"Great brunch - bacon and eggs and sausage muffin - all ingredients of the highest quality. Attentive service. Interior as its predecessor Sam's but that is no bad thing. Will be back to try the steaks soon. Cocktails very very tasty e.g. grapefruit soda."

"Fantastic food - fish / seafood cooked to perfection. Food presentation is perfect. Portions are good, not one of those tiny-portions restaurants. Service very attentive and helpful. Ambiance - nicely understated decoration, formal, very busy yet enough personal space."

"They seem to trying to try to create a Middle Eastern atmosphere by pulling people of the street and putting them in the annex round the corner. Prices have gone up and food standard has gone down. They tipping distribution policy seems to have at best confused the staff!"

"The food left a lot to be desired but the attitude of the staff was appalling, deliberately avoiding eye contact and seemingly becoming deaf. Extremely disappointing."

"Loud, impersonal...it's a treadmill food venue for people who take pictures of their food. Felt more like a club than a restaurant. Staff are pleasant, but seemed to almost forget the dishes they're presenting, parroting out lists of ingredients with a perfunctory 'enjoy' thrown on at the end that felt more like an order. Go if money is no object and you want to hang around paper-thin people with fake tan hammering £15 cocktails on bonus day. Would not go again."

"Lovely 'gastropub' offering attached to a still functioning pub. The food was was of a reassuringly high standard, although the wine list was surprisingly restricted and unexciting."

"A hidden gem! the outside does not do the inside justice so just go in and you will have wonderful food, wonderful service and it will be very good value too. We had the steaks last time we went, they were cooked to perfection. The portions are generous so you may not manage 3 courses. The puddings are just yum, so my choice is always main and pudding. Staff are friendly and accomodating. It does get pretty booked up at peak times so best to book . I would say it is one of the best places I have eaten in Wadebridge and would not hesitate in recommending it."

"We were 9 for dinner at £36 a head plus tip. House wines very acceptable, but I did not like the Pinot Gris from New Zealand. All the old favourites, chicken wings, monkfish curry, etc all arrived on on white hot metal plates, perfect for winter. Service as efficient as ever. Lovely and perfectly spiced food."

"Newly refurbishment very effective and a massive improvement. Food goes from strength to strength. Lovely calamares and lemon sole. Kind services by very attractive girls. What more could one want. Chein from South Africa a little pricey at £32 but excellent."

hawksmoor manchesterJay Rayner weighs in on the north/south restaurant divide question

The Observer's critic-in-chief heads to Manchester to try out the new Hawksmoor and stumbles across a veggie dining room, 1847, serving great food – well, apart from the desserts. Read our roundup of restaurant news in Manchester and enter our Hawksmoor Manchester competition.

 

 

Meanwhile the Guardian's Marina O'Laughlin pays a visit to the much gushed about Kitty Fisher's

Everyone else love, love, loves it but Marina can't help but feel she's ended up at a house party she wasn't quite invited to, particularly as the restaurant staff seem allergic to answering the phone. We can attest to that having called them on at least 10 occasions without success.

 

The award for most ferocious review this week has to go to The Sunday Times's A A Gill

The critic has a thing or two to say about Mayfair's 'ridiculously overpriced' Mexican, Peyote, including: “...fiddly, neurotic preparation with pale, polite taste and silly, parsimonious sharing plates that aren’t bounteous or fun and are more like eating the catering pitch for a drug cartel’s wedding.”

 

Over at The Times, Giles Coren gives his opinion on Russian-imported pizza chain Bocconcino

“Bocconcino isn’t a bad restaurant. It just isn’t a necessary restaurant.” At £202 for pizza and pasta it's not hard to see why Mr Coren might feel that way – mind you, a £46 bottle of wine probably helped nudge the bill up.

 

And last but not least, Ms Maschler reviews Brindisa's new Morada Asador

The Standard's long-standing critic heads to the latest outpost of this tapas chain (in Soho) and finds the meats are the reason to flock here – from the 'delectable' milk-fed lamb to the Secreto Iberico.

Matt WorswickMatthew Worswick has been announced as the new head chef of The Latymer – Pennyhill Park's luxurious and highly fêted country house hotel dining room in Bagshot. He takes the reins from Michael Wignall who left for Dartmoor's lauded Tudorbethan manor Gidleigh Park in January. Matthew, who previously led the kitchen team at The Lawn, Thornton Hall Hotel & Spa on the Wirral, will join the Surrey-based hotel on 1 March.

At just 28, the Liverpudlian chef has worked at some of the UK's top dining destinations including Glenapp Castle in Ayrshire and Le Champignon Sauvage in Gloucestershire.


Matthew started out at The Crofters Hotel in Lancashire before moving to St. Martins-on-the-Isle on The Isles of Scilly, working with Kenny Atkinson.  He was a semi-finalist on the Beeb's MasterChef: The Professionals in 2010 and last year was a regional finalist on the broadcaster's Great British Menu, representing the North West.

Matthew says: “Pennyhill Park has a formidable reputation and I am very excited about joining The Latymer as head chef. It’s a great privilege to have this opportunity with a platform to really showcase my food in such superb surroundings.”


Danny Pecorelli, MD of Exclusive Hotels and Venues, which incorporates Pennyhill Park and the South Lodge Hotel in Horsham (among others), adds: “Matt is an incredible talent and his passion is infectious so I've no doubt he will create some show-stopping food whilst being a fantastic mentor to the team.”
