“I could have bathed in the sauce smothering the devilled kidneys”, eulogises one poetic fan of this “sparkling pub with excellent food” in poshest Mayfair. It’s a proper pub, too, with “well-kept beer” and a “great selection of pies”. “A pint of Young’s bitter and a great pie takes some beating – and only a hop from Oxford Circus.” Upstairs, there’s a smarter restaurant.

Not a vintage year for this classic, “slightly shabby” Mayfair boozer famous for “first-class pies, and well-kept beer to boot”. Fans do still applaud “excellent English cooking”, but a number of regulars filed disappointing reports: “standards dropping off…”; “didn’t live up to the hype…”; “the fire alarm in the kitchen went off they burnt the pie so badly!”

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).
