Bringing a brand new addition to Islington’s ever-evolving food scene, Chef James Cochran has now opened the doors to his much-anticipated new restaurant 1251. Having just won the London & South East category of the popular BBC TV programme ‘Great British Menu’, the talented young chef will be bringing some of his dishes from the show to the tables of 1251.

Situated right in the heart of the bustling Upper Street, moments away from both Angel and Highbury & Islington, 1251 seats forty-eight covers across two floors with an additional eight seats on an outdoor terrace. The destination venue welcomes guests from 11am through 11pm, serving lunch and dinner with a snacks menu throughout the day.

Both floors have a minimal, studio-like interiors, dotted with quirky features from the original Victorian building. The double-height windows on the first floor allow natural daylight to flood in and will be a space for changing contemporary artwork from artists from the local community and friends of the 1251 team. Echoing the feel of the space, 1251 has a curated playlist of classic funk, soul, hip hop and rock & roll tunes to take diners from day to night.
