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.
“The epitome of fine dining, minus the stuffiness” – Taylor Bonnyman’s “unflashy and grown-up” three-year-old, “tucked way in Chelsea” offers “an all-round fantastic experience”. The setting is “elegant”, service “genuine and unpretentious”; while the cuisine is “truly exceptional – exciting, yet accessible and (most importantly) delicious” (“expect an astonishing array of amuse bouches”). Until October 2016, this was perhaps “Michelin’s most shocking omission”, but finally the tyre men divvied up the requisite star.
“It just gets better and better!” – Taylor Bonnyman’s “grown up” and “romantic” two-year-old in the heart of Chelsea is one of London’s most deeply impressive all-rounders – service is “impeccable”, and the “exciting” cuisine provides “a beautiful blend of original flavours”.
“A gem in the heart of Chelsea”; this “brilliant” yearling is a formidable all-rounder, combining “sensational” and “clever” cooking with a “stunning and intimate” interior, plus service that “perfectly balances formality with being welcoming”.
“The most assured new opening” of recent times, say fans – this Chelsea newcomer (on the site of El Blason, RIP) is “a great addition to the London scene” – the interior is “beautiful” (if quite tightly-packed) and service “attentive”; ex-NYC chef Taylor Bonnyman’s “very interesting” dishes deliver some “mind-blowing” flavours too.
A native Londoner, Taylor Bonnyman's cooking encapsulates the spirit of the capital. With a foundation built on British produce and seasonality, the cooking incorporates influences from London's broad cultural complexion and outward-looking philosophy.
Taking inspiration from the seasons, dishes reflect the aesthetics of nature and are a snapshot of the current landscape while the design of the dining room has taken inspiration from the original green fields between Chelsea and Knightsbridge where once there was open space and fresh produce taken in to London.
The main dining room is elegant and understated with pale lime-washed floors, copper backed hessian walls and features sculptured works by Sophie Dickens.
Service is delivered with aplomb by a team as warm and welcoming as they are professional and knowledgeable.
Named after John Rocque, an 18th century cartographer whose wonderfully detailed panels offer a glimpse of Georgian London where this area is referred to as “The Five Fields”; The Rocque Room can accommodate up to 10 guests for Lunch or Dinner.
Located on the first floor of the restaurant and overlooking the charming side streets of Chelsea, The Rocque Room is decorated in warm subtle tones and offers a view into our extensive Wine Cellar as well as a feature fire place.
Guests may choose between two of the Chef’s set menus, which are offered along with a number of additional indulgences including canapés, amuse-bouche, tea, coffee and petit fours.
A cosy lounge adjoins The Rocque Room and is available for drinks to welcome your guests before dining or after your meal.

The Five Fields Restaurant Diner Reviews
"I was expecting more innovation. Very expensive"
"Small graceful and intimate dining room. Mouth watering amuse bouche lead into a well balanced tasting menu. The food is beautifully presented and you leave having had a delightful experience, not too much, not too little on taste, just right."
"Amazing food. The foie gras starter was one of the best starters I have ever had. Excellent presentation and brilliant flavours. Atmosphere a bit muted, maybe because all the other tables were full of Chinese people."
"Family gathering in the Rocque room. wonderful experience"
