Food was delicious, beautifully crafted and presented. Team were attentive, warm and diligent. The perfect ‘Final Hurrah’ ! I hope in a time post lockdown we can return to sit at the kitchen bar and eat warm madeleines.

Under the circumstances it's difficult to rate the atmosphere because COVID has to a degree impacted the atmosphere. Though, that being said there was a good vibe in the restaurant which felt welcoming, warm and alive in a good way.

We dined using 50% off and was pleased with the deal - I’m not sure if I would feel the same without the discount. The staff there were absolutely fantastic - they couldn’t have been more helpful which was a big ask as I arrived with a toddler full of energy - would definitely return - probably for the set menu or the Sunday lunch (which looked amazing!!) Thank you :)

I didn't like my lobstter linguine. Fiirst of all the pasta was a spaghettina and I hate that texture. Second the lobster had been mucked around with spices which I dislike, Just gve me some lemon and butter with lobster. Long wait for dssert but otherwise service was good. My scallop starter was excellent but steep at £12.50 for two scallops. The hubby's halibut main was beautifully cooked. Perfect texture.

We had a lovely dinner at Merchants Tavern although the restaurant was quiet due to Covid-19. The tables were socially distanced and everything complied with the regulations but it's a shame that the usual buzz was absent. The food was mostly very good although the steak tartare was rather bland. It was so nice to be back in Hoxton for dinner though.

Good food plus a great deal having 50% off. Not sure the food is special enough to pay full price however. Lovely staff and nice atmosphere. Food is lovely just a little expensive outside of the deal for the quality. But still very nice.

Our second Sunday lunch and we loved it! Our thoughts would be that cauliflower cheese added to the veg would make it sublime, and that after your offer period ends, £20/£21would be a more accessible price? We realise you have a great clientele profile but £24 is a little too heavy for us. Really looking forward to coming again, we do love your ambience xx

Lovely food and service as always, and a great cocktail to start. So nice to be back in a restaurant after a tough summer - we wish everyone at Merchants Tavern the best of luck.

Its lovely here. Gret to see it back open, and apart from a few shaky moments with staff settling back in, we had a great lunch. It is really pricey though so if it hadn't been for 50% off the food we probably would have gone. It is clearly good quality, but not sure I'd say its value for money - its sort fo a pub after all.

Food was great but everything took a long time to come. No children’s menu or smaller portion cheaper isn’t good. I would like corkage brought back at a reasonable cost. Staff were very friendly just not very quick.

Was a really good meal for my dad's birthday! Sure it will be even better once it's renovated and the footfall increases.
