Outstanding dinner at Mere. The food was interesting and perfectly cooked. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The barman/mixologist is a genius and the bill was less than expected. We had an amazing time, and I will definitely be back soon.

About the restaurant
Michelin starred Frog by Adam Handling is a place to really submerge yourself in a theatrical show. You’re facing the kitchen, the chefs come to your table and you are able to really interact with every member of the team. Frog is luxury in an environment where you feel comfortable being whoever you are and where all elements in the restaurant are connected to offer a truly memorable experience.

The dishes are very emotional and they all mean something to Adam. Each and every one of the dishes has a story behind it, whether it’s a memory from Adam’s childhood or something that has inspired him or the team.

Reimagining their much-loved restaurant, Casa will offer a contemporary, accessible, yet refined take on traditional Italian dining, acting as a sibling to Peter’s Michelin-starred Spanish institution Paco Tapas next door. The 66-cover restaurant will offer a similarly relaxed environment in which to enjoy a dynamic menu created by Peter and Executive Chef Joel Breakwell.

Dishes will be made using high quality ingredients from the very best Italian and British producers, working with many of the same local suppliers that the team have partnered with for years. As a nod to the original Casamia

About the restaurant
Fergus Henderson’s original home of “Nose to Tail Eating” opened in a former smokehouse around the corner from Smithfield Market in 1994.

Celebrating the finest of indigenous British produce and making the most of what is seasonally best whilst applying straight forward cooking techniques, St. John is now celebrated as one of the 50 Best Restaurants in the World and in 2009 was awarded its first Michelin Star.

Nose to tail eating means that, where appropriate, every part of the animal should be put to good use in the kitchen and so along with Roast Beef and Lemon Sole, diners will find Rolled Pig’s Spleen, Kidneys and Ox Heart, Liver and Chitterlings as well as the Roast Bone Marrow & Parsley Salad, something of a ‘signature’ dish.

About the restaurant
Celebrated French chef Claude Bosi launched Claude Bosi at Bibendum back in 2017, with a ground-floor seafood and oyster bar and first-floor restaurant which is ‘unashamedly fine dining’, with the chef's signature contemporary and light-hearted flair.

The a la carte menu features some of his signature classics and the chef’s Michelin-starred alma matter, with ingredients sourced predominantly from the British Isles and France. The striking upstairs dining room with its dramatic and iconic floor-to-ceiling stained glass windows has been redesigned to house a larger central open kitchen. The light and airy dining room will feature the original Conran chairs with a soft colour palate of muted blues.

We had the 3-4 course surprise Market Menu for lunch to celebrate my birthday and it was wonderful. Service was outstanding (with special attentions like a birthday card signed by the team and a surprise chocolate pastry with candle), and the food incredibly tasty with sometimes daring associations (like coq au vin sauce with monkfish). They have a wide selection of wines and a good selection of coffees (I had the Heidsieck Brut Champagne and the Hawaiian Kona coffee). We will definitely go back.

About the restaurant
Welcome to Freemasons at Wiswell, where fabulous food is served in an elegant and relaxed rural setting. The inn is located in the 'chocolate box' village of Wiswell, near Clitheroe, in the picturesque Ribble Valley. Since our transformation and reopening in the summer of 2009, we have created a loyal clientele and a genuine home-from-home atmosphere. Flag stone floors, walls in muted heritage colours, antique rugs and furniture, period paintings and prints all unite to create a stylish and comfortable setting. Our bar has an excellent selection of traditional cask conditioned ales from award-winning independent breweries and is complemented by a superb cellar with over 250 wines from around the world. While the surroundings and welcome are inviting, the main reason to visit is, of course, our food. Chef/patron Steven Smith has created a unique and diverse menu that perfectly matches the style and atmosphere, and we will be delighted to welcome you for a true gastronomic experience.

I read about The Freemasons in the Saturday Times in 2023. It was everything they had said and more. After a very muddy 3 hour walk around Wiswell it was the perfect ending to our day. Seated upstairs next to a warm fire and looked after by very polite and attentive staff we savoured every mouthful of the wonderful food and vegan food. It was a wrench to leave not just the table but the cozy and friendly ambience of The Freemasons Inn but we will return, that is for certain.

About the restaurant
When you come to Opheem, you get an insight into the inner workings of my mind. We’re striving to push the boundaries with Indian flavours, but with cooking techniques from all over the world, some traditional, and some very modern. At Opheem, I’ll be using the same paints as I’ve always done, to create a very different picture, on a very, very different canvas. Why? Because to evolve and adapt is what makes us human, and cooking is what sets us apart from the animals.

We have been here a number of times, but tonight was the best Evening yet. It was a culinary masterclass from a chef that is well worth 2 Michelin stars. We are fortunate enough to dine in Michelin star restaurants on a very regular basis, but Aktar is now a truly excellent chef, with an amazing Sommelier & a team that works in total harmony. A Tip: don't skimp- go for the full 10 course Tasting menu & matching Wine flight. It is well worth the money & takes the experience to the next level.

We all look forward to welcoming you to The Crown with a new sense of excitement.

Many of you will already know us from The Beehive at White Waltham where we have been greeting and feeding our visitors for the past nine years. We have now sold the Beehive and our full attention is now on the Crown,

My aim has always been to offer beautiful food in an authentic English pub. Dishes that are heart-warming, seasonal, and packed with flavor. All I wanted was for our guests to return home happy and contented! This aim established our reputation and remains firmly in place today.

At The Crown, our hospitality will be based on exactly the same principles - seasoned, I hope, with a pinch of added ambition in the kitchen. And on the floor front-of-house, you will be greeted and looked after by Amber Flint and her team.

We look forward to welcoming you.

The Harwood Arms re-opened in September 2008 after some much needed refurbishment.
This rural haven in the middle of Fulham is a collaboration between Brett Graham of the famed Ledbury restaurant, Mike Robinson of the acclaimed Pot Kiln pub in rural Berkshire and Edwin Vaux from the famous Vaux brewery.
The idea is to provide Londoners with a really relaxed venue for eating the finest British produce, cooked amazingly well, accompanied by excellent beer and wine at a great price.
