Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
“You do take pot luck not only on the menu (which depends upon what is fresh on the farm) but also on the companions sharing your table”, yet it’s “worth a visit to Devon” to eat the “yummy” food at this purpose-built communal-dining venue – and in particular its “most inventive use of fresh organic veg”. “A walk around the farm in the drizzle is just what you need to round off your visit!”
“Communal dining it might be”, but this purpose-built restaurant on the owners’ farm offers a “remarkable” experience, thanks to “imaginative” cooking using the “freshest of ingredients”; “if you arrive early, wander through the surrounding fields accompanied by an audio tour to bring it all to life”!
“Substantial portions of excellent local produce” (much of it grown on-site) is the winning modus operandi of this “informal” communal-tables venue; it also offers “enough colouring books and crayons to keep kids entertained, and space outside for them to run and burn off excess energy”.
“Drive past sheds and pallets” or “walk through the fields where your food is grown” to reach this “casual” venue, where you “eat communally from big platters” at long trestle tables; the “wholesome” food is “unbeatable”, “especially the veg” – “my only complaint is it’s so delicious I eat too much!”
