“Perfect sharing plates”, “lovely staff” and a “wonderful evening atmosphere – like being on the Continent” – have made this three-year-old bar, restaurant and wine shop near Selfridges a “welcome addition” to Jason Atherton’s stable of Socials. On the downside, “it can work out expensive”.

An “extensive and great value wine list” presided over by a “fantastic sommelier” is perhaps the biggest attraction at Jason Atherton’s Marylebone two-year-old – “buzzy upstairs, cosier downstairs” – but it scored extremely strongly all-round this year, including for its “really top small plates”.

With its “tempting, well thought-out and unusual wine selection”, Jason Atherton’s Marylebone yearling particularly wins praise for its “casual” buzz. Even fans of its “superb” tapas concede it’s “not cheap” however, and critics say it’s “not up to the standard of the other Socials”, not helped by “blaring” music and an interior that can feel “too crowded” and “self-conscious”.
