Prettily located home counties pub (with rooms), just off the A1, that’s “cheerful and well-run”. Some reporters feel results here are “variable” but on most accounts its cooking – in the bar, and also with a somewhat more ambitious restaurant menu (majoring in steaks) – is well rated.

Regulars disagree this year on this well-appointed gastropub-with-rooms just off the A1 in a pretty village with a duck pond: some feel “it seems more over-extended of late with cooking that’s not what it was”, but others praise “very superior” food and continue to rate it highly.

In a pretty location off the A1, this village gastroboozer with rooms (part of Anglia Country Inns group) inspires consistently upbeat reports for its high standard of cooking, both in the bar and slightly smarter restaurant.

For 30 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).
