Brilliant food, beautiful service (a bit slow at some points), very polite and friendly staff, favourite dish was the mushroom and crispy onion tart as well as the dessert!

An intimate little space in the heart of Hackney, Nest is run by three long-term friends with a passion for bold, inventive cuisine. The best seasonal British produce is carefully sourced to craft modern dishes, all paired with fine wines in a cosy venue that features rustic wooden tables, simple white walls, and a friendly ambience.

The Nest menu celebrates the rich variety of produce that Britain has to offer, resulting in contemporary dishes that change with the seasons. The a la carte selection includes re-imaginings of home-style favourites like mutton sausage roll and Oxford sauce, along with the warming onion broth with Lincolnshire poacher dumplings. There are also popular 7-course tasting menus, including one that is exclusively vegetarian, with treats including pickled daikon with potato and mustard.

All the menus at Nest in Hackney are complemented by an expertly curated wine list, with bottles sourced from across Europe. For dessert, save room for signature creature comforts like the bread and butter pudding.

A simple yet effortlessly trendy restaurant in London, Nest is only an 8-minute walk from Homerton Rail Station.

    Already looking forward to going back for more! We had a fantastic meal here with partridge being the seasonal main course on offer. Each small course was well thought through, brilliantly cooked and beautifully presented. The two chaps who work front of house were really friendly and gave great wine recommendations. The cosy atmosphere was just right for a table of two to be able to talk all evening. As I said, I can't wait to try out future editions of their changing seasonal menu.

    Nest is my most favourite restaurant-ever! The ambiance is relaxed and intimate. The welcome always warm and the service attentive with lovely smiles. And the food is to die for. Crispy oysters on a delicious samphire mayonnaise, home made soda bread and home churned chive butter (with grated horseradish topping), tiny brioche takes on Welsh rarebit, the chocolate mousse with yoghurt and blackberry... I could go on. All delicious in this wonderfully crafted tasting menu created by genius chef Johnnie Crowe. And so terribly reasonably priced. It’s a steal for what you get. Just amazing...

    Nest was absolutely amazing.
    Wife and I in Hackney for family gathering and booked Nest due to proximity. The food was nothing short of sensational (we had the 7 course tasting dishes) and the service was prompt, friendly and super efficient. No wonder the place was buzzing by 8 p.m. so glad we booked in advance. These guys really do try very hard to please .
