Famed as the venue where The Kinks played their first gig, the Clissold Arms is a rare example of North London fine dining with a rock and roll history. It is divided into several different areas, from exclusive VIP function rooms to casual drinking and eating spaces. The outdoor dining area is fabulous, perfect for a summer's day and for cooler evenings - there are even blankets provided to keep you cosy.

The menu changes seasonally but always involves creative combinations and innovative ingredients. Exciting dishes like soft and creamy salt cod brandade feature alongside classics such as steak and chips cooked in dripping. The service was excellent and my partner's specific dietary restrictions were dealt with in a gracious and accommodating way.

After a difficult decision due to the variety of dishes on offer, my guest opted for whole stuffed figs served with a delicious honey and truffle dressing; this was offset by a piquant dish of strong goat's cheese on a bed of fiery rocket. My main was a trio of scallops, pork belly and black pudding. Each element was delectable; care had clearly been taken to source the best ingredients and prepare them to perfection. Offering classic British dishes as well as modern inventions, the Clissold Arms is a perfect place to relax and enjoy some great food.
