“The perfect London pub,” say fans of Michel Roux’s “sophisticated” bar with “exceptional food” near Oxford Circus. It’s not really a pub, of course; it’s been converted from part of the historic five-star Langham hotel. But there’s an undeniable buzz around this latest incarnation: “How can you make the humble cheese toastie taste this good?”

“Setting the standards for a central London bar” – Michel Roux’s three-year-old near Oxford Circus “has found a real niche” as a top West End rendezvous (“almost too successful for its own good” during peak times, when it risks becoming too thronging and loud). “You wouldn’t know that it is part of a hotel” (it’s actually carved out from – and a partnership with – the neighbouring five-star hotel, The Langham) and the unusually “classy” conversion of the space “burnishes the large, pub-style setting”. “Its food is stretching the concept of gastropub food” in terms of ambition, but “definitely worth the money”.

“Setting the standards for a central London bar” – Michel Roux’s two-year-old near Oxford Circus “has found a real niche” as a top West End rendezvous (“almost too successful for its own good” during peak times, when it risks becoming too thronging and loud). “You wouldn’t know that it is part of a hotel” (it’s actually carved out from – and a partnership with – the neighbouring five-star hotel, The Langham) and the unusually “classy” conversion of the space “burnishes the large, pub-style setting”. “Its food is stretching the concept of gastropub food” in terms of ambition, but “definitely worth the money”.

“Good food, good crowd, great value!” – Michel Roux’s gastropub yearling makes a brilliant find near Oxford Circus, with a polished and plush (but still pub-like) interior, whose beautiful design reflects the fact that it’s been carved from a corner of the luxurious Langham Hotel (of which it is part). Reports are notably upbeat on its its roster of superior pub grub, and it has “a lovely ambience, especially in winter”.

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).
