Chef Kerth Gumbs, from the tiny West Indian island of Anguilla (pop 15,000), is bringing some unusual Caribbean hints to this new, modern British tasting-menu restaurant Boiler & Co, which opened behind Tate Modern in Southwark in January 2022. Takeaway coffee from Kiss the Hippo is also available.
Harden's survey result
“Imaginative Caribbean fine dining” is an unlikely find at any time – particularly considering the bland location of Anguilla-born Kerth Gumbs’s Bankside newcomer, which opened in early 2022 amidst the anonymous glass-fronted offices behind Tate Modern. The Evening Standard’s Jimi Famu thought his east Caribbean-inspired tasting menu to be “dumbfoundingly good… laser-honed… top end” cuisine, while one early reporter questions “is this a potential Michelin star at some stage”. Definitely “worth trying”.
For 32 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).

Boiler & Co Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Some plates were nice. Some place below basic standards. The humous was inedible due to too much salt. They do not clearly label food. For example, a fish dish we ordered had pork in the sauce but that was not indicated in the menu."
