About the restaurant

Clipstone is part of the successful Woodhead group, owned by Will Lander and Daniel Morgenthau, which also owns The Quality Chop House as well as Clipstone’s sister restaurant Portland. Clipstone takes a similar ethos to the Michelin-starred Portland but with a slightly more casual atmosphere.

Diners can treat the menu as an à la carte with starters and mains, or as smaller and larger sharing plates. A celebration of seasonal British produce is at its heart, with thoughtful, imaginative and elegant dishes, but always delicious.

The dining room dictates the restaurant’s casual feel: small, bare tables and an open kitchen showcasing the chefs’ cooking. It makes Clipstone a great place to go for genuinely excellent bistronomy-style cooking in a space that’s still sociable, great for a date or catching up with a good mate.

Time Out

Clipstone, you see, is the kind of restaurant we’d all want in our ’hood. It’s the kind that if you were thinking of moving house

The Nudge

You’ll find tongue-challenging starters like crudo of char with unripe peaches & elderflowers; tomatoes with raspberries, purple basil & fermented tomato juice; or grilled ox tongue with heritage radishes & crème fraîche.
