"Gott, who has a pretty divine name for any chef, has brought a passion and flair to this place. The menu couldn’t be more seasonal, which is important, but what I found impressive was that he was really pushing his little kitchen to the limit. Many chefs would have taken the easy route, but everything, from the butchering, to the proper sauces, was in-house, which made it all personal and special. And it all worked." 

Secret Diner 2017

5 Stars

"A refreshingly honest bistro with a homely interior. The self-taught chef hunts and forages, using the local larder to full effect. Passionately seasonal dishes will appeal to one and all; check the blackboard for the daily specials."

Michelin Guide 2018


"This intimate, simply decorated bistro has found its groove since chef Max Gott took over in 2016."

Waitrose Good Food Guide 2018
