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.
“Who would have thought, in an out-of-the-way spot such as this, that such a high standard of cooking can be achieved?” – but, defying expectations, “the chef knows his onions” at this 15th-century smugglers’ inn, and “they seem to pride themselves on sourcing as much local produce” as possible (down to the on-site pigs).
A “cosy”, 15th-century smugglers’ inn, “particularly on a winter’s night”, when “you can sit on huge high-backed settles around an open fire”; the food is “mainly meat-based”, but no less “excellent” for that – and there’s a particular shout-out for the “porky platter” (the pigs being reared on site).
This 15th-century smugglers' inn is “as good now as it was under previous ownership a few years ago”; it serves “really surprising” food, “with a lot being from their own produce” (not least the in-house goats).
“One evening I heard the landlady say: I must go and get the goats in” – evidence that they take local sourcing seriously at this “great little place”, where the food is often “superb”!
