“Locals head here rather than the overhyped and extortionately priced Hand & Flowers” when they want a pub meal from TV champ Tom Kerridge. No-one has a bad word to say about the place, loving its “delicious small plates”, “lively atmosphere” and “lovely range of ales”. It’s no- bookings policy is also actually popular. “Some of the tables are a bit random and cramped into the space – it isn’t very big – so get there early for the excellent window tables”. Top Menu Tip – “The mussels with stout broth is a favourite. And the profiteroles? Mon dieu!”.

“Just a delight all round” – seldom is a bad word said about Tom Kerridge’s ‘other’ pub in this Thames valley town: an “extremely crowded and very buzzy” haunt that is also “lovely and chilled”. “You don't need to book a table and you can order the plates tapas-style”: “the food is so good”.

“Turn up early as there’s no booking” at Tom Kerridge’s ‘other’ place in town. Spared the Michelin-fuelled expectations of its older sibling perhaps allows its virtues to shine all the brighter: “the food is well thought-out and well executed”, service is “friendly” and although it can become “hectic” it “is well worth the wait”. Top Tip: “they also do fantastic breakfasts, especially the Kedgeree”.

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).
