The Water House Project began in 2015 when Gabriel Waterhouse left Michelin Starred Galvin La Chapelle with the aim of making fine dining accessible. What began as a 14 seat supper club from his modest Bethnal Green home has now grown. Gabriel and his team serve an eight course monthly changing tasting menu inspired by the best of British produce. The Water House Project has pioneered a new type of dining, 'Social fine dining', bringing a social community element to what is often perceived as a 'stuffy' industry. Each month our wines are paired by our friend and sommelier Jonny Orton who is undertaking his final exams at the Institute of Master of Wine.
What to expect at Gabriel's place

What a wonderful experience! We arrived to a refreshing cocktail and little bites while we mingled with the other guests. As each course arrived, Gabriel, explained the course and the wine pairing. Each bite was unique and bursting with flavor. I don’t eat fish and the substitutions of kohlrabi for one course and sweet potato for another was a perfect bite. My only course not quite on the mark was the chicken which was a bit overdone and dry. Loved, loved the experience and would recommend it highly. Thank you!
Fish and chicken courses overcooked and under seasoned. The chicken skin was not crispy and unpleasant to eat. It should have been left off. I informed Gabriel that I do not eat dairy. Instead of accommodating this, he merely removed these ingredients from the dishes leaving me with 4 incomplete dishes out of the 8. For one course all I got was some leaves and a bit of dressing. I was made to feel like an inconvenience rather than a welcome diner. Whole experience was very disappointing. The only positive were the wine choices and the pre dinner drink. They were excellent. Won't be recommending the experience however.
