“In revitalised Coal Drops Yard” – Angela Hartnett protégée Pip Lacey’s late-2018 opening is generally credited as “an excellent addition to the new development”. But while just about everyone loves its “beautifully designed and buzzy” interior, when it comes to her “interesting dishes, cooked over wood, mainly for sharing”, then opinions are more divided. “Some truly unusual combinations” make it a brand-new-favourite for some diners, but even fans sometimes note that “the ratio of tiny portion size to high cost is a problem”, and for others the cooking is “just not memorable enough”: “confused and far too expensive for what was delivered”. Top Tip – it’s pronounced ‘ee-chay’.

Summary

Ramsay protégée and former head chef at Angela Hartnett’s Murano, Pip Lacey will open her first restaurant, in King’s Cross’s hip Coal Drops Yard development, in late October 2018, with friend and business partner (who will be front-of-house) Gordy McIntyre; apparently they have been talking about running a restaurant together for 17 years! The focus will be on traditional techniques (marinating, curing and pickling) and there will (of course) be an open wood fire for cooking. Hicce is pronounced ee-che, by the way.

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).

"The overpriced plates are so tiny that the staff ask you to double your order. Yet it is the wine that really lets them down, stale overpriced bag in a box stuff for the price of a decent bottle elsewhere. We sent our wine back as it was so poor and got a very rude response from the management."
