Latest review:

Worth all of the praise that's ever been heaped on it. I was lucky to catch the chef on a radio interview promoting her book celebrating the restaurants 30 year anniversary. This was just two weeks prior to my trip to London, so I was more fortunate still to find a table for 6 on a nice warm like spring evening. The building itself is beautiful. Stylishly simple, yet elegant. And the lovely grounds including a kitchen Garden flowing out to the Thames a few dozen yards away makes quite a bucolic setting in London. I hope you can take it in during the daylight on a warm day and enjoy the Terrace as much as we did. The food is famously simple and flavorful. They concentrate on fresh local ingredients and don't overcomplicate things. It's definitely worth the trip to this landmark spot.
