For 32 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).

Compton Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Our first family dinner at the Compton and everybody was happy with the experience. Interesting range of starters. The main courses were good but not exciting and the choice rather limited. Delicious desserts. The service both friendly and efficient. Very nice setting in St John's Square, but the ambience indoors unexceptional and even before the place was full it was very noisy. "
