“Creative and interesting chef” Gerald Maguire is behind this idiosyncratic townhouse indie, whose website baldly announces that its “aim is to improve your life, not f*** it up” via surprise Spanish food; there’s “no menu, you just eat the six courses he puts in front of you and relax and enjoy with a glass of one of his recommended wines... bliss”.

“Gerald never disappoints. No menu, just great food chosen and cooked the way he likes it and always fresh and filling”. That’s the surprise-menu formula at Gerald Maguire’s small independent, whose menu is described on its website as follows: ‘Some soup, Some Fish, Some Meat, Some Rice, Bread, Coffee…Something Sweet!’

A visit to this small, “friendly” indie in a townhouse is “great fun”: there’s “no menu, just what the chef (Gerald Maguire) feels like cooking, and cook he does!” (right next to diners). The “amazing food” takes in “small tapas-like dishes” and – as described on their website – might include ‘Some Soup, Some Fish, Some Meat, Some Rice, Bread, Coffee and Something Sweet’.

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).

"My go to restaurant for a terrific meal cooked by an inventive chef. Gerald takes the best fresh food daily and creates mouthwatering dishes, one after the other. No menu, he just decides what’s best to serve on the day. Good wine choices. Relaxed atmosphere."
