* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Housed in an architectural antiques emporium” in a Georgian mansion overlooking the traffic of Vauxhall Cross, with a dining room “full of chandeliers and vintage finds”, this “quirky” venue has a “one-of-a-kind atmosphere” that makes it “one of the most fun places to eat”. “The food is always interesting”, too, courtesy chef Jackson Boxer (also behind Orasay in Kensington) – “even if the odd dish is a little bonkers”. Overall it’s a “unique restaurant punching way above its weight”, and “a jolly night out is always guaranteed” (especially if, as from September 2021, you enjoy some of the wine evenings or live jazz recently introduced in the cellars of the building).

This Georgian mansion-turned-architectural salvage shop is a “wonderful old building in a location you’d least expect it, overlooking Vauxhall Cross’s huge gyratory system – and worth the trip!” for the “fun” and unexpected discovery of the “vibrant, buzzy bohemian bistro” it contains. Eating “amidst antiques a-plenty”, you can enjoy “unusual breakfasts”, “decent cocktails” and “excellent southwest French cuisine”, the work of well-known chef, Jackson Boxer. Service, though, can be “a bit off the ball”.

The “bizarrely brilliant location” of an architectural salvage shop in a grand Georgian mansion on the Vauxhall Cross gyratory provides a “quirky setting for inventive seasonal cooking and cocktails”. The food is “unexpectedly lovely”: “lunch a bargain and dinner a treat”“in a unique ambience surrounded by reclaimed chandeliers”. (“It’s always fun to spot the new arrivals and mentally fit out your dream house!”)

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).

"First visit post-pandemic. The room looks great. The atmosphere buzzy even early-evening. The whole menu was really appealing and imaginative. Excellent Rougeot “keg” wine. "
