About 12:51

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. And with 50% off the food bill on Sunday evenings after 5pm when you pay with Dines, there's no better way to end your week.

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!

Efficient, friendly service. It's small plates and you'll want to try most of them! Wine was reasonably priced and beers from Brick brewery. Would definitely go back

Nice, high quality food, but I expected a bit more. In my opinion, the meat menu was tastier than the vegetarian one, although the asparagus were outstanding. Our waitress needed a bit more training, specially when it comes to opening the wine--she was moving the bottle instead of the corkscrew. I'll be back soon for the Sunday roast, hoping for a better experience.

Superb food. Fairly basic service- pleasant millenials who only plonk a plate of wonderful morsel in front of you. The brigade in the basement are brilliant.

Was in Angel visiting my daughter and saw that James Cochran had opened a new place so we booked a table. My daughter and her husband thought it was amazing and as locals they will definitely go back. I thought it was very good value for money and the service, whilst informal, was excellent. Although the food wasn't as good as I expected from a chef of this calibre I would definitely go back if in the area.

Very attentive but not overbearing staff and service. Great food. Would recommend ordering small dishes(tasting menu) and share with two. The cocktails are amazing
