For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
This luxurious Belgravia haunt has its fans – “such a special treat” – but the appeal is qualified: “the eponymous rib of beef is splendid but not really backed up by other items”, and “to price it at the same level as the Ledbury and Ritz is considerably too high”.
“A real treat in every respect” – this luxurious, well-spaced Belgravia dining room is firing on all cylinders after its revamp last year; as well as the top-quality roast beef and grills for which it’s long been famous, the “seasonal menus show true skill and inventiveness”.
If only all hotel makeovers were as successful as the rejuvenation of this “spacious” Belgravia dining room – “a high quality traditional experience”, now offering what fans say is “the best roast beef in London”, albeit at “huge” cost.
“An old classic given new life after a makeover”; this “clubby” Belgravia dining room, renowned for beef long before the current steakhouse trend, remains as “abominably expensive” as ever, but more reporters this year felt that “the food matches up”.
