Food, service and value really good and I would definitely go again. Only slight disappointment the positioning of a family with a baby next to us when there was there was plenty of available space elsewhere in the restaurant where they would not have disturbed us.

This restaurant was an unexpected treat! Their all day menu is comprehensive and reasonably priced. There was generous portions with smaller plates available. I really loved the decor and the service was impeccable. It also felt quite private. I am looking forward to my next visit. Than you GBR!

Good greeting on arrival Good and attentive service throughout. Good but uninspired menu. Oddly the starters were ‘small dishes’ of the mains but it worked for us. The food was good to very good. The jerusalem artichoke soup especially good. Wine list pricey and slightly limited. The dining room lacked atmosphere maybe because few people were dining maybe because of the decor.

Had a wonderful meal on Sunday 2 February. We had the two courses and the bottomless Prosecco deal.
Food was delicious, and I cannot fault the staff.
I was seriously impressed with the professionalism of their front of restaurant staff. Unfortunately, I have forgotten individuals, but if you were in on Sunday afternoon please accept my sincere thanks. Finally, I had a great conversation with the French young lady and she was a great ambassador for you all. Marvellous.

Great, perhaps just after Christmas isn’t the best time to judge ambiance as most restaurants are s little fiat in January. Gem of a fined. Unfortunately came last November and menu almost the same. Still enjoyed it though.

a very good reception when we arrived, a nice table, excellent, attentive service (Denisa was her name, I think), and the food was very good. Champagne and red wine very good. It was not a cheap bill but we had a very good time in a very nice environment.

Lovely restaurant in a discreet location just off Pall Mall near St James Palace.
The food was excellent. All our dishes were prepared just right.
Good value considering the location. I would consider revisiting.
Service was very good.

The food was great, but service was terrible. Other guests who ordered way after us, got their food much earlier than us. We had to wait for at least 30 minutes between courses.

I had vegan afternoon tea was terrible. Stodgy cakes, flavourless sandwiches & scones made of lead. They had none of the teas I requested from the extensive tea menu so I had English breakfast which was a bit boring. The standard (non vegan) afternoon tea my companions had wasn't much better. The service was poor too and the whole thing was extremely disappointing for me & my guests.

They were flexible with our timing as we were all delayed, which was appreciated and the food was very tasty and nice but the attentiveness of the staff was not great and we had to asked multiple times for our drinks and food.

This was one of the most amazing restaurants in a hotel I have been to. Lovely atmosphere which was quiet and relaxed. Food was so good and overall such an amazing afternoon meeting me friends for a last Christmas get together before we go away with our families. We are going back again in January. I can’t wait. Such a lovely Christmassy time. Ho Ho Ho 😊

Want to enjoy a rightly-famous Dukes Hotel martini? How about the most reasonably priced quality burger in St James's. GBR offers a modern, clean and smart location within Dukes. Service is excellent.

The food was good and the eggs royale are very tasty. However, they have an “offer” - 2 courses from £18. This is very misleading and isn’t an offer but just their menu prices which doesn’t mean anything. If we have to be precise it can be 2 courses from £16 as £8 each are the cheapest meals but I don’t think the idea of an offer is to just give me the menu pricing.

This restaurant was great! My coworkers and I were in London for a conference. This was our last night there and we wanted British food. The service was top-notch and the food was delicious. I only gave them a 4 because one of our platters had chips that were not cooked golden like everyone else’s. This was quickly resolved by management. I highly recommend this place.

Excellent , unobtrusive service. Great for a peaceful evening with reliably good food - just enough of a twist in the menu to make it interesting without being flashy. A really enjoyable experience - to be repeated, I hope.

Seven of use went to celebratory lunch at Duke's. There were a few last minute changes to numbers, which the staff took in their stride, indeed the service overall was lovely. Most of us had the haggis scotch egg to start , which was fine though perhaps a little bland - haggis is better with plenty of pepper and a touch of spice. I had the lamb which was cooked to perfection, the right shade of pink and very soft. However apart from three small chips and a handful of barley there were no vegetables, and this went for the other meals as well. As we were eating from the Market menu I expected something green. The cheeseboard was good, the right amount, excellent crackers and served at the right temperature, and those who had the lemon meringue pie were most impressed. The restaurant was very pleasant, and quiet enough for conversation, which is a nice change in London. I will be going back.

Beautiful Ambience - tasteful decor, candle lit, quiet - a real gem tucked away in central London

Friendly service

Delicious menu at brilliant value with their offer. We enjoyed a cocktail, glass of wine and 3 course meal for £50 each- rare in green park around the corner from Mayfair
