About Linden Stores
Wine shop and seasonal British bites.
A family run wine store and basement restaurant. Linden Stores offer well-priced wine selection with bottles for everything and all will be available to drink in or takeaway. When it comes to the food, you can expect a regularly changing menu.
Lovely evening - I can't believe it's been open since November and I haven't heard of you! I will definitely be recommending this place to friends
really great waitress. food was lovely. wine reasonable.
We had a great evening. The food was amazing, along with the service and wine. I can’t recommend this place enough. We’re so lucky to have it in our doorstep!
Really great food and wine, all very reasonably priced. Highly recommended.
We came for dinner on Saturday evening and having had a somewhat cramped fish tapas eve at Prawn on the Lawn on a previous occasion it was lovely to be seated in your revamped ground floor. Service was delightfully friendly ( not quite sure where to hang coats but left ours on the wine racks) . And the food was mostly delicious. We loved the pork scratchings (light and not oversalted ) and found the sea trout beautifully done. The broccoli with peanuts was great too. And we ordered the chicken and ham dumpling which we enjoyed but had to wait over 20 mins for the potatoes to show up. The whole small plate thing with the underlying ethos of it will comes as it's ready is really skewed to the convenience or chaos of the kitchen not the logic of the sequence of the dishes: ie the broccoli the potatoes and the chicken and ham dumpling should all have been served at the same time - it's not difficult : it's what professional kitchens are supposed to be able to do. Sometimes small plate service seems like a cop out for the failure of co-ordinated cooking. We were mystified as to why this had happened since there were only 6 other diners in the ground floor /shop floor space. We ate and enjoyed the smoked roast potatoes (smoked was a slightly misleading term for liberal use of paprika ?) with very tasty bovril mayo on their own 15 mins after we had finished everything else. Then after 25 mins or so we were persuaded to order dessert. and then a dessert wine - Turkish - Mahlep (?) it was chilled and almond scented and we liked what we tasted a lot and ordered 2 glasses only to be told 3 mins later that actually there was not enough left in the bottle and no more available. The last glass and dregs were on the house. Fair enough. We were brought the bill. But not the dessert we had ordered to share. The dessert came 15 mins after we pointed this out. It was fine, i liked the vanilla ice my companion rated the choclatey ganachey tart - though I found it needed more nutty or spicey flavouring . Then we paid . 3 glasses of gruner veltliner were great at £5each . The food was billed rightly minus the dessert. Total bill £57 very reasonable. Overall a really delicious meal marred a little by a series of hiccups in the service and speed of arrival of dishes. We realised why when a party of 20 who seemed to be known to the staff and chef emerged from the basement dining room . They were happy . We might have been a little more content if our meal and service had not been made to feel second place to theirs. We will return as the cooking was excellent and we enjoyed the venue. Am also a supporter of Oklava and hope to experience Kyseri soon.
Our server was delightful and knowledgeable about the food and wine. We loved all the dishes but the chicken leg not so much.
Thanks! Great night. Will be back soon
As ever amazing food and wine. Loved the new additions including the jersey royals, the chocolate dessert and the purple sprouting broccoli. Amazing xx
Beautiful food! What a find!
Beautiful food and wines at very good prices for this area - highlights were the chicken leg, with meat that fell off the bone, and the crispy potatoes with bovril mayo - delicious, will definitely be back!
Super food. Incredible service. Brilliant wine list. This was my second time here in a month and I’ll be back again very soon.
I stumbled upon Linden Stores on Dojo app while looking for a place to have Valentine's dinner with my husband. It was better than I thought it would be! Amazing food, great wine and impeccable service. The place was cosy and intimate too, perfect for a date! I would highly recommend it to everyone.
Fantastic local restaurant - really delicious menu of hearty classic food in an imaginative small plate style. Can't wait to go back and try more soon!
The food was delicious and the wine was lovely. Really cosy atmosphere too, I'd highly recommend it!
Extremely good value for money. Food was delicious and wine variety fantastic. Will definitely come back when we’re in the area.
Great spot - we will definitely be returning!
Great wines and fantastic food
Great venue😃 brilliant food and the wine list is superb. Very happy customer!
This was a private party for my birthday. The perfect atmosphere, delicious food and drinks, and great service. Thank you!
Had a wonderful evening on Saturday. We though the pricing of the wine list was excellent. All the food we ate was vegetarian and we loved all of it.
The meal was excellent and food really tasty. We were hoping for a little more of the Bovril flavour in the Mayo. The beef stew was a highlight for sure. I think if we had been paying normal prices that the fish dish would have been slightly over-priced, it was tasty but i don't think £8 is fair for how relatively small it was. Wine was excellent too and we loved the rabbit with jelly too :)
A great addition to the Islington restaurant/bar scene. Very good food and wine from a short but imaginative menu in lively and quirky surroundings - plus a warm welcome and efficient service. The whole experience was terrific value even without the soft opening discount. Sure to become a favourite for cold winter evenings.
Great evening looking forward to returning! Great wines at a great price!
Very nice atmosphere and wine. Food was limited menu but high quality. Small plates which are great for sharing
The food and wine were really tasty! The atmosphere was really intimate and cosy! The waiter was super friendly! Only bad point - the really strong smell of food in all the restaurant!
