The Clove Club is a London one Michelin starred Restaurant  of the young chef-owner Isaac McHale which was nominee the 26th best restaurant in the world in 2017 by the 50 best of the world.

The Location

The building used to be the City Hall of Shoreditch in East London. Built in 1865, the Town Hall was for over 100 years one of the grandest vestry halls in the city. Having ceased to be a home for local government during the 1960s it is now a popular arts and events space, run by Shoreditch Town Hall Trust. 

The Restaurant has a bar and a relative small  Dinning Room with open kitchen which is perfect for a more intimate experience. Even with the old environment they created a very lively vibe that the new generation appreciates.

Special Touch

I really enjoyed the service which was very professional. The team are all very friendly but my favourite touch was to see the person in charge to cook your dish was the same one presenting the dish.

The Food

I decided to have the five course tasting menu ( list below), often prepared with British ingredients and produce, with the prestige drinks paring…and that was the best thing I could do. I usually don’t mix drinks but their drinks were incredibly unique and of course accented perfectly to the flavour of the paring dish.

My favourite one was the Madeira 1908 paring with Duck, Morel and Ginger Consommé  infused with the same Over 100 years old madeira, served in a wine glass.
