Harden's survey result
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.
“Where Lord Grantham would surely have dined when in London!” – this “stuffy” pillar of the St James’s Establishment (est 1742, here since 1984) is “as traditional as traditional can be”, and its “womb-like comfort” and “wonderful” seafood make for “impressive” entertaining; one snag – “prices verge on robbery!”
“So wonderfully old-fashioned”; this “very professional” St James’s bastion of the Establishment (est 1742, but here only since 1984) offers “perfect Dover sole” and other “first-rate” British seafood; prices are certainly high, though – “best visit on someone else’s expenses”.
“The best turbot”, “excellent Dover sole”, “seafood of superb quality” – such are the delicacies which still win a major following for this “civilised” but “absurdly overpriced” bastion of the St James’s plutocracy – est 1742, and on this site since 1984.
Wiltons exudes understated quality. The restaurant's secluded Pullmans, individual tables, attractive sporting and contemporary works of art promote a unique atmosphere.
Wiltons retains many intriguing decorative features from its early years and guests will find that the restaurant's gentle evolution has in no way compromised the sense of exclusivity and calm.
Our award-winning front of house team will anticipate your every wish.
The Oyster Bar
For many years Wiltons Oyster Bar has been known for being the favourite haunt for St. James's locals and business people alike. This is the place to enjoy the finest oysters, game and seafood, amongst other delicious specialties that change daily according to the season.
The first Royal Warrant was received in 1884 as Purveyor of Oysters to Queen Victoria, and a second as Purveyors to the Prince of Wales. Since then our dexterous team of oyster openers have won numerous awards, which include the World, British and European Oyster Opening Championships.
Wiltons Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Disappointing - feels as though it has sat back on earlier laurels; trad does not have to be fuddy duddy but the food harked back to another age (of not very strong British cooking)"
