Main course - Sunday roast - was excellent as usual, but the starters were a bit too all-day brunchy so we couldn't be tempted unfortunately.

Utterly ridiculous wine list. 34 pages long most over £100 a. bottle. And this at lunch. Wont be going back just for that alone. And I used to go a lot.

I had a 9 hour lunch there! The staff were great the whole time, the food was extremely good, but priced accordingly. The cocktails were excellent and the staff extremely obliging.

The background music was louder than necessary and caused the overall noise level to rise.
Given the pandemic I would have preferred to see tables spaced out more but staff were wearing masks and guests were provided with hand wipes.
Restaurant is beautiful and the service was impeccable!

Berners Tavern provides a relaxed service but in an atmospheric dining room. Great food, and a brilliant wine list that's always expertly explained by the sommelier. Looking forward to another visit soon,

Sunday Lunch at the Berners was a regular venue for us pre-COVID-19.
So we’re delighted it‘s finally back.
The adjustments made to comply with social distancing meant the atmosphere isn’t quite the same. And the menus had been reduced to a single set menu.
BUT
the food was way better than we remembered....the Steak Tartare starter was exceptional.
And the service was absolutely top notch. Friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.
My only gripe remains the grossly overpriced wine list, which seemed even more overpriced than before.
Still, it doesn’t do any harm having an alcohol free lunch!

Loved it. Exceptional service. Only very slight negative was that we mentioned that it was our sons 21st birthday when we phoned to confirm booking and when we arrived. We thought a little nod to this at dessert time would have been nice.
We had a fantastic meal and the ambience was wonderful. Highly recommend

There was not many food options, all pricy and average in taste. Also, the price for any wine was astonishingly high. The high sealing dining room was beautiful and had good lively atmosphere though social distancing attempt was close to minimum. Disappointing.

My friend had to sudden leave mid-meal and the waiters were so discrete about it. Because we couldn’t finish our meals we got the drinks for free and they handled the situation with such a great care! Will definitely be back!

Exceptional venue for a Saturday night dinner in London. Certainly lived up to expectations from the decor, to the service and the amazing food/drinks. Everything was spot on and couldn’t fault them, definitely worth the significant outlay for a table of 2. Made for a very special evening and one we will remember

A lovely restaurant that tries to be more than what it offers. The steak was average, though well cooked. The service was OK but not overly attentive. The dinner was good, not great - and the expectation when you walk in is set very high.
