Harden's says

A brasserie-style restaurant from Michel and Alain Roux, within a new waterside residential complex in Taplow (on the former site of Skindles hotel). The venture will be overseen by Alain Roux, chef-patron at nearby Bray's “absolutely impeccable” Waterside Inn.

This former coaching inn has “everything you’d expect from a Roux Brothers brasserie” – plus a fascinating history as one of the world’s top nightclubs in the ‘70s, when John and Yoko dropped in; it was reborn again when Alain Roux and his late father Michel Roux senior took over in 2017, and the “superb atmosphere by the river” currently abets “top-quality” French cooking at “reasonable prices” too (a snip compared to their Waterside Inn, a couple of miles away).

“Roux family favourites in a superb setting by river – and at reasonable prices”: no, we’re not talking about the exalted Waterside Inn, but its casual spin-off a couple of miles along the Thames, created by Alain and his late father Michel Roux senior in 2017, on the site of a famous old hotel, recreating a neighbourhood family brasserie in France. The result is “very impressive” – and relatively speaking wallet-friendly.

For 33 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).

"I love this riverside, up-market bistro which delivers fabulous location, professional service and simple but well cooked dishes. For this well heeled part of west London surburbia, it represents decent value taking everything into account especially that illusive ingredient, the “feel good” factor."
