The Boars Nest
Though she normally has excellent table manners, a chocolate rice pudding here was so good that Katrina Larkin admits to eating the remainder in the kitchen directly from the bowl. "They have a Sunday set menu at £10 for two courses serving great English classics. Proper comfort food. It's the best Sunday lunch I've eaten at that price," she says. "The restaurant is a converted Edwardian butcher's, with beautifully restored tiles mixed in tastefully with a modern-classic style. If I was ever to open a restaurant I would try to emulate this place in many ways."
