“There’s not a better setting in London for romance” than this 17th-century former ballroom inside Holland Park: “a walk to the restaurant through the greenery is a joy, the space itself is elegant and light; and in the summer, the terrace offers al fresco dining overlooking the formal gardens”. Some reports still talk of the “pretty ordinary” modern British food and “adequate” service that’s often dogged the place, but overall feedback was more positive this year: “its lean years of so-so food and service are behind it”“it’s a shame more people don’t go”.

“Difficult to beat for romance” – this “beautiful and elegant” 17th-century ballroom inside Holland Park (with outside terrace) provides one of London’s most “delightful and secluded” settings for dinner on a summer’s evening or Sunday lunch. Perennially the not-particularly-modern British cuisine is “pretty ordinary”, but its ratings batted well above their normal average this year, amidst reports that it was found to be “much better than expected”.

“A wonderful location, actually in Holland Park itself” – and set in a grand 17th-century ballroom – provides unbeatably “romantic surroundings” for this well-known destination. The food struggles to match the setting, but there are nevertheless reports of “superb celebratory meals” and “excellent-value Sunday lunches”. Top Tip – “best upstairs, or by the balcony on summer evenings”.

“Nothing beats this venue” – a grand 17th-century former ballroom inside Holland Park – “for a summer lunch, it just has all the ingredients”. But even fans concede that it’s “not cheap” and that “the food won’t blow your mind”, and sceptics say “it should be wonderful, but needs a relaunch”.
