We are Nest; three long-term friends applauding Britain’s world-class produce with simple, delicious & seasonal dishes alongside exciting wines from our Hackney hideaway at 177 Morning Lane.

Johnnie, former chef at Michelin starred The Harwood Arms and hotly-acclaimed Angloleads the line in the kitchen. Whilst Luke and Toby run front of house and match the all-important drinks.


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 product in the kitchen at a time and celebrate low-intervention wines by the glass - we feel quality food and drink shouldn't comprimise the welfare of those involved...and especially not your wallet.

Alongside our Hackney restaurant we'll continue to run pop-ups and one-off events - which is where it all began for us - look out for our floating restaurant on the lakes of Gottwood and Houghton festivals this summer.


We hope to see you at the restaurant or an upcoming event soon.

Johnnie, Luke & Toby
