“Very serious cooking that’s totally unpretentious”, with “exciting seasonal flavour combinations” and “sensational tastes”, won adulatory reviews this year for Will Lander and Daniel Morgenthau’s well-known Fitzrovian. It’s not a flash place – “a simple interior with open kitchen” – but “friendly, highly professional service” and access to “a good selection of sensible-price wines” further add to its appeal.

“Always on form, always interesting” – Will Lander and Daniel Morgenthau’s acclaimed Fitzrovian has won a serious culinary reputation over the years, with both an à la carte and tasting menu available lunch and dinner. Fans say its interior is “lovely and modern”, but – despite its “charming” service – the set-up can also seem a little too no-nonsense; the focus is very much on the modern European cuisine – “every dish is a success”.

Will Lander & Daniel Morgenthau’s “stark and simple” Fitzrovia three-year-old shot to fame on opening, thanks to its “clever” cuisine (for which it was quickly awarded a Michelin star); its “super choice of perfectly conditioned fine wines by the glass”; and sure-footed service that “combines professionalism with warmth and enthusiasm”. Even those who feel “it’s dropped off a little since its debut” feel “it’s still a restaurant to go to if you like to try something new”, and on most accounts a meal here remains “an exciting prospect”.

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).
