Strand Dining Rooms closes

The Strand Dining Rooms, in London's Trafalgar Square, has closed.

The all-day restaurant, owned by Mark Harris, opened in 2014 to poor reviews, including a single star review from Telegraph critic Matthew Norman.

In 2015, Mark Sergeant was named chef director of the venue in a bid to turn around its reputation, launching a new menu in April of that year.

However, the restaurant closed earlier this month. A statement on its website read: "It is with deepest regret we move into the New Year and announce that we have served our last meal and closed our doors at the Strand Dining Room.

"It has been an amazing journey over the last 2 years, we have met some wonderful guests and had the opportunity to celebrate birthdays, throw office parties, witness business deals struck over breakfast, raise glasses to successes and downed cocktails in commiseration with people we now call friends, however it is now time to say goodbye and move on to the next chapter.

"We would like to thank all of our guest but especially our regulars and neighbours who have supported us throughout our tenure and made working at The Strand Dining Rooms so rewarding. We wish you all the very best."
