I love everything of this place. The ambience, the staff, the food. The lighting is just perfect. Anything you eat is excellent. And the wine. And in summer those benches under the olive tree. You rock guys. One of my fav places in London.

Didn’t go with high hopes - been burnt by the small plates thing before - but the food really was amazingly good. Mackerel cooked to perfection with blood orange and fennel - an unusual combination but it really worked! Mussels with black pasta (which I have never had before) and gorgeous herring. Cheese plate to die for. Down an unassuming residential street (looked like a dead end) but well worth hunting out. I’m going back - for my birthday in May.

Menu changes surprise you every time! Try things a bit outside your comfort zone, because every dish is prepared beautifully - it's all about the seafood. Yum.

We had about 10 dishes to share - some really excellent. Wines by the bottle mainly VERY expensive - but wines by the glass available at more reasonable prices.

The food here is always tasty, but some of the pricing is a bit keen. North of seven quid for a plate of carrots, no matter how tasty the dressing, is rather steep. Likewise I think the 'bustling' atmosphere and tight tables would suit a lower price bracket. Still we had fun and would consider going again.

On a busy Friday night in winter the restaurant was far too noisy for our liking - customers are packed at long tables and the noise reverberates in the cement structure of the large room.
It was also unbearably hot, with a stuffy air.
The food though was delicious, with enough choice to please most without being too much.
Our waiter was nice and efficient though a bit too keen to get us to order certain plates and reach a certain expenditure, which in the end was a bit annoying.
Their sister restaurant (Primeur) is miles nicer overall.

Very good service and setting. The food is pricey given the portion sizes. The wine list is ok but given they describe themselves as a wine bar, it should be a better. The wine list is also a bit pricey.

Great service. They did their best to accommodate for my various dietary requirements and also helped the lady decide on her wine...which was testing to say the least! Nice and quiet setting with a chilled vibe.

Perfect ambience for dates, groups, friends special catch up. Unassuming area. Hiding this fantastic open industrial yet homely vibe of a restaurant. Lighting is perfect for feeling intimate despite the open high ceiling space. Cannot recommend it highly enough. Earthy and not pretentious. Wonderful staff. And the best bit the food ! 😎👍🏽

With any luck just a slightly below-par Tuesday evening but two of fish plates featured chicken which meant not suitable for pescatarian looking forward to checking out restaurant’s reputation for fish. Not sure we needed as many plates as were encouraged to buy; still, the cava was delicious.

Dined here recently as a small family group. Restaurant wasn’t busy (weekday lunchtime) so can’t comment on service during busier times but staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Food comes as smaller sharing plates which worked well for us as we had a chance to try lots of different dishes - we all enjoyed them but as would be expected, personal tastes meant we all had different favourites!

Westerns is perfect. Wonderful food, incredible service, delicious combinations. I’m gluten and dairy free and the Westerns staff couldn’t be more helpful - putting things on the side, knowing every ingredient and nothing feels like too much trouble. Incredible homemade vermouth too !!

Wonderful, buzzing atmosphere and excellent food. Attentive, friendly and knowledgable service. The place was warm and inviting on a cold January evening. Can't stop thinking about the cuttlefish dish, so good and the rum baba! Wish this was my neighbourhood restaurant.

Food is okay, but expensive for what is on offer...it’s a great concept with the small, local menu on offer from the blackboard, but lacks precision in cooking for the price. We found our fish to be overseasoned and the mussels to be lacking in depth. Everything was okay, but it didn’t go much further than that.

All tables are shared, which makes for an intimate atmosphere that felt lacking in privacy for the price point being asked.

Certain touches are welcomed. The design of the restaurant is very contemporary, yet still homely. Equally, Westerns Laundry, tries slightly too hard to be cool. For instance, all wine is served in transparent, plain bottles, making the whole place feel more focussed on image over substance.
