The food is really good here and the place is pretty. We had a departmental dinner which was enjoyable however service has been slow both times we have been. We were in London for a short trip, and heard about Modern Pantry from a colleague at work. We tried several different dishes, including appetizers, but nothing was to our liking. Food was lovely and fresh and the service was really relaxed but attentive. All came together well and was well executed. All of the party enjoyed the meal.
Fantastic food at very reasonable prices.

The onglet steak was excellent. Such good brunch! Definitely recommend going here for great food and pretty vibes. My favourite place for a special brunch with family and friends.
The Modern Pantry
Lovely food and great service! Chef altered the dressing on the salad for my coeliac afflicted companion. Carafe of the house white was excellent, pork perfectly cooked, everything pretty much perfect. I enjoyed my meal - I tried both the sugar prawn omelette and the portobello mushrooms. They were simple dishes but tasty enough.
Not particularly outstanding in anyway but can't complain.
The cornbread was incredibly dry. The service was also quite poor - we had to call the waitress over each step of the way, our coffees all came out quite cold, and then our cups were all cleared away before we finished drinking water or had been even provided with the bill.

Overall, my meal was nice but wouldn't return. The modern pantry has a fresh and seasonal menu with food that is always beautifully presented and tastes amazing! The food was ok, but not great. I had the Cornish fish and it was a bit of an odd assortment of flavours on the plate. Small portion for the price, too. Service was attentive and friendly and the cocktails nice. Not my favourite experience this time around as the meal was too fatty.
Still love the ambience and service however. Great food and good service. Would highly recommend. Excellent business lunch. Very light, ambience great and the food was outstanding!!! We really like the modern pantry, afternoon tea is lovely, imaginative, we added a Bellini each, and that pushes up the bill but hey, it was a birthday.
Cheese scones were gorgeous, lemon curd sublime, and for a Saturday afternoon it was surprisingly empty. My only gripes are the cake was totally underwhelming, and the music playlist was weird and too loud. Left after 10 min because it was extremely loud. Do not go on a Saturday. Gorgeous food and drink selections, lovely atmosphere. Just a lovely place for brunch. As usual an excellent culinary experience with very helpful and friendly service.
The place looks and feels lovely. However, the food lacked seasoning and the service was slow. We never received a couple of the dishes we ordered, and no one offered us a menu to look at desserts or coffee. I plannned this as a birthday brunch for my husband and it was disappointing overall. The best value and tastiest brunch that I've had in London.
All four of us had different dishes and each one was excellent. Didn't have most of their juices and smoothies, waiter kept forgetting drinks we'd ordered, service was very slow and they forget some side dishes Their cutting edge style of food is no longer so cutting edge as others now concentrate on unusual spices, vegetables, ingredients, exotic influences and foraging but it is still very inspirational, inventive and modern.
My supreme of chicken in an unusually spiced sauce with mushrooms and other accompaniments main was light and excellent. Sides offered were interesting but not needed which cuts down the costs. Interesting desserts which we did not try cutting down for January! Shortish but good wine list with a good range. Could be improved.

Previous visits had more charming service. My double macchiato came with the cutest teddy bear picture dribbled on the top. Disappointing the food was tasteless; would not recommend. Friendly staff and a good table with lots of room and we could hear each other.
Service was nice but an ingredient was not known and one side dish forgotten. Food was just about okay. Heritage potatoes overcooked and lamped. I took my mum for brunch and it was lovely, food stunning. Sadly the upstairs was closed but we had a nice table downstairs avoided the refectory table!
The flavours were amazing - however the cut of steak was quite tough. Service was very good but impersonal. The food was amazing!! So many flavours. Not boring basic classic brunch food. It has a middle eastern twang. Excellent breakfast options, but the room is very noisy and the staff are a bit perfunctory and lacking in warmth.
Restaurant review: Modern Pantry | Food | The Guardian
We enjoyed our meal. We were given an upstairs table in the window which I asked for. I love the area and the feel of eating in a Georgian? The only complaints Very good place, but busy. Food good quality. If sitting near the front door in winter quite cold however, even with the curtain! Really nice lunch - we opted for a selection of small plates and they were all delicious.
I would recommend it to anyone wanting some interesting flavours and quality food. And I've been a few times since.
The Modern Pantry, Clerkenwell
It's held true to its fusion, Kiwi roots, but seems to have grown in confidence and swagger over the years. The smoked burrata salad was gorgeous - great courgettes - and the steak was to-die for. Plus a great place for a semi-formal business meeting emphasis on the semi. AND I was sat next to a long-time collaborator, whose taste in restaurants I rate highly. Classic Heritage features are complimented with contemporary design creating an intimate and relaxing atmosphere. Enjoy the same menus throughout the townhouse, with a more formal setting when booking for one of the dining rooms in the restaurant.
Also an ideal space for larger groups, the North and South dining rooms offer flexible options for Private Hire to fit your requirements. For more information please see our Private Hire section.

Jamming at home last night. Tic… The Modern Pantry September 24th. Hopefully not the last sunny morning. Love this shot of our brunch by k.
