About The Go Down Restaurant

Begin your meal with some black pudding served with a rich red wine sauce and crispy bacon, or the lightly-battered cod cheeks with lemon puree. Then, move on to some minted lamb rump with redcurrant & mint reduction served on braised lentils, the pan-fried seabass on a mildly curried broth, or one of the many veggie-friendly options like the somerset brie tart with apple chutney. Located inside York House on Clifford Street, The Go Down Restaurant draws in diners from all over the area – book ahead to avoid disappointment!

Hearty portions, welcoming flexible staff. The food was ordered off the fixed menu, and was good value. Would hope though that there will be more light options as we enter the summer months.
