The best piece of fish I have ever tried! Cooked to perfection. Warm, homemade bread. Everything was so delicious. The peach cobbler cocktail was also wonderful. Great service and definitely going back again soon!

Clipstone is one of those perfect restaurants that offers an unique and delicious menu, alongside an inviting and vibrant ambience. If Fitzrovia had a quintessential restaurant, Clipstone is it.

I have been to this restaurant twice in the last week. Both times sitting outside. The food is lovely without being pretentious, tasty and sized sensibly. The wine list is nicely judged. Staff is both efficient and charming.

From the moment we were warmly welcomed to the restaurant, we knew our evening at Clipstone was going to be special. Everything we drank and ate was delicious. And our server, Tom, truly added to our dining experience. Clipstone had been recommended to us by numerous friends, which is why we chose it for a birthday celebration. Our expectations going in were high and we were not disappointed. We would recommend it highly and hope to return again soon!

Every plate the two of us had (snacks, starters, mains and desserts) was wonderful. The menu changes, but on this day, I think I could have ordered anything on it and been very happy.
The outstanding dish of the day was the crab taglierini starter - ordered as a plan B because I couldn't have the non-pasteurized cheese in my first choice starter, this created some envy in my husband and quite frankly made me thankful to be pregnant for once! Would've happily devoured a main sized portion of it too.
Luckily the main dishes aren't too big or heavy, because - having started with 3 "snacks" that were more like starters in size - we thought we were going to be over-faced before dessert; luckily not, and we were able to top the perfect afternoon off with two masterpieces: sour cherry granita with condensed milk ice cream, and apricot & amaretto sorbet with yoghurt mousse.
Incredible food and attentive service. We can't wait to come back again.

Clipstone was outstanding. I have visited Portland before, their michelin star sister restaurant but I was so pleased with our decision to have a girls lunch here. The sancerre rose was delicious and my friend had a peach cobbler. We ordered several starters, mains and desserts and so I tried everything and it was all amazing. Highlights were the ravioli, the nettle arancini and all the puddings! Also the staff were amazing and so good with my friends baby. Recommend, recommend!

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner. The staff, service and setting was a delight. All three courses (and snacks) were stellar, terrific cooking, classic dishes but with a modern twist. Great wines and non alcoholic options also. We are already planning our next visit, hopefully with friends or family. A hidden gem of a restaurant
