Brothers Matthew and Iain Pennington’s hyper-ethical outfit near Bristol doesn’t generate masses of feedback but its devotees say it’s “nothing short of spectacular” – serving veg-dominated, ‘gut-friendly’ food that creates “an excellent and interesting meal that’s distinctive and local”. “From the moment you stroll through the Victorian walled garden to the restaurant, you’re treated to a full sensory experience”.

A “really different” ethical venture whose veggie-friendly food is “inventive and delicious” (à la carte by day, set menu by night). Set among art studios and a cider barn in a Victorian walled garden minutes from the airport, it can feel “too greenhouse-y” for some, but sitting outside in summer it’s the “perfect location”.

“Beautiful location, concept and food” – the verdict on this unusual ethical venue, which lies “adjacent to a working Victorian walled garden”, making it “great for children in summer”.

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).
