This three-year-old Dalston/Haggerston gastroboozer from chef Tom Oldroyd (of Oldroyd, Islington) serves serious food in beautiful surroundings – and the mix seems to work: “where else can you have fresh oysters while watching the Euros?”. “The burger here is great – but the crab chip butty is also a must”, so “prepare to get your hands messy!”.

“A beautiful old boozer on the Dalston/Haggerston border”, restored and revamped in mid-2018 as a “cracking local gastropub”, with chef Tom Oldroyd (formerly of the Polpo group; see also Oldroyd N1). He has put a traditional French twist on its gastropub fare, helping to win an enthusiastic fanclub, with cod’s roe starter, “fab burger” and “top Sunday lunch” singled out for particular praise. “If the place looks familiar, it was previously a seafood restaurant (The Richmond) and before that a cheap ‘n’ cheerful bistro with weird classical artefacts (LMNT)... and long before that a dodgy boozer”.

Chef and restaurateur, Tom Oldroyd, follows up his diminutive debut, Oldroyd in N1, with this much larger venue near London Fields, which opened in June 2018 – a pub and dining room offering a French twist on seasonal British produce; ex-Canton Arms and Winemakers Deptford chef Rory Shannon is in charge of the open fire cooking in the semi-open kitchen. Early press reviews are a tad mixed, but overall positive.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
