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.
“The wonderful pub atmosphere outweighs the variable food” at this classic Victorian inn near the cathedral (nowadays managed by Fullers), where drinkers sit at old desks from the town’s posh boys’ school.
“A good, old pub like it should be!” – this “old-fashioned Victorian hostelry near the cathedral” has a “unique ambience” and it’s “always busy with a great mix of locals and visitors”. “Delicious food” and “sometimes amateur service” complete the picture.
In a “lovely location next to cathedral and college”, this “old-style” institution has a charming, most “civilised” ambience (and “the candlelit Jameson room is hard to beat”). Some long-term fans say that nowadays the food is “slightly down in standard perhaps”, but on most accounts it’s nevertheless “enjoyable and fair value”.
The “time warp” charm of this “unique” and hugely popular institution near the cathedral cannot be doubted; on the food front, though, opinions range from “excellent” to “not what it was”.
