A tiny farm-to-table restaurant in rural Somerset, from Merlin Labron-Johnson who previously worked at Portland and Clipstone.
Harden's survey result
“A real piece of gastronomic magic” is delivered by Merlin Labron-Johnson (who previously worked at Portland and Clipstone) at this “cute little space” which he opened in late 2019: a ‘tiny farm-to-table restaurant in rural Somerset’. “You are not given a menu before eating so every dish is a surprise”, and while “not showy the food is brilliantly executed with top-notch ingredients” leading to “exciting” flavours. It feels “super-cool” for somewhere out in the boonies. “Worth the 50-mile trip for lunch!”
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).

"We had an extraordinarily good lunch - no menu but you get a menu at the end . Each course was understated excellence - combining flavours from perfect ingredients - mostly vegetable - in unexpected ways that worked beautifully - genuine tasting sensations. A real treat and superb friendly service."
