Firstly, let me say I've used the restaurant more times than I care to remember since it opened about 15 years ago. It has always represented amazing value and I've often questioned how they manage to maintain quality and low prices. But.... It's time to...More

A great meal at Little Bay once again. We came here for our 10th Anniversary, having proposed here 13 years before. The food was fantastic, service was attentive and the prices were very reasonable. Thank you :-)

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a

time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
