* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Expect a twist on the ordinary” at Gordon Craig’s “cracking” three-year-old – “a modern space” with greige tongue-and-groove panelling, which has proven “a very welcome addition to the restaurant scene in Stockbridge”. “It’s difficult to describe the cuisine, but it is deliciously eclectic, with some lovely, unusual flavours”: “not always 100% successful but interesting and for the quality, very good value”.

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).
