A fabulous Saturday evening at Alyn Williams. Saturday is the tasting menu only and it's great value as well as exquisitely constructed by the brilliant young chef Tom Booton. The staff were lovely, relaxed, informative and the food was just one amazing tasting course after another. We will definitely be back.

We had such an amazing time at Alyn Williams. We went out for lunch for my wife’s birthday and the restaurant made us feel so welcome. We were served a range of dishes selected by the head chef. The food was absolutely amazing, really amazing. We even had a chance to meet Alyn Williams himself! He was a really nice guy. He showed us around the kitchen and made us feel very special. It was a fantastic experience.

An excellent evening and wonderful dishes. A nice touch with Alyn himself being there and taking the time to walk round and chat with diners. Only negative was a mix up with the bill where we were overcharged for drinks though they were very apologetic.

I choose Alyn Williams for a number of reasons since the occasion was for a first "Date". I was not disappointed and neither was my date, she loved it! Tables nicely spaced out so it was private without feeling you were on an island. Food was superb, service was fabulous, with the staff being attentive - but not overly so. They did everything to make it super special, including meeting with Alyn Williams himself. My date who is a chef herself, said to me he won't be in on a Saturday afternoon - she had to take her words back after she met him. It was also excellent value for money!

I'd certainly go again! Thank you to Ayln and his team.

A more relaxed One Star Michelin. Exceptional value as the cooking is really top drawer and this from someone who frequents the UKs starred restaurants. The set lunch on Saturday @ £40 a head + 12.5% (of course..) is possibly the best value lunch in London at the moment.

Fantastic lunch on my Wifes Birthday.

We enjoyed the bespoke tasting menu and asked the excellent Sommelier Constantinos to do us a wine pairing with each course.

A great experience and the attentive staff made the afternoon very special

Alyn came out of the kitchen and spoke to every table in the room towards the end of the lunch and was very welcoming

Looking forward to our next visit

Generally good value for money we went for the 5-course tasting menu. We were there last year the food was more impressive than today tho. Was hoping to meet the chef in person but again didn’t get it. Like the decor still, and the ambience, very calming and relaxed.

For the price, pretty mediocre food. Excellent wine pairings - the best part of the meal. Service was ok, what one would expect. Horrible music playing the entire time. Felt like we were in an elevator on our way to the dentist... Bottom line: for the price tag, we will never ever be going there again.

A very nice place for food and great ambience. The only thing that was a let down was the pace of the food as it was very slow and I had to tell the waiter to speed up the pace. Also the food could have been better if the portions were not too big as we got full towards the last few dishes.

Absolutely fantastic lunch on Saturday at Alyn Williams. We ate from the set Saturday lunch menu at £40 a head. The food was beautiful, the staff were attentive but not overly so, and we had a very relaxed lunch.

Best of all was the way they handled the food allergy in our group - no fuss, well informed staff and alternatives served by the kitchen.

Another outstanding dining experience at Alyn Williams. All courses expertly executed with a tremendous lightness of touch. Wonderful presentation equally matched by the quality and combination of ingredients. This restaurant never fails to impress on all levels from the moment you arrive and remains on our 'go-to' list for consistency and value despite the huge variety of London restaurants. Young Tom is rocking the kitchen!

Our second visit did not disappoint. Delicious food, beautifully presented, including a first experience of muntjac. Good recommendation by the sommelier for a bottle of red to accompany first courses of beetroot followed by the muntjac and the halibut. Outstanding desserts. Impeccable service, ending with a visit to the kitchen and a chat with Alyn Williams himself.

Elegant and cosy place, very calm perfect for a romantic dinner. Service is far above than expected and still friendly. 
We had the tasting menu and each dish was a wonderful surprise for eyes and taste. Every employee is very attentionate and each dish is fully explained, which enhance the pleasure. 
In order to fully enjoy your dinner, consider at least 3 hours time. 
We definitely recommend this one star Michelin restaurant.

Absolutely outstanding in every way! We were superbly looked after by all the staff who were really knowledgeable about all the food and beers. So hard to pick a favourite moment - the tiny pickled mushrooms, nori cracker amuse bouche, lobster bisque, walnut and smoked eel, zingy granita....we loved it. Thank you for making a truly special birthday!

We went for a family Saturday lunch and chose the £40.00 set lunch menu as all the choices appealed to us.
We weren't disappointed all the courses were delicious.
As a non drinker my only complaint is that there were no options other than mocktails of soft drinks. Please all restaurants there is a great range of non alcoholic beer and wine available now and Seedlip is a great alternative to gin. As past keen wine drinker I understand that non alcoholic wines do not compare but they are palatable and so much better than sweet fizzy drinks or drinking water with your food.
