William Drabble gone and Miles Nixon is producing excellent plates of food. We have eaten about four times in the last couple of months and he deserves to be up there with some of the best. Canape, amuse bouche and pre-dessert always included with a la carte menu and even these are superbly executed with great depth of flavour – no shyness with flavours and seasoning to be found here. Not many one stars can claim all this. Each time, he has served to impeccable consistent standard…a bit of an alchemist one could say! Another example of a fine chef being passed over by Michelin, so we must continue to fly the flag for him on Squaremeal. He deserves it every bit as much as his local competitors viz. Tom Kerridge (when he was at 1 star, not sure yet whether he deserves 2) and Adam Simmonds, who at last has got his back.
The only big neg' is the atmosphere. Musically, It's stuck in a time warp (it can't surely be the chef's choice) and decor doesn't quite do it for me either (though judging by other reviews here it evidently appeals).
Some may find the wine a bit pricey, but we haven't been disappointed yet. Staff are welcoming and knowledgeable. An establishment which doesn't quite live up to the talent who resides in the kitchen. We'll definitely be back to test how long standards can be maintained. Hopefully he's up to doing quite a few ‘Miles’ yet.
