Clapton’s in-the-know wine shop and communal dining spot, P Franco, which serves up “wonderful, innovative food” opened a fully fledged restaurant on the former site of Ellory in Hackney’s Neil House, in May 2018. William Gleave, whose CV includes 40 Maltby Street and Brawn, heads up the kitchen. The wine, from the people behind Noble Fine Liquor on Broadway Market, is not your standard plonk, either. The Clapton original continues as usual with its rotating roster of chefs.
Harden's survey result
“Beautiful food, with elegance and full, intense flavours” from a menu of “simple, high-quality dishes”, backed up by a list of “natural wines from top importers” – all served in a “laid back”, semi-industrial space (formerly Ellory, RIP) – wins adulation for this yearling in London Fields, from the team behind fooderati fave-rave P Franco.
Bright Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Ingredient-led small plates - tasty, but maybe pushing it a bit on price for the level of cooking - provide a pleasant way to while away an evening next to London Fields. A great selection of mainly natural wines though for me provides the main attraction and almost outshines the food, with passionate, friendly staff happy to give recommendations. 15/20"
"Very good neighbourhood restaurant. Food is top quality, tables a little too close together which creates the odd bump. Very relaxed atmosphere."
