Sunday Times food critic Marina O'Loughlin described her meal here as "sheer life-affirming joy" from "a chef at the peak of his powers", and we couldn't put it better. This is fine dining for people who think they don't like fine dining. Every element is perfection, from the famously relaxed Chapter One hospitality, to the works of art coming out of the kitchen, each one tasting better than you could have imagined.
