The Jones Family Project 1

Squaremeal Review of The Jones Family Project ?

“I love the space” declares an advocate of this multifunctional bar-restaurant, which fuels Shoreditch’s creatives from breakfast until bedtime. The ground-floor bar acts as a café/workspace (with plug sockets) during office hours, but at night the cases holding teas and coffees behind the bar swing around to reveal spirits. Diners head for the huge basement, which feels cavernous when quiet. Here, a carefully edited menu of international crowd-pleasers awaits. To start, spiced crispy squid with chilli pepper sauce and lime mayonnaise is a masterclass in texture and tang. The Josper grill dominates main courses, working its magic on meat from the renowned Ginger Pig butchery, including prime steaks and rump of spring lamb. Fish specials are cooked daily, while weekends bring brunches and roasts. Correspondents report variable service, so best use any waits to peruse the wine list where the impressive choice includes more than 25 by the glass.

A very enjoyable Sunday lunch.

by   platinum reviewer (82)

Sep 2015

Editor's pick 3 of us had Sunday lunch here. I love the venue, it’s huge, with lots of different spaces and styles. It was very quiet, but I put this down partly to it being an unusually sunny day, everyone wanted to be outside, not in, tucking into a roast (apart from me). There were only about 15 people there the whole time we were, I hope that they are busier during the week because we will definitely be back. The staff were all very friendly and the 80’s playlist made our day – we had great fun singing...

The Jones Family Project (EatLiveLondon)

by   bronze reviewer (7)

Oct 2014

Last week I was lucky enough to enjoy a breakfast meeting at The Jones Family Project in Shoreditch. What I quickly learnt was that this was much more than just a restaurant but rather a multi-faceted social space. The restaurant was formed by 4 close friends with the aim of creating a unique space where people can relax and enjoy good food and drinks in a comfortable environment. What is really exciting about this venture is that it is constantly changing and evolving, so both new customers and...

May 2014

We went The Jones Family Project as we wanted to experience this family-run business based in Hoxton. As they were in the process of changing menus, we decided to go with taking a snapshot from the past and future. Whilst we made our menu selections during chatting to the friendly Anna (Anna Watts, one of the owners) and Cristiano (executive head chef and also co-owner/founder) to get an insight into the new dishes, as well as being taken on a tour of the premises, we sipped on cocktails of a rum...

Amazing range of interesting food

by   (2)

Feb 2014

I have now been there twice: Great range of different spaces in one restaurant. First, on my own, I ate in the light ground floor, and had delicious soup with scrumptious salad for a mere £8. (Though the healthy effect was spoilt by succumbing to a really melt-in-the-mouth brandy bread and butter pudding). The second time I and a colleague went for the set lunch formula, downstairs in comfortable red padded bench seats. Two courses for £14.50: he loved the sea-bass (on a lovely green bed of great...

    Luxury Columnist :: Pop Up Picnic at Jones Family Project, Shoreditch

    One of the best restaurants in London for a Sunday roast, the Jones Family Project is a quirky venue in Shoreditch. They’ve launched a pop up picnic for Summer, and I was lucky to be invited along to try it.

    Cook & Pour :: The Jones Family Project, a hidden gem | Cook & Pour

    I have been here a couple of times for drinks, as they have a good happy hour on the ground floor bar. I’ve even ventured downstairs once or twice, but I really didn’t truly notice the cavernous restaurant and bar space on the lower ground floor. Wow. We had our first taste of this Shoreditch grill recently and I loved everything about it.

    It’s family owned, so a lot of love has gone into this place from the comfy decor to the quality sourced produce. The menu is not huge, which works in this case, as it is mostly meat options from the josper charcoal oven (highly rated for good steakhouses)...

    The Critics Guide :: The Jones Family Project

    The Jones Family Project is located in Shoreditch just a few steps from Old Street Station. We visited in their opening period and had such a wonderful experience, we were keen to revisit and see how things had progressed.
    Upon arrival we were escorted downstairs to our table, the restaurant on the lower level covers a large area and is separated into different areas. Each area is nicely designed and creates a fun and warm atmosphere, the service is super-friendly, and the food remains just as impressive as our previous visit.
