A “great location on a quiet stretch of the Regent’s Canal” – which runs past the King’s Place arts centre – is one selling point of this modern British restaurant, which is on the ground floor of the complex. With beef and lamb from its own farm in Northumberland, it is “definitely a place for the serious meat eater”. There’s a feeling, though, that “the Rotunda has never quite reached its potential, despite years of trying”. Top Tip: “be warned: if you choose a canalside table and it rains, you’ll be handed an umbrella”.

A “great setting” next to the Regent’s Canal, with a large and attractive terrace that comes into its own during the summer months, isn’t the only feature that raises this bar/dining room to being a destination rather than merely an arts-centre amenity – “its farm-to-plate ethos is something special” too, with a dedicated Northumberland farm providing all beef and lamb (hung onsite in their own hanging room, and with an in-house butcher). A recent refurb has added an open kitchen and large meat-aging cabinets on view.

A wonderful waterside location, and “smart and buzzy” interior place this canalside dining room very much at the upper end of your typical arts centre venue, as does its ‘farm to fork’ ethos, with meat sourced from its own Northumberland farm. Results here – generally good – can sometimes be “run of the mill”, but may see a boost from a significant summer 2018 refurb to mark its 10th year. Changes include an open-to-view kitchen (relocated from the lower level of the building), a large meat-ageing cabinet, and chef’s counter heaters, enabling the terrace to be used all year round.

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).
