June 2022:  George Bukhov-Weinstein and Ilya Demichev, of Goodman, Burger & Lobster and Wild Tavern, have bought the restaurant with a view to reopening it this summer with Mediterranean food, cocktails, private dining and 120 covers.

Harden's says

September 2021: both Google and OpenTable say this restaurant is "Permanently Closed". The builders are in, we understand, so we presume at some point some new venture will be announced here.

“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”.

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).
