Need help choosing between Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, Alain Ducasse, The Square, and Gavroche

Hello Hounds.

I'm trying to finalize my London itinerary and need help picking my last dinner. I've already booked The Ledbury for dinner, and Dinner by Heston and St John for lunch.

I have a reservation for Gordon Ramsay but I could only get a 10pm seating. Is it worth it to keep the 10pm reservation at Gordon Ramsay or should I cancel for an earlier reservation at one of the places I listed in the title and if so which one? Thanks.

  1. Personally, I would go for The Square. But that's just my opinion and you may get five differing ones. Who to believe?

    1. hello I have eaten at RHR but it was many years ago, I was at the Square a couple of years ago and I much preferred it. Havn't been to the other two. I much preferred the Square, still quite formsl but maybe the food was a bit more exciting and although still had top quality luxury ingredients used them more inventively.

      1. I would also choose The Square. My annual trips to London always include The Square as well as The Ledbury. I also love Roganic.

          I would also definitely go for The Square which has by far the most interesting food.

          Ps Nancy we had a great meal at Septime last week.

            Thanks for the replies. I'm going to try out The Square, they also have tables at resonable times which is another plus.

              Great let us know how you get on. I have to say I think it'd have been weird sitting down at Gordon Ramsay at 10pm.

              Not sure if it appeals but Philip Howard's signature must be the crab lasagne which you should try if it sounds like something you'd like. Nancy goes frequently so can probably give more up to date menu advice.

        2. It will be interesting you to hear what you make of the Ledbury and the Square. We went to the Ledbury last year, it was less formal, and very busy, I chose well and was very happy, my companions slightly underwhelmed. I prefer the Square overall.

          1. Check out Gautier, we had a spectacular dinner there recently. Also, with all this haute dining, why not check out the great gastropub, Harewood Arms, in Richmond?
