High quality ‘bistronomy’ wins praise for this communal-table and low-intervention-wine venue, set inside a 1920s car garage between Highbury and Stoke Newington. “I love the fact that the menu is small and things occasionally run out towards the end of the night” – a clear indication that the produce is fresh and not stored for long.

A 1920s former car garage provides an “unusual” setting for this Stoke Newington fringe haunt, whose “look and feel (with most people at communal tables, or on counters with stools) works well”, despite it being “crammed” and with “a high noise-level”. There’s quite a “traditional”, ‘bistronomy-style’ menu, from which everything’s “well-cooked”, and there’s an “interesting” list of wines (low intervention, naturellement).

Sharing plates and unusual wines draw a steady crowd to this “lovely” if “busy” Highbury local, where seating is at communal tables in a 1920s former car garage.

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).

"Dog friendly almost to the point of being a frightening prospect if you haven't come with one, Primeur hits a nice informal note with its table sharing, without it seeming like you're sharing your conversation with the neighbouring diners. The food is on point but they don't do coffee. At all."
