“Inventive food and solid service” make chef Tom Pemberton’s 15-year-old Bayswater venture a particularly strong “favourite local”. Housed in an artfully converted Victorian butcher’s shop, it majors on seasonal British produce. Water damage from a leak in an upstairs flat delayed the reopening after lockdown, but as of September 2021 the restaurant’s Twitter feed was advertising for a new front of house, implying reopening some time soon thereafter. Top Tip: “amazing value set lunch”.

Chef Tom Pemberton’s “consistently excellent neighbourhood resto” in Bayswater has a sharp focus on “very good seasonal British produce, very well cooked”, and is “a bargain for the quality”. “I’ve been eating here since I gate-crashed the opening in 2007, and I’ve never been disappointed”.

“Excellent” seasonal British cuisine – and “modestly priced” too, especially given the quality of the ingredients – is complemented by a “thoughtful wine list” at chef/patron Tom Pemberton’s “wonderful neighbourhood restaurant” in Bayswater. The odd reporter feels “ambience is lacking”, but the majority say “the comfortable modern design and overall atmosphere is really conducive to a great meal”.

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).
