Harden's survey result
“Well worth a detour” – Marcus & Kate Ashenford’s outfit in a “tiny”, beamed former tea room in this picturesque Cotswold village; the pair make a “lovely team” (him at the pass, her out front), and the “wonderful freshness” and “intense flavours” of the cuisine make for a “special treat”.
Marcus & Kate Ashenford’s “tiny gastronomic haven” in an “intimate” old building (a former tea room) is a classic “husband cooks and wife is front of house” kind of place, and consistently delivers an “unpretentious” yet “fabulous” experience. Service is “friendly and welcoming” and the food is “honest, generous, creative, and stylishly plated” (“even from the reassuringly limited menu, we still found choosing difficult!”)
In a modest former tea-room, Marcus & Kate Ashenford’s highly esteemed venue continues to win acclaim for its “honest, creative and inspired cooking”; “unpretentious” service too – “without the usual Michelin BS”.
An “intimate” venture, run by Marcus & Kate Ashenford, which offers “knock-out” food that’s “fully deserving of the (Michelin) acclaim”; the “simple café-style setting”, in a former tea-room, is a tad “provincial” in style for some tastes, but there’s no doubting the “outstanding gastronomy”.
5 North Street Restaurant Diner Reviews
"A perfect meal of impeccable quality. Impossible to ask for more. Kate was attentive, friendly and yet supremely efficient. The chef produced exciting flavours in every dish we chose. Particularly memorable is the mussels cassserole: a tiny pot with mussels, carrot and spring onion pieces cooked in a cider sauce. Exquisite"
"Faultless, carefully crafted, albeit somewhat old school, food prepared by a hugely skilled chef who puts flavour as priority. Why Michelin decided to withdraw Marcus Ashenfordâ€™s Star is a complete mystery. Just confirms my trust in Hardens as the most reliable guide to the best restaurants in the U.K. !!"
