temper is a unique BBQ and open fire pit restaurant with a huge New World wine list and cocktail bar. We cook everything in front of your eyes using only wood and charcoal in huge 4.5m long fire pit in the middle of the room.

We only use the best produce available and source our meat from local farms and butcher it all ourselves in house.

We serve this alongside cornish fish and seafood on corn tortillas and flat breads we made in house.

Each week we have ‘Sunday sharing specials’ for the table, alongside our individual roasts. Have a look at our menus here or keep up to date with our social media for details each week.

We have 180 seats which you can book but we always reserve room for walk-ins.

Service was ok. Waiters a bit confused. The dessert that keeps be returning to this place, as it was my favorite dessert in London, was not good this time. It’s the deep dish brigadeiro cookie

From start to finish, a dining experience i enjoyed. Would highly recommend. Staff attentive, look you in the eye, care about the service, know the menu. Food was delicious, quirky. Loved the fact it was sourced ethically and locally.

We went on a Saturday night, service was poor (took ten minutes to find out who our waiter was who ended up being totally clueless, drinks took ages and came wrong) menu very average. When we tried to order the fresh steak cuts they had all sold out by 8.30pm. I get when the animal is gone it’s gone, but this is a Saturday night. Perhaps get two animals? Or perhaps not wait half an hour before we order? We had two rounds of drinks and didn’t end up ordering food. Complained to the manager who took the service charge off but still charged for the drinks. Walked out to go to the Ivy across the street and had a fantastic meal. My first visit to temper was 6/10 and hoped the second time was an improvement. Sadly it wasn’t and it confirmed this as an average place with average food and average customer service. 2/10.

Overrated place, overrated food!
Expensive for what is served. The house wine is a no!
The music was too loud. Impossible for a conversation. Bad overall experience.
Not going back.

Disappointed following all the great reviews and hype.
Food - Jamie Oliver school of cooking where everything is doused in the same sauce, lots of raw onions and chili. It made the dishes basically taste identical. The meat is AMAZING but totally ruined by this approach
Service - We were there pre-rush where the restaurant was half empty and there were many many waiters wandering around. It still took them 15 mins to take orders, 30 mins between starters and mains and an abrupt waiter

We did not realize the menu was so limited. All the meats are served on flatbreads. The food and service were good, but it was a noisy place. We weren’t in the mood for a lot of hustle and bustle and might otherwise have enjoyed it more.

Enjoyed the food but disappointed that the menu was a tapas menu. Price seemed it was fitting for a meal for one person but once arrived it was small. Cocktails were overpriced, sadly to say.

The ambience was excellent.

Great date night with the other half, everything was on point from the service to the eclectic music choice! Definitely recommend the American cheese burger taco and the cookie at the end was amazing!

Only feed back, more Irun Bru in your Irun bru cocktail, we could taste it at all. And pleaseeeeee warn people of the anchovies in the lamb flat bread dish.

Our meal was very good although not as much as we expected, perhaps the hype set our expectations too high? The highlight of the meal was dessert.

Went here for the first time a few Friday's ago and was knocked out by the food and experience.
This time ( I say with a very heavy heart) that it wasn't as good. The cheeseburgers were undercooked( almost rare), The lamb shoulder was dry and over cooked. The 500g Rib eye was very very fatty.
Service was good but not exceptional. One thing that was excellent was the music...the play list for a Monday night was great.

Service took quite a long time to get food and get our order in.

Portions not massive when they arrived and we were only given 2 potato dishes between 3. This wasn’t explained when we ordered so felt like we were short changed.

Most annoyingly, we ordered what we thought were £30 bottles of wine, only to discover that the price shown was for 500ml. Received a bill for £46 bottles of wine. Told the waiter that we didn’t realize this was the case and weren’t offered any solution.

Average roast. Vegetables were good but the roast meat just wasn’t that great. Better places to go.

Wine good. Service average. Definitely look elsewhere for a Sunday roast.

Had a great evening for my boyfriends birthday. Sat on the bar and got to watch all the action around the grill. Highlights included the lamb chops, steak with kimchi hollandaise and the burger tacos. They also brought out an extra (and free) delicious cookie dough dessert with a candle as a surprise at the end. Couldn’t recommend it more.

Following the birth of our son this year big nights out have become rare. However 6 years married we called in the enforcement and booked Temper. From the minute we walked in (10 minutes late sorry) no fuss shown table and greeted with smiles by everyone. Knowledgeable, friendly, engaging staff who all seem to love their jobs. Food was unreal, wine was amazing and even when our table was needed they politely moved us to the bar seating to finish our wine whilst watching the wizards in the kitchen. I haven't stopped promoting it at work and will definitely be returning (temper got any staff they can look after a 4 month old??)
