We booked a table for 4 at 4pm on a Saturday. The restaurant was busy but before even ordering drinks, we were offered a booth in the window when other diners left. Starters were beautifully presented. Mains were simply meat/fish, mash and veg… unless a special was ordered in which case it was simply fish and sides were extra. Good choice of puds. All of us left satisfied and stuffed. Service was great.

We stumbled upon this restaurant among the many to choose from in Spitalfields due to being about to sit semi outside in the October warm that we've been having. Celia was our waitress and she was amazing, my friend needs a gluten free diet, and Celia went to great lengths to make sure she had as many options as possible even offering her the duck special- of which there was only one left. This was so special for us because my friend usually has such a hard time eating out, with the staff being unknowedgeable about the menu, or not caring that she has allergies. This place is different. She also sorted us two glasses of wine each from the happy hour, but to arrive when we were ready for them. Only downside was that portions were VERY small, tasty but so not enough food for dinner.

Ate at Canteen last night. Have to say it was one of the most uninspiring meals I have had in a long time. The pie was good however its accompanying ‘seasonal greens’ turned out to be tasteless roughly chopped cabbage and ‘side salad’ (which I had asked for in place of mash potato) was roughly chopped cos lettuce with dressing and nothing else. The rhubarb and almond trifle was watery and lacked substance and taste. You got the sense that very little effort or care was put into the dishes – almost as if the Chef was off for the night and they had asked the kitchen porter to prepare the meals.
