Harden's says

Feb 2020: Brian Spark will stay in charge of the stoves but the site will relaunch this April as Mount Street Dining Room & Bar with a more all-day than evening formula.

This famous five-star hotel’s more casual dining option occupies a distinctively designed and pretty space, complete with indoor tree. It received more muted support this year, though, as a useful amenity for a light bite such as pre-theatre dining: other reports were limited, and more up-and-down.

“The casual option at The Midland” provides “a beautiful setting in this magnificent, historic hotel” complete with a pretty, garden-style interior (with its own tree!) and is a more “solid” destination than The French, with “strong, straightforward cooking”. “You wouldn’t necessarily make a special journey, but if you were staying you wouldn’t be at all disappointed to find this downstairs”. Following the sale of the hotel in late 2018 to a Swedish-Israeli partnership change may be afoot.

“The sister restaurant to the upmarket French at the Midland, provides similarly high quality food but at much lower prices”, and with its “top soundtrack” and “delightful garden style interior” (complete with its own tree) it’s both less buttoned-down and better-rated nowadays than its more famous neighbour.

“What a wonderful space – one part garden, one part house” – The Midland’s more accessible brasserie is a very high-ceilinged and atmospheric venue, complete with its own tree. Previously run by Simon Rogan, he cut his ties with it in October 2016, hence we’ve left it un-rated. Chef Robert Taylor, who joined in March 2016, remains however, and survey reports here were of “food that seems to have stepped up a notch, service that’s a real strength, and a bar that should not be missed”.

For 29 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
