The “great breakfast” means “long queues” at Aussie celeb chef Bill Granger’s “Notting Hill hot spot”“the best brunch place in town”, say fans – and its spinoffs in Chelsea, Clerkenwell and King’s Cross. The “Asian-Pacific-Antipodean” fare served later in the day is generally considered “competent rather than exceptional”“it’s never quite as good as the menu suggests”.

“Despite the eternal, off-putting queues, brunching is always such a treat” at Aussie celeb-chef, Bill Granger’s “very buzzy” (“crowded and noisy”) hang-outs. “Old favourite options given a creative spin” feature amidst the “excellent choice of delicious options” and there’s an appealing “freshness” to the dishes. The Notting Hill original still inspires most feedback, but all outlets – King’s Cross, Clerkenwell and Chelsea – have their followings. For any occasion other than brunch they provoke less interest. Top Tip – “OMG, those ricotta pancakes are amazing!”

“A great way to start the day!”“Be prepared to wait” (particularly at the W11 original) if you want to sample the trademark funky brunch of this star Aussie chef’s “cool and airy” chain. But while feedback contains lots of adulation for his “light”, “fresh” and “innovative” fare, even fans can find it “a real mix in terms of quality” and those who feel it’s a case of “hype and trend over taste” say “it’s astonishing that people queue in the rain to eat this mediocre-at-best food!”

For 31 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).
