This is one of my favourite restaurants in London. Exciting, innovative food that is great value. Minimalist decor, good atmosphere. Top tip is a cocktail at Lounge Bohemia round the corner beforehand (you have to book).

Michelin-starred Lyle’s is the first restaurant from renowned chef James Lowe, founding member of the esteemed Young Turks Collective, alongside John Ogier, his former colleague at St John. Opened in Spring 2014, the restaurant occupies an enviably trendy spot in Shoreditch, the fittingly modern and minimalist décor offset by the rich, wholesome cuisine.

Big on UK produce, the Lyle’s menu is a creative blend of British and Scandinavian influences, with both lunch and dinner menus updated daily. Dishes may include the likes of Dover sole with seaweed and anchovy, Galloway flank steak with pickled walnuts, and pumpkin with smoked eel and kale. Homemade breads, butters and pickles also feature.

Desserts at Lyle’s restaurant are no less creative, and include fig and fig leaf ice cream alongside a classically British cheese board. A carefully selected wine menu, which evolves with the seasons, perfectly complements the exquisite menu.

On one of London’s most vibrant streets, Lyle’s Shoreditch is a 1-minute walk from Shoreditch High Street Train Station.

    Food was excellent. Some kitchen smells became apparent later in the evening

    Been here for lunch before and loved it so wanted to try the dinner experience. And wasn't disappointed. Fresh ingredients, amazing flavours, all complementing each other. Good wine
    selection. One of my favourite places in London right now.

    Great set menu, all dishes very complimentary.

    The dining space is very bright, open, and tasteful. The wine was excellent. Unfortunately we ordered from the vegan menu which left a lot to be desired. For £44 you get 4 plates (including the dessert), all of which consisted of braised or steamed vegetables in a marinade or au jus. The entire meal tasted quite flat, and the general impression was that the chef did not give much if any thought to the vegan option on the day. All of the plates resembled side dishes to main menu, which left us feeling a bit dispirited for having given the restaurant a try. Even if the fresh ingredients are meant to be the focus, is there a reason none of the dishes included any grains? Also, I'm sorry, but fermented gooseberries are just foul.

    Lyle's always delivers, interesting, seasonal, flavourful, delicious, fresh food. Lovely selection of natural wines.

    We really enjoyed our evening at Lyle's. Overall, the food has been really good. The service was extremely friendly, however they seemed to be in a rush and did not take too much time explaining the dishes or for time with the customers. Moreover, the location was really cold and the bathrooms could be a lot nicer aswell.

    Excellent restaurant! The staff were all just lovely. They were attentive without being irritating and genuinely polite. The menu was interesting and unusual with a selection of prices. I chose the beetroot/beef and walnut dish which was delicious. My three friends all chose another beef dish with anchovy sauce. Apart from having to get the beef cooked a bit more for two of them, they all thoroughly enjoyed the dish but the two males would have enjoyed bigger portions. The cheeses finished off the meal particularly the crispy wafer type bread. The tables are well spaced out so you don't have to hear other conversations. The music was a bit loud probably because of bare walls and floor.
