Drake's Restaurant

1 offer
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!



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


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.


64 Degrees

2 offers
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 :)


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.


Clos du Marquis

Wonston and Micheldever, Winchester
19/06/2017: G&T's and the usual selection of excellent Canapes, moved on to the Set Friday lunch ably looked after by Garth and his team. Starters of Artichoke Hearts, Crab Soufflé, and kidneys. Mains of Chicken, Calves Liver and an excellent selection of vegetables to suit each dish, all accompanied with a bottle of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.Country cooking at it's best !!
10/06/2017: Excellent service from warm and attentive hosts and superb food, have already booked to go back to share the experience with some friends who haven't been before.


Kathton House

Sturry South, Canterbury
16/03/2017: Went with friends. First visit to this restaurant and it will not be the last. The food and service were excellent..In addition, the restaurant table settings exuded "quality"
16/03/2017: We were offered a choice of table, food was amazing, only one veggie option on the menu but the courgette & aubergine parmagano was very tasty. My husband said his fillet steak was beautifully could. Wine menu offered plenty of choice and was very reasonably priced. Have heard this place is up for sale? If this is the case we Definitely want to return before it changes hands. They deserve their trip advisor rating.



Newport North, Isle of Wight
16/03/2017: Lunch is very reasonably priced and an absolute treat. The food is wonderful. Robert Thompson is helpful and charming and I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.
14/03/2017: Omg get in my belly! This place is amazing whilst waiting for our food we were given a entrée Oh my they were delicious. The staff and chef's was very welcoming, was also told if we book anything that is not on the menu they will try their hardest to provide it. The only down side to the experience was we booked the table for 8.30 didn't get seated till 9 and couldn't find us on the books the staff did a good job to try and hide this mistake (but I sneaked a peek at the book), but I believe the food made up for the mistakes.


Burr's Restaurant

Newport Central, Isle of Wight, <20£
16/03/2017: Visited first time last night but it won't be the last.Every aspect of the restaurant was nothing short of first class.Great ambiance, great service, fabulous food superbly cooked, real value for money.Honestly can't praise it enough.Have lived on The Island for 13 years and this is probably the best restaurant we've been too.Can't imagine why it's taken us so long to find it.Thank you to everybody at Burr's.
13/03/2017: We love Burrs, over the years they have maintained an excellent standard of service combined with amazing food. We have never been disappointed and the fact that you need to book in advance just confirms its popularity. Looking forward to dining there in the near future.


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.


Thewitchez Photo Design Cafe Bar

Queen's Park, Brighton and Hove
18/03/2017: I cannot recommend this place highly enough. An extensive menu with something for everyone and such a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff who clearly love sourcing high quality food and turning it into such tasty dishes. Personal favourites are the Sea Wolf starter ( pickled herring with a variety of accompaniments with or without a shot!), the Schnitzel and the Sea Bass. A great variety of desserts and top quality coffee finished off our evening but we will definitely be returning here soon.Take some time out of the hustle and bustle of Brighton and seek out The Witchez - you won't be disappointed.
18/03/2017: The team here make this such a warm and friendly place. They go out of there way to make you feel at home. The food is just delicious and full of flavour. Would highly recommend it.


The Sportsman

Seasalter, Canterbury
19/03/2017: Dined here with my fiancé on Friday 17th. He had booked it ages ago after reading the rave reviews etc we have been to many other Michelin starred restaurants so this was a must. Disappointed is the only word I can use to describe it. Fair enough, the reviews said it wasn't pretty to look at, but, that doesn't matter as long as the food impresses. It didn't. I only gave 2 stars because I enjoyed the wine and the other was because of my intolerances, they changed the tasting menu to suit me. So many fish courses was overkill, the lamb was at least 50% fat, the dishes just didn't 'look' good on the plates. It was also very noisy due to 2 large parties being in. We had to wait a very long time between courses. We left 4 hours after arrival, feeling hungry and like we had been robbed of £180.I love Michelin starred restaurants and feel they are worth every penny when they get it right. Unfortunately the Sportsman didn't. Also, one of the other parties seemed to have a mixture of diners using a la carte and tasting menus? I would have preferred this due to my intolerances but was told the whole table had to have the same? Maybe if I had personally known the servers as these guests did it may have been an option.
15/03/2017: This ain't no gastro pub, this is fine dining!We visited The Sportsman yesterday for my husband's birthday to embark on a culinary journey through their full tasting menu.I was feeling a little apprehensive because my husband's last birthday treat had been The Fat Duck which was sheer perfection and was so sublime that I had an out of body experience. We had seen this pub in an episode of Tom Kerridge's tv show and decided to try it out.Although it's in a state of flux with a major refurb, the work is almost complete and it looks great. New tables, fab new conservatory and long gone are the old blue loos which have given way to glass, oak and monochrome tiled bathrooms that look smart and fresh.We were given a warm welcome upon our arrival by the ladies who work front of house. These women are a credit to this restaurant and take tremendous pride in working there. They are passionate about good food and its provenance and delight in telling you about the local ingredients, homemade curry powder, freshly churned butter, delectable apple jam, foraged seaweed, produce from the garden, homemade bread and other Kentish specialties when they announce each dish. We had an interesting conversation with our server about the Marmite qualities of sea buckthorn berries (!) which was a memorable treat.We decided to be surprised and not read about the dishes we were about to receive. What followed was so delightful, pleasing, sweet, airy, fishy, meaty, succulent, gooey, creamy, tart, pickled, buttery, crunchy, savoury, subtle and yet complex that I became almost giddy with joy.Ping! Those were my tastebuds as the first amuse bouche hit my palette. Had my mouth been hibernating all winter? Suddenly they were on high alert and screaming for more delicacies. Oh boy, they were not disappointed.The highlight of the meal was the oyster dish and the crab. The absolute pinnacle was the Bromley apple soufflé with salted caramel ice cream. This dessert was virtually a Spring day manifested on to a plate. The entire meal was pure pleasure from beginning to end.A few minor quibbles:1. The bread had a distinct chill to it and I was hoping it would be warm or at least room temperature. Warm bread and butter is one of life's luxuries.2. During lunch, the older waitress snatched away our bread board and said we wouldn't get anymore or we wouldn't have room for pudding. I'm sure it was said in a jokey way, but it seemed extremely rude. I was hoping for a little bread to mop up some of the lamb juices, but I was denied that guilty pleasure.3. When the bill arrived, a donation to the Water Aid charity had been added without my consent and no information was given about what the charity entailed. Luckily, I knew what it was and felt it was a worthy cause, but a little more information would be appreciated before it's automatically added to the bill.However, the definition of a 3 star Michelin restaurant is "exceptional cuisine that's worth a special journey". Given the fact that I would crawl across an ocean of discarded Whitstable oyster shells to get to this place again. I reckon it's got a couple of stars long overdue.Thank you so much to the staff and chefs for an outstanding meal and keep up the phenomenal work you are doing.The Sportsman is the best restaurant in Kent, hands down and has earned the accolade of my new favourite restaurant!
