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

The cuisine is “somewhere between modern British and French in looks and taste”, and reliably – if not perhaps dazzlingly – executed at this comfortable stalwart, on the high street near the bridge. As befits a venue owned by the gin dynasty, the wine list is worth a nose – “if possible sleep off the after-effects in one of the super bedrooms above” (which opened a couple of years ago).

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

Convivial wine bar on the High Street, just down from the famous boarding school; one reporter has “been a customer since the 1970s”, and feels “it has survived well for years when others have gone bust” (having the backing of the famous gin dynasty can’t harm) and “always delivers” competent food. In recent times it has added three bedrooms, plus a new ‘Townhouse Restaurant’ area overlooking the main drag.

In an old butcher’s, a High Street stalwart wine bar with a “lovely cosy front eating area” and “nice conservatory at the back, often filled with Etonians and their parents celebrating rites of passage”. “The standard fare is of a perfectly acceptable level, if not especially memorable”.
