Praised by top critics including Jay Rayner and Grace Dent, Native in Neal’s Yard pairs innovative cooking techniques with a passion for produce, creating a menu of flavour-rich, seasonal dishes. Served in charmingly laidback surrounds, dishes are packed with the country's best wild food that is native to the UK.

From a River Cottage-trained chef, the Native menu showcases natural, foraged and seasonal ingredients. Dishes evolve with the seasons, but starters may include the likes of wild rabbit and prune pastilla with pickled walnut salad, or smoked pollock croquettes with lovage mayo. For mains, discover dishes like venison rack with spiced cabbage and pommes boulangeres, or flame-grilled clams with ham hock broth and homemade sourdough.

Desserts at Native Covent Garden are no less inventive. Joining a classic English cheese board are twists on favourites, such as pain perdu with basil and lemon curd ice cream.

Tucked away in Neal’s Yard, Native restaurant in London is a 3-minute walk from Covent Garden Tube Station.

    A small restaurant (in terms of number of tables) that goes head-to-head with the best of them in terms of food; In one word -- Incredible. It's inventive, fresh, sustainable, exciting and most of all inviting. Staff was super knowledgable, food was absolutely delicious, every course and every bite touched the palette differently; what a delight! Since the menu is seasonal and changes regularly, it's a wonderful way to try out British game along the year and be surprised and (I'm sure) delighted every time anew.

    Interesting food. They obviously take a pride in their ingredients and presentation. Staff all very charming but service too slow. We were going to theatre afterwards so had allowed over two hours but then only time for two courses. Had intended sharing pudding as well. Quite small portions, with multiple ingredients.

    The food was excellent. Really tremendous. Beautiful presentation. We were the only table downstairs which was surprising, and in terms of decor, I think some of the objects 'placed' around the room felt a bit contrived, but that didn't take away from the fact that the lemon sole main I had was possibly the best fish main I have ever had.
