We booked this 7 months in advance for a Saturday lunch and we weren't disappointed. We had the venison and beef mains which were full of flavour. More generally, all the food was incredible, wine selection matches well and service was great. The place comes with a huge level of expectation but did not disappoint!

Went here for my husbands 30th birthday and it was truly amazing! Yes we had to book a year in advance but it was worth it and was for a special occasion. We have never been treated so well. The food and service were incredible! Thank you to the staff for making it a birthday to remember!

My husband and I have been a fans of Tom Kerridge for a while,I know quite a few people who have eaten here and really liked it, so it seemed a no brainer to book it for my birthday lunch. July 19th was the hottest day of the year so far with temperatures reaching 35. We booked a table for... More

We booed a table for two one year in advance - and so we really had been building ourselves up to this evening. You sometimes feel that it will never quite be as good as you expect when you set your expectations high .. but the Hand and Flowers did!! We loved the relaxed atmosphere - very laid back and...

We have been lucky to eat at many Michelin Restaurants around the world, and I am afraid this restaurant does not meet the standard which we had expected. Very disappointing decor and atmosphere, although the menu looked interesting the food was undercooked and tasteless. Despite having to book many weeks/months in advance we were not impressed and would not recommend... More

We had waited quite a while for an evening meal at the Hand and Flowers but it was well worth the wait. Thoroughly professional from start to finish but friendly too - no 'airs and graces' and we were made very welcome. The 'a la carte' menu was sensibly short and all of our party (of six) enjoyed their various... More

We had tried to get in here last time we were visiting England but weren't able to. This time we booked as soon as we knew we would be there. Worth the wait! 6 of us ordered various things (all had 3 courses). Not one person was underwhelmed by their choice. Everything was better than expected. We will be going... More

Waiting a year for our booking, The Hand and Flowers definitely didn't disappoint. My fiance and I thought we would treat ourselves for our birthdays and book into The Hand and Flowers. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Food was AMAZING! Could not fault a thing. The staff were also faultless, extremely friendly, chatty and always smiling. Will definitely be trying to... More

We had lunch here having booked many months in advance for a birthday celebration.Meet and greet was welcoming, a drink in the bar pre lunch was nicely done and the service throughout was very good. The problem is the food....which for a celebrity chef run Michelin starred restaurant is something of a problem. The menu reads well, but does not... More

Had dinner at The Hand and Flowers it was well worth the 12 month wait from the time it was booked. The quality of the food was superb as was the choice of menu. We also had the pleasure of an overnight stay at one of the cottages which belong to The Hand and Flowers. The rooms were of an... More
