Top 10 | Sharing Plate Restaurants in London

‘Small Plates’, ‘Sharing Plates’, ‘Can’t decide what I want so going to order everything plates’ — whatever you want to call them, they’re causing a stir on the London food scene. Whilst the concept isn’t new, and the Spaniards can take full credit for introducing us to the ‘tapas-style’ concept it’s definitely something that in the last couple of years has taken the city by storm. An abundance of places have been and gone – and a few firm favourites have remained. Whether you’re looking for a night out with a group of friends, or an indulgent date night for two, sharing plates are my go-to! My indecisive nature will take full credit for this, and I’ll make no excuses for it, at the end of the day who doesn’t want to try a bit of everything? “Say no to food envy’ and hello to an immersive concept of social interaction over the enjoyment of great food.

In the height of a 2017 focussed on balance you can’t go wrong with a night endured sharing good food and company, without the over-indulgent nature of a three-course meal! Only question is, when they all sound good — where will you try first?
