Harden's says

From Tom Adams (of Pitt Cue Co fame) and NYC-chef April Bloomfield, comes a farm-to-table guesthouse in the Cornish countryside. The pair snapped up this Georgian dairy farm in spring 2016 and have renovated it into a guesthouse, dining room and working farm. There are just six bedrooms and the dining room accommodates up to 14 guests.

“Gorgeous and remote”, this “inviting farm-to-fork restaurant” from well-known big-city chefs April Bloomfield (New York’s Spotted Pig) and Tom Adams (London’s Pitt Cue) goes “super-local and super-rustic with their menu – and you can’t help loving the wonderful converted stone barn dining room and attentive service”. Some find it “a marmite experience”: “the dishes are so few and so stripped-back that a nagging voice kept asking ‘is this it?’, even while the quality of cooking was superb”. But a large majority reckon it’s “well worth the journey”, as you “come away having fallen in love with the place”. Its influence stretches far: Coombeshead bread crops up regularly on smart menus in London.

“I just can’t get over what a magical place this is” – chefs April Bloomfield (ex-Spotted Pig, NY) and Tom Adams (Pitt Cue, London) have combined to create a secluded guesthouse with a “farm-to-fork operation as it should be”, with a “lovely relaxed atmosphere and friendly passionate staff”. “The food is just fantastic, with amazing flavours and mostly vegetables, although items like pork and duck are wonderful too. And the bread is the best ever…”

“A unique experience”, “like being a guest in somebody’s parlour with food of a remarkable standard”, this secluded “Hampstead-meets-Cornwall” farmhouse is run by chefs April Bloomfield (of New York’s late lamented Spotted Pig) and Tom Adams (of London’s Pitt Cue) as a sort of test kitchen, providing “meals full of surprises, with a wonderful inventive menu”. “The number of top food professionals at the table taking note lets you know how influential this restaurant has become”“the sourdough is so good that staff warn you not to eat too much of it or you’ll never be able to cope with the meal ahead”.

“Tucked away down Cornish lanes”“a very innovative menu”, “full of new ideas and interesting flavours”, awaits at this “inspiring” venture, from chefs April Bloomfield (of New York’s Spotted Pig) and Tom Adams (of Pitt Cue in London). A stay on the farm, which produces food for the communal table shared by diners, is a “joyful and relaxed” experience that’s “unforgettable” – the “energetic and helpful staff” give guests a “real sense of involvement in the preparation of fine cooking”.

For 33 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).
