I had hoped, and whilst the experience of eating in complete darkness is unique, with a social experiment aspect, that this would be so much more. It wasn’t. Pros - seems to be a renovated / reclaimed post office and there are some great features...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
