A “superb and lovely restaurant set within a stunning sloped walled garden on the fringes of the Mendips”, where brothers Matthew & Iain Pennington follow a hyper-ethical ethos strong on vegetables and wild herbs. Their offering is currently split between the multi-course ‘Ethicurean Experience’ (£130), and ‘Ethicurean Lunch’ (£60) on Sundays. NB: Like fellow Brizzle stars Casamia, be aware that they've introduced payment on booking.

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”.

For 31 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).
