Niche is an independent casual dining restaurant serving seasonally-inspired crowd pleasers with a modern twist. Based in Angel, our 'niche' is a 100% gluten-free menu where everything is prepared and cooked on site, making use of local suppliers and seasonal ingredients.

We are open for lunch and dinner (brunch most weekends) with our signature hand-raised pie, our own recipe sausages, alongside a selection of creative salads and our own take on British and European classic dishes.

Before booking please visit our website to view the latest menus and to read important information about your booking and table timings.

The contemporary interior is clean, bright and airy during the day and cosy and intimate at night, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows framing the hustle and bustle of London life with outside seating when the weather is being kind. Angel Tube Station is a 3-minute walk.

I would recommend to anyone who eats gluten free food. I find it lovely and very comfortable to be in a restaurant where I do not worry about eating gluten. My meat was excellent.

Niche Gluten Free Dining was nice but expensive. The prices prohibited you from choosing more exciting menu options. Niche in food but niche in price. I know it's London but felt it was prohibitive to the whole experience e.g only had a main course and desert is one of the things that you usually can't have as a coeliac. It's not that difficult to cook gluten free so not sure why it seems to be a premium. Understand restaurants can charge what they want/need to make the business viable, but this experience is more of an occasion rather than a regular haunt.

The food was really good and the restaurant is really lovely.
We had the burger with great fries and the mash potatoes and sausages.
The mains were fantastic but the deserts were even better!!
Overall we had a great time and I wouldn't be able to tell its gluten free.

Great food for gluten free diners. Concept is fantastic, it’s the food that gluten free eaters can’t have in most other mainstream restaurants

Absolutely wonderful place. One definitely needs to book in advance, even just for lunch. There was only one person serving all the tables during lunch time, but she was amazing!! So lovely, remembering about us, making sure that we are comfortable at just the right times.
Food was divine. It’s is rare that I can relax completely about what I eat due to lactose and gluten intolerance, but in here- absolutely heavily food, and no worries at all that I would have any reaction :)
Very happy with this place, highly recommend

The best gluten free dining in my gluten-free life challenge in last 6 years since been diagnosed. Very friendly staff and absolutely delicious food from starter to desserts. Struggle to decide what to have as I could have everything on the menu. We will be definitely coming back for more amazing food

Delicious Gluten-Free dining and an additional bonus by having a Low FODMAP menu as well, which is not easy to come across. Great food, great staff. Highly recommended

Although the restaurant was quiet. It was a pleasant space to be in. Waiter was great, food was fab. Not a cheap lunch, so not really an every day lunch experience, but worth it for my son to be able to have choices for all three courses. (Note to self: remember the portion size next time)

We booked Niche for my daughters 16th birthday. The management were very responsive to our dialogue prior to the meal and delivered all our requirements on the day.
The food was amazing and the service was excellent!
The venue is very good and placed well for those travelling. Highly recommend!!!!

We enjoyed the evening overall especially as I have coeliac disease. The theatre menu is limited and as my husband is non beef eating there is even more limited choice.
We were disappointed that we were offered water before we had even sat down which we had to pay £4 for - we only ever have tap water!! The meal, especially the pudding was very nice however and it is lovely to be able to choose anything from the menu
Thank you

Wonderful to find a completely gluten free restaurant for my daughter’s birthday as she is a coeliac. Excellent food and pleasant atmosphere. We were there after the early evening rush as it is next door to Sadlers Wells so it may be rather too busy in the early evening.

Not easy to find a safe gluten-free place for coeliacs. This one is definitely a good one. Good food with lovely staff in a quiet restaurant. Totally recommend it.

Relaxing casual dining venue very close to Sadler's Wells/Angel Underground station. Lovely pre-theatre menu. The main menu is only served at certain times of day - depending on if Sadlers Wells is open or not. Good choice for all diners. Nice wine list. Delicious Pecan Pie!

The restaurant is at a perfect location for a visit to Sadler's Wells. With its entirely glutenfree menu it is a treat to not have to worry about whether any of the dishes will contain any. This was our second visit, and we will probably visit again. Having said that, we had to wait in excess of 30 min for our starters to arrive, and then one of them was the wrong one, so we were getting a bit nervous about making it to the performance next door. Given that they specifically advertise a pre-theatre menu with the promise that you don't have to worry about being late for the performance that was a bit disappointing. The food itself - the starters were amazing, but the mains were a bit of a mixed bag. The meat and vegetable parts were outstanding (beef rib and burger), but the baked goods were really quite poor. I've made better gf yorkshire puddings and burger buns at home myself, so I know it is possible to get it right. What we were served seemed dry and brittle. Certainly would expect better in a restaurant. So all in, we will probably be back but more likely for the meat than the baked goods.

Our problem here was the slow service. OK, it's all cooked to order, but surely with dishes like sausages and mash, and burgers, it's hardly all done at the last minute? My hake was OK, but somewhat cold, and my friends mentioned that the mash was somewhat lumpy. The French fries were nice. We didn't get time to try the desserts. The staff were pleasant, but it was a mixed experience, and I won't be in a rush to repeat it.

if you are gluten free (as my companion was) then its awesome. Not worth the spend for the gluten eaters though. it's tasty and great service, very convenient for Sadlers with a great pre theatre menu but for me, it was a sting (£18 for a salad...).

Fantastic food with really thought-through options for vegan and gluten free options. The service was very candid and nice and the place, while a bit too crammed and noisy, still very modern and lively. Perfect choice for a pre-theatre meal. 2 mins walk to Sadlers Wells.
