    Square Meal Says…

    Skilled staff (a hallmark of all Jason Atherton’s ventures) are also kept busy filleting “exquisite” Dover soles and parading London’s only pork pie trolley replete with eight piquant pickles and mustards. If you’re not here for the widely feted breakfast, the bar does a great line in bitters and botanicals – perfect with desserts such as cherry and pistachio Alaska, flambéed at your table. The wine list has real depth for those with pockets to match.

    I visited twice, once for Friday night dinner, once for a mid-week business lunch, and found the food pretty much faultless. The menu, like the pictures on the walls, covers everything; it's a salon hang, crowded with sharing platters and grills, Sunday roasts and dude-foodish sandwiches, elegant seafood dishes and Friday fish and chips...Grown-up and gorgeous as the Berners Tavern is, this Schrager-bomb of a restaurant won't suit everyone. But for a statement of the swaggering confidence of London's world-class dining scene, it is, as Bridget would say, v v good indeed.

    Time Out Says…

    Edition is an exercise in slick metropolitan taste, with opulent chandeliers, framed art-by-the-yard covering entire walls, and improbably elegant staff. The huge lobby bar looks fabulous; but the vast dining room, with its ornate plasterwork ceiling, very low lighting and lively bar area, looks even better. The menu’s prices are alarmingly high – but most of the dishes we tried were very good...Berners Tavern is an utterly glamorous experience.
