Abbey, Bath and North East Somerset
24/02/2017: The service from the moment we entered the restaurant was superb. The ambience was amazing and the food was delicious. The homemade bread was sublime and every dish on the menu tempted my taste buds. It was a joy to eat fine food that hasn't been deconstructed, or almost non existent on the plate. Next time I'm in Bath I know where I will be dining!
24/02/2017: Having read numerous 5 star reviews on trip advisor (no idea how this place has 6000+ reviews though?) I had very high expectations of this place.Firstly, booking is tricky, very limited availability and made to feel I was lucky to be given a booking at all. This added to my sense of expectation!The food was 'nice' but absolutely nothing that would have me rushing back for another trip. The lamb was actually overcooked but I did not want to embarrass my guests by complaining. The service is overly pretentious for what is basically an Italian bistro and whilst it is understandable that in keeping with the theme the staff seem to be elusively Italian, it seemed there was a bit of a language barrier at times. On the positive side, good value for money.


Restaurant Nathan Outlaw

St Endellion, Cornwall,Isles of Scilly, 60-100£
17/02/2017: My husband has always been a fan of Nathan Outlaw and so we went for dinner to celebrate his birthday. We both agreed that although it was the most we had ever spent on a meal, we would rather go out for dinner in places this good once a year than go out for dinner at mediocre places more often! We both love fish and everything that Nathan Outlaw cooked was exceptional. We had eight courses with the accompanying wine flight over four hours and it felt more like an event than dinner! The staff were all brilliant - friendly, knowledgeable and happy to answer questions and chat.
14/02/2017: Ok so it's really quite expensive but it will give you a long lasting memory that is worth every penny.Went to celebrate a big birthday, great attention to detail from welcome, to waiting ,to the food itself.I can still taste that Porthilly sauce on the exquisite piece of gurnard which stood out amongst all the other great courses.Met Nathan as well who was courteous and friendly. Will save up to go back again one day.Delicious......



St Agnes, Cornwall,Isles of Scilly
20/02/2017: I have wanted to visit this restaurant for a while and made it at last! We were not disappointed. We regularly enjoy Sunday lunch at a variety of venues around our area, but this was as good as it gets. After a friendly greeting and being settled at our table, we were given complimentary bread to dip with olive oil and balsamic. Water was brought to our table, again without asking - not always the case. I chose a delightful 'special' drink on offer, followed by one of us choosing a starter from an excellent choice, a roast main each next and one dessert. Again from a good choice. All lovely flavours. Looking forward to a repeat visit soon.
14/02/2017: Visited with my boyf in September 2016 and the food was top notch!We both had lobster as our main and it was the best we've had. Staff were brilliant and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Would definitely recommend.


The Chef's Dozen

Campden-Vale, Cotswold
17/02/2017: Visited whilst staying in a lovely cottage in Chipping Campden. The service from start to finish was excellent. I am fussy with food but my other half loves trying something different so I went along. Very glad I did. It was quickly identified by the waitress that I was unsure of the menu, I was quickly put at ease that they could adapt dishes, which for me was unheard of. The wine choice was vast, but living in South Africa for many years I recommend the False Bay Shiraz, an excellent choice. Overall excellent food, superb service and very affordable. We will return soon.
04/02/2017: Had a lovely dinner here! One small dining room that feels like someone's oversized dining room. The food was seasonal and focussed on local, and mainly game-type options - every single one was beautiful to look at, and delicious. Recommend the tasting menu - you may not be sure of what's coming next but, boy is it good! May not be a good choice for a vegetarian, to be honest, you just won't appreciate the fab things they do with the meat!


Couch's Great House

Looe West and Lansallos, Cornwall,Isles of Scilly, >100£
20/02/2017: We travel down from Newcastle to this fab fishing village as much as possible, would not dream of not going to this FABULOUS RESTRAURANT here, food is up there with the very best we have had beautiful food all over the world and and this chef & his staff have what it takes to make your night out THE BEST EVER,,,,,, thanks so much to the waitress for asking chef to make me up an unbelievable blue "cheese board" A TRUELY FANTASTIC FOODY EXPERIENCE, I have ate in all pubs & cafes & restraurant sin little polly & nothing comes close to this place, THANK YOU ALL FOR A FABULOUS MEAL ON FRIDAY 17-02-2016,,, CAN NOT WAIT TO COME BACK
15/02/2017: Lovely environment with amazing food. The only reason didn't give this restaurant an excellent was the service. Few issues, not having cheese for a pudding but taking order for it anyway, asked for only one 4 course but 2 came out and had to collect our own coats, the last one was the obvious attention to the locals compared to us holiday makers. However overall a very nice place to eat.


