Bethnal Green’s old town hall – nowadays a boutique hotel – houses this 30-seater overseen by chef, Simon Shand. Although it lacks the profile it once did, the limited feedback we received this year was all positive: in particular “the fixed price, five-course menu is excellent value for good, modern British cuisine”.

“Hidden away at the back of the hotel”, this “tiny”, “sparse” chamber shares a kitchen with the better-known Typing Room; for fans, it’s “a wonderful fashionista inside secret” and a “splendid gastronomic delight”, but for sceptics “the food doesn’t taste quite as good as hoped”.

For 29 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
