The Artichoke Restaurant

Amersham Town, Chiltern, 60-100£
13/03/2017: We recently ate at Artichoke on a Friday night as a party of four, with all of us eating off the tasting menu and two of us also drinking the companion wines with each tasting dish. If I could give this 3 1/2 stars I would. Everything was beautifully prepared, but unfortunately with one exception (a really excellent crab thermidor) the tastes were often not particularly memorable, simply nice or okay. The wines were however very well chosen. Service was very friendly but our dinner took 4 hours and I think this was too long and the service too slow. The main downstairs dining room is very characterful but we were shunted upstairs into a pretty nondescript (and empty when we arrived) room with little atmosphere even though we'd booked well in advance. My recommendation would be to avoid upstairs if you can. Regulars have clearly learned to ask for a downstairs room! So it was good, but not very good or excellent and certainly not as great as I'd been hoping and I can't see us rushing back.
13/03/2017: We ate here last week to celebrate my daughters 21st. She & I had the vegetarian taster menu and hubby had the meat one! All the food was delicious as was the Wine Flight!

Lovelace, Guildford, 30-45£
16/03/2017: Where to start. Service was first class. Attentive and friendly. Food was beautiful. Full of flavour with wonderful imagination. Atmosphere was serene. Lunchtime menu was enough to provide great meat or veg alternatives. Went treat and it lived up to all expectations
10/03/2017: Went here for the first time for my works Christmas meal in December.The food was exquisite! We had dish, after dish, after dish! Small appetisers served throughout the meal which kept us with plenty to talk about and all were served by exceptional waiting staff.This was a truly delightful experience and at £37.50 per head was extremely reasonable and made me realise that this Restaurant is not only for the elite! I will definitely be returning for a special occassion. Treated like royalty and the cheese board is the best I have ever sampled! presentation was 10/10. Thank you!

The Tudor Room

Thorpe, Runnymede, 60-100£
16/03/2017: The expectation was that we would be having a lovely, upscale dinner in a refined setting and what we received ticked all of the boxes appropriately. The multi-course meal was served by six different wait-staff and was done so attentively but unobtrusively. The portions were quite small, as one would expect in a very grand restaurant, but we felt surprisingly satiated. The presentation of each course was like a ballet... a theatrical production. The menu was very adventurous and held delightful surprises for our palates. Both of us cannot remember when we have had a finer dining experience.
06/03/2017: This was a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The restaurant is a pleasant and comfortable space and the service was excellent. I am quite fussy about my food but I could enjoy every course of this taster menu thanks to the helpfulness of the staff, e.g by offering me a vegetarian starter when I could not eat any of the three choices on the other menu. All four of us were very happy with our food. Having coffee in the lounge by the fire was a lovely way to finish. We are looking forward to another visit.

The Green Almond

Meads, Eastbourne, 20-30£
04/03/2017: The people here are very pleasant and have a simple formula: an inventive but limited menu which changes each month. Focusing on a few meals, they can deliver excellent food very promptly. I've taken friends to dinner here a few times, and have not been disappointed. The atmosphere is casual/cosy - and the wine is good value.
25/02/2017: Great food and service reasonable price would certainly recommend but book early they are often fully booked

Orwells at Shiplake

Shiplake, South Oxfordshire, 60-100£
15/03/2017: The Orwells looks like a pub from the outside, but inside it is all restaurant- stylish but relaxed. The a la carte menu is not cheap but the daily lunch menu offers plenty of choice and is , for the quality, relatively inexpensive. The service is first class and very relaxed. The meals were excellent - the ingredients fresh and well prepared.Definitely one of the best restaurants around Reading.
13/03/2017: The Owells is definitely worth a visit. Whether it is a special occasion or a romantic dinner for two. The chef pays special attention to every dish and seasonal ingredients are his passion. The team is attentive without fuzz and a diverse selection of gins is worth the visit alone. Only disadvantage is that you need to plan a visit ahead.

Knoops

Rye, Rother, 30-45£
19/03/2017: I had never seen such a range of hot chocolate varieties in my life! Friendly and helpful staff, who talked us through the options thoroughly. Highly recommend!
19/03/2017: I go here now at least each week for a fix of 64% chocolate, convincing myself it is just for medicinal purposes, but it is an addictive experience that I don't think I want to give up- just a wonderful treat and me time. I recommend the Mocha which is my morning treat; and son Flo loves the 39% with sea salt or orange - marshmallows are yummy too.Jens is the master sommelier

Restaurant 27

St Jude, Portsmouth, 60-100£
14/03/2017: This was a Saturday evening in August, we joined friends and both our men were celebrating their birthdays - what a brilliant idea, we chose the 'Taster Menu' as not sure what to expect - we weren't disappointed. Even 'liquid pastry' which conjured up all sorts, tasted 'wonderful'!! Try it, if you're a true 'foodie who enjoys good taste' you won't be hungry at the end or disappointed.
13/03/2017: Been to Restaurant 27 many times and always faultless. Staff, friendly and efficient. Food amazing, never disappoints.

