This “grand” fifteenth-century farmhouse-with-rooms is “just an hour from London” but profits from “extensive gardens leading to open countryside”. Add in an “imaginative” menu and “cosy corners to dine” (plus a newish dining conservatory), and it’s “most enjoyable, particularly if at a garden table when the sun is shining”.

Revamped in summer 2018, this fifteenth-century pub-with-rooms nowadays incorporates a stylish dining conservatory, which – notwithstanding the odd downbeat report – scored very highly last year with its earthy, high quality cooking.

This 15th century hotel in rolling Herts countryside has been under the aegis of Anglian Country Inns since mid-2017, with an ongoing revamp already adding a new barn conversion juggling weddings and a vibrant bar; on the food front, the MO has changed to farm-to-fork and is gaining decent marks (more feedback please!).

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).
