The decor is industrial (but apparently more comfortable than it used to be), the mission is both to work at zero waste and to encourage us to do the same. The staff are friendly, well-informed, and dedicated to the cause (yes, they do forage for...More

I was attracted to this place by their zero waste policy which is such a good idea. However the food was really disappointing. You were encouraged to eat from the set menu at £45 per head. Although there were several dishes, each one was very...More

Hi NjBton, Dogs are more than welcome in the lobby area, however dogs are not permitted in the restaurant area I'm afraid. Kind Regards, Kim

A pre-industrial food system... At Silo we choose to provide quality through purity, adopting a more primitive diet with techniques both modern and ancient. We choose food sources that respect the natural order, allowing ingredients to be themselves without unnecessary processing. By creating everything on site from its wholest form we can capture real food, and real food tastes better. Silo is designed from back to front, always with the bin in mind. The production of waste has been eliminated by simply choosing to trade directly with farmers, using re-usable delivery vessels and choosing local ingredients that themselves generated no waste. Our compost machine set inside Silo, turns all of our scraps and trimmings directly into a compost used to produce more food... Closing the loop.
