Summary

Marcus & Kate Ashenford’s “tiny gastronomic haven” in an “intimate” old building (a former tea room) is a classic “husband cooks and wife is front of house” kind of place, and consistently delivers an “unpretentious” yet “fabulous” experience. Service is “friendly and welcoming” and the food is “honest, generous, creative, and stylishly plated” (“even from the reassuringly limited menu, we still found choosing difficult!”)

Summary

An “intimate” venture, run by Marcus & Kate Ashenford, which offers “knock-out” food that’s “fully deserving of the (Michelin) acclaim”; the “simple café-style setting”, in a former tea-room, is a tad “provincial” in style for some tastes, but there’s no doubting the “outstanding gastronomy”.
