About 12:51 By Chef James Cochran
12:51 is an Islington joint overseen by the former 2* Michelin chef James Cochran and it’s serving up the usual expertly prepared yet approachable cuisine that he has become known for. Mixing British and European cuisine, Cochran has crafted a menu that’s unlike anything he’s done before, earning his incredible restaurant 2 AA Rosettes. With a focus on incredibly tasty food rather than any unifying theme, the chef has split his menu in three with dishes from either the Garden, Land or Sea. There’s something for everyone here, whether it’s the divine crispy chicken wings with wild garlic, gnocchi and miso; the delicious chargrilled Cornish cuttlefish or the must-try crispy curried cauliflower. Every plate on the menu has got its own thing going on! And with 50% off the food bill on Sunday evenings, there's no better way to end your week.

Went there for a Sunday roast with a modern twist. We decided to sit towards more inside of the restaurant as it's located next to the street and could be noisy and dusty otherwise. Their bloody marry's were amazing. One of the best I have ever had. Food was good too. Downside, for me personally, was that the portions were relatively small for the price we paid. I wasn't full after the meal but definitely was left impressed by the quality and creativity of it. Would be back to try other menus, not the Sunday roast.

Was quite excited to try this restaurant, having walked past lots of times. The decor looks nice, which is why I noticed it but once inside it is a little cramped. We were at a table of four at the top of the stairs and I was getting frustrated at how many times I got bashed by people passing by. The food is exceptional in both presentation and taste, however portions are quite sparse. It was recommended to have two of the larger dishes per person but at between £14-£16 each, with some smaller dishes to start it would mean that you'd have to spend approx £50 per person (not incl drinks) before you were vaguely full. So if you want a gastro experience, it's perfect but it you're hungry you may need a kebab on the way home!!

Had a fantastic meal here. Staff were very friendly and food was exceptional. Not cheap but definitely worth it, particularly the jerk chicken "snack" - I ended up having three rounds of this dish, and could have easily had a fourth if money were no object.

Lovely spot for lunch, and great value for money. The goat dishes were awesome and the buttermilk chicken with scotch bonnet jam was outrageous! The cheesecake was the perfect way to finish off. Will definitely be back to try the other items on the menu!
