* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

The ground floor of an international journalists’ club, with photo-reportage as wall decoration: this dining room near Paddington Station is particularly worth knowing about as a smartish option in what’s still a very thinly provided area. Its modern British cooking is “a little hit and miss”, but while it only “sometimes lives up to the space” it seldom goes badly awry. One problem: “with all those photos of heroic war reporting on the wall, one feels a bit of a wimp”.

“Handy in the culinary desert that is Paddington” – this well-appointed venue is the ground floor of a club dedicated to war reporters (expect some eye-catching photo-reportage on the walls). It’s a “comfortable setting” for food that’s “relatively simple” but “remarkably good in the context of the general quality of restaurants in the vicinity”.

“Useful in the culinary desert that is Paddington”, this “stylish” and “buzzy” venue is part of a club for war reporters (with pics on the walls providing “reminders of the big news events from the start of the Cold War to the fall of the Berlin Wall”). Most reports praise its “well-prepared classic food”, but there’s also a feeling that “erratic cooking can let down an otherwise sensible option in an area that needs it”.

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).
