March 2019: look out for events, demos, nostalgic dishes and offers to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original Escape to River Cottage series.
Harden's survey result
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s TV tie-in kitchen – serving sharing boards and veggie tapas alongside more conventional starters and mains – is celebrating its twentieth anniversary, but feedback on it has seldom matched the hype, and is too limited this year for a rating. Such as we have says it’s OK value, but variable in performance.
The first of Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall’s family-friendly showpieces avoids the brickbats of its siblings by-and-large (“our favourite, but I’ve had bad reports of other branches”). There is the odd report here too of “bland and unimaginative” fare, but for the most part it’s praised for its “good value”.
This branch of the TV chef’s buzzing communal dining rooms continues to put in a steady performance: “a good place for lunch – especially with children” (who can profit from the notably virtuous kids’ menu).
HFW’s “busy” communal canteen – an airy, attractively converted space – avoided the critiques of last year, with praise for its “timely” service and healthy, “very tasty” dishes.
