Square Meal Review of The Hand & Flowers ?

Tom Kerridge is a larger-than-life chef with a big personality, a passion for British produce and a refreshingly unpretentious way of doing things. He’s also become a big name on TV and has two Michelin stars under his belt, so it’s no surprise that tables are at a premium in his highly lauded flagship venue. Luckily, the bar has recently been extended, with four stools available on a first come, first served basis for those wanting to eat without frills. Although The Hand & Flowers looks and feels like a pub, the food suggests a cleverly reworked out-of-town restaurant (with prices to match) – think tenderloin of pork with pickled mustard leaf, malt-glazed cheek, garlic sausage and dauphinoise potato, beer-roast chicken with thyme-braised cabbage, garlic and black truffle, textbook blueberry soufflé and “the best chips in the world”. Set lunches are good value, chirpy staff know the ropes, and four desirable bedrooms are housed in two nearby cottages.

    Ross eats :: The Hand and Flowers

    Whenever a restaurant has a sizable waiting list you seem to get one of two experiences; either it blows your mind and is worth the wait or you leave thinking that all the build up and anticipation was really not worth it. The Hand and Flowers refers to itself as a ‘pub restaurant with rooms’ and we had over a 3 month wait for a table and a chef, Tom Kerridge, renowned for cooking food with ‘big flavours’ (in other words, my favourite type of food) who has wowed on each TV appearance; things were stacking certainly stacking up to go one of two ways here...
