Description: Palmers Restaurant is a stylish yet informal brasserie-style restaurant in Mile End that is a smart spot filled with natural light, bright artworks and smiley staff. Decorated with tiled floors, wooden furniture, floor-to-ceiling windows and plum-coloured banquettes – this dining room has a friendly, linger-over-dessert-and-wine vibe and regulars know the star of the show is the creative modern British menu which is filled with gems such as the queen scallops with slow-roasted pork belly and Madeira sauce; the Bresse Bleu pear and walnut risotto; and the quince and hazelnut crumble with custard. Suitable for working meals and family nights out, Palmers – which is located on Roman Road, has earned an enviable reputation with local food-lovers.

My friend and myself decided to go for a meal here at the last minute on a sat night. We were both blown away by the food, I had delicious fish and she had steak.

We loved the food. It's just so nice to eat out and have a great quality meal.

The service was prompt and efficient on a reasonably busy night.
We both loved it.
What a gem of a restaurant. Looking forward to returning.
Thank you!

simply the best food I have ever had, this understated restaurant is a gem in the heart of Londons East End, the choice of fresh local produce is second to none, steaks are to die for, fish dishes are amazing, so imaginative, masterchef eat yer heart out!. several times we have dined there, and never ever had a negative experience, very reasonable pricing, and the wines are excellent too, desserts are the icing on the cake, I could go on and on, the down side is that it is not in the mainstream/heart of where it all happens in town, but then that's to our advantage as this well kept secret will soon be discovered and we will be queuing down the Roman Road. talented, handsome chef and delightful staff make for a perfect evening out!

Before you enter your senses begin to tell you that you've made a good choice, a little oasis on Roman Rd. The sense of enjoyment develops as you enter a neatly presented, bright modern restaurant offering a warm welcome. The menu was varied and interesting and the wine list provided a good choice of well priced wines. The staff were professional and knowledgable and the food was delicious! Value for money and a great evening out, we will definitely return.

Booked this place as heading to concert in Vicky Park so needed some food before. We didn't want to waste money on the burger vans inside the venue.

Was struggling for options as I guess Hackney is not renowned for its gastronomy but went with this place on the back of some of the reviews
We had seasonal food well cooked with pleasant service in a lovely calm inviting atmosphere. A really enjoyable Sunday lunch at a great price. Filled us up for the whole evening too so no greasy burgers required! Highly recommend and may take a special trip to return in the future
