Gordon Ramsay’s “Italian-leaning” warehouse conversion in Southwark, with an indoor ‘olive grove’ complete with trees, pleases some with its “giant portions of great food” and “fantastic cocktails”. Far too many reporters this year, though, complain of a “sterile” aspect to its “industrial” decor, and dismiss the fare as mightily “uninspired”.

More positive, if limited, feedback this year on this Gordon Ramsay group casual Italian in Borough: reporters award solid ratings to food that was “decent to excellent” if perhaps “not cheap” (offsetting which, there are “often good value special deals”).

Gordon Ramsay’s “busy and bustling” casual Italian in Borough attracts a wide spectrum of very mixed views. For fans, it’s “a gastronomic find” and “very special”, but its worst foes say “never again” having experienced “some of the most dire food ever”. Top Tip – “the lunch menu is good value”.

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).
