“The epitome of the proper French bistro as you would have found in France 25 years ago”, owned by acclaimed butchers, Aubrey Allen. “Pascal the patron excels at providing excellent meat and fish dishes that are always reliable, and service is friendly even when they are packed!”

“A French bistrot that does what it says on the tin”, Oscar’s is (a touch confusingly) run by Pascal, and owned by Aubrey Allen, ‘family butchers to Her Majesty the Queen’ – so it’s little wonder the place excels for meat dishes, notably “great steaks, perfectly cooked”.

“Still reliable, still cramped, still comforting”, this is a “bustling French bistro as you might have found in Paris in the 1980s”, where “meaty dishes excel” (“who wants to eat cutting edge all the time?”), and where there’s a “great ambience” in which to enjoy them.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
