Simon Gueller is currently chef at this cottage-y bastion of provincial fine dining (est 1962), which most reporters deem a “gem”, with “consistent” standards harking “back to the good old days”; no denying, though, that the occasional refusenik finds the style too “unadventurous” for comfort.

"The lunch menu is the obvious way to get the best value from a restaurant of this calibre even if several weeks notice may be required. Marco P White allegedly calls it his spiritual home."

"Long established outpost of Michelin in North Yorkshire, new chef Laurence bringing it out of the 1960s to the 21st century. Full of old world charm but a little stuffy, food very good though. A tip - don't sit next to the fire, way too hot!"
