Clipstone is a neighbourhood restaurant located on the corner of Clipstone Street in Fitzrovia.

As we are a very small restaurant, we will need your table back after 1 hour and 30 minutes at lunch and 1 hour 45 minutes in the evening, which will be ample time to enjoy what we offer. Should you require a little longer or it’s a special occasion, may we cheekily suggest Portland (!) just around the corner…

Larger Parties
Please note: for bookings of more than 8 guests, we offer a 3 course reduced menu. This is £26 at lunchtime or £45 at dinner.

Seating Types
We offer three different seating options: our tables, stools at our window counter or - weather permitting - outdoor tables.
Please be aware: Outdoor tables are available only if the weather permits. We may not have an alternative table available inside in some instances.

Absolutely delicious food. If you are a foodie, you are going to love this restaurant. Have never been excited about broccoli before but everything Clipstone touches is unusually good and exciting. Have never had anything but a fantastic meal here. Couldn’t recommend more.

We celebrated my friend’s birthday here last Friday night. The food was amazing and the staff friendly and professional. When I booked I mentioned that we would be celebrating and was impressed that when we arrived the restaurant already had handwritten a birthday card for my friend and left it on the table. Later in the evening they subtly checked whose birthday it was in order that they could present the dessert with a candle. All in all a wonderful evening.

The food is exceptional, the service is good but the noise level unbearable. the reason i will not go back or recommend the restaurant is due to the noise level. One has to shout in order to hear the person sitting across. Such a pity for this otherwise lovely restaurant.

Excellent food with a good value for money...
yet restaurant a bit noisy and also I felt service was too quick. The waitress didn’t even have time to open our wine bottle that my first dish was already served. We had a full menu served in less than 1 h!!! I felt it was a bit too express for a romantic dinner!
Last I don’t recommend the bar tables as you get air flow from outside with the doors being open and closed all the time and curtains not properly closed...

The Clipstone were kind enough to keep my table, despite my being 30 mins late. My friend was also 1 hr late, we still were looked after nicely and the food was lovely.

Decor and service was very good - overly salted fish dishes were taken back to the kitchen, removed from the bill and alternatives offered.

It was the last day of employment for one of my team, lunch at Clipstone was just the right note to finish on. The set menu had just enough choice and variety to mean you don’t spend lots of time being indecisive about your choice of food. All dishes had a surprise. I particularly liked the dessert with sorrel ice.

Great, rustic but still finessed food. Slight wrinkle with initial order but quickly ironed out and service was very good. Keeping up the QCH tradition.

Clipstone offers Michelin star quality without pretence (or the stars!). The focus is on the clients enjoyment. A compact menu with a wide variety of fresh flavours and ideas to choose. The chefs create wonderful tasteful and inventive plates with a careful selection of well priced wines to match. The custard tart is worth the trip by itself. All presented by a well informed, helpful and polite staff. Don't miss this quiet Fitzrovian corner.

Halibut and Sirloin were exceptional! Service was enjoyably friendly and discreet.
Impressively young chefs!
Very intriguing wine list. A nice touch with water in glass bottles, both still and sparkling on the table.
Atmosphere was casually elegant. Restrooms were clean, tasteful.
You simply know right away it’s going to be an excellent culinary experience which you will remember for a long time and makes you want to return for more.

The restaurant that never gets old.
Thank you to Pan and Freddie who looked after some very dear friends (and me!) for a birthday celebration.
Special shout-out to the chefs at Clipstone who are meticulous and supremely clever. Don’t miss the mussels or the bream if you are there over the coming weeks.
See you next time Clipstone! It was a pleasure and a treat.
