About the restaurant
Portland opened in 2015 and received a Michelin star the same year - which we have retained to this day. We try to offer the best contemporary example of fine dining in London – the finest produce we can find cooked with precision and a high level of technique led by our executive chef Stuart Andrew and head chef Chris Bassett and his team.

We offer a la carte and also a Tasting Menu at lunch and dinner.

Wine is as important as food and service at Portland. Our main wine list aims to offer brilliant value on interesting, different wines which we hope you seldom see on restaurant wine lists. Our Single Bottle List contains bins of some of the world’s finest wines and also more accessible offerings from our favourite producers.

Apart from the main restaurant, we hope that our private room and its offer of secluded and separate dining is just the thing for special family events or business meetings.

I can't recommend this place enough. Everything was outstanding, the food was really delicious had a lovely community vibe about the place but was inconspicuous from the street. The service and the staff were really friendly and very knowledgeable. What set this apart from other establishments was the wine pairing, the sommelier really knew his/her wine and this came through course by course.

About the restaurant
Anglo is a modern British restaurant, ran by head chef Anthony Raffo and manager Marie Danzanvilliers.

With an emphasis on simple, refined dishes, we offer our seasonal tasting menu Tuesday to Saturday dinner and Friday/Saturday lunch.

Here at Anglo we have made a few changes to improve your dining experience with us.

We feel it is our responsibility to use only the best British seasonal foraged and responsibly farmed produce.

We have also made a conscious effort to reduce our impact on the world around us. Such as offering one menu to reduce our food consumption and waste, reducing our plastic usage, using natural wines, British where possible and reducing the amount of meat and fish we offer from responsible sustainable suppliers.

We have made these changes and more to be more sustainable and responsible but without impacting on the quality of our final product and your overall dining experience.

About the restaurant
A British Tasting Menu experience for Dinner, and shorter Set Menu for Lunch - tucked away in London’s Smithfield the dining room overlooks the historical Church of St Bartholomew the Great. We received our first Michelin Star in March 2023 and were awarded a Michelin Green Star in February 2024 - making us the only London restaurant to hold both awards.

Tues - Sat Dinner | Tasting Menu | £160pp

Restaurant St. Barts is the culmination of passion & hard work from three long-term friends Johnnie, Luke & Toby - the team behind NEST restaurant in Shoreditch. It is a celebration of British produce in the heart of historical London.

Arguably one of the best multi-course dinners with wine pairings that I have ever experienced. The perfect balance between subtle flavors and richness. Creative. Well paced. Sequenced. If Michelin went beyond three stars, CORE would be there.

About the restaurant
Michelin starred Frog by Adam Handling is a place to really submerge yourself in a theatrical show. You’re facing the kitchen, the chefs come to your table and you are able to really interact with every member of the team. Frog is luxury in an environment where you feel comfortable being whoever you are and where all elements in the restaurant are connected to offer a truly memorable experience.

The dishes are very emotional and they all mean something to Adam. Each and every one of the dishes has a story behind it, whether it’s a memory from Adam’s childhood or something that has inspired him or the team.

Indigo is both our signature restaurant and a neighbourhood jewel famed for flavour open for a hearty breakfast, long weekend lunches or a delectable dinner date.

A superb experience for a special occasion. The menu is entirely gluten free (dairy free also). The service and attention to detail was exceptional. Is it expensive? Yes. Is it value for money, absolutely! We ate from the a la carte menu. Good range of drinks of all kinds. Nice atmosphere overlooking the hotel bar.

About the restaurant
British seasonal tasting menus that, to avoid waste, use only one meat at a time. Situated in a beautiful Victorian building, enjoy a relaxed, thoughtful & personal dining experience providing value for money found nowhere else!

Vegetable Season | 3 Apr - 13 Apr
Lamb Season | 17 Apr - 25 May
Pork Season | 29 May - 22 June

Tues - Sat Dinner, & Sat Lunch | 8-course Tasting Menu | £75pp
Wed - Fri Lunch | 4- or 6-course Set Lunch | £40/£55pp

The restaurant is produce driven; we work with the very best producers & suppliers in the UK, including Alternative Meats, Shrub Provisions & Keltic Seafare.

The drinks list, and optional pairing, has a strong focus on drinks with low-intervention production methods. These are wines, cider & beers that are full of life & represent the way we feel all agricultural products should be made, farmed or reared: with a focus on respect - towards the natural environment and everyone involved in the process.

Nest has to be the best-value fine-dining experience in London. Wonderful, thoughtful, imaginative food; perfect, understated service; relaxed and beautiful space; amazing wines. Nothing can ever recapture the charm of the original location, but these larger rooms make for a perfect substitute.
