Restaurant description

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.

    The Zetter Townhouse is a very well located place, hidden from the main street. The lobby of the Zetter Townhouse was very comfortable and welcoming - especially with the fire place giving it a cosy atmosphere. The Afternoon Tea itself was delicious, but not above average. In general the service staff was kind, however not very attentive (especially when we were running out of tea). It is a quite and good place, but with this staff really improvable.

    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.

    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.
