The strapline for this popular Clapton spot is ‘stews and brews’. Expect, then, plenty of one-pot dishes and a fair bit of beer, too. Fun factoid: Maeve's Kitchen is named after Maeve Binchy - the late novelist and playwright. We think she’d probably approve of the rustic charm here.
She might also appreciate their approach to poetic license - the menu offers much more than just stews. Dishes range from rump steak with chimichurri, and confit salmon with a fennel mousse to sea bass carpaccio with yuzu and truffle oil dressing, and pork involtini with potato gratin, wilted spinach and an orange dressing. Weekend brunches of BLTs, English breakfasts and herbed garlic mushrooms and goat’s cheese bruschetta do brisk business.
And the brews? Well they cover bottled beers from Pressure Drop and Wild Card but also freshly brewed coffee. Plus there’s a short wine list and soft drinks such as Dalston Cola.

Proposed to my GF here, the head chef is an absolute genius, created the best meal for me and my GF. Great ambiance, FANTASTIC food and above all the CHEF IS AMAZING!!
Great little restaurant for brunch, lunch or a romantic dinner. Atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly and the food is amazing!
Lovely home cooked food ,served in a chilled and relaxed cafe. Having planned to go many times - we finally made it this week and were wowed by a delicious fish pie. Looking forward to going back
I love this place. It's really cosy and has a very nice atmosphere. The food is homey and tasty and the staff are quite friendly and relaxed. A great finding in that part of Clapton.
An absolute gem of a place! Fantastic food, great wine & beers, fab service - the perfect local restaurant. If I could have my dinner there every night I would!
