Harden's survey result
With its “lovely” yet formal ambience, this well-known Regency villa is the town’s best known culinary destination, but has tended to split opinion in recent years; it “seems to have come back to form” of late, winning consistently high ratings this year. In particular, “set lunch is amazing value and always feels like a treat”.
“A treat, every time”, say fans of this long-established Regency villa, which is well supported for its “beautiful, locally sourced food and a formal but charming atmosphere”. However ratings are dragged down by a sizeable minority who are “disappointed” by its performance generally: “Like Marmite: you love it or you hate it… we are in the latter category…”
“Superb flavours and complex dishes” still inspire many fans of this well-known culinary destination: a Regency villa near the town centre. Reports are a little up-and-down on numerous fronts however, although the most common theme is “service let it down, but the rest was amazing”.
Why have Michelin taken a star from Richard Phillips’s well-known Regency villa near the centre – by far the best-known place in town? All reports this year are of “good” or “excellent” cuisine, with the feeling that it’s “on top form” currently. Top Tip – “the set lunch is incredible value for cooking of this complexity and has all the extras you'd expect at evening service.”
