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

Opened in late 2019 by James Hickson (front-of-house) and (chef) Sam Coxhead, who have worked at St John, Moro, Great Queen Street and The Canton Arms – this “well-restored large building” (which dates back to the 1860s, when it was a hotel) is praised for “good pub food” of an unfussy and seasonal variety.

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).
