Tom Booton, the 27-year-old head chef, is helping breathe new life into this stately Mayfair chamber, which received nothing but upbeat reviews this year, driven by “modern British cuisine at its best”. This is one of the capital’s grander traditional dinings rooms and, if he keeps this up, deserves to recapture the destination status that’s sometimes eluded it in recent times. In particular, it’s a venue that’s evidently “great for business diners”. But you don’t have to be carrying company plastic to appreciate the “amazing lunch menu”: “at £30 it’s arguably the best value in London”.

This “sophisticated and impressive” Mayfair chamber has had its ups and downs in recent times, and despite scoring a respectable level of customer satisfaction in the last couple of years, still came nowhere near realising its potential as one of the capital’s best traditional dining rooms. The hotel has seen a lot of changes in recent times, though, with the June 2019 appointment of Stefan Trepp as Executive Chef (replacing Henry Brosi who’d been in-post for 20 years); and with the July 2019 hiring of 26-year-old Tom Booton, who shifted over from heading the kitchen at the highly rated Alyn Williams at the Westbury. Can this potentially magnificent dining room now finally regain its place as one of London’s foremost hotel venues?

Culinary mastermind Alain Ducasse is behind something of a renaissance at this “very elegant dining room” in Mayfair, which had lost its way quite badly a few years ago. With its luxurious decor and “wonderful” modern French cuisine it can be “unbeatable for a special occasion”. Hardly surprisingly, it is “not cheap”, but this is one of London’s grander dining rooms and deserves to be more discovered again.

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).
