Harden's survey result
“In a quiet but central part of town, next to the museum”, Chris White and Purdey Spooner’s year-old venture could be classified as “fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere”. The “imaginative” cuisine can hit the heights, with some best meals of the year reported, while service is “friendly and helpful”. Top Tip: “set lunch is very good value”.
“One of Cheltenham’s star restaurants” – this “excellent” yearling run by Chris White (ex Fat Duck) and his partner Purdey Spooner “is making a huge success of this new venue in the Minster close” with cooking that’s “very creative and beautifully presented”. Top Tip – “the set menus are great value”.
This “romantically lit” room overlooking a church makes “a fantastic addition to Cheltenham’s dining choices”. A “few bum notes” were reported – the “strange” flavour combinations bear witness to chef Christopher White’s Fat Duck heritage – but, for early days, the majority found it “generally excellent”.
