Took my fiancee here for her birthday and it was a fantastic evening. From the minute we arrived (30 mins early so we could have a drink) to the time we left it was a fantastic experience. Every member of staff was polite and informative whilst approachable. The menu was fantastic and we were not disappointed. We made sure we...

Went there with friends to celebrate a 50th. We were excited to be going, and our group included a couple who are wine professionals. It was a mixed bag, the first bottle of wine we had was clearly off. I don't normally expect bubbles in red wine. We had to argue , but it was replaced. We eventually moved to...

We booked in for Tuesday lunch and started off by having a couple of drinks in the bar area. I had a lovely gin cocktail.

I've wanted to go to this place for ages, ever since Tom Kerridge stormed The Great British Menu. My lovely girlfriend booked a table for us for my birthday and it didn't disappoint. I've been to a number of Michelin starred restaurants but never to a Michelin starred pub. The atmosphere was perfect; romantically lit and a relaxed, informal feel....

Visit with family to celebrate a birthday as the birthday boy is a fan. Flavours were so delicious and well balanced. Definitely worth the trip. Seam bream and chocolate and ale cake were especially nice.

This was always on our radar to try Michelin star food quality in a not so classic setting, it was everything we had hoped for. we visited for lunch and the food quality was outstanding, triple cooked chips par excellence!!. The atmosphere was extremely good and not at all pretentious as maybe you may expect with named chef establishments. Staff...

A friend and I decided to visit this pub/restaurant as we had read the good reviews and heard about its Michelin star status. We went for the set lunch menu which worked out at £30 a head for three courses. The food was fantastic and the service was first rate. I would highly recommend visiting the Hand and Flowers especially...

Truly amazing food in an unpretentious atmosphere with attentive, friendly staff who are not over-bearing but always on hand when you need them. Excellent service. Good, wholesome food in the restaurant with an excellent bar serving an array of drinks. Cosy, warm feel. We also stayed in one of the rooms which was a delight and they add so many...
