“So much fun and such a pleasure”“it’s a bit hard to find” (below a cocktail bar, in the cellar of the 275-year-old Blue Posts pub, in Chinatown), but this tiny, year-old sibling to The Palomar and The Barbary is well worth discovering. A “cosy and super-relaxed” 11-seater, with a couple of tiny tables; the food is Italian in inspiration but focused on prime UK ingredients, especially fish brought from Cornwall daily. “The cramped counter gives you a ringside view on some exceptional cooking with a priority on freshness and flavour”.

“The guys behind The Palomar and The Barbary nailed it again”, according to fans of this vibey, clandestine cellar below the characterful (Grade II listed, 275-year-old) Blue Posts pub in Chinatown, whose ground floor is now The Mulwray cocktail bar, and where here, down below, they serve funky, small plates (of Italian inspiration, with an emphasis on Cornish-sourced fish). It’s even more cramped than its siblings though, with an 11-seat counter and a couple of tiny tables.

For 30 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).
