* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Perfectly executed classics with a gentle twist” and other small plates with “delicious and inventive combinations” have won foodie renown for this approachable (if “rather cramped”) three-year-old: a re-working (and not just of the name) of the same team’s original Hackney outfit, Ellory (RIP), occupying a quirky triangular site. Our reporters are a little more circumspect, and unimpressed that the venue sometimes seems to attract “the Michelin-star-chasing crowd... not what you’d want in a neighbourhood Shoreditch restaurant”.

The team from Hackney hit Ellory (RIP) have shaken up the letters in its name in order to baptise this new venture (drawn, according to urban legend, by Shoreditch rents which are now cheaper than in so-very-now E8). Occupying slightly offbeat, triangular-shaped premises opposite Oklava, “the focus is on wine and accompanying small plates” as well as some more substantial fare. Early reports are positive, praising “fab food and knowledgeable staff”, but – noting that “it’s not sure if it’s a restaurant or a wine bar” – fall short of the gushing rapture it’s inspired amongst nearly all newspaper critics.

For 30 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).
