    Great place. Top notch food. The set menu for lunch is amazing
  • Sharon T.
    The pork belly is really good, but the flat iron steak was so chewy that my jaw was hurting! Service was extremely slow.
  • Horia D.
    The bartenders are usually the same from The Blind Pig, so the drinks are really well made. Come for the food!

    Relaxed and well designed atmosphere, good service and delicious foods. We tried the Festive Menu everything was absolutely perfect exactly the thing that you expect from a Michelin star restaurant.

    The food is amazing, but the service isn't. Why have 5 waiters when 1 would do the job?

    Second time here. The food is as usual palatable. Lunch set is an absolute value for money. Though the pig cheek that day was a bit heavily-sauced.

    Cocktails at the Blind Pig rivals any swanky hotel bar at half the price, and the kitchen carefully craft some of the best value Michelin starred food you'll ever eat.

    The chef's table is like watching theatre. And the food is, of course, the star. Wild mushrooms from a bag on toast doesn't sound romanticised, but it's simply fantastic stuff.

    It’s the new kid on the block in trendy Soho. It feels like a cross between a New York lounge and a London members’ club. Dill or no Dill is delicious, fresh taste of summer with elderflower and dill. Read more

    Reserve a table upstairs for pre-dinner cocktails... 'to dill or not to dill' a gin lover's must! When shown downstairs, if having the pork, no accompaniments needed... the chop was huge & yummy!

    The duck egg starter. Very nicely done. French Fries as soldiers to dunk in a runny egg. What's not to like?
