often feel like scraps or after thoughts and not a real meal when doing set menus at other restaurants but not here. This was a proper delicious meal for both of us. We each did the weekly wine pairing which was lovely. This was our first time but we will definitely be back.

Took my parents here for my mum’s 75th Birthday. She loved the experience. The menu was interesting/tasty, wine delicious, presentation thoughtful and the service friendly/diligent. Highly recommended!

Typical east London, £50-fixed-menu + wine with no particular outstanding characteristics.

We had high expectations given a number of the reviews and understood that it was a tasting menu. Significant gaps between each course in over 2+ hours spent there and the staff whilst pleasant were not particularly attentive. We thought that when we were asked if there was a special occasion that there may have been some recognition of our anniversary. Nothing at all. Overall, we felt it was very much style over substance. Alas we won’t be returning.

Food was interesting and tasted good and the place is cute and intimate, didn’t think it was nearly worth the cost and the service was a bit awkward, but probably difficult due to masks

Delightful. Amazing seasonal food, I believe the menu changes every week. Lovely service. They put a little discrete candle on my dad's dessert plate after I told them it was his birthday. Would definitely go back!

The food was good but very small portions and a bit overpriced for what it was. We liked the duck with cherries dish. We felt three sweet dishes is a bit much though, would have preferred one extra savoury dish instead. Service was okay but the bottle of wine we ordered arrived at the table already open and it looked like there was a little missing. We then got overcharged for a glass of sweet wine which was £6.50 on the menu and appeared as £8 on the bill. Also, the vintage on the wine changed from the one that appeared on the wine list but we were not told about it. When we mentioned all of this to the waiter, he did not apologize or seem surprised, he purely amended the bill.

First time Pigeons (?) for Saturday lunch! Outstanding. Service and ambiance were excellent. The menu was very well explained and we felt in safe hands. The food was just excellent. Full of serious fun and surprise- we like a bit of magic! Thanks again, and look forward to dropping in again in the near future.
