“Elegant yet relaxed” – Fortnum & Mason created “a real winner” a couple of years ago with this “beautiful bar/dining room”, whose “fabulous cocktails” and “stylish” cuisine make a “smart-but-not-overpowering” replacement for the crusty Edwardian buttery, The Fountain (RIP), which it replaced. Handy for business, it’s also a popular early morning choice for a “cosseting and superb breakfast” (“exactly what I need to recover after the overnight from New York!”). Top Menu Tip – Beef Wellington, with the sauce flambéed at the table.

“Slightly theatrical service” of Beef Wellington and traditional flambé dishes from trolleys adds to the retro appeal and glamorous atmosphere of Fortnum & Mason’s chic, St James’s restaurant (whose cocktail bar, and witty evoking of a “bygone era”, contrasts sharply with the more ‘maiden aunt’ styling of The Fountain, RIP, which it replaced a couple of years ago). It’s a useful location, nominated for business and breakfast – often at the same time!

Fortnum & Mason’s “very positive” relaunch of the all-day eatery at the rear of the store, whose “chic” looks are in stark contrast to its former traditional style (as the long-running Fountain, RIP). No longer consigned to maiden aunts and their godchildren, “the cocktail chaps shake up an irresistible storm” at the bar, and it offers a “consistently interesting menu and service to match”. Top Tip – some traditions have been maintained – breakfast here goes down a treat.

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).
