The Zetter is a beautiful, quarky spot. It feels regal, but not pompous. The waitress was nice and explained all of the options well, as there were many. The presentation was lovely and we chose to add cocktails, which were great. The food was delicious, especially the desserts!

Located in historic St John’s Square, in the heart of London, the cocktail lounge at The Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell is full of old-world charm with its decadent Georgian townhouse setting. Evoking the atmosphere of an eccentric great aunt’s home, it’s the perfect place for a relaxed evening.

Guests can indulge in bespoke cocktails inspired by traditional recipes and cordials from the apothecary style counter. The Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell menu offers a variety of nibbles including crispy anchovy stuffed olives, Scotched quail egg and French toast with bacon jam. Sharing platters have chicken liver parfait with muscat jelly, Loch Duarte potted salmon with cucumber and hot salt beef with brioche bun.

A full English or Continental satisfies the hunger pangs in the morning. The Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell restaurant also serves a traditional afternoon tea with finger sandwiches, scones and cakes.

The Zetter Townhouse in London's Clerkenwell is a 6-minute walk from Farringdon train station and close to many well-known London attractions.

    sadly we only had time for cocktails in the end as we had trouble getting to Zetter due to travel ciaos. When I called to explain we were going to be late the member of staff I spoke to was very helpful and reassuring.
    Love the décor and the feel of the place.

    We came to celebrate a friend’s birthday and had cocktails and snacks. The waitress was fantastic and gave great cocktail recommendations. A really enjoyable evening.

    Great cocktails as usual although the menu looks a bit gimmicky now and the amazing deep fried olives have disappeared from the menu.

    We came for the high tea. We ordered both the sweet and the savoury option.
    Dining room had a wonderful atmosphere, great jazz music. And, of course, spectacular tea and scrumptious food.

    A wonderful relaxing afternoon tea experience where we chatted the afternoon away in the comfort of the Zetter Cocktail lounge. The eclectic decor made for an interesting ambience and added to the overall experience.
    There is a good selection loose leaf teas. I had the roobios which is refreshing and light. I had the Aunt Menu Choice and my aunt had the vegan option, both delicious option. Scones were served warm and with plenty of cream and jam. Cakes/pastries were also delicious. A wonderful find via best afternoon reviews online search. Well worth a visit for the ambiance alone. I will be returning soon.

    I love this place and the new decor is nice too. The cocktails are always amazing and the peach spritz was just Summer in a glass. Triple cooked chips actually still tasted of potatoes rather than being crisps which other places fail to do, and charcuterie was lovely - bring back the scotch eggs though! Always been a great time at the Zetter.

    The aftenoon tea was perfect and delicious. I ate a lot. The place was cool and the staff very kind.

    I booked Zetter Townhouse for pre-dinner cocktails for my partners birthday - the venue, service & atmosphere were all spot on,
    although a little pricey still worth the visit!
