Please note that bookings require a £6 deposit per person to confirm. This will then be taken off the bill on the night. We are unable to take deposits over the phone so reservations must be made via the form below.

Bookings over 6 people will not be confirmed automatically, and instead an email with a deposit payment link will be sent if we have space for a larger party. 


Cancellations must be made 3 or more hours before your booking to receive your deposit back.

About us

The Natural Philosopher is an intimate 45 person neighbourhood cocktail bar on Hackney Road in East London. We take inspiration from the natural world around us, using foraged ingredients to create cocktails themed around herbal medicine.

We strongly believe in community and so operate a 'Pay It Forward' scheme where guests can buy a drink for the next table to request their bill. 

Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for opportunities to win bar tabs and unique experiences at the bar.

We're taking part in London Cocktail Week which is once again extended to the whole month of October! Make sure you buy your wristband to access over 300 bars in London with £7 cocktails. During this time we will be running a number of events and launching our latest menu October 31st.

Happy Hour runs Tuesday-Thursday 6-8pm with £6 Selected Classics - Old Fashioned, Negroni, Daiquiri, Tom Collins, Espresso Martini and Aperol Spritz.
