Harden's survey result
“A huge choice of delicious fish and shellfish dishes” – “all beautifully fresh and in generous helpings” – is available at Richard & Shirley Cook’s long-established smokery overlooking the Severn estuary, which added ‘The Barn’, with a “pleasant, modern café”, a couple of years ago. “A nice bonus is the wonderful fishmonger and delicatessen on the premises”.
Richard & Shirley Cook’s veteran smokery reopened doors in October 2017 after a three-year revamp, adding new food hall/café/shop and fish counter ‘The Barn’. “The ambience is a bit clinical”, but largely compensated for by “perfect views over the Severn, Bristol Channel and Welsh Hills” – plus “delicious fresh” fishy food.
Severn & Wye Smokery Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Lunchtime more cafe than restaurant food but perfectly acceptable. Was hoping for a bit more wow factor bearing in mind chef Mark Stinchcombe was a BBC Masterchef Professionals Winner and in his previous post was sensationally good."
"High hopes of new chef Mark Stinchcombe (former BBC Master Chef professionals winner) behind the stoves. Although the chef's lunchtime dish of the day demonstrated excellent fish cooking, the very mean portion (barely starter size as a main), slow service followed by indifferent cake and high cost was a disappointment. Could be so good though!"
