A “very cosy” sixteenth-century house on the village green makes an ideal setting for Frederic Desmette’s “great” Belgian cuisine, with plenty of game on the menu reflecting his interest in wildlife (he’s an accomplished wildlife photographer). There’s also a “fabulous wine list (ask for the cellar specials)”. Top Tip: “superb crepes”.

“A visit to (chef/owner/waiter) Frederic’s is always an experience – his forthright views on just about anything complement his efforts in the kitchen!”, which revolve around Belgian cuisine and are supplemented by wildlife photography on the walls (by Frederic lui-même of course).

“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”.

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).