Blacksands Bistro

Ilfracombe Central, North Devon
25/02/2017: Very good accommodation with good hosts. Lovely warm welcome. Clean rooms with first class food.Had a lovely stay not in the area we planned but that was our fault. Would stay in the area again.
11/01/2017: Was not expecting a great deal from this small restaurant set back off the road, but the menu looked good and in this case looks didn't deceive. It's a very well run family affair with some great 60s memorabilia and music to accompany an excellent meal in a friendly atmosphere. Went with the family and there were dishes to suit all.


Cafe Cloud

Newquay Central, Cornwall,Isles of Scilly
09/01/2017: I popped in to Cafe Cloud late one afternoon after a long walk and was not disappointed! It was very quiet when I arrived so I had my choice of seats. I chose a Cornish afternoon tea which was absolutely amazing! Little sandwiches, scones, clotted cream, jam and of course a pot of tea. It was beautifully presented too. The staff were really lovely and I'd definitely return!
20/11/2016: Warm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere....perfect scones can't visit Cornwall without at least trying one clotted cream scone.


The Wheel House

Falmouth Arwenack, Cornwall,Isles of Scilly
21/02/2017: This place is amazing. Very intimate setting with amazing local seafood. Make sure you book before going though, as it's very small.
19/02/2017: Our second visit and we were looked after brilliantly by Tina, Flo and the team. We left Tina to chose our meal and the seafood was faultless as ever.Fun, relaxed and real...... if only this could be replicated in our part of the world!


Chapel House Tea Rooms

Dunster and Timberscombe, West Somerset
20/02/2017: What a little gem!! Was able to stop for a latte and a piece of delicious apple cake which was heated for me too without having to ask. Really lovely to be able to take my Pooch in with me, great service, great hosts, lovely crafty bits to buy too. Thank you for such a warm welcome, see you in June xx
18/02/2017: Our first trip to Dunster this year & the first stop as usual was the chapel tea rooms where we had hot drinks & delicious toasted tea cakes with local jam. We always have a very warm welcome there from the owners. Will definitely call in next time we are in the area. Joy & Malcolm


The Whole Hog

Lyme Regis, West Dorset
21/02/2017: Great value (£4). Loaded fresh chicken/pork bap with all the trimmings. Simple takeaway service with a friendly couple running the place. *Warning - when it's gone, it's gone, closed at about 2pm on Saturday 18th Feb* This place is in high demand!
18/02/2017: Perfectly roasted pork with crackling, apple sauce, roast onions, stuffing and gravy - all packed wonderfully into a soft roll. Our children LOVED this - and excellent value too.


Everyday Thai

Frome Vale, Bristol, City of
19/02/2017: The food was fantastic, in a clean friendly atmosphere. It was the first time we had eaten as a family at a Thai restaurant and we were not disappointed. My son is cooking Thai food for his GCSE and the owner and his wife took time to talk through with him how to improve on the dishes. I would have no heistation in going again
16/02/2017: Absolutely delicious food and a super friendly service. My sister persuaded us to try Thai food for the first time and we were not disappointed. We will definitely be visiting again when we return to Bristol!


The Cotswold Food Store & Cafe

Fosseridge, Cotswold, <20£
25/02/2017: Visited the Farm Shop recently and was greeted by the very helpful proprietor who advised on their vast selection of local cheeses.Because of the friendliness shown we decided to drop by for breakfast a couple of days later. We were not disappointed. Really good quality ingredients beautifully presented and served by a polite waitress. Prices too are very reasonable.Will definitely return when in the area.On leaving we passed the chef and I congratulated him on a splendid breakfast andon speaking we could tell he was very enthusiastic about local fresh produce.
21/02/2017: I love good honest simple food. Don't muck about just sell me quality produce and / or a tasty plate of food.This place does both and by the looks of things, they're expanding. Great local produce and we'll sourced additional deli foods. Friendly knowledgeable staff with time to help you choose. Then a cafe with a generous simple menu and fresh food a plenty. Parking and a separate toilet block this is a bonus place to stop off for a quick break, browse and shop to stock up the supplies. Maybe a bit on the expensive side for a deli but worth every penny IMHO


