At Story the premise is simple; we seek to tell our story through the food we serve.

We opened in April 2013 gaining our first Michelin star only five months after opening and in 2021 we were awarded our second Michelin star.

Inspired by chef Tom Sellers’ culinary career and the history of British food, our dishes are an edible story, each one inspired by a memory.
We want to share these memories with you through what you see, smell and taste.

To help achieve this, we select only the freshest seasonal British produce and then pair it with an exclusive wine list featuring small wine producers and select British craft ales sourced locally.

What an outstanding experience! My partner and me had an absolute blast at STORY. Everything was absolutely perfect; from the food to the service or even the nice playlist in the background.
We'll definitely be back!

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left Restaurant Storey delivered above and beyond. The restaurant atmosphere was professional but relaxed and unfussy. The menu was inventive, playful and above all delicious. Each of course was well balanced and executed and certainly on a par with some of the 3 star establishments i and my fellow diners have experienced. More importantly the menu seamlessly catered for the individual foibles of me and my fellow guests, even down to moderating the wine flight to accommodate one diner who doesn’t like red wine. The accompanying wine/cocktail flight itself was equal to the food and offered perfect compliment to each course. But above all this the service was certainly the best I have encountered in many years of dining in the capital and beyond. Our sommelier (who’s name, sadly I failed to catch), was both knowledgeable and engaging and our hostess, Paola absolutely wonderful; both were utterly charming which pushed an already memorable meal to even higher levels. Yes it was pricey, but I could not doubt I was in context, getting my money’s worth. I have little doubt a third star will be awarded soon. In all, an outstanding evening. Thank you Restaurant Story.

Absolutely delicious and didn’t want the courses to stop. Had an 8 course menu (had hoped for the 10 courses but said they aren’t doing it any more), and slightly disappointed that the signature candle dish wasn’t served, but an amazing meal nonetheless. Service is impeccable as well.

It’s our 4 visit and by far the best. Every element from the service down to the quality of the food just gets better and better every time.
It’s our favourite restaurant and the only one we continue to book every year.

I like the concept that you have a tasting menu that's shaped around your dietary tastes / requirements. It means you can sit back and trust the restaurant to deliver delicious food and they didn't disappoint. We also took the drinks pairing which was interesting and worked well with the food. Service was spot-on and the space is interesting and well-done.
Obviously, it's an expensive experience, but well worthwhile.

A truly outstanding experience. The ambience, service and food are all outstanding. My only comment, which is a personal preference, is I would prefer a higher ratio of savoury dishes to sweet.

Absolutely delicious tasting menu and impeccable service! The ambience was a little bit impacted by an unusual playlist which I didn't really feel complimented the overall vibe but I could not fault the staff; knowledgeable, friendly, not overbearing but also super attentive.
Definitely a special occasion restaurant, we went for our anniversary and loved it.

I cannot overstate how amazing a meal my mother and I had at Restaurant Story. We'd booked the "10 course" taster menu and went for the Classic drinks pairings option alongside. Both the food and drinks were out of this world - and the service was like nothing we've ever experienced. Every single member of staff was utterly brilliant - from the food and drink descriptions, to the occasional conversations between courses and after the meal had finished. 10 courses is under playing it - as this didn't include a whole host of "snacks" (again like you've never seen) beforehand and sweet selection after the dessert. The whole night was an unfortgettable experience, and I can't thank the chefs or staff enough. If you want a truly special restaurant experience, this is it.

Excellent food (without doubt) with exceptional service. The choice of wines and sommelier’s explanation is very enjoyable. Knowing it’s our anniversary and pre-arranged window seat for me and my wife. My first time being here and it’s one of my wife’s favorite with her being here every year. Will definitely show up again.

It is a fantastic restaurant, as expected from Michelin star the quality was exceptional throughout. In addition the warm atmosphere created by the staff, kitchen as well as service, makes the restaurant stand out compare to other fine dining that risk being a bit stiff. You could relax and just enjoy the great team deliver a great experience.