Wild Thyme Restaurant and Rooms

Chipping Norton, West Oxfordshire
18/03/2017: So to wildthyme for a Saturday evening. A little excited having read the reviews, but whilst good it was a bit of a let down. Overall atmosphere good and cosy, spolit a bit by being unable to get into the restaurant, booking was for 6.30pm we arrived at 6,27pm to find the doors locked, and whilst we were let into the room quiet quickly it did seem strange that bookings were taken for a time that the doors remained locked. So once in how did we fair? Well the service was consistently good, as for the food, starters of scallops, good, and crab on billini's, average, if you are going to do a sauce with fresh crab you need in my view to ensure that you can taste the crab, I cound'nt. Mains of venison good, rabbit ok but again it was over powered by the sauce, it's not that it was bad, rather it was imprecise, lacking in finesse, reasonable overall but spoilt by the sauce. Deserts were good, a rubbarb cumble, and a prune and Armagnac souffle were tasty and well done, wine was excellent. So I felt let down overall, it wasn't bad but it wasn't 2 rosette level either, may have been a bad night for the chef, who knows. Will think about going again, I have had better in the area for a lot less.
17/03/2017: The food was excellent, the service spot on and the atmosphere relaxed. I will certainly be making a return visit

The Corner House

Thanet Villages, Thanet
18/03/2017: Visited here on Friday to celebrate mine and my mum's birthday, The restaurant had put a birthday card on the table for us, which I thought was a very nice touch. Once again the service was excellent from the time we walked in, to the time we left. Food, as always wonderful. We both really enjoy coming here - it's one of our favourite places to eat.
16/03/2017: We've been here many times for dinner and will continue to do so! Been meaning to leave a review! Our favourite place for a really special dinner. We really love your flat iron steak, homemade ketchup, mushroom sauce! But love everything we've ever had too -nowhere has topped it yet! Lovely staff - always welcoming, lovely atmosphere, great selection of wines, just generally very cosy and a special place indeed! So very well deserved Taste of Kent Award winners! Love your new place in Canterbury too but still prefer your Minster restaurant.

64 Degrees

Regency, Brighton and Hove
15/03/2017: Everyone loves this place, but I just can't. It's an interesting space if somewhat loud and while the service was fine and a few dishes were really good (the cod, the prawns) I just think it's a bit overrated. I'm really sorry. I don't like being negative and maybe I've got a small plate problem, but it just didn't float my boat. For example, the tagliatelle with truffle and egg yolk reminded me of one of my favourite dishes in the world - the truffle fried egg pasta at Buon Ricordo in Sydney. But it was simply no match.
15/03/2017: The food at 64 Degrees is innovative and beautiful, interesting, and prepared with love and passion. You'll see and taste what has gone into its preparation.The idea is to choose 5 to 6 sharing dishes from an exciting collection (they are served one after the other). Loved them all, the Saint Jacques, lamb and beef dishes were my favorites. The Wine list was extensive and well. I prefer sitting at the bar watching the cook work :)

Waterside Inn

Bray, Windsor and Maidenhead, >100£
19/03/2017: My wife and I went for lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary.The setting in beautiful with view on the river.The food is wonderful. We had 3 course menu and we especially liked the starters (prawn and octopus salad, and sorrel and spinach soup).The service is very friendly and attentive.Would highly recommend for a special occasion
19/03/2017: Our car was met and whisked away by the doorman and we were led straight to our table. I was surprised not to be offered a drink at the bar, but not put out as we didn't want one anyway. A large table for two was assigned to us, and we were asked if we preferred to dine opposite each other or side-by-side - a nice touch. I half-expected my drink order of an increasingly-hard-to-find Dubonnet to be a challenge, but it was met graciously. We chose the tasting menu, and enjoyed no less than something like nine courses, including the two pre-tasters and cleansing sorbet between courses. The sommelier couldn't have been more helpful or unstuffy and guided us to wines by the glass, facilitating our choice of a single glass of Sauternes to share to go with the very generous serving of foie gras de canard, my absolute favourite. If there was one tiny criticism, it would be that neither of the two desserts featured any chocolate. Otherwise the individual courses were perfectly cooked and presented, and well balanced. One of the subtle successes of the Waterside is that the timing of service is perfect. At no time did we feel either rushed or having to wait an excessive time for the next course. And the service itself is perfectly judged, with an explanatory visit from the famed maitre d', with waiters who neither hovered nor absented themselves, yet were friendly but respectful at all times.All in all, a great success albeit at a significant cost (just under £500 for two all up). A nice touch was that they discovered that it was a birthday and had a lovely little surprise for the birthday girl at the end of the meal.

Deeson's Restaurant

Westgate, Canterbury, >100£
15/03/2017: Went for a quick meal before the theatre. Booked the table a week before hand although i probably would have got away with it as it wasn't too busy. Food was quick, extremely tasty and the service was top too. I had the lamb which was the best i had ever tasted. Serve good beers and the dessert was incredible. Would totally recommended and we shall be back!
14/03/2017: If English food is you're thing this is where you need to go. Service is great, décor is really nice, brilliant central location. You wont regret going here

Vanilla Pod

Marlow North and West, Wycombe, 60-100£
18/03/2017: exquisite food at such a reasonable price. friendly and professional service with produce and ingredients of the highest standard, highly recommended. will defiantly return.
15/03/2017: I was looking for a small, intimate restaurant in Marlow for lunch for 3 of us. Everything about the place was a delightful surprise: the ambiance, the charming, if rather young, staff and the excellent quality of the food and wine....all at an extremely reasonable price. As the piggy of the group, I ordered the 7 course taster menu while the others just ordered 2 courses from the set lunch menu. The staff made sure my friends were not 'left out' by cleverly timing the courses and bringing small, unexpected, treats for them so that so that we all had something in front of us at any given time. Another delightful surprise was the absence of a compulsory service charge....most surprising these days. I like to tip because I want to and, I can assure you, you will want to!
