Pickled Fred has become a must-visit restaurant for us when we are in London. The staff is friendly and helpful, the cocktails are creative and scrumptious, and the food is wonderful! The Smoked Goat cocktail is our favorite as we like both tequila and mezcal and they combine them with fruit juice to accomplish something special. The lotus root chips as a starter can't be beat and we *always* have the octopus - it's cooked perfectly and spiced to perfection. (We now get two plates of this so we don't have to share!) New on the menu for us this time were the duck breast with pickled plum puree and a new flatbread with lamb kofte. Having learn our limits the last time we were here, we only had the duck and it is a worthy addition to the menu - cooked just right, it is very tasty and the tart pickled plum puree brings out the flavor of the duck in engaging ways. If you are in London, Pickle Fred is the place to eat!
Very nice food, providing something different to the norm. Would definitely go back and make use of the 6 cocktails before 7pm! Great service too.
Food was amazing , service spot on and very informative and friendly , lovely relaxed atmosphere , new fav restaurant , cocktails beautiful , will be coming back on our next visit to London
This is my third time here . Very knowledgeable waiter, who helped us with a few questions on the ingredients in the meals. I think I liked all the plates apart from one (and that was more because I wasn't too fond of one of the vegetables, rather than it being a poor offering). Fairly expensive, but you get a premium experience. Would recommend.
I booked this restaurant based on the look of the menu and it absolutely excelled my expectations! The dishes are beautifully created and have clearly been designed by a passionate, inventive and knowledgeable chef/team. There is a great selection of food including plentiful vegan options alongside vegetarian, fish and meat, so it couldn’t be better for a group with mixed dietary requirements or preferences. The atmosphere is excellent - despite dining earlier in the evening, the ambience was still perfect and I can imagine it gets even more enjoyable as the evening goes on. The only thing better than the food were the staff - they were so friendly, attentive and just plain lovely! Our waiter really made the night for us so thank you to all at Pickled Fred, we shall see you again!
Went last night to Pickled Fred and everything was excellent! Superb food and service. We ordered several dishes to share and each dish was fantastic. Pickled Fred is now one of my favourite restaurants in London. They really have all the details right - great music, wine was perfectly chilled, innovative and delicious dishes and friendly service. Highly recommended. In fact a must visit restaurant in a cool part of London.
Quite simply, I was blown away by the flavours. The food is a unique take on Asian fusion that I've not experienced before. After reading the menu, I was curious as to how some of the combinations would turn out, for example, 'Peanut Satay and Caramalised Plantain on a Flatbread' is not something I've ever really imagined, but it does — and it does so perfectly. The food is exciting, portion size is good, the ambiance of the restaurant is warm+cultured and the staff have the perfect balance of friendly and professional. Perfect for a group of friends or to impress a date. I'll definitely be going back for more, I just hope they'll be selling take-home jars of their mind-blowingly delicious pickles next time :)
Small, but filling, plates. The waiter recommend two starters, two small plates, and a flatbread for the two of us and even with only one starter (lotus root crisps) it was actually (slightly) too much. We followed the lotus root crisps with a stunning octopus - tender but crispy! - and beef shin with marrow bone - spicy and done perfectly! We chose the Yuzu Avocado flatbread with homemade chili jam - outstanding! Reasonably priced with excellent service and friendly staff! Our first meal since arriving in London on holiday and we have decided we have to go back (at least) once before ending out holiday! There are many, many wonderful restaurants in London, we know, but this was a very special treat!
Amazing time had at Pickled Freds the only vegan out of 5 and I didn’t feel left out at all, the food and service were amazing, every mouthful was a taste sensation, the cocktails were great too and the staff so friendly and attentive, we will be back…all the way from Cornwall 👍🏼👍🏼
Staff and food was amazing. I have stomach issue and therefore have to be very fussy with what I eat and nothing was too much for them. Even managed to have a cocktail - blended fresh watermelon and (corn) vodka. Very relaxed environment. Although there was clearly a small party going on at the back of the restaurant it was still very chilled and intimate ambience. My only gripe as a fussy vegan was the limited desserts options but to be honest I was satisfied with my main. Thank you Pickeled Fred.
