“London’s best-kept secret” offers cut-price haute cuisine prepared by “the stars of the future” – student chefs and waiters at Kingsway College in Westminster. “The food is always great value, and can be excellent”, while “watching people being put through their paces and learning the trade is a fun way to spend an evening”. “The main room could be a bit less municipal – maybe get some design students in!”.

“Kingsway College catering students staff this modern brasserie” in a quiet and leafy Westminster square, where customers are effectively ‘guinea pigs’ for training purposes. The “classic fare” is often (not always) “fully up to commercial standards” – but “service, by waiters learning their trade, can be terrible – yet the very reasonable prices make you forgive them!”.

“It’s so enjoyable to chat with the enthusiastic trainees” at this catering college dining room in a quiet corner of Westminster, staffed by the students. Not only that, but “the set lunch menu is a steal” for “witty and beautifully presented food” delivered by “well-meaning if haphazard” servers.

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).
