Laidback, beamed gastroboozer built in 1779, with a garden stretching down to the River Ouse; chef/owner Martel Smith (an MPW grad) turns out an “interesting” and “consistently delicious” menu (from classics to more adventurous fare) that makes the most of local sourcing.

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).
