A “beautiful setting – a very tastefully decorated barn à la Martha Stewart” (and one of four centuries’ standing) adds to the ambience at this Wyken estate staple. As for the food, it's “consistently good, maybe not terribly exciting, but what they do, they do very well” – i.e. European dishes with thoughtful sourcing. Stop Press: having launched a sourdough pizzeria in an old farm workshop during lockdown, it's now a permanent fixture called The Moonshine Cafe.

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).
