About Social Eating House

The simple yet carefully created dishes are complimented by relaxed and attentive service in a comfortable, humble setting. Awarded a Michelin star in 2013, Social Eating House is split across three levels, with The Blind Pig cocktail bar on the first floor, the restaurant on the ground floor and an exclusive chef’s counter dining space in the kitchen.

Opened by Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton and Chef Patron Paul Hood, Social Eating House has an experienced and knowledgeable team on hand to deliver a memorable Michelin experience.
