“A delight!” – Shaun Rankin’s “exceptional” and “beautifully presented” cuisine at this posh, Mayfair hotel dining room wins acclaim from all reporters this year: “not sure why it doesn’t have a stronger following – highly under-rated”. He made his name on Jersey – an ‘ormer’ is a Channel Islands gastropod – before shifting to the capital in 2016. “It’s a beautiful interior, but the basement setting can make it a bit gloomy for lunch”.
Somewhat more mixed feedback this year on Shaun Rankin’s “smart” two-year-old tenure at this Mayfair dining room. For the most part, reports continue to extol his “extremely original and exciting cuisine” (even if it’s “seriously expensive”), but service can hit the wrong note, and the “rather hotel-y” basement setting “could be more cheery”.
Star Channel Islands chef, Shaun Rankin “brings Jersey flavours to the heart of London” at this year-old venture: the new occupant of a classically smart, basement dining room of a Mayfair hotel. It’s one of the highest-rated openings of recent times: “the food looks fabulous but even better is its exceptional flavour”.
Star Jersey chef, Shaun Rankin, has oversight of the 85-cover dining room at this Mayfair hotel, following its recent £14m revamp – it opened in mid-summer 2016.
Ormer Mayfair was featured in the BBC MasterChef show and invites you to book a table for a fine dining experience! "I have built my reputation believing passionately that sustainably sourced, locally-foraged and seasonal produce is absolute. My dishes are simple in their approach to highlight the wonderful flavours and beautiful quality of these ingredients. This passion, combined with the wonderful bounty of the Channel Islands and British fare, is at the heart of my cooking here at Ormer Mayfair."
Michelin starred chef Shaun Rankin received his first Michelin star at Bohemia Jersey in 2005. He held his star for eight years until the opening of Ormer Jersey in 2013. There he was awarded a Michelin star just four months after opening, maintaining it again in this year’s newly published Michelin guide 2018 for Great Britain & Ireland.

The fresh taste of Jersey brought to the heart of Mayfair.
He describes his food style as a new style – his own take on classical with a modern twist, his vision and passion is island based cooking – nearly all produce is sourced from within Jersey, especially in the summer season where nearly 90% of his produce is local.
Shaun has people growing, rearing and catching fresh produce for him every day. He knows them personally; you will find them in his kitchen at times. As Jersey is closer to France than England, Shaun also sources game from France.
There is no better way to experience Shaun Rankin’s exclusive menu at Ormer Mayfair than to book one of the unique private dining rooms.
The ideal location for a special occasion or celebration, client entertainment or an elegant company dinner.

"Excellent cooking. Lobster tail delicious with hint of grilling and claws in tempura. Tuna carpaccio fresh light with hint of sesame. Very reasonable wines by the glass, very good for the price. Warm, welcoming and charming service"
"A favourite for the superb value lunch. Impeccable service and hurrah no music. Food is very good but not always outstanding. Staff are lovely."
