Delicious twists on classic French-Belgian dishes, best of Belgian and local Hackney beers and some of the loveliest late-night cocktails you’ll find anywhere in London. All served up by really nice people in a really amazing place. We combine our French-Belgian heritage with local products and produce to create a unique mix on our all-new menus.

The chefs source fresh British ingredients from Smithfield, Billingsgate and New Covent Garden. The blackboard will always tell you exactly where the beef in your burger or the moules in your moules-frites have come from. We promise to always get the best quality and the best value from the market on the day and pass that value on to you.

The beef wellington was a real stand out the pairing with what seemed like oven chips was a bit of a let down. The mushroom patè on toast- tarter was poor with supermarket salad on the side and the vegan chocolate cake should be renamed the coconut cake not one I will rush back too.

The place itself is great, cocktails were really good but the food let it down! - 3 of us had chosen Chicken escalope which was black when it came out - sides dishes were missing. Thankfully the manager came over & apologized & we were offered a complementary bottle of Prosecco & could choose another dish after one of the inexperienced waiters told us 'That's how its cooked!' Such a shame as not sure I would risk another go....

This was a high standard pub supper, with excellent service, in an authentic hackney pub. Both the room and the other customers could only have been in New-East London. We were impressed that despite the pressure for tables and casual dining feel we weren't asked to give up our table after 90 minutes. The head waiter also gave us first class advice as to where to go on to, for drinks later.

I ran into this through Opentable randomly, we went there hoping for a nice meal and it was close enough in the neighbourhood. The design of the place is very beautiful, the food was phenomenal, the staff so friendly and helpful, and at the end it wasn't even expensive. Will be coming back there very soon!

Food was fine, wide range of starters and sides allows you to put together something too. They've done a good job with the decor, creating a gothic old Londo look. The skylight gives me Titanic vibes!

Overall it was ok but we moved on to somewhere more laid back. I would go back for a date or something, but not with a group

This place has got the old fashioned feel about it sort of dark and mystifying. We ordered the beatnick beer to get us started and then got downto the menu. Choice quite limited on a Sunday but choice of 2 roast dinners and ribs of beef were quite sufficient 2 of us had roast rib, 1 roast chicken and 1 rib short crust. All meals were excellent. The chicken was massive. Another couple of beers later and we were done. Real positives are that no one rushes you. The staff are real chilled relaxed people and nothing to much trouble. All in all a brilliant easy night. Ps you must check out the loos. They got the feel of Jack the Ripper days. Dark, misty( dry even ice maybe) or as my 19 yr old said scary(wimp). Gotta be seen to know what I'm talking about. Cost of night for 4 was £120 food and drinks and well bloody worth it. Will 100% visit the bonneville again😊

Food was good too (had the steak frites and several cocktails), and service was fine. But mostly take a trip to the toilets and appreciate the creepiness (apparently some of Jack the Rippers victims used to work here and so the basement is a sort of tribute and also includes an old cell door from Clerkenwell prison).

I really enjoyed the starter and the main (crab & roast beef) however my friend had the duck which was a very small portion compared to the beef. The dessert was very disappointing. I ordered a tarte tatain which is supposed to be butterey and juicy with fruit on top - firstly it took far too long to arrive and it tasted burnt and was inedible (the toffee had congealed and was stuck to the plate). I really wanted to like it because overall it was a good experience but if I was going to recommend I'd say not to bother ordering a dessert and have more drinks (eventhough they'd run out of some of the Christmas cocktails on the menu). It was £100 for 2 people.

The decor was very seasonal and cosy, the cocktails were great and the staff didn't mind that we spent 3 hours over our dinner gossiping and soaking up the vibes (and delicious wine). A wonderful evening.
