Summary

The owner of this ancient inn trained at the mythical Tour d'Argent in Paris, and his pedigree continues to show through in a “superb” menu that includes the “best duck ever” (“genuine Aylesbury”); in keeping with the old-school vibe, it's also “one of the few restaurants still serving Melba toast”!

Summary

“THE place for duck!”; the owner of this ancient inn trained at Paris’s legendary Tour d’Argent, and it shows through in the quality of the Aylesburys served here; all this, plus service “with an amusing hint of Fawlty Towers about it”.

Summary

Unstinting praise of late for the “excellent food and silver service” at this “atmospheric” 17th-century inn, long known for its Aylesbury duck; celebrating something? – “cakes can be made and served to your requirements”.
