Harden's says

Paul Foster, previously at Tuddenham Mill and a former Observer Food Monthly young chef of the year award winner, crowdfunded this diminutive Stratford-upon-Avon restaurant with his wife, opening in March 2017.

This ambitious two-year-old, in a classic Stratford timbered house, has hit big targets, including the crowd-funding which financed its debut and a star for chef-proprietor Paul Foster from the French tyre people within 12 months of opening. But feedback from reporters this year is split: some hail “top-notch dining” and an “excellent tasting menu”, while others regret “the disastrous portion sizes (mere scraps)”, “pretentions”, and “diminishing returns with each trip”.

“Just what Stratford needed” – this “very promising”, crowdsource-funded yearling opened in one of the town’s half-timbered houses in March 2017 “and quickly became a favourite”. “I’ve dined there 16 times in first 12 months, and chef Paul Foster has produced excellent food time after time by simply focusing on flavour and the best seasonal ingredients”. In October 2018, his hard work was rewarded with a Michelin star.
