I never really venture into Farringdon, my only memory of visiting this busy London district involves a few hazy trips to Fabric; so when an opportunity to head on down to one of the best restaurant bars in the area came around, I grabbed it by the...

One of my favourite spaces in London. On a Saturday it's still got a really nice buzz, and I love the fairy lights on the square. The function room upstairs is a good space too.

Very nice. The 2-4-1 cocktail deal is a bit misleading. It applies to only five cocktails and the 2-4-1 means you buy two of the same for the one price. Nice venue, lots of character to the place. Visited Clerkenwell & Social on 2018-01-29

Went here for a work Christmas party with approx. 80 guests. We had the entire first floor to ourselves with pre-ordered food and drink. I was very impressed with the quality of the food/drink and the service. Having the option to play your own music was great - otherwise the music is played through a central system and is the same upstairs and downstairs so was fairly generic background music. My request for the aux cable was missed off the event, but the team did their best to find me a cable so we could play our own music which really made a difference to the night! It was much appreciated! Overall, I had a fab time! 5/5! Visited Clerkenwell & Social on 2017-12-06

We did book tables for food, but were placed in the bar area. In the end that wasn't really a problem as only a few people ordered food and could perch.

Had a great evening, it was perfect for a chilled Saturday night with friends. Lively but not crowded which was great, and 241 cocktails and pizzas went down a treat. They hadn't put a reserved sign on the area we had booked but were able to move people off the table, so if you book I'd recommend calling to confirm on the day.

We had a wedding party there in late September. 100 people, a mixture of French and English. We had a fantastic night - the location was perfect, the staff were great, throughout the organisation we were well looked after by Gloria and Gui and all our guests are still talking about the venue, the BBQ food, the cocktails and the late night party (open till 2am). We had hired the whole venue and would thoroughly recommend it - if we could we'd have a wedding party there every year for our anniversary. Great night. Visited Clerkenwell & Social on 2017-09-23

We waited over an hour for our pizza's, and when we asked where they were we were informed they had been given to another table. When the pizza did eventually arrive, 1 hour and 15 minutes after we had placed our order, there was meat on one of them despite ordering vegetarian for both pizza. The lovely lady serving us very obliging told us that we wouldn't have to pay for our lunch, and the actual pizza was amazing, but it the late arrival and the unwanted meat tarnished our experience.

The food was nice. However, we had to wait 45/50mins from arrival for the first plates to arrive and then after that people were still waiting another hour for their food. We had pre-ordered so were expecting to at least have some of the dishes ready for at least 20mins after we got there. Visited Clerkenwell & Social on 2017-08-29

I had booked a drinks table for 15 people on 27th April and when we got there they had only reserved a table that, for me and my colleagues, would only accomodate 7-8 people. Moreover, the table inside was booked from 5-7pm and we had a table booked outside which again didn't accomodate the amount of people I had specified in my booking.

Held my 30th birthday here. Great pizza's but I felt conned that the 2-4-1 on pizzas and cocktails that was heavily advertised everywhere didn't count during my private party. This was never made clear and I'd therefore told my guests about the offer and then it felt like I'd gotten them there under a false pretence. It also meant that I could only afford to order half the amount of food for them. If the offer doesn't apply you should make it clear to people before booking and take down the copious amount of posters, sandwich boards etc advertising it while the event is on.

Unfortunately the overall experience was terrible. Here's a couple of reasons why: - The service was extremely slow - it was clear the venue was really understaffed. We had to clear our own table and - It was quicker for us to go downstairs and get our own drinks for the entire meal duration. - It took about 30 minutes for the first of our starters to arrive (which was two portions of bread and olives!) We asked for starter plates a couple of times, which never arrived. We ate our chicken wings, calamari and padron peppers off our napkins on the table. - Many items on the menu were sold out (our booking was at 1pm on a Tuesday) - Some of the food arrived cold and had to be sent back. I understand not to expect everything to be a 100% during the Christmas period, but too much went wrong that day to entice us to come back again. Visited Clerkenwell & Social on 2016-12-20

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE. Ruined my 30th birthday party. - The staff were rude all evening, horrible attitudes, unhelpful - They promised me a section for 40 people, gave the corner of the room - They promised me a space til 1am, kicked us out at 11 - My friend had an allergic reaction to the food and almost fainted, the security guard wouldn't let us take a glass of water outside to her due to safety reasons - Assistant manager insulted me countless times, when I tried to explain to him that I had a space booked til 1am. The words 'I don't want to talk to you, you do not understand anything' came from his mouth Would never ever recommend this place to anyone. Visited Clerkenwell & Social on 2016-12-10

At first the staff were on hand and we were offered table service, but after about an hour or so the bar got busier and another group booking arrived. We only had one waitress to serve both groups which was a long and drawn out process considering both groups had around 20-30 people. You also had no passion fruit puree in stock meaning people that wanted that cocktail couldn't have one. Although it seemed to take forever to get drinks, I must say a thank you to our waitress as it wasn't her fault she was rushed off her feet. She was very polite and tried to accommodate us the best she could. Visited Clerkenwell & Social on 2016-12-01

