“Just superb cooking” from chef-patron Dominic Chapman, whose skills were sharpened working for Rowley Leigh and Heston Blumenthal, lifts this “hidden village pub” overlooking a cricket pitch to a level above the competition – “it’s just a shame they don’t have beds”. Top Tip – “you really should leave room for the signature freshly baked honey madeleines”.

“Fantastic food and service” makes lunch overlooking the village green at Dom Chapman’s smartly converted pub (motto ‘to feed you and make you happy’) a “lovely” experience. Yes, they serve chips – and even onion rings – but it's not really pub grub: haunch of venison… lasagne of wild rabbit… roast Cornish cod…

“Families having lunch overlooking the village green provides a quintessentially English atmosphere” at Dom Chapman’s “very busy” converted pub. One or two reports are so-so last year, but the majority of feedback is outstanding, praising a “thoroughly enjoyable” experience including “very individual” food that’s so good “I’m not sure it qualifies as pub food”“amazing!”

For 32 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).

"Certainly worthy of its top cooking grade, it takes Home Counties pub fare to an elevated state. The amuse-bouches and petits-fours make a pub lunch here a real occasion. We hope to return when there’s cricket on the adjacent field."
