LOVED it. The lamb shared between two people is insanely good, as are all the small plates. Really great meal, with great service. Beautiful wines and cocktails too. And the cheesecake they brought out for the Happy Birthday was amazing. Hand drawn Happy Birthday on the plate, nice touch!

A former apothecary in a Victorian warehouse, Merchants Tavern is a chic Shoreditch restaurant serving contemporary European cuisine. A venture from adulated chef Angela Hartnett, the restaurant has received rave reviews in the likes of The Guardian and the Evening Standard.

Modern European dishes make up on the sophisticated Merchants Tavern menu. The menu changes daily, but expect the likes of pork belly, deep-fried oysters and cote de boeuf to share.

Dishes at Merchants Tavern in Shoreditch can be enjoyed with an accompanying cocktail, while there's a range of sophisticated bar snacks. The Tavern interior is an eclectic mix of rustic exposed brickwork, sleek leather banquettes and atmospheric low lighting.

With an intimate private dining room called The Storeroom, Merchants Tavern is a 5-minute walk from Shoreditch High Street Station.

    I've been here before, for a birthday treat and since then always held it in high regard. Coming back on a Sunday afternoon left disappointment however.

    We ordered a couple of cocktails, both delicious with a side bread and spiced nuts.

    Main was a sharer of lamb with potatoes and kale. A third of the lamb was kidneys. I really like food, but I'm not a offal fan, and our waiter didn't warn us of this. It was served with on a thin bed of creamed potatoes and a little kale and some, but too little, gravy. All of which (minus the 1/3 kidney) was really good. However, for £27.50 each, I was expecting much more of the cheap-to-produce sides. To be fair to the waiters on hearing our disappointment, more potatoes and greens came our way, but the disappointment had already set in.

    Didn't bother with dessert as I was feeling too disappointed with the whole experience. Really looking forward to the meal, but I really wouldn't come back ...
