Summary

“A charming location with amazing food” is the overwhelming verdict on Fernando & Kristy Stovell’s attractive timbered farmhouse, just outside Chobham – although its ratings slipped just a tad this year due to a few middling reports, feedback in the survey is fundamentally very strong and supports its high accolades (puzzlingly nothing from the Michelin Man, but a rare four rosettes from the AA). Alongside the à la carte, and set lunch options, there’s the option of a ‘Taste of Mexico’ tasting menu (reflecting Fernando’s homeland).

Summary

“Vaux le détour” – Fernando & Kristy Stovell’s beamed farmhouse just outside Chobham deserves some recognition from the Michelin man, for its consistently “assured” and “sublime” cuisine. If there’s a quibble it’s that “the long and impressive wine list is a tad pricey”.

Summary

“A real find in an area short of quality restaurants” – Fernando & Kristy Stovell’s heavily beamed farmhouse, about a mile outside of Chobham, is widely extolled for its “consistently exceptional, innovative-yet-simple cuisine”, its “excellent service” and its “delightful”, “romantic” setting. “It must be only a matter of time before Michelin is knocking on the door!”

Summary

“We are not blessed with lots of top restaurants in these parts”, but Fernando & Kristy Stovell’s tastefully updated, “romantic and candlelit”, 16th-century farmhouse is “going from strength to strength”; “creativity and flavour” characterise “beautifully presented” contemporary cuisine.
