January 31 2020: Gezellig closed today with little advance warning - we are yet to find out why.

Harden's says

After a successful residency at Carousel, the trio behind Gezellig have now located their own site in Holborn for their unique offering of 'creative comfort food'. The name is a Dutch word that translates as ‘an atmosphere, which allows good times to happen’.

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

“You can tell head chef Graham Long trained with Phil Howard”, given the “precise” modern European dishes at this June 2019 newcomer, in Holborn’s old Town Hall (on the fringe of Covent Garden). It opened just as the survey concluded, but the few initial reports were already wowed by its 350-bin wine selection.

"Taken here by my godson just before they closed. Not surprised. Average food at high prices and a position in No Man’s Land spelt disaster to me."
