“The Wolseley’s popular little brother provides a setting somewhere between a Munich beer cellar and a Viennese Cafe” in fashionable Marylebone. You don’t come here for the food – a “pretty underwhelming pastiche” of Austrian/German cuisine with schnitzel a menu mainstay – and the feeling is widespread that “they should do better”. But even the many who feel it’s becoming ever-more “disappointing” given the “steep” prices often acknowledge that “it’s a useful spot and usually busy”.

“Treat the winter blues with a schnitzel” at this Wolseley Group brasserie in Marylebone – a “smaller, more casual cousin of the Delaunay”, whose “understated” but cosy interior “whisks you off into an ambience of Continental sophistication” and provides a “lively” backdrop to a meal. True to the culinary DNA of the group, the “Austrian-style food” is “somewhat mediocre”, and given its inspiration “you need to be up-for some heavy dishes”. Prices are “fair”, though, and, all in all, “it’s a useful and reliable spot for lunch or a family meal”. Top Tip – “they understand breakfast here!”

With its “glorious interior”, Corbin & King’s “buzzy Viennese” all-day café in Marylebone is “a lovely, nostalgic and comforting experience”, which – even if it is “a bit pricey” nowadays – “presses all the buttons” if you are hankering for schnitzel Holstein, breakfast gröstls, rye sandwiches and the like. “I love this place and missed my Austrian holidays this year, so the food reminds me of those missed trips”.

“Reminiscent of a grand café in turn-of-the-century Vienna” – Corbin & King’s “warm, cosy, and gemutlich” operation has “a Mittel-european vibe of posh coats, lipstick and gossip”, and is just the place to hole up on a winter’s day in particular. Its “broad and comforting menu” of Austro-Germanic fare does have many fans (who say “the schnitzel is a must-have”), but can also seem “stodgy and also rather overpriced”. Top Tip – “if you’ve never had Gröstl for breakfast, go now! Birchermüsli... Kassler Ham and boiled eggs on proper rye sourdough… herrings and kippers. And yes, strudel IS an acceptable breakfast food! With Einspanner coffee (topped with whipped cream), a lovely start to the day. Embrace the atmosphere… and don’t make any plans for lunch!”

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).
