“Steve Smith hits all the right notes” in this opulent dining room: “a real treat that’s expensive but worth it”. “While the hotel may feel a bit big and corporate, The Latymer just feels special. From the moment you walk in, to the time you leave. Each course is craft-fully mapped out with little cards explaining what it is and where it originated from”. On all accounts this year, its six-course menu – for which you should allow three hours – delivers an “outstanding” experience for £175 per person.

The “small, intimate dining room” at this luxury resort hotel has long been a top gastronomic destination, and currently has “the wow factor” under chef Steve Smith, who made his name at Bohemia in Jersey and is “at the top of his game”. His “interesting and enjoyable 6-course tasting menu” is a “real pleasure”, and comes with “stunning wine pairings”, while “staff are able to swap out foods without any fuss”.

“We love this place and the new chef, Steve Smith (who earned a big rep at Jersey’s Bohemia)”, say fans of the “cosy, historic and colourful dining room” (which can seem “a little dark”) at this plush Surrey resort hotel (a training base for the England rugby squad): “he has clearly brought his simplicity and love of simple fish cookery with him”. On all accounts, a meal here is “expensive but worth it”.

“Everything is hushed and cushioned, dark and cocooning” in the luxurious and much-accoladed dining room of this well-known country house hotel. Matt Worswick offers both five-course (£69) and seven-course (£95) tasting menu options which are rated good or better in all reports. The experience is “VERY expensive” and there is a sceptical view that “while the food is pretty good, it’s the place that is just lovely”.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
