Limited but mostly positive feedback this year at this second-floor dining space, within the gobsmackingly lovely Belgravia Pantechnicon building. Despite the ambition of its Nordic menu (the name means ‘fire’ in old Norse), though, it is still not making many waves. Maybe it’s because a peek up the staircase takes you out onto the gorgeous rooftop…

In the gobsmackingly impressive redevelopment of Belgravia’s gracious Georgian Pantechnicon building – which opened in summer 2020 – this second-floor newcomer is the venue’s most grown-up restaurant space. The name means ‘fire’ in Old Norse, giving some clue as to the main cooking method – with pickling and foraging inspirations much present – and early reports laud some “wonderfully prepared Nordic dishes”. For less foodie fidelity, but more fun, head upstairs to the “stunning Roof Garden” (see also).

For 33 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).
