  • Good for special occasions
  • Charming
  • Great for fine wines
Michelin-trained chef Edward Boarland along with business partner Dee Reid have launched a new concept restaurant, wine bar and florist at 12 Bow Lane in London, called Stem and Stem.

The concept of Stem + Stem champions British produce, both in the kitchen and the
florist, where possible sourcing as many local ingredients and products from South
East Farmers who advocate sustainability so they can bring the best product to the
table for their guests.

Guests should expect a dynamic menu at Stem + Stem, which changes more than
seasonally. Ed often seeks inspiration from everyday life transporting this straight to
the kitchen with new menu additions every few weeks.

    A lovely little restaurant, we had a great seat next to the window which was artfully decorated with beautiful orchids. Our lunch was delicious, the Cornish cod was cooked to perfection. Service was spot on, professional, friendly but not intrusive. Would definitely recommend.

    Great atmosphere, attentive waiter, & uniquely tasty food. Loved the croquette & aubergine starters, the stuffed Guinea fowl, treacle tart & Eton Mess. Our Waiter was at our beck & call & so attentive. Thanks. Grand Chef gets full marks for the creations & for coming to our table to discuss the food. A lovely touch. Good luck

    Love this addition to Bow Lane and indeed choices of where to eat/drink in EC2. Have had wine at the bar here before but this was the first time eating. A leisurely Friday lunchtime with an old friend, and we decided to have the majority of the snacks and small plates, treating it like tapas. A glass of cremant to begin and a very nice Gruner Vetliner to go with the food. Exquisitely executed and presented, with some highly imaginative flavour pairings. Relaxed ambience and genuinely lovely service. Definitely returning!

    Delicious food and great service. Personally would prefer if the tables were a bit further apart - but overall a lovely experience in a unique quiet haven amongst the hustle and bustle of the city!

    Very welcoming team. Delicious, well thought out menu and execution. Service on point without being obtrusive. Lovely space, well lit with an abundance of flowers. We had a seat in the window with sunlight and orchids, absolutely no complaints. Will return!

    Looking for a nice little wine bar stumbled across this place. The food was outstanding we shared multiple snacks so got sample a few different dishes. Stand out dishes where the mussle with squid and chilli, the cheese croquet. The owner and staff where so attentive and this place is truly a hidden gem!
