“Very good food” allied to “friendly and efficient service” wins considerable praise last year for chef-owner Nick Gillespie’s accomplished venue. It's a rustic, brick-lined space with bare wooden tables in a rather offbeat location, close to the M1-A52 junction, but a “special occasion go-to” for its fans.

“Consistently impressive” cooking “served by attentive and knowledgeable staff” has garnered uniformly high ratings this year for this “high-quality” outfit just off the M1. It’s “excellent value” too, especially when you take into consideration extras such as the “superb amuse bouche”.

The location strikes some as “strange”“near a canal in a small unassuming town between Nottingham and Derby” – but this “first-class” venture pleases (nearly) all reviewers with its “imaginative, tasty British cooking” and “excellent service”: “expensive but good value for money”.

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).
