When André Michelin created his guide on French restaurants in 1900, his principle concern was the amount of tread used on tyres to reach certain restaurants. I'm not sure how he would feel about walking the four miles from Bath for lunch but it was worth having my Church's resoled for. This is a gorgeous pub cut out of the countryside run by an incredibly welcoming and jolly landlord with a nose for a decent Bordeaux. The pub itself is modern but with rustic touches, feeling airy and bright during the summer but undoubtedly warm and cosy in the winter. The food is an absolute triumph and presented with such style it would put many a glamorous West End eatery to shame. The wine list is excellent with a small skim on some very good vintages – if wine isn't your thing then the selection of beers and local ciders without any huffing as the glassware is removed. You can eat a full three course meal here for £18 and the only dissapointment will be that eventually you will have to leave.
If you are looking to get out of London and into the ‘country’ then look no further – they can even put you up for the night.
