Restaurant and bar in a stunning converted Victorian schoolhouse.
Harden's survey result
Chef Luke Sutton’s “consistently excellent and interesting” cooking, from a “delicious locally sourced menu”, is served in the “beautiful setting” of a high-ceilinged hall with exposed wood beams – a “fantastic conversion of an old school building” from the 1860s. The set lunch and early evening menu is particularly “great value”.
A “beautifully converted old school building” dating from 1864, and featuring striking exposed rafters, sets the scene at this “fabulous, unexpectedly glamorous restaurant” (“feels like when you drive in France and come across amazing upmarket places in the middle of nowhere”). All reporters praise its “truly outstanding” seasonal cuisine, and there's an “exceptionally well-curated” wine list to go with it.
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).

The Clockspire Restaurant Diner Reviews
"A very interesting menu which was beautifully presented. Very good service in a beautifully renovated building. We are returning with friends in 7 days!"
"Excellent dinner with guests who had not been before and were impressed. great choices from the a la carte menu"
"Simple early evening menu good value but had not been warned about a lecture party taking over the remainder of the restaurant and asking us to stop talking while the lecture was taking place. The only occasion that i have left the Clockspire not thoroughly satisfied - due to other guests not the restaurant."
