Third visit to Alyn Williams and we've booked again for December which says it all really. Various menus to suit a wide range of spend so it neednt be too expensive however the tasting menu with pairing wines is so so good. The team are friendly, unobtrusive and informative. The setting is extremely relaxing. A great time as always!

Having booked rather last minute for a friends 30th Birthday I was guided purely by the reviews i had seen on here. I am delighted to report that they couldn't have been more accurate! It really was a fantastic experience from start to finish. The staff just can't do enough for you and are so friendly, and as for the food.... truly wonderful. We had opted for the 5 course bespoke menu and we really struggled to pick a favourite course due to the excellence of them all, and they were all so wonderfully different. As mentioned it was my friends 30th so they even brought out an extra dessert with 'Happy Birthday' which was a lovely touch. We even had a visit into the kitchen where the chefs greeted us so warmly with the head chef taking time out to really welcome our opinion of the menu and give us a bit of back story to the establishment.
All in all, and unforgettable experience and i will certainly be returning.

Booked the restaurant at late notice and was not disappointed - 5 course bespoke menu with Prosecco. No menu just asked if any allergies or dislikes and then explained each dish as served. Staff were attentive and engaging and the food and little extras were all well prepared, presented and tasty. Excellent value taking in the whole meal. Even a little extra desert as it was our anniversary.

I had an exceptionally nice dinner at Alyn Williams with my friend celebrating her birthday. We picked the five course bespoke menu and each course was elegantly presented and mouthwatering. The use of color and fresh herb really made each of the dishes pop, and elevated the taste level. The service was also excellent. Meeting the head chef and getting a peak of the kitchen at the end of our meal really just the cherry on top. I will return to this restaurant again with my family.

Outstanding.
Had lunch at Alyn Williams on Saturday and really could not fault it. Went for the 5 course bespoke tasting menu which was not only exquisite, but also excellent value at £65 per person with a glass of prosecco. Service was excellent with waiters being very attentive but not overly intrusive.
To summarize, top class food, competitively priced, in a lovely setting with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
Don't think you need much else!

Third time visit and this place just gets better. I would say that it's under-rated since it is better than Marcus Waring or Gordon Ramsay's. Tom has a bright future.

We were concerned on arrival at what looked a very short menu, however we could mix & match & enjoyed a professional & beautifully presented dinner, including 2 amuse bouche!
The attention to detail & presentation of each course was magnificent. Also an amazing wine list with a competent Somellier.
A most enjoyable evening. Thank You.

Quite simply an excellent restaurant with innovative menu and dishes. Lots of cooking that shows great skill and flair of kitchen staff. The service was fantastic, very attentive perfectly timed, ie when leaving to visit the bathroom and between courses. Excellent sommelier who provided wonderful matched wines. Very reasonably priced wine list, ie between 30-40 pound for very decent wine. Fantastic crockery for each dish. Overall excellent value for money and a lovely experience. Would recommend for advance level foodies but also for those curious to try cutting edge British fine dining cuisine

From the moment we entered the restaurant we were met with a warm welcome. We ordered the 5 course tasting menu which was not only superb value but each course was well thought out and exceptionally tasty.

We were invited into the kitchen where we met the head chef Tom whom for someone so young is extremely talented.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Can’t wait to go back.

Visited whilst on 50th wedding anniversary trip from Australia. Food delicious with lovely presentation. Staff ever so friendly and accommodating. Recommended wine really complimented the dishes, the ingredients of which were fully explained. Extra small touches that included a complimentary anniversary dessert and copy of our menu with personal message, were really appreciated. And finally, the staff offered us a tour of the kitchen and were then prepared to pose for a photographic memory. Congratulations to Tom and all the staff. A night for us to remember.

Everything was outstanding, especially so the service, super attentive serving staff, made us feel special!
The young lady noticed that our daughter-in-law gave the foie gras canape a miss so brought extra of other canapes for her, thank you!
Thank you to everyone for making it a fun and relaxing family evening for us!!

What a novelty it was to find a Michelin starred chef actually in his kitchen cooking, as opposed to cultivating a celebrity profile on TV! Happily I was invited to meet the good Mr Williams and was able to tell him personally, besides affirming how flawless I'd found his team's cooking that evening. A five-course mystery menu with a glass of decent Prosecco for £65 is good value at a venue such as this. But it was more like eight courses if one counts the various amuse-bouches and complimentary intermediate bites. I opted for a different wine for each course; inevitably this doubled the bill but worth it to enjoy better matches. As I was unappraised of what was to follow, I enlisted the steerage of the excellent sommelier. He ensured any recommendations were apt to accompany the food, and were within my justifiable price range. A rather dark and oppressive decor, but nonetheless atmospheric for it. And the Westbury is undeniably a smart hotel and suitable setting for this Mayfair gem. Skip the celeb factor and come here instead for your fine dining needs!

We had the 5 course menu, every course was absolutely delicious. Probably one of the more stand out meals I’ve ever had the pleasure of.
It was a very quiet lunch dining room: I mean painfully so. One old chap was asleep at his table!
