delicious food, wonderful service, unpretentious presentation food you just want to dive in to. Not cheap but good value for money because what you receive is so excellent. Quite expensive service charge as we had a cookbook put on the bill but questioned it and the service charge was removed immediately. Could have earn the entire menu,will definitely be back... More

Lovely ambiance, really great food with unusual flavours, although, don't go if you're vegetarian - everything is meaty! Only drawback is the kitchen could be heard shouting SERVICE throughout our lunch which was a bit off putting. Would go back.... If we can ever get a table.

After dining in The hand and Flowers it became clear to us that Michelin uses different standards in different countries. We've eaten at one star places in Belgium that reach a much higher level. For instance the amuse bouche of whitebait was cute but extremely basic. In other places with two stars you would get a several exquisite little dishes... More

We stayed in the Dexter Suite the night of our meal at The Hand & Flowers (reviewed separately) - and we loved it! A beautiful quirky room, we were treated to complimentary freshly baked treats along with the usual tea & coffee. The bathroom was fabulous with the biggest bath I've ever seen - it would have been nice for... More

This is a difficult review to get balanced properly, particularly for Tom Kerridge fans. Were our expectations too high, even though it is the only 2 Michelin starred pub in the UK? And we only paid a miserly £15 for two set courses. However, it isn't a tasting menu and the portions are just too small. Perhaps they should charge... More

Another visit to The Hand and a Flowers to celebrate another birthday with a special lunch. The pub is a lovely and welcoming place and was soon full of diners, and the staff friendly and informative. I loved the feel of a busy pub and that you could heart some of the action and instruction from Chef to his kitchen... More

The food has now developed its own individual personality, none of the dishes look like any other restaurant - the presentation is amazing, the chicken is really quite clever and the beer pairing with the chocolate is inspired. Fully deserves it 2 star status, but in should be an 8 or 9 in the GFG.

We booked to celebrate my wife's birthday and we were not disappointed. It was absolutely stunning. The food, the staff and the ambience helped to make it a dining experience to remember. we will visit again whenever we can. Thank you Tom and your brigade for making 2 foodies extremely happy.

Having waited 3 months for a table it was a tad dissappointing to find just a bog standard pub on a main road, no real atmosphere, no views, just pretty average really. The staff were brilliant, attentive and knowledgeable. My pidgeon was overdone and served at room temperature, his pork was fabulous and the starters were also lovely. £160 for... More

Visited today armed with gift vouchers received at Christmas. Shown to a claustrophobic table adjacent to the kitchen,asked for another table to be told all were allocated but moved opposite to a six seater (for two ). Not the most peaceful of positions as we now had the staff traipsing in and out,plus the uproar from the kitchen !! Food... More
