Kenneth Culhane’s “superb cooking – inventive within the boundaries of modern British cuisine” – has generated a groundswell of interest in this “unique” venue: an Arts & Crafts home bordering leafy Richmond Park and near the Thames. “The building itself is absolutely stunning and, like the menu, feels both progressive and traditional”; the atmosphere of civilised luxury extends to monthly dinners featuring a classical recital on an antique rosewood Bechstein grand piano.

In its “somewhat obscure location” bordering Richmond Park, this spacious Arts & Crafts home has “a wonderfully relaxed ambience”. It is an ideal showcase for Kenneth Culhane’s “original and beautifully cooked meals” – some of the most culinarily ambitious around leafy Richmond, and presented with “immaculate service”. It’s “almost a surprising find”… except, with the help of the folks from Clermont-Ferrand, it’s increasingly well-known.

“By far the best restaurant in the Richmond area”, this superior Arts & Crafts pub on the edge of Richmond Park is “a lovely place for a special occasion”, boasting a “beautiful room, lovely attentive staff and top-quality ingredients”. The fan club is overwhelmingly local, but chef Kenneth Culhane’s “well thought-out and presented” cuisine is winning wider recognition, including a coveted star from the French tyre-makers.

“An excellent setting” is the particular plus of this smart Arts & Crafts pub, near Richmond Park, but its appeal goes well beyond its leaded windows, log fires and flagstone floors. Kenneth Culhane’s “innovative” cuisine is “very accomplished” and “often excels”, to the point that some cognoscenti consider it deserves much wider culinary recognition.

For 33 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).
