Given the size and prominence of this huge D&D London landmark on Chelsea’s main drag – the conversion of a beautiful 1920s car showroom – it’s astounding how little feedback it inspires. Such as we have is all positive this year, though.

This smart D&D London conversion of a Modernist 1920s car showroom on a prominent King’s Road site leaves reporters impressed by the venue if rather underwhelmed by the cuisine – “beautiful restaurant and nice service, they just need to up their game food-wise”. Situation normal, then, at this large space, which has never really capitalised fully on its potential.

With its “buzzy ambience” and “stylish interior”, this D&D London bar/restaurant prominently situated in a large and elegant building (built in 1923 as a car garage) on the King’s Road attracts feedback that’s far more good than bad. On the downside, the food is no better than “OK”, and the atmosphere can seem “lacking something… perhaps the room is too large”.

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).

"Had lunch here recently and the prices we were given on the menu were not the prices we were charged (much more) but unfortunately we didn't notice until we had left. The service was very slow too."
