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.

    We thought the food was really delicious. There were a lot of staff and the service was good. The presentation and description of the dishes as we received them was extremely well delivered and presented. The venue and location of the Boathouse in Trearddur Bay is beautiful.

    We experienced the Nest at Houghton festival. The food was unbelievable, the location was stunning and the staff were wonderful. I would highly recommend the Nest as a dining experience. They catered incredibly well for meat eaters and vegans and our booking of 10 all thought the same!

    I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and was not disappointed!! We had the 7-course quail tasting menu which was delicious, every little detail was cooked well with ounces of flavour which combined to make a lovely dish.
    The two lads in the front of house served us well, explaining each dish and helping with the wine choice.
    We will definitely be coming back for a different tasting menu in the future.

    Had a fabulous meal at Nest in Hackney last week. Service was attentive but not OTT, and loved the decor. Presentation of each dish was great. And most importantly, it all tasted great! Even although each course is a small serving, we all were satisfied by the end. Wine recommendation was top notch as well. Will definitely return when it reopens later in the year. Don't be put off by the slightly out-of-the-location - it's not that far from public transport options with a bus right to the door!

    The food, service and ambience were all exceptionally good. We were very well looked after, served quickly, and with each dish carefully explained upon serving. The food standard was very high, all delicious and a great variety of interesting flavours. Would definitely recommend this restaurant, plus amazing value for money for the quality and number of courses.

    Everything about the evening was superb. Wonderful setting in the garden at The Old Rectory Sudborough and the food was outstanding using produce from the garden, inventive and lovely flavours with different textures.
