Summary

“Beyond amazing!!!!” Isaac McHale’s “playful” and “exquisitely crafted” cuisine provides one of London’s best trendy gastronomic experiences. Despite the hipster street cred of this “slightly sparse and echoey” chamber inside Shoreditch’s fine old town hall, staff are “attentive and not overbearing”, but the “pay-in-advance policy” can seem “irritating”.

Summary

“Deserving its many awards” – this groovy pop-up-turned-permanent in Shoreditch’s fine old town hall wins kudos for its “incredibly interesting” cuisine, “perfectly matched” wines and “casual” approach. The setting can seem “Spartan” though, service is a little “earnest” and to some diners “the new ticketing system for reservations smacks of hubris”.

Summary

“All the hype is worth it!”, say fans of this “foodie hipster heaven” – a “highly professional” pop-up-turned-permanent, in Shoreditch’s “beautiful” (“if noisy”) old town hall; the “eclectic” menu “may look bizarre, but it works splendidly”, though portions are rather “small”.

Summary

“Stunning” food (“a real adventure for the senses!”) twinned with “really knowledgeable” service has made an instant hit of the former Ten Bells pop-up, now translated to an “exciting and buzzing” setting in Shoreditch’s erstwhile town hall – “definitely worth the hype”.

"Best meal of the year by a long way - surprising, tasty, fun, intriguing - and although a set menu the quantities paced just right and including lots of veg - you really couldn't fault it."
