You’ll find “excellent food” – much of it locally sourced pub classics at surprisingly good “value for money” – at this Grade 1-listed, wood-framed Elizabethan inn dominating the high street of a historic village (built as a private house for Sir Thomas Gresham, Elizabeth I’s banker). In 2018 they added a new extension: “a welcome addition with a London feel to the cooler section of the established restaurant”.

For 30 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).