The Masons Arms

Bishop's Nympton, North Devon, 20-30£
25/02/2017: Visited The Masons Arms with my partner for a 3 course meal for his birthday and was the best meal we've had in a long time. The service was discrete and friendly...not overly pretentious so made you feel at ease from the moment you walked in. It was a beautiful and homely inside...perfect for a special treat. The food was delicious and full of flavour! for starters we had the duck liver parfait and I had seared tuna coated in delicate Asian spice, perfect combination. To follow was sea bass with curried mussels and my partner had the pork belly, again the flavours were great and portion sizes very well balanced. Last but not least our desserts were to die for...Chocolate ganache with passion fruit, not too sweet and beautifully presented. I would like to thank The Masons Arms for an amazing experience, we will definitely be visiting again and recommend to all!
21/02/2017: Our first visit was yesterday to attend a chicken masterclass with Mark and his team to celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary. As committed foodies, I cannot believe we have lived in the area for nearly 5 years and never visited - it has been on a radar but we've taken our time to get there. We had a wonderful morning learning how to joint a chicken correctly with our fellow attendees and a lovely lunch where he and his team could not be more accommodating to our personal and rather long list of dietary requirements (Coeliac, lactose, no fried foods, no red meat - enough to send a 'precious' Michelin chef insane but Mark gave the impression that he was not that sort of chef and it really was not an issue and all I can say is that there are a lot of other so-called first class establishments that could take a leaf out of The Masons Arms book when it comes to customer service, ambiance, friendliness and all round professionalism. It is right up there in my opinion. Moving on to the chicken lunch, the poached chicken that I enjoyed was accompanied by a wonderful morel broth which we all watched being cooked in what can only be described as one of the smallest commercial kitchens I have ever been in. It was, of course, extremely moist and tasty and accompanied by the most delicious red cabbage side dish together with new potatoes cooked in the same broth and tenderstem broccoli. I declined the starter purely because I am not a fan of leeks but my husband loved it and the pudding went down very well with my fellow diners which was a cheesecake that elicited the required "oohs" and "aahs" as well as silence at points - pure food porn was how one fellow diner described it! I ought to add the entire masterclass attendees all sat together on a long table and with our shared love of good food, all barriers were quickly broken down and new friendships formed. During coffee the very talented chef/patron Mark Dodson joined us and was friendly and relaxed and seemed genuinely happy to pass on some of his well honed skills - I just got the impression this was not a money making exercise but a chance to show what he and his team were about and to that end, myself and my husband have booked for lunch at the end of April and indeed are keeping an eye on upcoming masterclasses as I know we will be returning and recommending to friends and family. I ought to mention Mark's wife Sarah who, as front of house, really does complete a wonderful team. I cannot recommend the Mason's Arms highly enough and look forward to our return visit with relish which, by the way, you can buy as they offer chutney, marmalade and books as souvenirs!



Falmouth Gyllyngvase, Cornwall,Isles of Scilly
21/02/2017: Me and my partner visited here on the 4th Feb and being vegan this was literally heaven. It's a really small but charming little restaurant. We booked a week in advance and thank god we did as it was fully booked. They had to turn people away at the door which has got to be a good sign. Even though the menu is limited, all the food was excellent from the starter to the desert. The cocktails and beer were great too and all reasonably priced. This place would be 5 stars if the staff could be a bit more cheerful. They weren't rude, they just seemed a bit miserable and not very engaging. This didn't ruin the night for us though.All in all would definitely recommend for vegan and non vegans as the food is great. A must for any visit to Falmouth!
17/02/2017: I have been to Falmouth many times over the years as my son is studying here. I have always wanted to try this restaurant but was dissuaded by my carnivorous son. This was however one of the best if not the best restaurant I have been to and I am not even a vegetarian. The food was fresh, very tasty and reasonably priced. Lovely cocktails and coffee. I left feeling full but not bloated. They give a student discount and the service is friendly and unpretentious. The next time I visit Falmouth I am definitely coming back. My advice is make sure you book because the establishment is small and very popular.


Gidleigh Park

Drewsteignton, West Devon, 45-60£
22/02/2017: Food - exceptional. Service - exceptional. Setting - glorious. This is our one special treat and it never lets us down.
21/02/2017: Apparently the restaurant just re-opened with the transfer to new Chef Michael Wignall and it's not often I get to eat in the same high end place two nights in a row but everything was properly high end. First night the ten course tasting menu, with matching wine flight. Lots of lovely taste experiences and beautifully balanced for my appetite, satisfied but not over full at the end. The following night a la carte but there are a few little amuse bouche too, to add to the three courses we had. The highlight for me was the turbot. All expertly served, certainly worth a trip to the 'wilds' of Devon.
