A sleek and sophisticated restaurant in the heart of Chelsea, The Five Fields is all ivory leather seats, pale hardwood floors, abstract art and designer light fittings. Staff are highly professional, serving a tasting menu that changes seasonally and is dictated entirely by the produce that comes in daily from the kitchen garden. The cooking is inventive and precise, offering incredibly complex, detailed and beautifully presented dishes with masterful balance and impressive technical skills. Each dish on the either the tasting, set or lunch (on Saturdays only) menus is headed with one word followed by a very short explanation to guide you. Perhaps it might be ‘Asparagus’ – new season’s spears with buttermilk and chervil, or ‘Lobster’ – roasted tail with kohlrabi. Next up might be ‘Lamb’ – saddle with potato and wild garlic dumpling, slow-roasted shoulder and ewe’s cheese, or ‘Turbot’ – darne with brassica brown butter and spring cabbage. Finish with ‘Strawberry’ – tart with whey caramel and strawberry sorbet. To accompany, there's a massive wine list with a hugely helpful sommelier on hand.

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.
