Wilder utilises the flavours from natural and considered British ingredients, to create elegant dishes and a relaxed dining experience for guests. The drinks list, wines and decor are all reflective of the restaurant's ethos of natural, ethical and delicious ingredients treated with respect, and crafted with care. The a la carte, snack and sharing menus all showcase Richard's creativity and vision, with a focus on sustainability and seasonality. The restaurant environment is warm and welcoming with tactile and natural textures, custom ash furniture and hand-made ceramics. Service is knowledgeable, passionate and professional from a team who genuinely love food and drink.

Sommelier and the wines she recommended were amazing, the food was really good too - although was the pheasant really a pheasant...? - and love the space

Service and ambiance were fantastic, as was the incredible food (though portion size was on the small side) and the wine list was evidently carefully curated as well.

We had a beautiful evening catching up with friends at Wilder. The soace, food and wine were beautifully curated. Excellent cocktails before dinner. Excellent wine choices and small plates of clean clever but unpretentious food. What made it extra special, was the superb team who bought it all together - professional, warm, joyous. Thoroughly recommend it.

The space is well designed and chic, the visibility of the kitchen is fun without intruding on what is a very calm environment.
The menu is creative and uses exciting ingredients in an unexpected way. Standout dishes were the herring and pollock. The wine list by the bottle is very good (especially the Jesi verdicchio) but by the glass is a bit more hit and miss.
The staff were friendly and helpful and knew their menu etc well.
I would definitely come back here but it would be nice to go when it was busier as it is a large space.

AMAZING FOOD, BEAUTIFUL SPACE WITH WITH WARM LOW LIGHTING, FIT FOR A ROMANTIC NIGHT OUT!
Delicious, gorgeously presented Michelin star food at reasonable prices. They have a wonderful list of wines, that will surprise you. Staff were friendly and attentive and provide good product knowledge.

Everything about Wilder is great. Really nice ambience in double height underground restaurant. Service was amazing (gave us a free glass of champagne because they couldn’t find the wine we wanted for 5 minutes - they found it a minute later).
Food was the best bit though. Favourites were the pig head, partridge, rhubarb pudding and Jerusalem artichoke chocolate pudding.

Will definitely be back.

We were somewhat surprised to find that we were the only diners in the restaurant, there was therefore a very high staff to diner ratio! The menu was interesting and made you want to try differing items, all of what was served was excellent, the attention to detail was impressive. The location is slightly quirky in that it is a basement, but the use of the space is well done and preservation of some beautiful brickwork is easily enough to offset any concerns, We both would like to visit again and hope that the restaurant manages to attract more diners as it is very good. Thank you.

Amazing food, compliments to the chef!
Service a little bit too pushy as way too many times asking how is everything. The atmosphere is elegant but Loud Bob Marley music didn’t work well with all ambience.
All the dishes were outstanding!!!
As they just opened I am sure everything else will be polished in some time.

Chef Richard has a wholesome generous yet delicate approach on his cooking. The menu tasting was harmoniously prepared, one of my highlight the Scallop and turnip a TRIUMPH , the staff and the atmosphere encompassing with the food has made this evening unforgettable. I'm a 3 Michelin star trained chef and have seen and eaten good food but Richard he is well up there
His tasting menu blowed me away . A chef to follow, book now before it get harder to have a table . Good table a citron-Vert.co.uk

Do not be misled by the slightly dubious doorway that leads down some ver functional stairs, when you arrive at the Lowe basement this venue is exquisitely designed with a very comforting atmosphere. The service was impeccable too, the waiting staff were very well informed and genuinely interested in speaking to us. The food was impeccable, a little challenging but in a good way, venison tartare something new to me was really delicious but a surprise as it was only listed as venison on the starter menu. The snack of carrot purée and bread cracker was stunningly delicious for something so simple and my partridge main was fantastic too. We finished our meal with an ‘Old fashioned’ which, according to my husband who has tasted many Old Fashioneds, was excellent. We will definitely be back with friends.

Though the place is a bit hidden from outside, once you arrive the team let you feel very welcome and waited. The venue is elegant even though simple. The menu is original yet you can find the perfect combination for your night’s desire. Starter and desert were my highlight (I had the poached duck egg and the the spiralled apple!) A good wine proposition (missing the advice Expert that night but we found our matching wine). Difficult to joke about English kitchen after this experience. Thank you !

a new gem in the neighbourhood. great décor, ambiance. delicious, 'wholesome' food i'd call it - innovative but not over the top - the halibut is a must try. the bar is unparalleled, some of the best cocktails i've had anywhere - perilla leaf-infused pisco sour is where it's at. the entire team knows what they're doing.

Although initially quite tricky to find, one you are inside, the bar & restaurant area is a very pleasing space to be in. Very friendly, talkative, helpful and polite staff will talk you through the menu and/or the wine list, if desired. As three friends who enjoy checking out new restaurants in London, we shared everything - the staff were very accommodating - providing additional plates and cutlery, as well as keeping the wine flowing. Genuinely delicious food and some incredibly interesting wines available. Spacious and very comfortable - not something one can say about many fashionable London restaurants!!

The flavours were stunning - every ingredient felt like it was there for a reason. The sommelier did a fantastic job of matching the wine to the food. The staff were lovely. And it was great to be able to see the kitchen at work - they felt like they were part of the restaurant, not hidden behind a closed door. Stand out dishes included the bread cracker with carrot, the halibut with cockles and black cabbage, and the pudding was gorgeous - Beremeal, goats milk, mugwort caramel. Delicious.
