About Square Meal


For 22 years Square Meal has been the market-leading independent restaurant commentator, with up-to-date reviews of 5,000 London and UK restaurants and bars, written by a team of independent critics with the aid of comments from thousands of restaurant customers. The site is updated throughout the year. Restaurants do not pay for inclusion.

A multi-platform publishing service

Square Meal has print, mobile and online platforms, which means an active pre-registered member database of people who qualify to receive a printed annual guide, a quarterly restaurant and lifestyle magazine and e-newsletters. Additionally users can download our apps.

The Square Meal community

The Square Meal community of high-spend restaurant goers is unequalled in the UK. Square Meal is the major provider of à la carte restaurant bookings in the country – its users make reservations by telephone, email and online booking. The value of restaurant reservations through Square Meal is estimated to exceed £150m a year.

Square Meal printed publications

As well as squaremeal.co.uk, printed versions of the Square Meal Restaurants & Bars Guide and Venues & Events Guide are published by Monomax Ltd. These are free to qualifying executives in Central London. Alternatively they are available direct from the publishers or www.amazon.co.uk. The guides are priced at £9.95.

Venues & Events

Square Meal’s Venues & Events is a multi-platform service that provides bookers with all they need to know about events space in London and the UK. Its audience is kept up-to-date with what’s hot, what’s new and what’s generally good through on-line news pages, weekly e-newsletters, a popular magazine and regular reader events. Its exhibition attracts 7,000 bookers to Old Billingsgate, EC4 in September every year. And its annual guide book has a circulation of 100,000.

The Venues & Events channel on squaremeal.co.uk has a huge and growing database of venues both in London and throughout the UK. The Square Meal free helpline (020 7840 6299) handles over £5m of venue & corporate entertainment enquiries annually.


Square Meal’s other sister brand Imbibe is the market-leading multi-platform drinks information service for the UK on-trade.
