Situated just off Clerkenwell Green, on a south-west facing corner, the site boasts a ground floor pub and first floor dining room, both of which benefit from maximum sunlight with its ceiling-high windows.
The English Bistro style menu has a selection of British classics and European favourites, all designed to bring people round the table and enjoy the occasion. Working closely with the seasons, our chefs are constantly trying to source great products and show them in the way they can shine best, whilst being sympathetic to their region of origin.
The pub offers a changing selection of cask ales and draft beers from local breweries and a carefully selected list of 35 low-intervention wines. The team selects small producers whose ethos is in line with our own of simple genuine quality and who we are proud to support.
Excellent food and wine. Great service, very friendly atmosphere. Not too formal but food was way above average for a pub! Really nice decor and good vibe in general! Would definitely recommend.
Went for Sunday Lunch, very disappointed. Chicken was not cooked and the beef in the beef wellington was very tough.
Classic Sunday roast; we had beef Wellington and pork belly, and both were perfect. Accompanied by roasted veggies, potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and a decent wine. Fun place, mostly 30-somethings ( our youngest kid's age, so fine for the mature set, too).
Great ambiance and staff were attentive and personable ,
We went for a Sunday roast - not much choice on the menu . The roast beef wellington was very tasty but not enough ( only one slice per person )
Lovely atmosphere and food. Great location. Friendly service.
We didn't actually get to take up our reservation. We were called 2 hours before dinner to say the restaurant had no power in the kitchen. Most disappointing and rather late to rebook another restaurant of choice
Best roast I have had in London! So hard to find a place that feels so homely and having such high quality. Couldn’t recommend more
We booked Sunday lunch as it was convenient for something else we were doing in the area. The dining room was spacious, nice and quiet and cosy. The staff were lovely and the location was handy for lots of other things too. Wine list excellent and well-priced. But where was my beef Wellington?? The plate was groaning with great veg, but I was served a single small slice of a scant few millimetres of beef and my partner had a sole meagre slice of roast lamb. I get the ‘more veg less meat’ thing, and the meat was lovely; but my roast cost £20, so it felt really overpriced. And there was only one pud on. I’d like to go again when the full menu is on to see how it compares.
Really enjoyable lunch with the in-laws, delicious drinks and relaxed atmosphere. We’re def going back, the food was delicious, we shared tasting plates and couldn’t fault them.
Went for a Sunday roast with friends. Booked but didn’t need to as lots of tables (apparently roast dinners are less popular in summer) but I imagine it’s best to book in winter months. Sat outside on a picnic bench in the sun and were quickly seen to by staff. Food was lovely, well cooked and seasoned, all with a home cooked vibe which is just what we were looking for. Vegetarian roast was a beetroot wellington, was a bit too salty for my taste and a lot bigger than I’d anticipated/needed, although I’d rather too much than not enough. Personally not my favourite vegetarian option but a welcome change from bog standard nut roast. Only real hiccup was that my vegetarian roast got mistook for the beef wellington, they quickly rectified and kindly took my drink off the bill to apologise for the error! Staff were really nice, attentive and friendly, seemed like nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend to friends in future!
Great professional staff, delicious rabbit!
It's a small place but nicely spread out. A really interesting menu, well cooked.
Menu too limited, items not available at 9.30pm. Food pretentious & uninspiring. Poor.
Very average, slightly over priced food. Nice setting, but i would go over the road to the Eagle for better pub food and more of an atmosphere.
This was my second time eating at The Green and was not disappointed. The menu is not massive so not overwhelming. The food is innovative and really delicious. The service was very good and attentive. We were made to feel quite comfortable and the entire dining experience was enjoyable. I will certainly go again.
Lovely food and an excellent wine selection! Took a bit of time initially to be welcomed, and we were a bit confused, but then everything went well.
Hesvy menu. Not enough salad or vegetarian options. Who wants mutton on a warm spring day?
Best Sunday lunch I've every had! The porchetta was amazing.
Almost criminal, my fiance is in tears! Booked the upstairs for our engagement party, only to then be threatened later on to pay an extra 625 pounds or they would cancel. Avoid
Fab beef wellington for Sunday lunch!
Delicious Sunday lunch of the Green's famous beef Wellington and all the trimmings plus a wonderful malt chocolate tart with amazingly thin, crusp pastry. Nice atmosphere and only slightly let down by some very nice but a little inattentive staff. Recommended.
