As we are a very small restaurant, we will need your table back after 1 hour and 30 minutes at lunch and 1 hour 45 minutes in the evening, which will be ample time to enjoy what we offer. Should you require a little longer or it’s a special occasion, may we cheekily suggest Portland (!) just around the corner…

Larger Parties
Please note: for bookings of more than 8 guests, we offer a 3 course reduced menu. This is £26 at lunchtime or £45 at dinner.

Seating Types
We offer three different seating options: our tables, stools at our window counter or - weather permitting - bench seats at our larger outdoor communal tables.
Please be aware: Outdoor tables are available only if the weather permits. We may not have an alternative table available inside in some instances.

Clipstone is a new neighbourhood restaurant located on the corner of Clipstone Street in Fitzrovia.

Wonderful creative cooking - beautifully presented. Enjoyed everything immensely.
Lunch set menu excellent value.
Restaurant rather cramped and a bit on the noisy side but food more than compensates.

Nice buzz, very smiley staff, very nice food, does corkage which is a huge bonus for me. Would have liked one more meat option on the mains... but thoroughly enjoyed it and very good value.

Cheery service, interesting modern British cooking and good value. I can still remember the custard tart. A modest title for a simple but delicious confection.

Great food and service. Would recommend it. We chose a slightly odd wine but we were warned that it was different so it was our risk.

The sort of place you don’t want to tell anyone about.
A small neighbourhood style restaurant serving flavour-packed food, with exemplary service.
Can’t say enough good things about this total winner of an eatery. One of my favourite spots in the big city.

Excellent lunch, just need to vary the menu a little more. A little rushed at lunch, but the quality of the ingredients makes up for it all.

The design and ambience within this this restaurant is very nice and inviting. The menu is British New cuisine inspired. This could have been perfect but unfortunately too many details in the condiments were not; perfect fish accompanied with spinach with wood like stalks to (nice and soft) leaves, nuts (everywhere) too hard, and some signature tastes defining a condiment were not easy to detect. A bit pricy which means you should aim a bit higher.

Just terrific - set lunch is inventive and delicious, as well as being great value. Hosting two Parisians who were equally impressed and insisted on dessert.

Everything was excellent: Food and service was perfect. I would have rated 5 stars if it wasnt for the horrible napkins which left white lint marks on both my and my friend black trousers. A small detail but it was annoying.

The food here is exceptional & this is possibly my most favourite restaurant in London - however we had an unfriendly, unsmiling waiter & it clouded what should have been a happy birthday reunion for 3 women. I would think twice before returning because of this one man. It doesn’t cost anything to smile & he might even cheer up in the process!
