Summary

“The move from Ripley has worked” and Steve Drake is producing “phenomenal” cooking in his new 40-cover yearling – “an outstanding venture that maintains and even exceeds his former high standards”. “Stunning, innovative dishes are meticulously prepared” and “he conjures up amazing flavours” (e.g. “beetroot, Douglas fir, sesame and goats’ cheese packed a refreshing punch; tartare of venison with smoked egg yolk and orange purée was a rich smoky creamy mouth adventure; pre-dessert of carrot tobacco with coconut ice cream and lime gel was one of my top ten desserts; but just wait for the blackberry Waldorf!”). “Service is top-notch and the environment warm and friendly”. Top Tip: “a very good value set lunch menu”. Also “parking is tricky, so allow some time if you cannot get into the small adjacent car park”.

Summary

In October 2017, Steve Drake (who established nearby Drakes, now re-named The Clock House) opened his new, 40-cover fine dining venture, with open kitchen, of which the highlight is a 9-course taster menu (but there is a 5-course alternative), showcasing British cuisine. “Obviously there will be a few similarities [with Drakes] but I want to move it on”.
