Bistro Freddie

A classic bistro, offering a menu featuring the best produce of the British Isles, from the founder of Crispin in Spitalfields and Bar Crispin in Soho.

Located between Shoreditch High Street and Old Street stations, in the space previously occupied by Turkish restaurant, Oklava, the 45-cover restaurant has a classic bistro feel - think starched white cloths, bespoke leather banquettes, a lacquered wood bar, and works from artists such as Ben Burgis adorning the nicotine-yellow walls. The food menu is overseen by Anna Søgaard who joins the Crispin Group from revered Manchester restaurant Erst. Anna’s menu offers classic, unpretentious, and comforting bistro-style dishes. As with both Crispin and Bar Crispin, there's a focus on small and predominantly independent wine producers and growers - on a classic all-French wine list. 

Signature Dishes

Grilled pork loin with leek soubise & trotter broth; fried skate wing with a curry sauce & capers; a rabbit, bacon & apple cider pie and a nostalgic ‘steamed marmalade pudding & custard.
