"Timings are precise here: both the vegetables and the meat were so differently flavoursome, yielding but not oversoftened." READ REVIEW

"Belly of pork was cooked long and slow; it came with a top-drawer barbecue-style sauce, pearl barley and chorizo in the form of risotto, the smokiness emphasised further by the use of smoked olive oil." READ REVIEW

"The trouble with food this rich and moreish is that you're unable to leave a polite little heap on the side of your plate, and so we were all too full for pudding... I intend to come back." READ REVIEW

"Wild Honey gives me all that is good about Arbutus – modern, well-cooked food, a flexible wine list, and a reasonable bill – in a more comfortable and charming package." READ REVIEW

"Arriving in its own fat little cast iron pot, my friend's roast young chicken with sweetcorn had a melting, multi-layered depth of flavour, accompanied by a perfect, fluffy summer savoury pancake I couldn't keep my fork off, even though I was distracted by possibly the best fillet of halibut (£17.95) I've ever eaten."

"Infuriatingly, the beef had not come out as soft this time as last – I guess because of a variance in the fibrousness of the meat – and offered itself up more humbly for a little gentle criticism." READ REVIEW

"Just like in Soho, though, service is thoughtful and efficient. And the food ‘offer’ is also pretty much identical." READ REVIEW

"All four starters are sensational. The "traditional corned beef" isn't traditional corned beef at all... It's light but buttery, there's plenty of it and it doesn't remind you of school dinners for a second." READ REVIEW

"Without exception, we liked what we ate. The soupe au pistou was a sparkling, Southern France minestrone – good stock packed with pasta, hearty vegetables and the perfume of basil. Wild rabbit and foie gras were processed within an inch of their lives to create an incredibly silky, light-as-mousse boudin blanc." READ REVIEW

"The menu remains mostly loyal to French bourgeois cooking. Five of us gave it a thorough workout and hits outnumbered misses." READ REVIEW
