Summary

Long hailed as a local beacon, an intimate hotel dining room, in a high street building that has served as both a boathouse and tearoom. “Subtle and efficient” service is matched with “quality food” (fish, speciality sourdoughs etc.) and they couldn’t be more “accommodating”.

Summary

With its “brilliant” desserts and decent mains (especially meat), this pared-back hotel dining room “improves the high street”; even those who feel it’s “solid” but “not inspirational” admit that it’s “the best local restaurant” nonetheless.

Summary

“A real hidden treasure in a sea of suburban mediocrity”; with its “lovely table settings” and “fantastic looking, beautifully tasting” food, this hotel dining room strikes more than one reporter as being “unexpectedly good” – and, given “the work and effort that can be seen on the plate”, it’s also “amazing value for money”.
