Restaurant description

Showered with praise since opening in March 2013, Michelin-starred The Clove Club has established itself as a vanguard of the UK dining scene. Set within the impressive Shoreditch Town Hall building, innovative British cooking is served in a relaxed and informal setting.

Ranging from a 4-course lunch to a 6-course offering and full tasting menu, the Clove Club menu highlights fine produce sourced from across the British Isles. Designed to complement the food, the wine list showcases regions from the old and new world, encompassing traditional and modern styles of winemaking, with a focus on artisanal growers.

Elegant yet laidback, the dining room at The Clove Club in Shoreditch sees a sleek blue-tiled open kitchen joined by wooden flooring and contemporary, minimalist décor. The bar continues the relaxed theme, serving up an extensive range of drinks.

Find The Clove Club London an 8-minute walk from both Old Street and Shoreditch High Street stations.

    Regardless of whether the food is good or not, you are literally eating in a large kitchen...and "the club" will not pay for your dry cleaning. Be prepared to factor the stench into this culinary experience. How on earth they managed one star is nearly miraculous. Michelin must be lowering its standards. The place resembles a back room of a 1970's maffia club in Queens. Dishes, glasses, and attire of the staff are well below standard (like The Ritz, for instance) that I'm convinced their pricing is a dare. There is no other plausible explanation because it is not even a fad. This is simply a dare to your sensory ability to have an enjoyable experience as a whole. Ah! please do not insult yourself by dressing up. Not that type of place. Bring your finest flip flops and Hawaiian shirts...and then throw them away. You'll never get rid of the smell. The food is very good and the solitary redeeming quality is the sommelier, who tries very hard to overcompensate for the rest. He knows his wine and food. He may well be worth a return trip, If and when i feel like dressing sufficiently down to match the typical patrons.

    The food is amazing and most of waiters are really nice and lovely. But one of them was quite rush and would like to ask us leave the restaurant as soon as possible. We actually can have tea or coffee after the whole courses, however, she put the receipt on our table right after the last dessert. We were not the last customer at that moment, so could not understand why she did so.

    Having been there twice by myself while travelling, I like the interactivity at the bar with others and the staff. The sardine sashimi and the bone broth with cream. Amazing. The duck sausage and shitake. And the Loquat dessert. Great. (didn't love the duck)

    It was ok but I didn’t think it was worth the cost. The service equally was ok but not consistent and nowhere near as good as other restaurants I have been to. The tasting menu was delicious in parts but took 4.5 hours which was too long for us finishing after midnight. Usually tasting menus have had are 3-3.5 hours max which seems more reasonable
