About The English Restaurant

The information they give about themselves via facebook is just too wonderful not to be shared here: ‘Home of authentic, ambitious, occasionally masterly English cooking. Mainstream. Fish, seafood and game particular favourites. Avowedly Francophile.’ And this sparse and effective prose is all you need to know about The English Restaurant at London’s Spitalfields Market. Their decidedly understated name betrays the grand atmosphere and culinary joy they are certain to bring you – be prepared to be surprised.
