“It’s all about the food”“thought-provoking flavour combinations that hit all the right notes” – at Mark Jarvis’s “incredible” venture, where the main options (other than a three-course menu at lunch) are its six- or seven-course tasting menus (alongside “drink pairings which segue into cider and sour beers for dessert – another sign of a willingness to break the mould”). “Service is less polished” though: ditto the surroundings – a “soulless”, “minimal room stuck in lawyer-land” near Hatton Garden. Still, “it’s hard to find the words to describe just what good value it is”. Come on Michelin, wake up and give the lad a star.

“If I could give it ten stars I would!”“Forget the shopfront and the concrete floor” and the “cramped premises” of this Hatton Garden two-year-old. Mark Jarvis’s cuisine here is “brilliantly conceived, superbly prepared and keenly priced” and complemented by a “superb wine pairing”. Service is “knowledgeable and friendly” and the overall style “relaxed”. That it holds no Michelin star is bizarre.

“Light years ahead of some famous names in terms of quality” – Mark Jarvis and Jack Cashmore’s Hatton Garden yearling has “an unlikely location” (“you squeeze into a little shop” and its “slightly dull and muted”) but “don’t let the room put you off”“the quality is arguably unbeaten for the price in Central London” and “to change the menu so regularly, but with such imagination and high quality every time takes some serious talent”. Top Tip – “the lunchtime menu with accompanying wines is a real bargain”.

For 30 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).

"Two years since I last posted a review of Anglo. Still under the guiding hand of Mark Jarvis but now head chef Anthony Raffo cooks and Marie Danzanvilliers looks after he dining room. The dining room at present only accommodates 14 guests. It’s had an uplift but still minimalist. Here the food and the drinks parings (not all wine) speak for themselves. The menu is a tasting one with an oyster option. The oyster is quite special and I would recommend it. Six would have destroyed the balance but I would have been tempted. Food is about as locally sourced as you can get. Somethings foraged less than a stones throw from the restaurant. Traditional techniques revived with pickles and ferments. Zero waste is impossible in a restaurant but the planning and preparation that goes into the menu here means waste is minimal. The flavour combinations and contrasts are exceptional. Well thought out and every dish is beautifully plated and presented"
