“Unusual dishes are brought out with a smile” at Will Devlin’s much-accoladed three-year-old which has taken Kent by storm. The “taster menus show the local roots of his sustainably minded philosophy” and deliver “sublime” results (“I can't believe there’s a better value anywhere”). “Superb service from his young staff” too. (In late 2021, he announced a new café-style opening in nearby Ticehurst, East Sussex).

“The first visit was amazing and I’m looking forward to returning”: Will Devlin’s “interesting tasting menus” (either the five-course ‘1/2-acre’ menu for £30, or the ten-course ‘full acre’ menu for £60) have Kent foodies in raptures, and this small, simple two-year-old venture (founded in April 2018) is the talk of the county. Part of the appeal are the “very generous wine flights and knowledgeable sommelier” to introduce them.

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).
