Restaurant description

Awarded a Michelin star 18 months after opening and voted 38th in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2018, Lyle’s is a British restaurant with a produce-driven menu.

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. James Lowe’s menus change through the year, and draw inspiration from a network of farmers and fishermen he has worked with.

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.

    Underwhelming. Small portions. Not bad, but Nothing special - I don’t know how this place got a Michelin star. No reason I could see. Food was average. We got poor tasting water and had the carafe replaced with clear water. Just not worth the visit. Sorry Lyle.

    I had worked in a lot of star Michelin during my tower of France, I had few restaurants, and now, two wine bar in the Luberon. « Tout cela » to tell I am an épicurian, and I eat the best oxtail I’d never taste. The waiter was professionnal and pleasant. I recommande this adresse !!! Sylvain, from the « 17 Wine Bar » in Isle sur la Sorgue. ????

    Table wasn’t ready despite reservation, us being on time, no other guests occupying the table and the restaurant being half empty. Food generally excellent if somewhat unbalanced flavour wise in some dishes (one ingredient totally killing another). Excellent beverages but pricey. Excellent, warm, kind service. Best coffee in London? :)

    Fabulous Christmas lunch menu. Each course was innovative and well-executed and overall comparable to (if not better than) tasting menus at more expensive restaurants. Will definitely go back.

    Excellent food and service. Menu is very fresh and adequate portion for tasting. Seats are spacious compared to some other restaurants in London. Good value for money definitely. We loved the atmosphere and friendly service.
