Harden's survey result
Ryan Blackburn’s “imaginative” cooking using “great local produce in unusual combinations” continues “to improve” and to mightily impress practically all who comment on his “pocket-sized” basement in the centre of the town. As well as an à la carte option, there’s a ‘signature’ menu.
“Chef Ryan Blackburn will no doubt go from strength to strength” at this three-year-old, which already offers the “best food in Ambleside” – “yes, the basement is a little bland and sparsely decorated”, but the “brilliantly imaginative” cooking “shines like a beacon”.
“Hidden away in Ambleside”, this pared-down two-year-old basement-venture, run by talented young chef Ryan Blackburn (ex-Martin Wishart), continues to elicit real raves. The food is “truly exceptional”, with a choice of two tasting menus and an à la carte option at dinner.
