EXPERT REVIEWS

Conde Nast Traveller says: You might assume that the team behind Primeur were attempting a deliberate withdrawal from the hurly burly of the London restaurant scene, housed as it is in a delightful old garage on a quiet residential street in an inbetweeny neighbourhood. And while they've certainly managed to create a convivial, locals-focused feel with their shared tables and informal atmosphere, they could hardly be more central to the sharp end of the London scene with their simple, small-plate menu and on-trend wine list. read more
The Independent says: Primeur boasts an open-plan space, a navigable menu, and excellent, affordable wines. And for the most part, it works. There are just 11 options, plus cheese and a single dessert. Jamon de Teruel is ham from a town in Aragon, in the east of Spain, and the slices here have an aroma that takes you straight to that part of the world. read more
The Evening Standard says: If Primeur were my local restaurant I would be very happy indeed. It’s a friendly, airy former garage with reclaimed wooden floors, 1930s chairs from the Savoy Grill and huge rollback doors opening onto a shabby-chic avenue in Canonbury: ideally placed for those who can’t face the arduous 15-minute trek to the gastrozones of Islington or Stokie. read more
The Telegraph says: Primeur occupies an old garage workshop called Barnes Motors, and that alone makes it irksomely modish. Designed to accommodate cars, it has a pleasing, neo-industrial spaciousness, which could have been designed for its thumping great oak tables, which probably seat about 40. read more
Bitten & Written says: The site of a former green grocer and more recently a garage in the 1930's, they are now fortunate to have one of the most idyllic settings for a restaurant in London. On a quiet, tree lined street on the borders of Stoke Newington and Canonbury, the location feels like a bygone era. read more
