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.

Bar – The Blind Pig

Blind Pig Cocktail


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. Paul moved across from sister restaurant, Pollen Street Social, to head up the kitchen here and continues to develop dishes closely with Jason, creating his own diverse and contemporary bistro menu that highlights his personal style of cooking as honed over their last six years of working together.


Delivering a contemporary and diverse bistro menu, in addition to beautiful sampler menus, Social Eating House showcases the very best seasonal and locally sourced produce.

Food at Social Eating House


The ground-floor restaurant has exposed brick walls, traditional white-washed copper ceilings and weathered leather banquette seats. The Blind Pig, has a similar vintage twist with an antique mirrored ceiling.
