Contemporary London Restaurant, Wine Bar & Music Venue from Proprietor Charlie Mellor & Chef Adam Boon.

Now Permanently Closed.


Head Chef Adam Boon delivers a bold take on the contemporary London bistro.


We focus on delivering an exciting, seasonally-focused & dynamic set menu. It is comprised of six courses. On mid-week evenings & Sundays we serve this menu alongside a concise a la carte offering.


Walk-ins are always welcome for a drink and a light bite. When you book to dine, we expect that you’re with us for the full show.

Wine Cellar

We support artisan farmers who work their vineyards organically to produce inspiring, authentic wines. Whatever your taste or budget, we aim to passionately serve you wines you will love.

We also operate an Off Licence selling wine to take away at reduced prices.

The Cave


Behind our Off Licence is La Cave, one of London’s most unique audiophile venues – making sound, music and acoustics as important as the food and drink offering. 

Fast becoming one of East London’s most sought after events spaces, La Cave is a perfect venue for your next party. From seated dining, corporate hire to micro discos, we can accommodate and would love to have you with us.

La Cave occasionally opens to the public as a listening bar, showcasing the finest DJs from London and beyond. We promote these nights through our instagram account.

Please email to enquire about how we can make your next party something truly special.
