Absolutely one of the most stunning meals I’ve had in a long time, the presentation was exquisite and flavours and ideas were fabulous. Our waiter was extremely attentive and we loved the pace of the serving of the meal was just right. Will definitely return soon

An amazing evening with beautifully presented and delicious food - each dish a complete work of art but also a brilliant fusion of flavours. My only negative is that I cannot endorse restaurants serving foie gras (and it was rather more expensive than we expected). Otherwise, highly recommended

An outstanding dining experience . Attentive , friendly staff who were able to explain the menu expertly and give extra information about the produce and cooking methods used . The attention to detail in each dish of the tasting menu is exceptional with a variety of techniques and eating experiences. The unique crockery just adds to the meal.

Five Fields was the last night of our vacation in Europe and it was the best of all the meals we had, and when we travel I do my homework on restaurants.

The restaurant has a prix fixe menu for 80 pounds and a tasting menu for 95. The tasting menu looked great but we opted for the prix fixe since we had a late lunch.

The service is impeccable. Always being there to attend to you.
The food is equally great. We had foie gras and red mullet as our appetizers.
We had mutton which was amazing, and I had Brill, which was cooked perfectly.

The offer a cheese course, but its extra. We did not know that at the time, so paid the extra 15 pounds, some table knew it was extra and passed on it.

Our dessert was the cherry with chocolate.
It comes on 3 or 4 small plates to combine the experience.

We had dined at many nice 1-2 stars, but never a three star. At 80 pounds for dinner for one of the best in London, it seemed like a great deal, which it was.

London can be an expensive city, but compared to our last trip, Tokyo, it was reasonable

Reservations are taken 6 weeks prior to booking. If you are planning a trip there it is a great choice.

First time at Five Fields and was taken on a wonderful journey from start to finish. The Saturday prix fixe menu hints at only 3 courses but this couldn’t be further from the truth! After a sequence of delicious snacks our starters came in 4 selected components, each more amazing than the last. The cooking is thoughtful, perfectly executed and makes the most of British seasonality. Deserts were luxurious yet not overwhelming. Will be back again very soon...!

We had an amazing dinner at The Five Fields. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff & the food was outstanding (not to mention a visual delight). It thoroughly deserves its reputation. You get so many nibbles, amuse bouches etc so I feel the set menu price of £80 pp is actually excellent value. I can not recommend it highly enough.

Tasting menu with matched wines. Very creative presentations, and playful use of flavor profiles. Many of the items had quite bold flavors, but quite acceptable in bite size portions. One of the best Foie Gras courses we have had among a number of high end restaurants. The eel was perfect and paired well with a pleasant Sake. The sommelier here is extremely knowledgable and seems to have an intuitive understanding of some of the very unique wine matching. The Canary Islands wine a pleasant surprise. Overall, a highly recommended gourmand experience.

Treat yourself to an outstanding meal at this amazing restaurant. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left over three hours later, everything was sublime. It's not cheap, but it is worth every penny. Well done everyone at The Five Fields for making such delicious food and a truly memorable experience.

Overall dishes are good but don’t give you a “wow” strong impression dishes & tasty memory. Love the presentation of foie gras, the sauces for short ribs & cod were slightly salty. Chocolate & whisky dessert was good, the raspberry & yogurt needs to be improved especially the raspberry cake was so so.

I have been a few times to this restaurant and always love some of it but not all. The service is good and the amuse bouches mostly good but I didn’t like the cheese/carrot soup combo. The foi gras starter was unbelievable to start with the lovely pickled veg but my main was a bit disappointing. It was for deer with black truffle and TBH I wasn’t impressed with the black truffle shavings, they just didn’t seem pungent enough. The jus was also very salty which is never good. I tasted a couple of my fellow diners deserts and they were ok. We had a great value tortontes to start then a good Priorat so wine was good. Overall I’m not rushing back and with so many ‘special occasion’ restaurants now in London, I’m not sure whether five fields lives up to the mark?

Amazing in-house Irish Soda Bread and Sourdough bread at the beginning promised a great meal to come. However, to my taste, half of the food was over seasoned and the other half was unmemorable. Hopefully, this was just a night off.

The ambiance , food and service were all excellent. Everything was beautifully presented and the service was as would expect from a restaurant of this level. The starter, Morels three ways and dessert, the pineapple baba were outstanding and the wine list very interesting and not dominated by very expensive French wines but with some reasonably priced unusual wines from the rest of Europe, the sommelier was very helpful.

I will definitely return and next time try the tasting menu with matching wines.

They gave us the best table in the restaurant, looking out on the entire place, a comfy sofa sitting next to each other facing out. We had the tasting menu and wine pairings, service was excellent and the food was incredible- id say 2 star quality without a doubt. The restaurant has a nice relaxed ambiance and is intimate and lovely. My 3rd time and I will definitely be going back again and again!

Been going to 5 field for the last 3 years. Service is usually relaxed and friendly, Saturday was robotic.

Also, despite recognising my nut allergy and changing my dessert for a fantastic rum baba, they decided to bring us a nut covered chocolate to celebrate our anniversary, apologising that they had nothing without nuts.

Nothing would have been more useful

A beautiful and intimate room, tables nicely spaced for privacy whilst still feeling part of the overall environment. Very friendly and welcoming front of house. Food all presented delightfully and tasting delicious with deep flavouring. Lovely canapés, first cod mousse in a light crisp wafer tube, then ham hock and piccalilli dumplings with a drop of dill mayonnaise, were perfect alongside our aperitif, a delicate and elegant Nyetimber rosé. We were then also served a clever and tasty amuse-bouche of a cheese custard topped with iirc a little carrot and a duck jus. Starters were complex with contrasting flavour combinations. I took the "Sea and Earth", five small dishes with interesting pairings such as an oyster accompanied by a couple of tiny (wild?) strawberries, new season asparagus with razor clam, and finely cut squid with truffle (the stand-out flavour pairing afaic). My companion had the Morel, the mushrooms cooked beautifully three ways, with celeriac, with monk's beard and with offal (amazing). Alongside these, a 2017 Condrieu Les Terrasses du Palat from the Northern Rhone was crisp, clean and dry with characteristic viognier aroma, although possibly a couple of years too young to show at its best. We went down the meat route for mains with mutton for me and roe deer for my companion. Both were prepared perfectly, pink and tender, with unusual accompanying elements that delivered on both complementary flavours and contrasting textures. A 2005 Viña Tondonia Reserve from Rioja was rich and silky and I highly recommend it as exceptional value by the glass. For dessert, I chose the spiced pear with ginger and hazelnut, topped with a spiced apple foam, which was joyously indulgent, and my companion had the apple with strawberry and fennel, which looked fabulous and which she declared tasted fabulous as well. A glass of the honeyed 2014 Renaissance Vendanges Tardives from Gaillac set these desserts off a treat. Overall, a memorable meal in a lovely restaurant.

Service from the front of house to the sommelier was very good but the quality of the food has let it down unfortunately. At that price point, you can definitely get better food and just as good a service at other fine establishments.

Utterly faultless: service, food, ambience and the beautiful wine list. Intimate venue that manages to strike the balance between cosy yet fine dining. Sea and Earth starter is a stroke of genius, always love trying its various forms. Ingenious menu, excellent yet unobtrusive service. A firm favourite. Thank you!
