survey result


* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

A “spectacular molecular gastronomic seven-course tasting menu” from chef Stephen Gomes – complete with impressive dessert course – is the centrepiece of this “unique venue” in the leafy burbs (which also has a very eclectic à la carte offering). As an alternative, head to the adjoining shisha lounge, complete with regular DJs – “a great place for romancing Essex girls and boys, with tans, tits and tattoos aplenty!” Note, it’s an alcohol-free venue, with plenty of non-alcoholic drinks, but you can arrange to BYO. Some upbeat feedback, but too few reports for a rating as yet. But, in the right mood, it looks like an interesting night!

For 31 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).
