This fine dining restaurant in Chelsea is being run by a team with a very impressive background. The head chef is from Marcus Wareing, the pastry chef and sommelier were both at Tom Aikens and the chef patron/owner was at NYC's two Michelin starred Corton. Expect modern seasonal cooking which will pay "particular attention to Britain’s finest artisanal produce".

"With the praline and peaches, (the dessert) turned into a new flavour altogether, elusive but robust, perplexing but on some deep level familiar. “It does the opposite to what you expect, and forces you not just to enjoy it, but to confront how good it is,” was L’s verdict. Which, to varying degrees, was true of it all." READ REVIEW

"Not another reason to go to Chelsea. But it’s not because some of the off-kilter combinations currently being put out by the kitchen aren’t connecting – that might change; more that I don’t want to fine dine like it’s still 1999." READ REVIEW

"It’s all out of balance: the room, the dishes, the flavours, the menu. It’s such a waste of the technical skills and willing (and, it would appear, funds) collected here." READ REVIEW

"Main courses chosen — Dover sole, Cornish turbot, Yorkshire lamb and suckling pig — all belong to what we decide to call the Component School of Cooking. Most plates have the main item, a dab of sauce, a spume of foam, a flourish of leaves and a textural rubble of some sort — components, not comprehensible bedfellows." READ REVIEW

"It is worth going for the food, which is as good as I’ve eaten this year, but speak to your accountant first: he may be able to cut you a good deal on that second mortgage." READ REVIEW

"Careful sourcing of good ingredients is one thing, skill in cooking with them is another. The Five Fields is equally as accomplished at both. The pan-fried veal sweetbreads, slow-cooked venison, and suckling pig five ways on one dish were presented like artworks with an array of colourful and complementary garnishes." READ REVIEW

"This is the sort of restaurant which stands or falls by its food, so, in the end, we had a thoroughly flat experience. We really hate to say this, as it’s very likely that Bonnyman has put his heart and soul, and clearly a lot of money, into a venture which is as rare as it is – in so many ways – commendable."
