With a change of regime, and new chef Gary Jarvis (ex-The Barn at Coworth Park) at the helm, this art-lined, remote coaching inn seems to be “back on track”. Some reports are still critical, but more often it’s credited with turning out “imaginative” food that’s “worth paying a little more for”.

For 30 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).
