“If you’ve ever been in Thailand, you’ll know how authentic the food is” at this “very popular Stockbridge restaurant” (which also has an offshoot near the castle). It’s “small, intimate and always busy, but the efficient staff try their best to provide you with a good dining experience”. Top Tip – “the chili crab signature dish”.

“Beautiful Thai food just off the main Stockbridge thoroughfare is well worth a detour”, according to fans of this “friendly and professional” operation in a seventeenth-century townhouse. Since late 2020, it has also had a sibling near the castle.

“A taste of the real Thailand is what you experience” (“without all the travelling”) at this “extremely authentic” and “reasonably priced” outfit in the Old Town (the original Stockbridge outpost having opened five years back). “Give this venue a try, you’ll not be disappointed” – there's a reason it has a “loyal clientele”.

For 33 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).
