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.

I recently held my 30th Birthday at Clerkenwell & Social and it was just fantastic. The team were super hospitable to all of our requests, the food was great and it was just a great space all round. Would definitely recommend their upstairs area for anyone looking to host a Birthday or event! Claire visited Clerkenwell & Social on 13 Jan 2017

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 20 Dec 2016

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. Nikki visited Clerkenwell & Social on 10 Dec 2016

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 01 Dec 2016

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. mike visited Clerkenwell & Social on 03 Dec 2016

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 02 Dec 2016

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! visited Clerkenwell & Social on 26 Nov 2016

Had my 30th Here on Saturday night and it was AMAZING! The venue was perfect, I was able to get a Photo Booth in there, bring my own tunes, decorate as I pleased and me and about 60 friends partied like it was 1999!! The bar staff were brilliant too!

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. jvrazzell visited Clerkenwell & Social on 16 Aug 2016

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. spannavision visited Clerkenwell & Social on 16 Mar 2016

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. Kidd visited Clerkenwell & Social on 15 Jan 2016

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! dannielle2014 visited Clerkenwell & Social on 21 Nov 2015

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. Bethany visited Clerkenwell & Social on 24 Sep 2015

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!