Just had my 50th party upstairs this weekend. Great place for an intimate party (up to about 80 would be max). Cool decor, nice vibe. While the PA is a bit ropey for anything beyond plugging in an iPod / laptop and 1 mic, the sound is good and the team did their best to make things work. Team are really nice when you get to know them. I'd recommend visiting in advance to say hi and see the space. Staff are super helpful. The terms of business are a bit strict - price of booze, bringing in your own stuff, high minimum spend. Business details aside, this is a cool casual venue with good vibes and nice people who will do what they can to make your night special. Visited Clerkenwell & Social on 2016-12-03

All the staff were so accommodating and friendly. Everyone had a great night and the upstairs bar is brilliant for seperate groups. My one bit of feedback would just be to monitor sound levels, there was a big group next to us but the music was quite loud so we had to shout a fair bit. That being said when I asked for it to be turned down a bit, the staff were more than obliging. Shout out to Stephano (sorry if I spelt it wrong) who was the best bar tender, friendly and efficient and just made my night! Visited Clerkenwell & Social on 2016-12-02

We had our engagement party here this Saturday. We hired the entire ground floor and had around 60 guests. It was the perfect size, we played our own music and pre-ordered some food and drinks! The staff were great and the manager Giovani was very friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend hosting your event here. Thank you Clerkenwell & Social for a fabulous evening!

Best Pizza ever!! Even better because it was on bogof! The cocktails on the happy hour menu are really good. The menu is really quirky, as is the decor. This is a really fun place for afterwork drinks. Visited Clerkenwell & Social on 2016-08-16

A bustling loud environment, and be welling to wait for your drinks and order, but C&S certainly has perked up that corner of Clerkenwell. Remember the 241 cocktails deal!! A welcomed addition.

Great place with busy atmosphere and tasty 241 drinks seemingly at all the popular times. Really enjoyed ourselves. Bit disappointed to find that booking a drinks table is effectively pointless but didn't stop us having a really nice evening. Will go back for longer and pizza next time.

Loved this place! Came down on a Thursday night for dinner and drinks and had a fab time. The music was cool, disco house kind of vibes so nice and upbeat. Their pizzas are bangin and the cocktail collection even better - no faults from me!

Looks like dannielle2014 had the right idea..I booked a table for 12 online for my birthday, and was presented with a table for 4 downstairs. We specifically booked Clerkenwell & Social for food, and there was no way we would be able to sit down and eat together. When I complained, I was told that it was my fault for not phoning and telling them we wanted space for table...I stupidly assumed booking a table for 12 meant we'd get a table for 12........ We just left and went to Piano Works instead, which I can highly recommend. Visited Clerkenwell & Social on 2016-01-15

I booked the upstairs bar for my birthday, and I had the best night ever. Kitchen and bar staff were amazing and chatted to all my guests, food was incredible and we watched the food being cooked fresh, great selection of drinks and cocktails. The venue itself was beautiful and worked when there were just a few of us at the beginning, as well as when there were loads of us later on. Everything I asked for was accommodated and it was a stress-free process to plan the party. Highly recommended - my friends haven't stopped banging on about it since!

Went here for after work drinks with some friends who are big cocktail fans, Everyone fully enjoyed the night and the cocktails were perfect along with the pizza. The calamari I would also recommend to anyone that visits.

I was not impressed and wouldn't go back. Music is bad, service is bad, and worst of all you have to pay the bill before your drinks and food have arrived - such bad form. The literary theme is a nice idea but it doesn't really work as the atmosphere is so lacking. Kind of tacky and full of students. I took a colleague there who was visiting from the U.S. and was slightly embarrassed as it clearly wasn't a great choice. SO many better places to go in Clerkenwell. Cocktails had fun names but our waitress was fairly clueless and couldn't explain why some of them were called what they were.

It's an okay venue with okay cocktails, but the music was too loud to sit and chat. Reserved area was very linear, not cosy and social. Good outside space though. Visited Clerkenwell & Social on 2015-09-24

We hired the upstairs room for our wedding reception and had a wonderful evening. Valerio's Italian food was fantastic, Giuseppe and Chloe did us proud with amazing cocktails, great beers and wine and everyone was so friendly and helpful. Thank you so much!!!!!

This pub is extremely over priced for what it is! I paid £9 for a lasagna and I didn't even receive complementary piece of garlic bread or even a garnish!! The Lasagna was small and dry; I would not recommend it.

This bar is so close to Farringdon and is the perfect place for after work drinks. There are 2 floors (the top floor can be hired out for events) and a lovely outside area with heaters. They have always been so friendly & accommodating. Highly recommended!
