This Primrose Hill veteran of 40-plus years may not be “revolutionary”, but it is much more than a “reliable and friendly neighbourhood local” under acclaimed chef-patron Bryn Williams, the owner for almost 15 years. Strengths include the “reinstated tasting menu”, a list full of “intriguing wines”, and excellent ingredients that include produce from the Williams family farm in Wales. Service is “friendly and attentive”, and it offers “excellent value for money”.

This “smart” Primrose Hill veteran of 40-odd years is “a most likeable place enhanced by the patina of time, and combined with inventive high-end cooking” from chef Bryn Williams, who has owned it for the past decade. It’s “always a treat” to taste the “beautiful ingredients”, which include produce from the Williams family farm in Wales; although the patron’s tilt towards a Welsh and Irish heritage means it’s “tempting here to overdo the carbs, cream and calories: Irish soda bread, cheesy choux nibbles, creamy tarts and caramel-sauced soufflés to name but a few…”

“Surprisingly good after so many years” – star Welsh chef Bryn Williams’s intimate 40-year-old Primrose Hill fixture (10 under his ownership) “has a loyal following” and under this stewardship delivers ambitious British cuisine that’s “never less than delicious”.

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).

"Excellent value for money in fashionable Primrose Hill, even for a large party. We were seated downstairs in an adequate dining room (but nothing special). Many praised the tender beef from Bryn Williams' farm. Good desserts include a mousse and jaffa cake. Reasonable wine list. Efficient service."

"Perfectly pleasant meal chosen from a limited menu. Given the small menu I had expected more exciting flavours."
