Four years down the line, Daniel Crump and Margriet Vandezande-Crump’s “gorgeous” converted seventeenth-century coaching inn is simply “perfection” to the very many diners who comment on it: “not only do you experience fine dining” (an “innovative menu” whose “consistency is something to behold”), “but you get the choice of great beers too, because it’s a pub!” On the food front, “excellent” tasting menus (including dedicated vegetarian and vegan options) are ably abetted by a “brilliant-value set lunch”. Add in “incredible” service and “what more could you want?”

“Beautiful building… beautiful food… beautiful people” – Daniel Crump and Margriet Vandezande-Crump have transformed this old pub (since they took it over in 2019) to create a “wonderful” destination in this chichi town, once devoid of much in the way of culinary interest. They are not only “amazing hosts” (“and have put together a fantastic team”) but also “constantly innovating as well as working actively in the local community”. “The menu changes rapidly to reflect the best seasonal ingredients at any time of year” and the “strong standard of cooking” adds to a “wonderful” offering all-round.

“An extremely welcome ‘finer’ dining experience in the Old Town” – this “fun and luxurious” eighteenth-century pub was refurbished in 2019 by Daniel Crump and Margriet Vandezande-Crump and has won an enthusiastic local fan club. “They are perfect hosts”“there’s always a warm welcome with a magic touch from the front of house team that makes each visit feel special”. “Interesting dishes are well executed and change often enough to keep things fresh, plus there are always generous ‘extras’ (amuse bouche, yummy bread and butters, etc… don't miss out on trying the delicious nibbles, even if it means rolling home!)”. Even a reporter who thought the food “overpriced and with small portions” judged it overall as “very good indeed”.

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).

Reviewed 11 months, 12 days ago

"Really lovely food. The bread and browned butter were staggeringly good together. Chicken, mackerel and hake were super. I’d never had cheddar with a honey flapjack before, but this was perfect: not too sweet, balanced with pickled cucumbers and gooseberry chutney Food retina applies to set lunch at £35 for 3 courses, plus 4 amuse-vouch bonuses! Dinner may deserve a lower value rating - delicious "
