    Wonderful restaurant, even better the second time around. While we're really sad it's closing we can't wait to find out what Lee Wescott is up to next. Whatever it is, we'll definitely be taking a look. As well as the food, the service at the Typing Room was impeccable, unpretentious and added to an already exceptional meal.

    The five course tasting menu was so delicious . One of the snacks was cod skin, I was so impressed because it tasted just like cracking but no meat ! The other stars of the show were the scallop and the cauliflower . Such a shame that it’s closing down , but so glad I got to try it before it did

    Couple of fantastic courses but a few misses as well unfortunately including an odd desert matched with a cider. Expected more especially for the price. On arrival we were told our table wasn’t ready despite the restaurant being over half empty, would have been ok if we hadn’t been told to have a drink in the bar which smelled like a chip shop and the wine glasses were dirty.

    Typing Room never disappoints. An early evening sitting for the tasting menu and accompanying wine pairings. The nature of the space encourages quiet conversation and the atmosphere seems deliberately a little subdued, but this is by no means a criticism; if you want a bustling bistro-style meal, go to Galvin La Chapelle. The food at Typing Room is invariably an excellent and thought-provoking journey through seasonal dishes, served well. The wine choices were appropriate and well-timed. My main beef with the place is the sad fact that it's closing in the next few weeks. It will no doubt be sorely missed. Whilst the centre of gravity of gastronomic London is moving east, it is an anachronism that Typing Room has chosen to close. So thanks for the memories, Typing Room. I look forward to the next instalment.

    Our second trip to the Typing Room having first dined there in May 2016. The food lived up to memories of the first visit and high expectations. Delicious and beautifully presented. Service is attentive but subtle/ in the background and the atmosphere relaxed and warm. Every course was excellent; only disappointment was that many of the courses on the tasting menu were the same. Also there were a few more ‘extras’ back in 2016 (additional snacks, chocolates etc.); though worth mentioning the price has remained the same and I think represents very good value for money.

    Such a shame that the Typing Room is closing. Lee Westcott and his team produce absolutely fabulous food - definitely worthy of a Michelin star - cannot fathom why Lee and his team have been overlooked. Every course (we had the 5 course tasting menu) was executed to an excellent standard, absolutely delicious. Service also excellent as was the Somelier. Relaxed and not stuffy. Highly recommended but get there before the end of June!

    Worth travelling away from the West End and City for this gem of a restaurant. We had the five course set menu - some amazing flavour combinations, fun and attentive service that was both personable and knowledgeable, and a sommelier who knew his wines. Why should you go? - value for money: under priced relative to similar options in traditional areas - a really interesting building if you are in to restaurant environments that are a little bit different - Bethnal Green isn't that scary: be cool

    Our experience at the Typing Room for a special occasion was memorable for all the right reasons. Exquisite food (marmite butter, scallops and duck were our favourites) and faultless service meant it was one the best meals we have ever had. I can’t wait to return.

    Lee Westcott's Typing Room is a high end dining experience aimed at the adventuresome foodie who is willing to try something new. The ingredients and dishes are very fresh and often very unique and imaginative. No burgers here! They offer a 3 and 5 course tasting menu which rotates every week or so. The service is top notch. I had a 3 course dinner with an assortment of snacks intermingled between the 3 courses. The first snack was a crispy fried cod skin with oyster and paprika. the second was pig's cheek served with a smoked apple puree. The first course starter was raw scallops served with Jerusalem artichoke , apple and monk's beard. This dish was very tasty but the apple flav or was just a bit overpowering. The Aylesbury duck was served with rhubarb, beet root and juniper and was fantastic. The final course, blood orange , pumpkin brulee and ginger cake was delicious, especially the ginger cake. I really enjoyed the R&B music from the 60's that was played tastefully and unobtrusively on the sound system. The service by Alex and Florent was superb. Both were well informed and very attentive without being interruptive. In short, this was an excellent dining experience. I recommend it if you want to try something different!
