Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
This beamed 18th-century inn, near the cathedral, makes a cosy place for a local real ale; the food elicited scant commentary this year, though one reporter claimed that the bar snacks compared favourably to the dining room’s bistro-style fare.
A “quaint and welcoming” Grade II-listed inn with an “excellent location opposite the cathedral” and “great character and charm”; it wins praise for some “excellent” gastro grub and “it's a GBG pub too”, meaning “good beer” is a given!
It’s “always a pleasure” to visit this very popular pub and dining room, near the cathedral; reports suggest the food is variable – “some good dishes, some average” – but this is a good-value venue overall, with an “excellent and frequently-changing range of beers”.
