Summary

“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”.

Summary

“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”.

Summary

“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”.

Summary

“A delightful walk through the park” sets the scene at this “elegant” Art Deco feature in Holland Park (and when it’s warm, you can sit on the terrace); its pricey and “unadventurous” cooking has never been a highlight, but seemed even more “disappointing” this year.
