While some reporters praised the “very interesting and clever food” at Fernando & Kristy Stovell’s beamed Tudor farmhouse – a key pillar supporting Chobham's foodie credentials – there was a general sense that “indifferent” service can take the edge off the experience, as can “really high prices”.

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).

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).

"Oh dear. They seem to have lost their way. Used to be a real destination restaurant - now the food is really disappointing. Short menu with few alternatives if you don’t want highly spicy food. Presentation was uninspiring. Won’t be going back any time soon. "
