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 seasonally 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.

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.

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.

Definitely the best dining experience I've had in London.
