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.

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.

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.

Norma

8 Charlotte Street, Fitzrovia, London, W1T 2LS

This Sicilian-inspired restaurant is overseen by chef Ben Tish, who previously ran the Salt Yard group and is now culinary director of The Stafford London hotel.

Norma is split across three floors, with the ground floor a restaurant, the first floor a cocktail bar and the top floor a private dining space. You’ll also spy a crudo bar at the restaurant’s entrance, which will serve up fresh seafood dressed in olive oil.

The menu features Sicilian-inspired dishes made using seasonal Italian and British produce – think antipasti and pastas, followed by grilled meat and fish dishes. Those dining in the private space can order family-style sharing platters, while the main restaurant stays open until 10.30pm.

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.

Outlaw's at The Capital

The Capital Hotel , Knightsbridge, London, SW3 1AT

Set within the five-star Capital Hotel just a stone’s throw from Harrods, this new restaurant exudes classic British hospitality, from the setting through to the menus and staff. Visitors will find The Restaurant at The Capital ideally located for lunch following a morning’s sightseeing around Knightsbridge, while hotel guests, residents and Londoners who fancy a taste of the high life might like to stop in for dinner. Either way, there’s something for everyone at this smart eatery.

As is de rigeur, The Restaurant at The Capital relies heavily upon independent local suppliers and farmers for its ingredients, which are then carefully crafted into classic British dishes by Head Chef Adam Simmonds and his team. In order to showcase the freshest seasonal produce and newest creations from the kitchen, the menus change frequently, but an idea of the kinds of dishes you might encounter on your visit include oysters with cucumber, English wasabi and lardo or veal sweetbreads with watercress, lemon and liquorice to start, and the likes of salt-aged duck with grapefruit, turnip and fennel, or John Dory with curd, cuttlefish, kohlrabi and caviar to follow.

Desserts such as elderflower ice cream with blossom honey, oats and yogurt, and white chocolate brownie with peanut parfait and cocoa sorbet ought not to be missed, though if you’re in the mood for something savoury, a British cheese plate should do the trick. A seven-course tasting menu affords a treat for those looking to splash out, while the set lunch menu is ideal for corporate lunches or anyone struggling to choose a la carte.  

A very impressive collection of wines, many from small artisan producers rounds off the dining experience nicely, so whether you allow the team to guide you to a bottle to share, or opt for a carefully-curated wine flight to accompany your meal, you’re sure to land on something delicious.

Pitt Cue

Pitt Cue

Soho, London,

Pitt Cue Co would make for a great X Factor contestant, as the barbecue restaurant has been on quite the ‘journey’ in the last few years. Originally starting life as a street food stall, Pitt Cue opened a permanent bricks-and-mortar site on Soho’s Newburgh Street in 2012. Three years later, founders Jamie Berger and Tom Adams sold the concept and the new owners decide to relocate the restaurant from its Soho shoebox to an airy dining room on Devonshire Square.

However, the relocation was not a success, with the restaurant seemingly closing its doors for good in early 2019, with the endless building work taking place around the area said to have led to a decrease in footfall. Now though, Pitt Cue has made a return after Berger bought back the intellectual property rights to the brand. Berger plans to move the restaurant back to its Soho roots, but a site for the revived Pitt Cue has not yet been officially announced.

Fans of the restaurant will remember its three key principles of barbecue, bourbon and beer. Pitt Cue served a short and concise menu, which took provenance seriously – all beef was sourced from a single Cornish supplier, while bread was baked in-house. Highlights from the menu at the time included crisp ‘scrumpet’, which saw a pork-filled disc fried in breadcrumbs and served with a slick of apple sauce, while we were also impressed by mushroom and bone marrow mash. Pitt Cue was also well known for friendly service and reasonable prices, while the drinks list featured the likes of Mezcal, Martinis and Bourbons.

Before the announcement of the new permanent location, Berger will host a series of pop ups across the capital, which he’s calling ‘Flesh Mobs’. These one-off events will see Pitt Cue handing out hordes of free, meat-filled buns at locations across the capital.
