“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”.

Owner's description

Ormer Mayfair was launched by Michelin-starred chef Shaun Rankin who received his first star in 2005 for his restaurant in Jersey. He held it for eight years until the launch of Ormer Jersey in 2013, for which he was awarded a Michelin star just four months after opening.

In 2021, he gained a new Star for his eponymous restaurant at Grantley Hall in Yorkshire. With Great British Menu 2020 Finalist Kerth Gumbs at its helm, Ormer Mayfair continues this celebration in the accolades it has received since opening. It has been voted one of the top 5 restaurants in London by the Hardens Restaurant Guide 2018 and is consistently rated as one of the top 10 restaurants in London for Fine Dining on TripAdvisor.

Ormer Mayfair was also featured on the BBC MasterChef show. Diners can enjoy the taste of Ormer, delivered straight to their door with Ormer at Home.

The chef

Shaun Rankin

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.

Private dining

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.
