    Food was amazing. Beautifully presented and set my taste buds alight! The fallow deer, hot/cold oyster (oyster ice cream was SO delicious) and partridge were a few of the memorable dishes on the tater menu. Our evening was topped off with a chat with Jason Atherton at our table. Will definitely be back!

    Wonderful Lucnh, Exellent Food for Resonable Price, Amazing Tasting Menu. Seeing my Mom's reaction on food the presentation is priceless, she was impressed and amazed. This was her first Michelin experience so Thank You for making it Special and thank you for extra details for my birthday celebration. One thing we didnt like is one waiter I think he doesnt have knowledge on the Food his serving, he serve us twice or three times he just put the plate on the table then leave without saying nothing especially last dessert plate, but I understand it I came for the food we were satisfied and enjoyed it. Exellent food can make up! All in all almost perfect experience!

    We ate at Pollen Street Social for our anniversary and had the tasting menu with the classic wine pairing. Absolutely amazing. From service to food, and we even got some more dessert as a present which we just couldn't fit so they wrapped it up for us so we could bring it home. The final course the dessert was the best I have ever had I my life! Would highly recommend going here. We even got to see chef Jason Atherton in the kitchen working which was a plus.

    We had the A La Carte 4 course lunch menu which offers a great choice, amazing food and we think really good value. Even in this social distancing time, the restaurant had a great buzz about it. The staff were welcoming, with excellent menu knowledge and perfect service. Pollen Street Social is everything you would expect from a Jason Atherton restaurant, excellent food, excellent service, I can't wait to go back.

    We chose the 4 course £85 pp which was outstanding in taste, presentation and quality. Service was 1st class and not overbearing, which can sometimes overshadow the food from past fine dining experiences.

    Hadn’t been for a few years but was instantly reminded how wonderful Pollen Street Social is. The whole experience was lovely, the atmosphere is warm and chatty unlike some similar started places, and the food was incredible. Not sure which course was the best, every one was fantastic, but I can say the chocolate soufflé is most definitely worth the wait. Will be booking again soon.

    A brilliant time with excellent fresh and most tasty food On the four course a la carte menu. George the general manager was serving us and he understood our great interest in food and my writing commitment to a lifestyle magazine. We were introduced to chef/owner Jason Atherton who was helpful and Charming. This was a magnificent experience and the slightly informal happy atmosphere helped the enjoyment of my birthday lunch. Every little thing was taken care of in the menu. Perfect.

    This is the first place we've eaten out since the lifting of the second lockdown and what an experience it was. The serving staff are absolutely brilliant and the food is out of this world. I've eaten a lot of desserts in my time, but the russet apple dessert is the best of the bunch. Thank you Pollen Street Social, for lifting the gloom of this pandemic with great service and unbelievable food!

    Very pleasant evening somewhat tarnished by very slow service. Sat down at 7.30 and by 9.45 had only been served amuse bouche and starter from the tasting menu. Given curfews , the next three courses were brought up in quick succession. Waiting staff were very courteous and professional but, apart from a brief apology, offered no explanation. Food was , as ever, very good. Wine list is both extensive and expensive. Very little of quality below £80. It should be stressed we had a lovely evening celebrating my wife’s birthday, but given the size of the bill, will only consider returning on similar special occasions and would hope for more prompt service.

    Not the best of experiences and certainly not what one expects from a JA restaurant. Service was inconsistent, the last dish took a loooong time to come, no effort by staff to mitigate the wait, my turbot tasted like it had been sitting in a counter for a while, not fresh and moist as it's been before.
