It’s hard to know how best to give a list of restaurants that we like. There are so many restaurants and at the end of the day, people have different tastes. So at the end of the day we decided to break down the list into the following categories
This page is still under construction, so have a little patience!
This category contains restaurants that deliver fantastic food at their own level of the restaurant hierarchy, and of which we never tire visiting. Unfortunately one or two are very expensive, so meals there are a rare treat or, in some cases, a once in a lifetime meal.
These are places we find ourselves going back to again and again. They may not be in the top echelons of fine dining but they consistently offer good food at fair prices.
You know sometimes there are places that seem to be popular with everyone else but you just can’t warm to the place. Maybe you’re not convinced by the food, maybe you found service snooty, maybe your face just doesn’t seem to fit … or maybe you just don’t know. However, you haven’t quite given up, so you go back every now and then to see if you can move them up a category. Well, this is the category for these restaurants.
This would be a really long list but fear of being sued for libel means that we’ll have to keep it to ourselves. It obviously contains several fast food chains due to the industialised lack of respect shown to food. It also contains many more ‘normal’ restaurants that are simply not up to standard. This list is no respecter of reputation and features several well-known and feted restaurants that we find often do not deliver good food and very rarely good value.
