We are Nest; long-term friends applauding Britain’s world-class produce with simple & seasonal food alongside low intervention wines at our Hackney hideaway on Morning Lane.

The restaurant is very much produce driven and we try to keep things as simple and sustainable as possible. We focus on only one meat in the kitchen at a time which allows us to work with some incredible rare breeds and the best small scale producers in the country. The drinks list has a strong focus on on low-intervention production methods and showcases British suppliers where possible.

We want to create a relaxed, thoughtful & personal dining experience and provide value for money found nowhere else.

Johnnie, former chef at Michelin starred The Harwood Arms and hotly-acclaimed Anglo, leads the line in the kitchen whilst Luke runs front of house and matches the all-important drinks.
