Welcome to Pollen Street Social; a contemporary bistro offering deformalised fine dining. Pollen Street Social is the first independent restaurant from Jason Atherton. Pollen Street Social is the modern urban meeting point. A place to eat, drinks and socialise, both for special occasions, and for somple everyday affairs. Pollen Street Social's name characterised the dining experience within its doors, consisting of three distinct spacel the Social Room, the restaurant, and the Dessert Bar. A striking 40- seat bar allows guests to still enjoy the full dining experience with additional restaurant seating, or to otherwise relax with a drink selected from our extensive menu away from the hub of central London.
At Pollen Street Social we offer a series of private dining packages which can be custom designed to suit every occasion and make your experience both personal and memorable. From various menu choices, wine matching options, we will endeavour to cater to your every requirement. The basement houses a private dining room which doubles up as a sommelier’s room, with built-in spittoons for tastings as well as views through to the development kitchen and the meat ageing room. The private room seats up to 14 guests allowing us to create a bespoke experience, tailor-made to your party’s requirements.
This beauty of a restaurant won Atherton his first Michelin star within just 10 months of being open. And we can see why. Sleek interior, slick staff and a seasonal menu that boasts some of the finest concoctions - you'd be hard-pressed to find fault here. Start in the bar like all good things should with one of their wittily named cockails (the Bloody Mary, whilst a classic, is particularly good) before settling down with something tasty from the menu. Fish here is always a good choice, served in all manners of ingenious ways (we once had it still smoking in an oak box), but the carnivores will be pleased to see some hearty cuts of meat to choose from (bonus tip: head downstairs to see it hanging). The atmosphere here is lively and convivial whatever time you go, and as the prized premier of Atherton's kingdom, you'll be sure to find a reason to keep coming back.
