James Cochran has launched again in Islington, on the site of Chinese Laundry (RIP), just months after his James Cochran N1 closed (it has been retrospectively called a pop-up). He is also no longer cooking at the EC1 restaurant that bears his name (see also). The food here is “modern British, taking inspiration from James’s Scottish and Vincentian roots” and will also feature “Asian influences”.

For 28 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

"The classic curates egg. The venison was superb and very well cooked and presented. Conversely the mackerel other than the accompanying pork crackling was tasteless. Would go back though. "
