“Kind of a romantic and fantastic Scandi-Bristolian take on dining!”“You’d have to go a long way to replicate this really original experience”, where you eat in the “special location of a marvellous Victorian walled garden with lovely views (of the Mendips)”. There’s a “very individual” menu prepared by head chef Mark McCabe with 14 courses for £150 per person: “just superbly executed, if expensive”.

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.

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”.

"The food was very interesting (and good to eat). I had the wine flight, which was ok, but not as good as others I have tried. Overall a lovely evening for our anniversary. "
