Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
“Wonderfully tasty food is served impeccably in a homely atmosphere” at Duncan Walker (ex-Gidleigh Park) and Anthea Christmas’s restaurant-with-rooms, on the edge of Dartmoor. For one reviewer, the “personal service” starters with an “Ideal” reception by “two friendly golden retrievers” – though “with just three tables in a small room” (and 17 covers total) you can’t help but snoop on fellow diners.
Dan Walker (ex-22 Mill Street) and Anthea Christmas’s inn remains “excellent as always” – particularly its “very high standard” of cooking; for overnighters, the “wonderful welcome” and “touches like afternoon tea on arrival make the whole experience very special” (“we almost felt like we were staying with old friends”).
Chef Duncan Walker (ex-22 Mill Street) and Anthea Christmas’s “warm, cosy and comfortable” inn combines a “wonderful welcome” with some truly “masterful” cuisine; it's a big hit with all reporters.
“The food is out of this world”; the inn presided over by ex-22 Mill Street chef Duncan Walker may offer a “slightly off-beat” menu, but his “always-excellent” standards seduce all who comment on it; “very good breakfasts” too.
