“Oak-panelled comfort” with “beautiful décor”, plus “charming” and “professional” service set a perfect tone for “delightful” and “inventive” modern cuisine at this well-known foodie address, formerly made famous by Bibendum’s Claude Bosi (and nowadays run by his protégé, Wayne Smith). Its ratings waned a little this year, though, on the back of some reviews which were not damning, but “disappointing at the price”.

“Thankfully serious cooking and professional service have returned to Ludlow” – and, aptly, to the “convivial” old locale of La Bécasse (RIP) and Hibiscus (pre-London move) – at this rising star from Wayne Smith, the bluff northern protégé of Hibiscus’s former boss Claude Bosi. All reports are strong, and the best say his cuisine here is “inspired and unique”.

Claude Bosi-trained chef Wayne Smith’s “relaxed” two-year-old is “trying hard and doing well” in the old location of foodie fave La Bécasse (RIP). Even a reviewer who feels “the food needs to raise its game to compete with its forebear” says “it’s a promising work-in-progress”, and supporters say its “exceptional cuisine makes it a star-in-the-making”.

“Early days are very promising” at Claude Bosi protégé, Wayne Smith’s accomplished yearling, on the famous foodie site that was formerly La Bécasse (RIP). “The cooking is going from strength to strength, and the lunch menu is particularly good value.”

"Oak-panelled comfort, very professional service, and inventive cooking. Not quite as good as the last time we visited, but then this visit was under the COVID-19 rules which restricted things. the menu therefore was far more limited than was previously the case."
