The food is ok, I had pork balls, they were warm rather than hot, and fries - both were reasonable portions. The service was probably too discrete, waited a long time to be served, and we only discover that there was a brunch menu after...More

Upon entering I felt like I walked into a hipster palace in NY or East Austin. But despite the risk of pretense, it was fun and the food was very good. My wife and I shared a bottle of wine, a starter of mixed tartines,...More

Went here with friends for a nightcap after dinner and had so much fun we ended up staying for many many cocktails. Good value, great service. Excellent music. Try the espresso martini. Love the touch of having pulp romance novels in the loos.

Somewhat inattentive service - it took quite some time for them to work out what tables they had free and it took even longer attracting someone's attention to get a drinks order in. When the bill was later requested the chap who acknowledged my request...More

Visited on a lazy Saturday afternoon and had their rotary burger with bacon. The burger was middling sized, and came with a generous heaping of fries. The burger itself was good - nothing mind blowing, but good enough to warrant repeat visits. Bacon wasn't ridiculously...More

Highly recommend ordering their classic burger which comes with a special sauce. So so tasty!! I've water hugs with fresh cucumber strips are served complimentary with every meal. Nice typical diner atmosphere. Can get really busy for after work drinks.

I'm a big fan of Giant Robot, having visited numerous times. The food is solid, if not spectacular, the brunch is great and is reasonably priced. The cocktails are wonderful, as you would expect from a diner whose stablemate is Milk & Honey. The round...More

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
