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

Despite a dearth of feedback, we’ve maintained a listing for this traditional, family-owned (by the gin dynasty) wine bar and restaurant near the bridge. It’s never been a major culinary destination, but has a good wine list, is very agreeable in style, and worth knowing about in this under-provided locale.

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).

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.

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).

"Solid if unspectacular, reliable, competitively priced modern English. The room(s) are a little crowded but all-in-all worthy of a visit."
