This “pleasant spot off the King’s Road” in Chelsea is at its “romantic best if you’re sitting outside in the summer”, in one of the courtyard booths. The seasonal British menu is well executed, if lacking real excitement.

Just off the King’s Road, this two-year-old courtyard bar and restaurant (with outside booths) is a “lovely” venue in partnership with the nearby Chelsea Gardener. The straightforward British seasonal food is consistently well-rated, but no-one suggests it’s going to set the earth on fire.

Opening in late 2020 – between lockdowns – the “lovely outdoor seating” at this large newcomer set around a Chelsea courtyard quickly came into its own. It’s the debut restaurant for Hugh Stanley, with Olivia Burt (ex-Claridge’s and MasterChef: The Professionals winner) at the stoves, and although some sceptics feel it “doesn’t live up to Liv Burt’s performance on TV”, the majority of reports are of food with “exceptional quality and presentation”.

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).
