Fernando & Kristy Stovell’s beamed Tudor farmhouse helps put Chobham on the foodie map with its “amazing” and ambitious cuisine, prepared on a wood-fired grill and with a ‘Taste of Mexico’ tasting menu, nodding to the chef’s own roots. Practically all reports last year rate the food extremely highly, and it’s a “romantic” spot too.

“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).

“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”.

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).
