Harden's survey result
The “awesome” setting of its “beautiful” interior provides one of London’s most impressive backdrops for a meal at this grand dining room, north of Oxford Street (recommended for romance, but especially for business). Most reports give a thumbs-up to the “pricey-but-solid” cuisine overseen by Jason Atherton, but – especially at the price – results can be “rather forgettable” (and there were a couple of disastrous meals reported this year). Afternoon teas and Sunday roasts are a recent innovation.
“The magnificent room” – “not an intimate affair, but a breathtaking and fun showpiece” that “makes you feel glamorous and special” – underpins the appeal of this “impressively grand” chamber, north of Oxford Street. The modern British cuisine (overseen by Jason Atherton) is “OK”, but “unduly expensive” – “you’re there for the ambience”. Top Tip – “brunch here makes for a perfect Sunday morning”.
“A wow of a space” (“formerly a vast, voluminous banking hall”) provides “a sunning backdrop” to a meal at what fans say is “London’s chicest dining room”, north of Oxford Street. It can seem like a case of “style over substance” though – the food (overseen by Jason Atherton) is “good but not amazing”, and at the punishing price can seem “a huge let down”.
“You feel like a movie star” in this “opulent” and “dramatic” room – one of London’s “most gorgeous” – which offers the scope for “fabulous people watching”; prices are “inflated” however, and the food (under Jason Atherton no less) is no better than “competent”.
The Berners Tavern Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Wrote a letter of complaint to Jason Atherton regarding the service and some aspects of the food."
"There is no denying the room is splendid. But if you want to feel well looked after in this grand room, the service won't cut it - the staff seem to think they should be quite grand also, and then make you pay for it. The simplified set roasts menu for weekend lunch is fine but pricey - feels like it will become somewhere for concierges to send their guests and not a regular treat that I would particularly want to return to."
