Our Inspector's view

Located in Knightsbridge's Berkeley Hotel since 2008, Marcus has proved itself eminently capable of punching above its weight, even for such a top establishment. The dining room's contemporary styling is an amalgam of rich, greyish patterned carpets, muted light glowing off burnished wood panelling, trendy prints, and tables laid with crisp white cloths, on which burn small tealights in smart opaque white glass bowls. Dining options are flexible, with a range offering light lunch up to eight-course tasting menus. The seasonal Taste of Spring tasting menu might feature slow-cooked egg with wild garlic and Mr Little's Yetholm Gypsy potato (named for the man who in 1899 allegedly introduced it to the Scottish Borders town); then skate roasted on the bone with chicken butter and sea vegetable; smoked pork cheek with piccalilli, and bacon broth; and mango, meadowsweet and yogurt. Wine flights come in two levels: Sommelier's Selection and, for an additional outlay, the Prestige Selection, both of course fully bearing out the AA's Notable Wine List award. The management makes a point of warning that, while there is no formal dress code, sportswear is unacceptable.

About the area

Discover London

The UK's capital was founded by the Romans shortly after they invaded in 43AD. Since then it’s evolved into one of the greatest cities on earth. From a bloody, squalid history to the vanguard of fashion in the Swinging 1960s to the buzzing metropolis it is today, London has something for everyone. There are very British pursuits like the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace and an impressive collection of traditional English pubs. And that’s not to mention world-renowned arts venues, galleries and museums, award-winning theatre and unrivalled shopping – all found within a few Tube stops of each other.

London’s royal history is not to be missed. Visitors can roam around one of Britain’s finest medieval castles and royal prison, and learn about the final days of Anne Boleyn at the Tower of London or, for the less bloodthirsty, visit the Queen’s London home, Buckingham Palace. Don’t miss out on exploring the capital’s Royal Parks – from St James’ Park and Hyde Park in the centre to the majestic Hampton Court and wilderness of Richmond Park in the southwest.
