Picturesque restaurant with traditional-style food and service. Wide choice of starters, mains and desserts. Good service too.

I had lunch here a couple of times in October. The restaurant is quite large but is set out in a way that makes it feel comfortable. The service is friendly and efficient. I had their fish and chips with mushy peas the first visit and their hamburger on the second visit. The food was very good on both days.... More

Had a delicious, well cooked meal here on Saturday. Great, fresh oysters to start. Followed by a lovely pork chop with wild mushrooms. The style is friendly, relaxed and welcoming. Our food was cooked really well and I would happily return here.

31 of us ate here for our staff Christmas and long service celebration last week in the Rivington's semi-private function area and had an awesome evening. In the run-up to the event, Luis was super helpful in arranging the menu, wine and table plan - which didn't fluster him one bit when we unfortunately kept changing it! And on the... More

Although it was early and the restaurant was quiet, the reception was warm and friendly and the food was exceptionally good. You could take anybody here and impress them: boss, girlfriend, children. Really enjoyed it. And I forgot my glasses and they ran down the road after me to return them!

There was just a few parties on this monday, but I can imagine the place so much crowdy and noisy on days eve. We had a good lunch. Simple hamburgers, good and tasty, with a nice and thick piece of meet cooked as expected. A little effort could be made for the fries that had a taste of cooking oil.

Long time return visit to Shoreditch. Service always ALWAYS seems so personal in this place and food is one of the best in the area. This place keeps going up and up whilst others in the area struggle to follow in its footsteps.

Hugely enjoyable dinner on a Saturday night. Professional welcoming staff. Fresh quality food, full of flavour. It was quite busy so try and avoid a table too close to the next - otherwise you'll be knocked every time someone needs to pass - we sat next to the window at the back of the restaurant and were fine.

Thank Bernard T

Neighbourhood Profile
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbour can result in fascinating outcomes.
