Summary

This “lovely small restaurant” with rooms, a fixture on the quayside for more than 20 years, has (despite the odd ‘off’ review) seen its ratings revived this year as chef Gary Pearce “has found his feet” in charge of the kitchen. A local boy who trained here from the age of 17, Pearce has worked at some distinguished venues including Le Champignon Sauvage in Cheltenham. He now runs 36 with his wife Martina, with owners Ramon & Karen Farthing in the background.

Summary

This cosy quayside restaurant-with-rooms has quite a pedigree (including holding a Michelin star for 18 years until 2015). For a long time now, however, reports have been patchy, not helped by “stuffy” or “slow” service and a sense the end-result is “very overpriced”. Perhaps Gary & Martina Pearce, who are now overseeing the kitchen in partnership with longtime owners the Farthings, can sort things out?

Summary

Ramon Farthing’s “lovely quiet dining room”, set right on the quay, continues to please most, if not quite all reporters, with its “very accomplished” food – and it’s “so much better now the chef is providing three choices for each course”. Top tip? – “you can even make a night of it as it is possible to book a room”.

Summary

A “wonderful setting that cannot fail to set your heart aflutter and food to match” win raves for Ramon Farthing's “small, unpretentious” venue, right on the harbour; despite its long-standing culinary reputation, however, not everyone is quite convinced.
