Evelyn's Table is an intimate kitchen bar, tucked away in the cellar of The Blue Posts pub, serving seasonally-inspired southern European dishes.

Kindly note that ‘counter’ bookings are along the kitchen bar in front of the chefs and ‘high-top’ bookings are our two small tables adjacent to the kitchen bar.

Loved the atmosphere and the food on the small menu was delicious. I like the vegetable emphasis
and the cocktail to start was divine! I would go again, but liked sitting at one of the two high top tables, not the bar, as it was our anniversary. Very fun and really nice servers.

Evelyn’s table was a great dinning experience. The intimacy of the place and the very helpful staff make a great combination. Food was mind blowing, we were two people and had 4 dishes + desert to share. I’d recommend going here for a date or a special occasion.

Really nice experience, so intimate and you get the chance to chat to the chefs which is awesome. Food was fantastic, some dishes more than others, but overall a really lovely experience which I'd highly recommend for a special occasion or date night.

Faultless on their preparation of our fresh fish (although meat dishes are also offered)
It was great to see the chefs at work and to be able to interact with them. Four chefs working for fifteen diners!. Good fish is never inexpensive but i will return for more

A wonderful meal, everything was delicious, carefully sourced and prepared. It's a tiny spot, seating 13 or so along a marble counter. The menu is relatively small, too. The cook- to- patron ratio is perhaps 1 to 4. Every dish we ate and saw others consume was beautiful, fresh, and well executed. Nothing is overdone, so the seasonal vegetables, fish, seafood, and charcuterie shine. A real pleasure, great staff, and an opportunity to be close to your food and the talented people preparing it.

We had a late night dinner at Evelyns table. It was a great experience. The staff was really attentive, the food was amazing and the vibe was great! Even though we arrived late we didn’t feel rushed to finish our dishes quick at all.

The service here was the best we had on a weeklong trip to the UK. I had gotten my phone stolen right before our reservation time, and Cedric was incredibly accommodating when we needed to run back to our flat and come back an hour later. No small feat in such a tiny space!! On top of that, the food was delicious, and it was awesome to see the chefs at work!

Had such a wonderful evening taking my boyfriend out for his birthday. Looking forward to finding a following special occasion to visit again. I could happily eat here everyday but as it is such a special place, I want to save it for celebratory moments. From the cocktail upstairs, to surprising him at the side door! The chefs were super friendly and happy to chat and explain what they were making, the staff were happy and funny people and made you feel accommodated in every way. The noise was a good level - able to have a conversation with the person next to you without having to shout over music yet not so silent that it felt sterile. Food price was very fair and the wine list was very well priced! Good vibes all around, I look forward to future visits!

This spot continues to be my favourite to bring friends for a good conversation over dinner. Always buzzy but not so loud that one needs to raise voices to talk. The menu has new and old favourites each time—never had a bad dish. Bonus for work dinners: their multiple seating each evening means that the charming Maitre D helps to usher your conversation upstairs to the bar, a transition that allows for a natural opportunity to end the evening, rather than getting caught in the colleague-loop of the endless post-desert cycles of chat.

We dined on Evelyn's table on a Wednesday night. The place is super small, able to sit about ~12people on the counter and ~4 people in two tables they have.
The atmosphere is good, a bit noisy though. The decor is nice and the chefs are trying to interact with customers.
The food was on the OK side, nothing too extraordinary. Some dishes are really nice (i.e. beef tartare), but some others have intense sauces that hinder the actual food (i.e. too much mayo on the oysters).
I would say the food is on the pricey side, comparing with the value that you get and the whole experience.
The main reason I left with a bad impression was the service. We finished our main course well ahead (~30mins) in time. We asked another drink and we were expecting the dessert menu. Dessert menus never arrived. When i asked for the menu I was told that they cannot give it to us, as they are expecting other customers for the counter seat. I find that a bad service, as neither we were offered the dessert menu in time, nor were told that we need to leave the table after a particular time.
They struggle to mimic concepts like Kitchen Table, but they have a long way to go.