Perfectly serviceable Sunday lunch but not as good as sister pub Culpeper.
This is not my first visit to The Green, and I am glad to continue returning. The pull, on this occasion, was the beef Wellington served as one of their Sunday roasts - a rarity to find. I was not fully persuaded by the garlic thyme butter that came with the (delicious, crispy) sourdough as it felt a bit like eating a mushroom, without the mushroom - I think they might want to steal the sister Culpeper's anchovy butter, which packs greater salt and flavour. But the whole lunch was delicious: crispy, fluffy potatoes that leave you wanting more, beautifully char-grilled carrots that take any boring roundness out of the root to leave it infused with crunchy smokiness, and buttery threads of seasonal greens all surrounding the actual showstopper, a medium-cooked slab of been Wellington where medium still manages to retain juices and tenderness - a lovely lunch.
Lunch ended with a blood orange posset - delicious, but way too big even for two people - there is only so much cream you can spoon into your mouth without tiring of it. But this has nothing to do with flavour of texture - both fantastic - just with the quantity of rich goodness.
Wonderful place for a Sunday roast!
Excellent quality food in a relaxed pub setting.
Visited for a fairly early Saturday lunch and couldn't fault any aspect of the experience. Food was first class - melting lamb sweetbreads, succulent braised lamb and an interesting rhubarb nut crumble - and every element of the dishes was cooked perfectly.
Well-curated but manageable wine list along with a good range of cask and craft beers.
Service was flawless from start to finish - friendly, approachable and just what you want from that kind of setting.
Based on the reviews I thought it would be good but I was genuinely surprised at how wonderful the entire experience was. Highly recommended!
Lovely Sunday roast, highly recommend the beef wellington, great place to get together with friends for a catch up over the weekend!
Always loved this pub in the evenings after work. Now I've visited for Sunday lunch and look forward to having more meals there
Really nice Sunday meal - just wish there were a few more options. Our waitor was really helpful, had lovely beer and wine and all in all, a lovely experience
Christmas set menu lunch here for my team. A menu that was ultra easy for them to prepare,less easy on our pocket and sadly rather forgettable.
We discovered The Green when I was working in the area and although now I moved I like to go back to the old Green, good food, great ambiance, I will go there forever
The service was great and the bar area was lively and fun. The ambiance is also light and pleasant. Sadly the food left a lot to be desired - the menu wasn’t diverse or thought out (no vegan options / all fish and red meat). The lamb dish was flavourless and oily, with beautiful presentation but sadly very poorly seasoned. The fish arrived bloody and veiny, something I’ve never seen before in my life - this we had to send back. If the menu were to get an overhaul, this would be a lovely spot for dinner and a drink after.
The food was just ok, trying to be a high end gastro pub but not really delivering.
I hear great things about this pub which is why I booked for my 5 mates. The food is good, but we had very undercooked beef wellington with not much veg for 6 people and also a very overcooked / burnt frangipani tart which was a shame as I'm sure its better. Maybe just an off day? I didnt say anything to the manager due to being out with friends and not wanting to ruin the atmosphere. Complaining isnt cool. You just want great food right... The pub is lovely and wonderful light and atmosphere. I eat out alot with friends / family so will try again maybe one day
Incredible meal - it's so rare to find a pub with such high quality food, and such a brilliantly designed menu. This is proper high end restaurant quality stuff, but in a relaxed, friendly, local pub setting. It's pretty much perfect.
Wonderful beef wellington and good puds.
Only criticism would be that the service was distracted and seemed to expect that it is the customer's responsibility to catch their eye in order to ask for something rather than their responsibility to be vigilant to the needs of their customers.
A minor gripe but hopefully useful feedback.
Limited choice of main courses due to a heavy lunch service, so some of the group had to be a bit 'inventive' with their food choices - some having a couple of starters instead of a main. Not a bad evening at the Green, but was expecting better.
We love this pub when we first visited. The roast lamb was so tasty. Anchovy butter with homemade bread is a perfect match too. Unfortunately, when we visited again last weekend. The signature beef Wellington did not lift up the high expectations. The vegetables are overcooked as well.
I booked for my wife for her lunch in London. It was her first time to visit Green restaurant. She said that staff was really welcome and kindly. And Tiramisu super delicious!
Great food but service was lacking.
Still the best Sunday roast around!
