“Interesting food, presented with precision” makes Tom Van Zeller’s “fantastic” three-year-old – backed by Pied à Terre owner David Moore – “the best in Harrogate”; the setting is “not that atmospheric”, but the food is “impressively imaginative”.

I once spent a long train journey sitting across the aisle from a man I vaguely knew, who had recently become my friend on Facebook. We sat beside each other for five hours, and I never quite plucked up the nerve to speak to him. When I got home, I sent him a Facebook message saying, "Was that you on the train today?". He confirmed that it had been and that he had recognised me, too, but also hadn't said hello.
