This pair of “casual”, well-located all-day brasseries serve an “eclectic menu” from breakfast on, but it’s the “friendly ambience that’s a real winner”. The Sloane Square branch is “very Chelsea”“great for lunch” and “wonderfully convenient pre- and post-show for Cadogan Hall or Royal Court”.

Opinions divide on these “spacious” and well-located all-day brasseries in Chelsea (right on Sloane Square) and the City (in Broadgate). Fans vaunt them as “very pleasant” for many occasions, and particularly for a business lunch or “excellent breakfast/brunch”. Critics, though, hate them for being “so noisy” and dismiss the food as “overpriced and disappointing”.

“A Sloaney spot for ladies who lunch” – the well-known, “very lively” Chelsea branch right on Sloane Square that’s also convenient for “business lunches or drinks” (no-one talks about its City offshoot). The food avoided the drubbing of prior surveys and won consistent support this year.

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).
