We had a fabulous evening. The food was everything we expected and more - seasonal super local and delicious. The atmosphere was gorgeous and Aidan was the perfect host. I would recommend.

Wonderful food (particularly liked the fact that it was all Hackney-sourced), excellent company and a lovely location. Felt like a proper dinner party (which feels like a rare occurrence these days!). Aidan explained the story behind each dish; why he made it and how. It was clear how much attention and care went into each dish. The menu was varied and I liked that vegetables were given equal attention to the meat/ fish dishes.

This was a fantastic evening with great company, food and atmosphere. Aidan is a gifted and truly innovative chef who passionately shared with us his love of locally sourced produce in the comfort of his (very welcoming) Hackney home. The outcome was superb food, fascinating conversations, and us leaving with a smile on our faces, having experienced something a little different. I should mention that I was initially apprehensive when I realised that the final menus had no meat, and, as I don't eat fish, I was predominantly left with vegetarian options (contrary to the sample menu which had two meat dishes). However, I shouldn't have worried as the food was remarkable, filling and diverse and actually all the more interesting for not including meat. Overall, the experience was unique and I would whole heartedly recommend Aidan and any experience he leads. If, you are looking for a meal with meat then note that Aidan rarely includes it, BUT, I urge you to forget your prejudice and consider this experience regardless Bess
