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.

As the person who really like The Ledbury, my expectation was very high. Visited today for lunch. Ordered their signature snack (jerk chicken) and pea/ water melon/ feta on a cracker as a starter. For main, we ordered green beans/ herb oil, raw scallops/ coconut and chicken wings/ gnocchi. Their signature snack was very good but not the pea one. All main dishes were good but the problem was the portion of each dish and price of them. For example, the raw scallop dish was 16quid. However the portion was really a little - we all guessed that 3 scallops were used at the most. Chicken wings and gnocchi.. again, there were only 5 bite sized chickens and gnocchi pieces for 14 quid. Including 3 drinks and 3 dessert, three of us paid more than 100quid but we had to grab something more as we all were hungry after all. Dishes were tasty? Yes, most of them. Dishes were worth it? Definitely no. I do not think I will be visiting again unfortunately.

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!

Had the 8 course taster menu and it didn't not disappoint! Cannot recommend 12:51 by James enough! Great atmosphere (casual dining). Staff were knowledgeable and friendly. If in Angel or near by this is a definite venue for a special occasion. Well worth the 5 star awarded 😊

The food was lovely and the service efficient and friendly. The overall price was also good given the quality of the food. The restaurant is quite small and the seats at the front with the windows open are a bit unattractive given the noise of the traffic on Upper St. We liked the way the food came but it may not be to everyone's liking - effectively what some people may regard as a side dish can arrive completely separately from what might be viewed as a main course - really you need to suspend the 'usual' approach to eating food.
