This “smart and trendy location” from the ‘I’ll Be Mother’ group, set in an Arts & Crafts house with “lovely views” over Happy Valley, offers “high-quality food, attentive service and great surroundings”. There’s also “a nice terrace for meals, if the weather permits”. Not surprisingly, it’s “popular and often hard to book”.

A “romantic setting on a high terrace with breathtaking views” of the Happy Valley is an evident draw to this Arts & Crafts pile, run by the ‘I’ll Be Mother’ group, and a hit for weddings. Alongside the formal dining room (home to “outstanding” dishes including tasting menus, etc.), it now benefits from a “recent brasserie extension”, the Garden Bar, offering more casual bites.

“So much love has gone into the design and décor of this Victorian pub you can’t help feeling like country gentry when dining here!” – this Arts & Crafts house is part of Pete Cornwell’s ‘I’ll Be Mother’ group and fans say that “the food is perfectly good posh pub fayre… but the big deal is the pub itself” (with its wonderful views, it also operates as a wedding venue).

For 33 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).
