“Living up to its name” – Jason Atherton’s Soho ‘Social’ provides “one of the most enjoyable dining experiences” in town, with its “rare combination” of “exceptional value” dishes (“such modern, interesting yet ‘familiar’ food, focussed on flavour and pure pleasure”) delivered by “really attentive yet un-pushy staff” in “a casual and buzzy setting”.

Summary

“A favourite of the Atherton empire” for many reporters – this “trendy yet superb” Soho two-year-old offers “memorable” cuisine, plus “delightful” cocktails and wines; it has a “lovely loungey vibe” too (but can get “overwhelmingly loud”). Top Tip – “excellent value set lunch”.

Summary

“An excellent addition to Atherton’s empire” – thanks to its “big and gutsy” dishes, Jason A’s “no-frills” Soho yearling has shone ever brighter since its debut; don’t miss some “pretty amazing cocktails” in the upstairs “speakeasy”.

"Excellent food - but confused as whether it is a relaxed local or a top notch restaurant - great clientele, pub setting, bare tables, proper restaurant food and prices. This style will pass quickly"
