SquareMeal Silver Awards

SquareMeal Silver Awards, our second-highest award, are given to ‘excellent’ restaurants and bars that we find ourselves constantly recommending as being among the best in the area.

Updated on 01 August 2019

Silver awards are given to only a few establishments and are an assessment of the full experience: food – first and foremost – combined with ambience, service and value. SquareMeal’s Awards reflect a combination of professional critic opinion and current feedback from SquareMeal users/diners. As such, they reveal at a glance how strongly SquareMeal is recommending a restaurant or bar.

AOK Kitchen and Bakery

AOK Kitchen and Bakery

52-55 Dorset Street, London, London, W1U 7NQ

This all-day bar, restaurant and bakery owes a lot to sunshine, as its dishes are inspired by the sun-soaked shores of California and the Mediterranean.

The chic setting features marble floors and hand-painted silk wallpaper, while the seasonally changing menu is just as on-trend, being completely free from refined sugar and with limited amounts of dairy and gluten. Things kick off at breakfast with the likes of acai and coconut bowls, or blueberry pancakes topped with organic maple syrup and fresh berries.

Later in the day, you can snack on crudités served with a vinaigrette dip or colourful salads, while more substantial dishes include seabass ceviche, gluten-free gnocchi and barbecue lamb chops. Even the drinks menu has health-conscious diners in mind, with the offering including cocktails infused with fresh juices. 

If you’re looking for a doggy bag, head downstairs to the on-site bakery, which serves a daily selection of pastries alongside a variety of speciality breads. The bakery offers dairy and gluten-free takes on classic baked goods, while custom bakes can also be ordered for special occasions.

This relaxed fine dining restaurant at The Town Hall Hotel in Bethnal Green is overseen by Spanish chef Paulo Airaudo, who already runs a Michelin-starred restaurant called Amelia in San Sebastiàn. Replacing the critically-acclaimed Typing Room, the food menu at Da Terra is inspired by Latin America and Italy, while there is also an on-site bar.

The space has a history of producing critically lauded restaurants: as well as formerly housing Typing Room, the hotel was also home to Viajante, which positioned Nuno Mendes as one of the most exciting chefs in London.

No. Fifty Cheyne

No. Fifty Cheyne

50 Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, London, SW3 5LR

Formerly known as Cheyne Walk Brasserie, this long-standing Chelsea eatery now goes by the name of No. Fifty Cheyne, following an extensive refurbishment. Set across two floors and overlooking the Thames, No. Fifty features a ground-floor dining room which seats around 70, and an upstairs cocktail bar and ‘drawing room’ with space for a further 50 guests.

The restaurant serves a modern British menu which is centred on an open grill, with the kitchen headed up by chef Iain Smith (previously head chef at Jason Atherton’s Social Eating House). Dishes to try include the likes of belted Galloway beef ragout with spatzli, spicy sausage and rose harissa, or Cornish monkfish, roscoff onion and potato straws with roast chicken broth. On Sundays, guests have the option to pre-order their favourite Sunday roast, cooked especially for them – options include a whole suckling pig, a rib of beef or a whole salmon.

Darby

Darby's

3 Viaduct Gardens, Vauxhall, London, SW11 7AY

Irish chef Robin Gill has already made a name for himself with his restaurants including Sorella and Counter Culture (both in Clapham), but this is his biggest project to date.

Comprising an oyster bar, bakery and grill restaurant, Darby’s is found on the ground floor of Embassy Gardens Towers, a retail/residential development neighbouring the new U.S. Embassy. The restaurant sits beneath the SkyPool, an outdoor swimming pool suspended 35 metres in the air between two residential towers.

Open from breakfast, Darby’s serves up pastries and hot breakfasts to early risers, including a ‘full Irish’ and a sourdough sandwich stuffed with bacon and brown sauce. Lunchtimes offer a selection of sandwiches, while come the evening, guests can either sit at the oyster bar to try a selection of fine Irish seafood, or opt for the grill.

Dishes to try include Brixham wild turbot, pork with a caramelised apple glaze, and beef with Worcester sauce and mustard. Desserts are just as tempting, featuring tonka bean gelato and Pump Street chocolate mousse with caramelized croissant gelato. Thirsty? Choose from a selection of poitin-infused cocktails, draught Guiness and Champagnes.

Medlar

438 King's Road, London, London, SW10 0LJ

Medlar has been a popular choice of the Chelsea crowd for a quick lunch or relaxed dinner since it opened in 2011. Headed up by chef Joe Mercer Nairne (whose CV boasts time at The Savoy Grill and Chez Bruce) and David O'Connor (a talented restaurant manager with experience that includes The Ledbury), this is a neighbourhood restaurant with an above-average offering. Open seven days a week, the restaurant serves three, three-course at various price points – lunch is £35, dinner is £53 and Sunday evenings set you back £35. While the style is French with international influences, it still manages to make good use of produce from the British Isles, ensuring seasonality is always championed. For those with a penchant for a savoury over a pudding, rejoice, Medlar’s cheeseboard is one of the best in London – packed with offerings from small-scale producers who have been carefully sourced from all over the world.

