“Bruce Rennie is a wizard with fish, which is fresh from day boats in nearby Newlyn” – the reason to discover this small, modern bistro. “He now only offers a set, taster-style menu, but the food is brilliant considering it is only him at the stoves. Well worth a visit, but booking is absolutely essential”.

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).
