“Tasty sharing plates” – sourced from the family farm and vineyard in Sussex – earn general praise for this “charming” but “cramped” and oddly proportioned faux-rustic dining room in Chelsea. Rabbit was the second of the Gladwin brothers’ ‘farm-to-fork’ small plates London venues, following The Shed in Notting Hill and preceding Nutbourne in Battersea and Sussex in Soho. The fifth, The Fat Badger in Richmond, is due to open in late 2021.

“Truly delicious tapas” showcasing “great farm-sourced food”, with “some robust, well-judged flavours” win ongoing appreciation for the Gladwin brothers’ six-year-old King’s Road operation. There’s also a “cool vibe” to the “quirkily decorated room – loved it!”.

The Gladwin brothers’ “fun”, faux-rustique, four-year-old haunt on the King’s Road still wins a lot of praise for its “inventive and tasty”, farm-to-table “British tapas”. There’s a minority, though, who “go with high expectations (we were told it was amazing)”, but leave finding it “overrated and overpriced”.

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).

"Food and service at this cosy restaurant were very good. Unfortunately in these post-COVID times “cosy” is not how one wants to feel and the tables felt distinctly too close together and staff did not press for contact details on arrival. "

"With the current regulations around COVID one would expect restaurants to be very much aware of requirements. On arrival I was not invited to give my contact details and when led to my table this was in the very stuffy main body of the restaurant where I did not feel comfortable at how close tables were placed. Thankfully we were able to move to another table near the front door where we had some beautifully prepared food, however the experience means I will not be rushing back until pandemic is truly over.
