“Quirky and eclectic”, the dining room at this boutique hotel “tucked away from the maelstrom of Piccadilly” “never fails to excel” under its long-time chef, the highly skilled William Drabble. “The food remains consistent year in, year out”, “hitting lots of high notes”, and is frequently “stunning”. Marks would have been even higher, but for a minority this year who felt their meal was “good, but didn’t quite hit excellent”.

“Consistently lovely food” over the past 10 years has earned an ecstatic, if limited, foodie following for low-key chef William Drabble, who “remains a hit in the kitchen rather than on the TV screen”. The “cosy” and “romantic” dining room of this hideaway luxury hotel in St James’s also benefits from “cute, quirky decor and friendly, helpful staff”.

Chef William Drabble maintains a low profile but his “expert cuisine” inspires a small but smitten fan club for this under-the-radar dining room in a swish St James’s hotel – a “cosy room with enough room between tables for privacy”. “He remains in the kitchen, where he belongs, and remains my favourite chef!”

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).

"First class - had the tasting menu but presented with appetisers, amuse bouche and homemade bread before we even started. Every course was a taste sensation. Was able to substitute one course and we are not fans of fois gras and the replacement was excellent even though made especially for us. Am not able to fault anything about the meal or the wine choice (as recommended by the sommelier). Service was very friendly and efficient - lots of banter probably helped because it was quite quiet although this didn’t spoil the ambience or experience. Cannot fault the whole evening or experience and would highly recommend. We will definitely be back."

"Very enthused staff Changed my booking as I got into London early. Arrived at 1200, first problem, reception were taking an age to book clients in and there were no signs directing di ers to the restaurant. Eventually found my own way into the restaurant. I was first. And staff were clearly not ready for me as they were in an archway chatting and took quite a while to eventually see me, saying that, this was the only negative in a very good experience. The venue is gently decorated in reasonably subtle decor. The menu choice was always going to be the Gourmand. I started off with three amuse bouche followed by a surprise extra game soup, which was superb. Each individual course, served at a perfect rate, was well presented and beautifully flavoured. I was interested in the fact they did meat fish meat which was unusual. I am not usually a particular fan of cooked apple, but my goodness the apple tart was quite sensational. The mocktail was one of the nicest I have ever had. Toilets were small but beautifully presented. Staff very attentive and chatty Great experience"

"Delightful restaurant in St James's. The service and food were impeccable but the only choice is a tasting menu. We made the mistake of taking the wine flight which was the equivalent of over a bottle of wine per person but added considerably to the cost. However the experience was a joy."

"Service was an absolute delight, with food to match. It suffers from that designer hotel chich which I've never quite understood but doesn't distract from the great experience."