Transport links from the nearby underground station and local taxis are readily available too.

The boathouse steak restaurant has a waterside terrace for an enviable dose of alfresco dining with a view of one of London’s oldest Plane trees. The restaurant boasts a stunning 360 view of Richmond Bridge and Petersham Meadows from its panoramic glass windowing. Order a superb bottle of Argentina Barbera red while you watch the sun go down and wait for your Pampas-reared cut of beef to arrive with a peppercorn sauce and humitas. Or if you fancy a different pairing, Gaucho has an extensive list of some of the best Argentinian bottles, including their own collection from the Mendoza region, plus some fantastic international wines from France, Spain, and more.

The food is on another level at this steakhouse, with sumptuous prime cuts of well-sourced beef and regional delights such as crumbly, buttery empanadas and ceviches. The meats come in a wonderful variety of cuts and weights, or you can opt to share a platter of meats for the table. For dessert, treat yourself to a dulce de leche pudding.

Gaucho is an excellent choice for prime steak dining amongst friends or colleagues, those special occasions that you need a memorable feast to level up, or simply to treat yourself. Whatever the occasion, Gaucho Richmond has a stunning dining room for patrons, or you can choose an event space, and there is also the option to exclusively hire the entire restaurant to comfortable seat 150 guests.

The Ivy Chelsea Garden

The Ivy Chelsea Garden

197 King's Road, Chelsea, London, SW3 5ED

Based on the King’s Road, the Chelsea offshoot of Thy Ivy is suitably decadent for its smart location. Housed in an impressive Georgian townhouse with a façade featuring three ornate bay windows, The Ivy Chelsea Gardens offers a sense of real occasion when it comes to both the ambience and the food offering.


The interior is made up of various different areas including a bar, a lounge, an orangery, and a huge garden out the back. The lounge is typical of all Ivy restaurants with its colourful décor, large booths and art hanging on all the walls – a great spot to enjoy a special meal or celebration. The garden however offers a real escape from the busy streets of Chelsea with greenery as far as the eye can see; the cushion-topped benches and chairs make it an idyllic al fresco dining destination during the summer.


The classic food offering begins in the morning with a breakfast menu which features dishes varying from pastries, to scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, to a full English breakfast depending on whether you want to start your day with a big meal or not. For the remainder of the day, the all-day menu provides well-cooked European comfort food.


For starters you might opt for a shellfish cocktail or perhaps a steak tartare. Main courses vary from a chicken Milanese to the signature Ivy shepherd’s pie. Options also include a selection of steaks as well as a short sandwich menu for a slightly lighter bite. If you still have room for something sweet, the dessert menu includes everything from crème brûlée to a blackberry ice cream sundae. There are vegan and vegetarian options available for every course too.

The drinks menu features a large list of wines by the glass and bottle as well as an impressive selection of cocktails.

The Ivy Kensington Brasserie

The Ivy Kensington Brasserie

96 Kensington High Street, Kensington, London, W8 4SG

The Kensington branch of The Ivy Brasserie suitably sits right on Kensington High Street and, as you would expect, it fits in seamlessly with the other smart Kensington establishments around it. Serving easy-to-like dishes throughout the whole day, The Ivy Brasserie Kensington is a great spot to visit whether just for a relaxed breakfast with friends or a special family occasion.


Whilst the restaurant isn’t as outrageously swanky as some of the other Ivy outposts, The Ivy Kensington Brasserie maintains the typical air of class that Ivy restaurants have always been associated with. Large spherical lights hang from the ceiling and the shiny tiled floor is typical of a traditional brasserie, but there is still a long, gleaming bar as well at the classic, colourful Ivy chairs. As is the case with all Ivy restaurants, it’s a great setting to enjoy the crowd-pleasing food.


The huge all-day menu offers all the classics that you could hope for including tempura prawns and duck liver parfait as starters. Main course offerings range from lobster linguini and a sweet potato curry, to the signature Ivy shepherd’s pie. There’s also something for everyone on the dessert menu, with dishes including rum baba and passionfruit baked Alaska. If you’re feeling like something a little lighter to eat, there is a range of sandwiches available until 5pm too.


You can also come to the Ivy Kensington Brasserie for breakfast where you’ll find dishes such as hot buttermilk pancakes and ham and cheese omelette on the menu. Or if you’re in the area in between meals there’s always the option to have the classic Ivy afternoon tea for £21.50 per person.


An equally large selection of drinks accompanies the huge range of food available; wine, cocktails, specially brewed beer, coffee – you name it, they have it.
