“More relaxed than some other more pompous establishments” – Jason Atherton’s renowned Mayfair HQ maintained strong ratings this year. “So slick and so professional”“you can’t help but smile when you eat his food”, which is “reliably superb, as is the warm welcome”. “It’s definitely the kind of place men take their girlfriends to propose – fabulously glamorous.”

“If I want a guest to feel special, this is where I always choose to go!” – Jason Atherton’s “first class” Mayfair HQ is “a great all-rounder with a very nice, light touch to its approach”: most particularly its “clever and immaculately presented food” served “with flair”, but also its relaxed-yet-upscale ambience. “It’s not cheap but – to quote another famous brand – quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten”. “Amazing cocktails” too.

“Well deserving its accolades” – Jason Atherton’s smooth Mayfair HQ combines “consistently great quality cuisine” (in particular the “wonderful tasting menu”) with an “impressively relaxed atmosphere” and “cool design” and is truly dazzling to its large and enthusiastic fan club. On the downside, “deep pockets are needed”, and the service can be “slightly erratic” (although is generally “excellent”).

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).

"A four course meal with the “Afternoon Tea” amuse bouche. A meal full of food theatre and interest. Superb presentation and utterly professional and discrete service. Very pricey. But you get the absolute best in return. "
