Summary

Opened in summer 2023, former Fenn head chef Joe Laker’s debut project is a 16-seater chef’s table with a focus on less familiar British produce, presented in a minimalist style. There’s a touch of the TARDIS to it – on the outside, it looks like a bog-standard old corner pub; on the inside, it transforms into an open kitchen surrounded by a slick dining counter made from green marble. The venue has its own separate cocktail bar, Lowcountry, featuring whiskeys from the Georgia to North Carolina coast under Savannah-born mixologist Ryan Sheehan. Lowcountry also has a menu of southern US small plates such as shrimps and grits prawn toast. Top Menu Tip – “the custard tarts with fennel seeds are a real show-stopper”.

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).

"Wonderful cooking over all the 16 courses. Time flys whilst sitting & watching the next course being prepared. Favourites were the beef tartare & monkfish courses. The paired wines were well thought out and showcased the personality of the sommelier as well as complimentary to the courses. Can't wait to return!"
