“A rare gem of a restaurant!”“Frederic the owner and chef also waits tables and is a real character” (so “don’t go if you are easily offended by banter”). “Fortunately he can cook”, and “whilst savouring the delicious Belgian food, you can admire his stunning wildlife photography on the walls”.

A visit to eccentric owner Freddie’s Belgian-accented venture is quite an experience; but while not all respond well to his singular hosting style (he “never went to charm school”) even sensitive types are duty bound to concede that “he can cook!” (And he has a good nose for interesting vintages too.)

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).
