The Water House Project

Social   fine   dining

The Water House Project is a social and private dining experience based in Bethnal Green, East London.

 

It is run by Gabriel Waterhouse formerly of 1 Michelin stared Galvin La Chapelle and three times Michelin stared chef Herber Berger at Innholders Hall.

 

The Water House Project began in 2015 when Gabriel Waterhouse left Michelin Starred Galvin La Chapelle with the aim of making fine dining accessible. What began as a 14 seat supper club from his modest Bethnal Green home has now grown.

Gabriel and his team serve an eight course monthly changing tasting menu inspired by the best of local produce sourced from the British Isles. The Water House Project has pioneered a new type of dining, 'Social fine dining', bringing a social community element to what is often perceived as a 'stuffy' industry. 

 

Each month our wines are paired by our friend and sommelier Jonny Orton who is undertaking his final exams at the Institute of Master of Wine.

It was an exquisite experience! I absolutely loved it! Gabriel is a phenomenal cook but he does it with such grace and ease. The sophistication of flavor combination and presentation is definitely Michelin caliber, but his humble attitude makes his food very approachable.

I have wanted to attend a dinner at the Water House Project for ages and it was worth waiting for. The food was superb and Gabriel and Sam were delightful hosts. The quality of the dishes was exceptionally good. I can't wait to go back.

In 2015 Gabriel Waterhouse left the grand surrounds of Michelin-starred Galvin La Chapelle with the aim of making fine dining accessible. He bought a table from Ikea and began welcoming diners into his modest Bethnal Green home for a more informal culinary experience. 
Since then The Water House Project has hosted thousands of hungry diners, been featured in TimeOut and Monocle magazine, and was awarded 'Top 5 London supper club' status by The Evening Standard.

Joseph is a student who's worked in Italy in a Michelin starred restaurant for a year before he started a degree last year. He's teaming up with us for the summer before heading back to Oxford for his second year.

James has been working in and out of hospitality since the age of 14 in France and worked intermittently through his masters degree in Aerospace engineering. His long term goal is to inspire change across the hospitality industry, something we're pretty keen on too.

Renato is our sommelier. Renato and I first met in France where we both began our respective journeys in food. We instantly formed a connection and had always hoped to do something together. 

Finally, Antonio is our kitchen porter, he not only keeps things ticking over but he's the ball of energy and smiles who keeps all our spirits high. We worked together for two years at Galvin la Chapelle.

This place is magic. The entire dinner experience was amazing, I think the menu is 2-michelin-star level and the service is extremely well paced and organized. It's great to be able to share with people around too. I will surely come back for a new unique seasonal tasting!

The service and the food is amazing. Each dish is beautifully presented and the flavours work so well together, each mouthful tastes slightly different and leaves you wanting more! I love the supper club concept as it’s such a great experience to dine in a more informal atmosphere but with Michelin starred food. Am already looking forward to another visit. Thank you for a fantastic evening.
