Summary

Part of the Gilbey gin empire, a “very cosy”, “slightly old-fashioned” bistro “with lots of nooks and crannies”, making it a “great choice for a catch-up with a friend or a romantic meal”. The menu offers “lots of English specialities” and – while critics say it’s “no longer seems to rise above average” – even they say it is rarely less than “solid”. The “interesting wine list” includes bottles from nearby Hambleden.
