This “very good modern Turk” uses high-quality ingredients, including organic meats from Wales, to produce some interesting meals in this under-served town, and it “gets busy and can be very noisy”. There’s a spinoff branch in Berkhamsted.

* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

With its “interesting” and “beautifully flavoured” dishes to share or hog, and “using only organic meat and poultry”, this “noisy” Turkish dining room is “really unexpected for a not particularly amazing location (off the High St) and in an otherwise culinary desert”. (There’s a sibling Tabure on Berkhamsted’s High Street.)

“Family run and it shows” – a modern Turkish three-year-old, where reporters are struck by the “enthusiasm in all aspects”; the brasserie-style room offers “inspired food with zest” and there’s “always something new to try” on the tapas-led menu.

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).
