Gordon Ramsay’s new venture looks well set to break the chain of restaurant failures on this Battersea Square site. The central space, with its dominating bar, might seem somewhat soulless, but the main dining action takes place in a warren of rooms to the side, holding four or five tables apiece. Clean-lined monochrome furnishings match the City suits and ties of the clientele, and customers seem at ease – whether they’re conducting business or romance.

Venison is cured, then smoked and served with a deep, rich celeriac purée. Beautifully cooked, tender beef fillet arrives with potato gnocchi filled with slow-cooked beef cheek. Stay for dessert – especially the chocolate tart with Jerusalem artichoke.

Up until recently he's hit the London press yet again, this time with the opening of London House in Battersea - and a new haircut, which frankly looks as though he had an encounter with a tiny lawn mower...
