Harden's survey result
This “superbly renovated building in lovely countryside” in “the middle of nowhere” in particular – on the edge of the Peak District and “accessible from the culinary desert of North Staffordshire” – is “busy for good reason”: from a “shortish menu” the food is of “tip top” quality.
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).
