Last year’s makeover has failed to transform Tom Aikens’s casual dining venture in a Chelsea backstreet, which remains a handy amenity for breakfast or a bite in the area, but is “not what it used to be” as a destination (and inspires modest feedback nowadays). Meanwhile, its sister venues in Canary Wharf and Somerset House have closed down, amid little sign of the standards that made Aikens the youngest British chef to earn two Michelin stars at 26.

These “smart” casual dining venues in Chelsea and Canary Wharf win most acclaim for their “top breakfasts” and the Somerset House outlet has “a fabulous location on the river (outside in summer)”. The food is “decent” but gives no particular hints of much connection with chef Tom Aikens, who founded the group.

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).
