Lyle’s is a creative British restaurant that has been called literally one of the best restaurants in the world. It isn’t, but once you get past the hype, it’s actually a lovely place to sit and have lunch in Shoreditch. Everything from the industrial canteen space to the stripped-back British menu feels austere, but it really lets you focus on the small details, like the seasoning on a salad, or the subtle twist in a pumpkin soup. The laid-back vibe plays a part, too – it’s a grown-up spot in a hipster neighbourhood that’s an equally comfy setting to grab a glass of wine with a friend, or to dive into a full tasting menu. Speaking of which, we much prefer lunch here, when the full a la carte is available and you can try more of what’s good that day. Evenings are tasting menu-only.
