Berners Tavern, the latest restaurant by chef and restaurateur, Jason Atherton is a gathering place for all day dining and entertaining, breakfast, lunch, dinner, tea and late supper. Located at The London EDITION Hotel, on Berners Street in central London’s Fitzrovia, the restaurant is accessible via a separate street entrance. Phil Carmichael, who has cooked with Jason for over ten years, is heading up the kitchen, creating a contemporary British menu, inspired by the traditions of Great Britain and featuring the very best produce that the British Isles has to offer. Sample dishes include Orkney scallop Carpaccio served with avocado, radish, jalapeño and lime; chargrilled quail served with Alsace bacon, smoked tomato jam, shallot and parsley; and grass fed Baccleuch estate cuts of beef cooked on a charcoal grill. Berners Tavern celebrates traditional and iconic British dishes including the heralded Sunday roast with fine cuts of Devon Red Red Ruby beef served with all the trimmings.

Berners Tavern is a good restaurant in a spectacular setting. Occupying a huge room inside the Edition Hotel, one is surrounded by pictures of all sorts, in every inch of wall, as if at The Hermitage. The menu is at times a bit much, but the eating is generally very good.

Hostess was impolite and completely incompetent. Arrived and she said I had no reservation but seated me anyway. Friend was meeting me turned out she seated them prior and then erased reso and when I arrived. Seated us at 2 different tables and after waiting 10 minutes and receiving a “seated confirmation” from Open Table (thank you!) I figured out the mistake they made. They were barely apologetic and manager did nothing to assuage the situation. Will never return.

The Berners Tavern is a fantastic venue with a great interior, most notably the wonderful ceiling. The service was great, attentive and friendly. Our dishes were well executed and my fish was cooked perfectly. Pudding was beautiful and the mint ice-cream was deliciously minty.
Overall a great night out.

The sommelier that served us was a delight. He made the evening that much more enjoyable. Unfortunately we didn’t catch a name but he was young and fun, and very engaging. He knew everything to know about wine. The 2 vegetarian options on the menu served it justice, the risotto was to die for. I would definitely come again.

The service was fantastic and as it was our daughters 18th Birthday they really made her feel special with a lovely little chocolate delight!!
I do feel the starters are overpriced and I would avoid these in future

Lovely restaurant with incredible paintings on every wall, beautifully decorated. Service was great and food well cooked and presented and tasty. It was a little pricey but well worth it and would go again and recommend highly.

Had a very nice time, Food is very pricey, but very good. Service was very good
The only thing it’s not a relaxing place and you can’t have a conversation as the music it’s VERY Loud. It would have been perfect if the music wasn’t to loud, so people don’t have to shout at each other

The food was very poor that we ordered from the menu, had the cod and wiener snitzel.
The fish was a tiny peice and the amount of sauces and ingredients took away from the ejoyabilty of the fish as it was overpowered by the multiple, strain taste.
The staff kept walking by and not paying attention to following up with our table.
Overall I can say I do not with to visit again, much better food in Holborn dining room for example and better value too.

We went here for an anniversary breakfast, before my husband’s business trip. The restaurant made it special by getting us a cake! It’s a small gesture, but it meant a lot! The ambiance is amazing, the food is good quality, and the service was great! Cant wait to come back!

Service and food were very good and I like the large airy room, but the wine list is far too expensive and would probably prevent me from returning.

Amazing food coupled with disappointing service. It’s become a bit of a production line in the last 12 months - they hard-sell you drinks, bring the bread out at the same time as the food, rush the courses and move you to the bar straight after your meal to tidy up for the next sitting. Not the sort of place to go if you want a proper, fine-dining experience. Cannot fault the food - in fact, the food is truly impeccable - but I feel like this place has become a victim of its own success.

We had the worst table in the restaurant right beside the kitchen entrance. Would ask for a different table if returning. Very loud therefore difficult to carry a conversation. Food was good and service very good.

Impressive interior, tasty food and great service.
Some items were on the pricey side, esp. on the wine list, but I suppose it's what one would expect for a restaurant of this standard.

Lovely room but could do with air conditioning being turned up. Service was very slow - 45mins and several requests required to take order. Fine once underway. Food varied between excellent (strawberry salad and burrata toast) good (chicken schnitzel) and disappointing (over salted, gristly roast beef). Accommodated 2 small children well.

I dined alone - and it was a fabulous experience. From the welcome to the service throughout to getting the check, it was a pleasure. The food was excellent, cooked to perfection, and the raspberry baked Alaska was simply amazing. The sommeliers and servers were all personable, highly capable, offering sound guidance when asked. The ambiance of the restaurant was very positive and dynamic. I struggle to find an area for improvement - the noise level might be a little high for those sensitive to that, but I noticed the couples on either side of me had no difficulty.
